With a small kitchen, a god send, it does it all, steamer, slow cooker, air frye
Good purchase. Got one with superficial damage at reduced cost. In reality only the box was a little damaged but not the product.
Excellent for 2/3 people. Saves energy not using the main oven. I cooked a chicken in a little over 30 mins, used the Air Fryer function the most. Also pressure cooker for stock etc.
so far happy with purchase. Lots of recipes on line on Pinterest etc.
We used it basically everyday since it came! Air fryer cauliflower fab, chips fab, pressure cooking beef stroganoff fab, pressure cook pulled chicken (from frozen as well as thawed) fab. shaksuka fab and pressure cooked chilli and bolognese for speed fab! Still to try rice and a couple of other bits but really happy with the purchase.
Very easy to use, very versatile and the food tastes awesome. I use my own recipes roast potatoes in 20 mins how good is that!!
his item in particular is excellent as you can do virtually anything in it, and it’s easy to move around.
it takes time to get used to but is a big help.
the air fryer / oven fits 8″ round tin. drawback is it would only properly fry / bake one tray at a time and not much quicker than a regular fan oven.
generally about pressure cookers it’s good to know, that – yes it’s a real time saver, but is not always as fast as it seems, i.e. if you calculate the heating up time for e.g. cooked apples and the cooling down time, it adds up.
This is a great product, I use it most days. I hardly ever put my main oven on now as I can cook most things in this., so saving energy and money.
Love this appliance, but wish the manufacturers had supplied a paper cookery book covering all the programmes rather than expecting customers having to search online for information.
Bit of a pain to clean, and a bit too quick with the ‘burn food’ alarms on occasion, but overall what a great piece of kit! Pretty much use it for everything except fried eggs and pizza now.
It feels like trial and error using this so be prepared for the possibility of over/under cooked food.
I’ve only used the pressure cooker and air fryer modes on this so far, but I will evaluate them now:
The pressure cooker function is amazing, and although I was really confused with how the timer function first works, I’ve finally started to understand it all more now. The timer starts once pressure is up, so don’t set it thinking that it’s total time. Adjust accordingly.
As for other functions: I’ve found that the air frying is nothing like my sole purpose air fryer. It’s more like the old turbo ovens and seems to toast the top layer more than blowing it around all sides. Maybe this is just in comparison with my personal experiences though and others will enjoy it. It does actually alert you to turn the items around half way through the timer, so they’ve noticed and added for that.
Cleaning is really easy! All the internal parts get dishwasher and I hand wash the main steel pot. Nothing has gotten cooked on yet and been unremovable either. Good quality materials all around.
The burn sensor for the pressure cooker also isn’t great. I decided to do a curry and it ended up stuck to the bottom, but because it was pressured, there was still sufficient water in there for it not to trip.
Other things that annoy me are the lack of a device for pulling out the steaming basket when it’s been used. Instead, you have to rely on ingenuity from yourself so you don’t scold yourself getting the shelf and basket out of the pot. A simple, removable, plastic handle/device would have completed my enjoyment of this product. The hot stand is also a bit of a joke for me. It has to be lined up perfectly to act as a lid for the air fryer but even then it just falls off randomly when being picked up. The drip container is also located at the rear of the unit – really awkward to be honest. I hope they revise that in later models.
Also be cautious of the height of this product. If you have wall mounted cupboards above all of your surfaces, it might not be for you. I bought the larger litre model and it’s so difficult to remove the pressure lid without getting water everywhere because I have to lift and move it to the side, rather than instantly tipping it back into the pot.
Overall, I would recommend. But there are some issues.
Easy to clean, easy to use and the pressure pot is really good for quick cooking. I will recommend it.
We are over the moon with purchase! It cooks to perfection, meat and fish are crispy but succulent at the sage time! Food cooked is full of flavour in no time! Easy to clean. Best buy eve
Great smart pot! Save cooking time and make your meal perfect!
I initially bought the instant pot to cook pulses and dals, and thought I might as well get the air fryer version to try it out, and I am delighted. This has become my favourite appliance, not only is it great for its intended purpose of very effective pressure cooking, its speed and versatility means it has replaced a lot of alternative methods for everyday foods, and I’m using it for everything from toast to boiled eggs. For a while my hob wasn’t working and I barely noticed as I could use the instant pot for everything I needed to do. I got it in an Amazon sale for 119 and that seems like a fantastic bargain to me as I have used it so much.
Instant pot is easy to use and easy to clean. You manage your time while cooking
Great unit, really does almost everything, only down side is have 2 lids, had they found a way to combine the functionality in one lid it would be perfect. Excellent as a pressure cooker and air frye
Very versatile bit of kit , have used most days since it was delivered .
From roasts to pasta bakes , chips to casseroles it’s been great .
Wish I’d bought one before now .
Love the smart features,Air frying is top class could do with non stick inner pa
Simple to use, easy to clean, most internal fitments are dishwasher safe
I was looking at pressure cookers, but I was also tempted to get an air fryer too. We just don’t have the space to store two units, so I was very interested in this unit. Fortunately is was on a special offer, meaning that it was cheaper than buying my preferred separate pressure cooker and air fryer units.
I’m happy with my choice with the small reservation (hence 4 stars) about the size of the air fryer basket. you can air fry without the basket meaning the space available is larger, but there’s nowhere for the juices to drip away during cooking.
As my primary usage of this will be for pressure cooking, I can live with this.
In the few days we’ve had it, I’ve done a whole 2Kg chicken (28 mins pressure + 10 mins to crisp up with the air fryer lid) and it was superb, well cooked moist meat with crispy skin. Pork loin chops in the air fryer weren’t quite as successful, I think I did them for too long as they were a bit dry, but it was the first time I’d used an air fryer. Some time thie week I’ll be trying oven chips for the first time, hopefully they’ll come out better than the hit and miss results I get using the fan oven.
The air fryer lid is quite big, but fortunately it just about fits in the cupboard space we freed up for the unit.
Overall I’m very happy with the purchase and am looking forward to experimenting to find out what it can and can’t do well. It certainly should save a few pennies on the electricity bill as it cooks quicker than the oven and uses less than half the power even at full chat!
Very easy to use. Cleared a lot of my limited counter surface. Steamer, air fryer, pressure cooker and rice cooker all gone from my counter top. I finally have space for some new kitchen gadgets.
An incredible piece of equipment , originally bought for pressure cooker and maybe the air fry function ( although suspected this was a gimmick !)
The air fryer is fantastic but we also use it for slow cooking, baking , making yoghurt and the sous vide feature makes it worth the money alone – 24 hour sous vide short ribs browned in the air fryer are just amazing , tender enough to cut with a spoon and still rare ( or however you like it just adjust the sous vide temperature)
Easy to clean and does loads more than the preset 11 functions – although setting the time and temp can be a bit fiddly .
I like it so much we bought a second one !
I bought it few weeks ago and actually changed my days. I had the chance to save time and eating healthier food. Super recommended
Hardly used my oven since. There’s only 2 of us so it’s the right size too.
It’s a great piece of kit with many many functions. I particularly love the sauting function that my old slow cooker doesn’t have. It is very bulky and heavy though so make sure you have the space to store it.
Who needs a Cooker when u have one of these
I cannot use my oven at night as I have to use a voltage converter to use my oven.The voltage converter is heavy on the home electrical system at night.That’s why I bought it right away for for night time if I want to fry fries etc..
I used it once for cook normal food with a pressure cooker, of course, it sticks to container made of steel because there is no Teflon.I just use it for frying. I’m just happy to fry food it is enough for me..If the potato is frozen, it is enough to fry for 15 minutes, but sometimes it may not take even 15 minutes, so you have to open the lid and check.Every time you fry, you have to open the lid and check if it’s fried enough.
Very pleased with this product. Good value for money easy to use
I have owned instant pot before so am familiar with the performance of this. However the addition of the air fryer lid this is an even better product.
There are various functions with this pot and it is very versatile. I have used oven as food cooks very quickly in the air fryer. I used the Instant pot to cooknl various meals. Much better economically.
Happy with my new IP + crisp have already got an instant pot but wanted an air fryer.
Have tested it out and so far it grea
When you get it, you’ll probably stop using any other device for making food, except, maybe, an omelette (although, I haven’t tried to bake that one yet). So far I have only used pressure cooking, souse vide, and air fry functions, but I am truly impress with the results. And, oh yes, it is so easy to clean!
We use the lovely duo pot almost everyday! Like use the air fryer function which save energy than oven when you roast half a chicken.
Expensive but great. totally replaced out hob.
Very useful and versatile.
Does what promised by desription very well.
Drawbacks…. need to learn new way of cooking. Can’t just follow instructions on packaging when cooking rice for example as it cooks much quicker. Easy enough to look up instant pot recipes online though.
Not quite large enough for family of 6.
Would be good for 4 people I suspect.
So far so good.only used 3 functions so far but all worked really well. Very easy to clean and worth buying the larger capacity multi-cooker for family meals
What a fantastic product,
I cook almost exclusively in the instant-pot now, so much that I bought a second one in order to cook various things at the same time.
Everything from pressure cooked ‘boiled’ eggs, sous-vide steak, slow cooked venison haunch, risotto, full english breakfast – I haven’t had a failure yet.
Easy to use, easy to clean and everything about the instant pot ‘feels’ quality.
There is a lack of instruction in the box for some of the functions but there are plenty of youtube videos and written recipes out there to experiment with.
If you’re on the fence about buying one of these…. do it, it will change the way you cook.
