Although instant pots were insane a few years ago (they are still popular today), deep fryers are the latest small kitchen appliance that must be had. If you haven’t somehow invested in any yet, you could do so now for less. Amazon has a new six-square-foot sale Instant Pot Duo Crisp a multi stove and fryer that knocks down the price to $ 98, which is more than $ 50 from its usual price. While we’ve seen this model drop to $ 79 during Black Friday last year, this discount is the best we’ve seen Amazon offer it all year.
Unlike standard instant pots, this model comes with an easy-to-seal lid and a detachable air-frying lid, the latter of which can be used for crispy chicken wings, vegetables, french fries and more. The pot itself has 11 built-in cooking programs, including sautéing, pressure cooking, steaming, baking, baking and dehydration. The package includes most of the things you will need to try all these ways of cooking, such as a baking dish and dehydration, a multi-level frying rack and much more. Only a six-square-meter model is for sale ( eight quarts will refund you $ 200), but this is probably the best size for most people because it can accommodate enough food for up to eight people.
The Crisp duo is, admittedly, a more advanced Instant Pot than most. If you are new to the multi-stove space, we recommend it $ 69 Instant Pot Duo because it starts cheaper than Duo Crisp, and things are pretty simple with seven cooking modes. But for those who know how a multi-cooker will make meal preparation much easier and for whom experimenting with air frying sounds exciting, the Duo Crisp is a good investment.
