Any food that you can normally cook by deep-frying, shallow frying or roasting, can be done in the Instant Pot air fyer. Think chicken wings, chicken nuggets or tenders, fries, bacon, crispy potatoes and Brussels sprouts, salmon, shrimp, fried pickles, apple fritters, ribs.
Similarly one may ask, can the instant pot duo crisp and air fryer make rice?
If you are using an Instant Pot Duo Crisp, Ninja Foodi, Mealthy Crisp Lid, or Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid, your rice will come out more like true “fried” rice than if you stick to a regular Instant Pot without that bonus air fryer finish that you can get from the other products.
Also to know is, how do I use Instant Pot for air frying?
Only use the original stainless steel inner pot (do not use a ceramic–coated inner pot) when using the air fryer lid. Don’t overfill the air fryer basket and don’t cook oversized foods. Only place the air fryer lid on the enclosed protective pad, when hot. Do not place directly on the countertop.
What can I put in my air fryer?
You can make practically anything that you would fry in an air fryer. It’s great at heating frozen foods, but it’s also fantastic for from-scratch foods, like chicken wings, potato chips, donuts, and extra-crisp cookies!
If you are looking for a healthier alternative for frying foods, an air fryer is a way to go. Whereas, if you want nutritional home-cooked meals, then a pressure cooker is the better option. Both appliances provide effective ways of cooking your meals. You can combine both instead of choosing one.
