While instant casseroles were a craze a few years ago (and remain very popular today), deep fryers are the latest must-have for small kitchens. If you haven’t invested in any of them in some way yet, you can do it now for less. Amazon has a new six liter sale Instant Pot Duo Crisp a multicooker and deep fat fryer that brings the price down to $ 98, more than $ 50 below its normal price. While we saw this model drop to $ 79 on Black Friday last year, this discount is the best we’ve seen from Amazon in an entire year.
Unlike standard instant pots, this model comes with an easy-to-close lid and a removable air fry lid, the latter of which can be used for crispy chicken wings, vegetables, potatoes and more. The casserole itself has 11 built-in cooking programs including Searing, Pressure Cooking, Steaming, Roasting, Roasting, and Dehydration. The kit includes most of the items you will need to try all of these cooking modes, such as the roasting and dehydration pan, the multi-level air grill, and more. There is only a six-cylinder model on sale (model eight liters will cost you $ 200), but this is perhaps the best size for most people as it can fit up to eight people.
Admittedly, Duo Crisp is more “advanced” Instant Pot than most others. If you are new to the multicooker, we recommend $ 69 Duo Instant Pot as it costs less than Duo Crisp and offers a fairly simple operation with seven cooking modes. But for those who know that a slow cooker will greatly simplify food preparation, and for whom experimenting with air frying sounds fun, Duo Crisp is a good investment. Regardless of which model you buy, read our Instant Pot guide to learn how to get the most out of your new gadget.
