The Air Fryer Or Instant Pot, Which Is The Superior Kitchen Buddy?

The one-pot, the instant pot, the microwave oven, the oven, the range, the toaster, the deep dryer, and the list goes on. There really is almost no end to the kitchen gadgets available today. Combine this with the ever-growing technology available in today’s world, and it is easy to see how one could go bankrupt getting swept up buying these gadgets, trying to make life easier and healthier. All that being said, there are really two gadgets that stand out on this list amongst the rest. That would have to be the air fryer and the instant pot. If you had to choose only one, which should you opt for and why?

The Instant Pot

You can put in your research, speak to professional cooks, and read reviews about the instant pot, and you’ll find one thing that is a constant. People from all around are going to boast on the device for being able to perform a multitude of functions. However, the real truth of the matter is that it only has one primary function. And, that primary function is pressure cooking. This is not to say that it is a bad function, but it is certainly a far cry from a multitude of functions. Does this make the instant pot bad? Of course not, as the instant pot can be utilized in a variety of ways. You can use it to pressure cook, cook rice, slow cook, make yogurt, saute and brown, and warm. So, you do get a multitude of benefits.

Items that people oftentimes make with the instant pot are roasts, whole chickens, ribs, pasta dishes, vegetables, seafood, soups, and desserts like cakes, cheesecakes, and Brulee.) These pots also come available in 3 distinctive options. This would be the 3-quart, 6-quart, and the 8-quart.

Why Choose Just One?

Why just settle on the air fryer or the instant pot when you can have both? No, this doesn’t mean that you have to purchase two separate devices either. Thanks to the technology available today at Corrie Cooks, there is now an air fryer lid that will fit right over your instant pot. This lid magically transforms your current instant pot into an air fryer, giving it the capabilities of a traditional air fryer, while still retaining the functions of an instant pot. Just make sure that you get an appropriate sized lid for your make, size, and model.

The Air Fryer

An air fryer is a completely different beast than the instant pot. In fact, it is like a little miniature oven, giving you access to a heating element that heats and a fan that circulates air around your delectables. This gives you the added benefit of providing a crisp outer texture to your food. Something that’ll come in more than handy when you are cooking items like egg rolls, chicken fingers, meatballs, and fries. The air fryer is much more basic in terms of usability, as it works by adjusting the time and temperature. With the instant pot, you’ll have to adjust settings based on the type of food that is being prepared. The air fryer gives you the benefit of selecting a desired temperature along with the desired time. Doesn’t get much simpler than that.
