Exciting news! Instant Brands has just released their Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid, which turns many 6 quart Instant Pots into an air fryer!
The Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid seems to function very similar to the lid that comes with the Instant Pot DUO Crisp Air Fryer Pressure Cooker, except that you will have to plug this lid into a wall outlet.
If it shows out of stock, you can still order and it will ship once restocked.
Roast a whole chicken using the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid, or first pressure cook the chicken and then use the lid to make the skin perfectly crispy. My Instant Pot Pesto Chicken first cooks in the pressure cooker and then the air fryer lid will cause the cheese to brown and bubble. Imaging making and Instant Pot BBQ Pork Spare Ribs [Baby Back/St. Louis] in the pressure cooker and then caramelizing the barbecue sauce right in the pot with the air fryer lid? Perfectly succulent and delicious ribs in about 40 minutes!
Use the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid to make Air Fryer Rib Eye Steak with Blue Cheese Butter or Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings the same way you would using a regular stand alone air fryer like the Ultrean 8.5 Quart Air Fryer. The basket is very deep, so you can cook for your whole family.

The functions let you use the lid as an air fryer and also expand your Instant Pot Pressure Cooker’s capabilities. No need to remove a casserole from the Instant Pot and put it in the oven to brown the top!
The Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Lid fits nicely on all 6 quart pressure cookers. So, if you are making my fully loaded Instant Pot Macaroni and Cheese, first use the pressure cooker for the macaroni and then switch to the air frying lid to brown the Crispy Bacon Garlic Breadcrumb Topping right in your 6 quart Instant Pot.
My Instant Pot Poor Man’s Burnt Ends is a perfect example of how to cook very tough meat quickly and then caramelize the meat with the crisping lid.
