Using the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid
The Instant Pot Pressure Cooker is a very popular kitchen appliance, but now, with the addition of the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid, you can expand its capabilities to include air frying. The air fryer lid will allow you to cook food quickly and crispily without having to heat up a separate appliance. Here’s everything you need to know about using the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid:
What is an Air Fryer?
An air fryer is essentially a miniature convection oven that circulates hot air around the food to cook it in a fraction of the time as a traditional convection oven. This method means that foods that would normally take hours to roast, bake, or grill, can cook in the air fryer in just a few minutes.
How Does the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid Work?
The Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid works by attaching to an existing Instant Pot Pressure Cooker pot. It uses heated air in combination with high pressure to rapidly fry food inside the cooking pot. The lid offers a crispier texture to your fried food without the excess oil traditionally used for deep frying.
How to Use the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid
Using the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid is easy:
- Step 1: Prepare your recipe as you would normally, using the pressure cooker.
- Step 2: Change the lids and swap in the air fryer lid. Make sure the valve of the air fryer lid is closed.
- Step 3: Select “air fryer” on the display screen and adjust the temperature settings as desired.
- Step 4: Place your ingredients in the pot. Make sure they are coated with oil to achieve a perfectly crisp and crunchy texture.
- Step 5: Set the timer for the desired cooking time. It’s recommended to start with a few minutes first and increase the duration as needed.
- Step 6: Once the cooking time is finished, release the air fryer lid as you would with the pressure cooker.
- Step 7: Serve and enjoy!
Tips for Using the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid
- Do not overcrowd the Instant Pot with too much food as it can affect the performance of the air fryer.
- Ensure that all food is cut into pieces that are of an even size, as this ensures that they cook evenly and consistently.
- Keep an eye on your food as it cooks as cooking times can vary.
- If you want a crispier finish, add a few extra minutes to the cooking time.
