Instant Pot 140-0021-01
The product was defective
I was so excited to buy this product. It had been on my "saved for later" list for a long time. I was especially excited because it was an 11 in one product. It was a bit bigger than I wanted, but it was the only one that was an 11 in one product. Before I arrived I had printed out at least 50 recip...

Cooking Time

Instant Pot 140-0021-01
Great appliance. Cook time recommendations need improvement
I've tried a few recipes from the instant pot app, and they've been pretty good. It's quicker and easier to cook most proteins. The only issue I have is that I don't think the cook times recommended online are always accurate. (And the cook time sheet that comes with doesn't give portions or specify...

PowerXL PAFXL-5qt
Surprisingly Amazed!
I have been really skeptical to try an airfryer as I have not heard anything good about them. I decided to try this product (7 qt), and I am truly amazed how easy this appliance is to use. I have only used it once using all frozen foods (onion rings, popcorn chicken, fish strips and mushrooms). It t...

Health Benefits

Instant Pot 140-0021-01
great purchase
My husband talked me into buying the Instant Pot and I'm glad he did. He needs to be on a special diet because of health issues and this allows me to cook meals without the added fat of frying . It is also faster and much healthier and the food tastes more like real food. The pressure cooker and ste...

Nonstick Surface

Instant Pot 140-0021-01
Don't waste your money.
Bona fides: I have been cooking for over 50 years. I got my first pressure cooker in 1974. That's a long enough time to allow the development of strong opinions. I had an Instant Pot and loved it. My opinion of ihe Instant Pot Duo Crisp is that it's a piece of junk which has no place in a serious ki...

Worked great, but "non stick" pan is terrible
Got this air fryer early 2020 and didn't use it until this September. It replace a previous smaller fryer that had broken down after about two years of use. The 5 quarts makes for air frying larger quantities and whole chicken much easier. We were careful to clean the air fryer immediately after coo...
