OK, I know a lot of you have chosen to use the pot that seems to do it all, from pressure cooker, to slow cooking and even air fryer foods. The reviews I have read say you can fry without oil and saute with them as well as do almost everything. For those who have one, what is the story? I want to put one on my christmas list but want to be sure it will work for air frying?

For air frying you need convection and high heat. The Instant Pot does not do convection. It is a pressure cooker not an oven.

A couple of Ninja multicookers advertise that they can crisp foods. I know nothing about them , however. If users review them as being air fryers, I suppose they are.

Usually air fryers are either built in to convection ovens, or they are stand alone units.

Is there a YouTube video that demonstrates the Ninja Multicooker?

Thanks for the quick answer. I am very familiar with the air fryer: have been using one for years and love it. Yes, I have read about the Ninja multicookers. That is actually what I was thinking about when I posted. The ads claim they can do it all and many of the reviews on Amazon say the same. I am just a little leary as it makes no sense to me, how this would work. I hope someone will post that has had experience with the multi cookers. I either want one for Christmas or I want a larger air fryer.

I do not see an air fry option. Yes, I am happy as a lark with my air fryer and have one in back up just in case.

I think that is the one I am looking at. I am putting it on my Christmas list and if I get it, I will let everyone know how well I do or do not like it. If anyone else has any experience feel free to chime in.

i have recently bought both....and use them..

I use my air fryer 4-6 times per week not so much with the instapot.....in the air fryer I cooked thighs and beef ribs and steak....in the past week and it comes out very well


if someone already has a slow cooker id get them an air fryer.....its essentially a broiler with the element on top
but the clean up is easy!!

Minor pet peeve ... it's an Instant Pot, not an Insta Pot.

sorry, I would want to upset someone by using the incorrect word. I will be more careful next time.

Hey, if you want to refer to it by the wrong name, feel free. Just thought I would clarify.
