This review is about the Duo Crisp model which combines an Air fryer and Pressure cooker

What the buyers thought

This is a amazing cooking aid, very easy to use, and very easy to clean, so far I have used the Air Fryer, Slow Cooker and Pressure Cooker, easy to use and great results, managed to buy it when on offer, would highly recommend, also saves on having the oven on, so I believe it to be more energy saving. Looks great and a solid build. Also downloaded the app, so have lots of receipe ideas, love using it.

Highly recommend, i have previously had a ninja, much prefer this one, doesn’t leave the food dry like the ninja. This has so many options. Cooks in such a short period of time. Haven’t used my cooker since getting it. Cooked chicken, pork chops, chips, sausage and bacon..

I have had air fryers in the past where you could fit in an entire Crosta & Mollica Pizza to the basket. the size of the inner compartment of this 5.7l 11 in 1 Instant Pot is laughable. as is the size of the dehydrating tray, which – no joke – is the size of a large saucer or small dinner plate. i mean, its absurd, if someone was to try and use that for dehydrating you would have to do 1 apple at a time! it was silly. the moment I took everything out my excitement turned into, hmmmm, i’ll end up never using this as it will be more faff than convenience.

Conclusion Recommendation and Rating

For the reason given in the customer’s feedback, the small size of the air fryer makes the 5.8Litre model impractical, the Duo is however well built and all the cooking functions are very good, so I would recommend the 8Litre version only.
