We all know that Instant Pots are multipurpose kitchen wonders. They can saute, slow cook, pressure cook, make yogurt, steam, sterilize and more. But the Instant Pot Duo Crisp XL is a real standout — a combination pressure cooker that also comes with an air fryer lid! That gives it 11 different functions that include roasting, baking, air frying and dehydrating. Best of all, it’s currently on sale for just $150; that's, 25 percent off.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

The Instant Pot Duo Crisp XL is essentially the larger 8-quart version of the Instant Pot Duo Crisp, which has a 6-quart capacity instead. That makes it ideal for feeding a large brood, or if you just like to whip up a big batch of stew, soup or sauce and freeze a bunch for later.

“Engineering perfection personified, this machine is incredible and does all it says it will do,” gushed one shopper, who said they would give it 10 stars if they could. “Automatically seals when the lid is installed for the pressure cooking function and the push-button steam release is a huge improvement from the older Instant Pots. Air fry lid is sturdy and heats up within two minutes for about any heat setting; easy to merely lift off to check what you're cooking then put back on, and it immediately starts where it left off.”

The Instant Pot Duo Crisp XL also has 11 customizable smart programs for pressure cooking ribs, soups, beans, rice, poultry, yogurt, desserts and more. The inner cooking pot has an anti-spin design that secures the pot for easy sauteing, too. Plus, it comes with a broil and dehydrator tray, air fryer basket and steam basket!

One shopper on Amazon declared, “I am NOT a good cook. But I have yet to put anything in this thing that didn’t come out absolutely amazing. Air fry some brussels sprouts and throw in a couple of slices of bacon a few minutes before they are done. Totino’s pizza rolls suck — until you put them in an air fryer. Soups/stews that normally take all day in a Crock-Pot are done in a few hours in the pressure cooker. Why make a batch of chocolate chip cookies when you can make a single cookie as big as you want in minutes — and it’s so darn warm and chewy?”

“I love this product!” raved an enthusiastic review. “I’m a newbie and have wanted an air fryer for years. When I saw this I immediately wanted it and did some research. I ordered it on Black Friday, and it arrived about 2–3 days later.... I used it that night. Made homemade mac and cheese and it took less than 30 minutes when it usually would take over an hour on the stove. I’ve made other dishes as well and it works perfectly and cooks very evenly. The best feature is the removable lids [...] It fits snug in the corner and I store the air fryer lid and base in a rack underneath.”
