Between all the instant pots, mini-waffle makers, coffee bars, and KitchenAid mixers on the market today, we can hardy keep up with all the genius kitchen devices designed to make our lives easier — let alone find the counter space for them! But one innovative company has found a way to save you room on at least one appliance, however, with a product that can transform a gadget you likely already own — a pressure cooker or instant pot — into an air fryer just. like. that.
Say hello to the Mealthy CrispLid ($59.95, Amazon)— a handy little heating device that will sit on top of any 6 or 8-quart pressure cooker.
How Does the Mealthy CrispLid work?
Once you’ve cooked your meal in your pressure cooker, you can simply plug your Mealthy CrispLid in and select your desired time and temperature to boil, crisp, and air fry your meal up to 500 degrees.
Made from transparent, tempered glass, this mini air fryer that doubles as a lid will easily allow you to keep an eye on your food as it cooks. It comes with a bevy of dishwasher-safe accessories, including a small frying basket, silicone tongs, a silicone pot holder, a trivet (aka an object that goes between a serving dish and your table to protect it from heat damage), and a recipe booklet. Better yet, it comes with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty should any issues arise.
Reviewers are plenty pleased with this contraption so far, with 80 percent of buyers giving it a five-star rating on Amazon. “I couldn’t justify bringing another appliance into my 800 [square-foot] apartment,” one happy customer wrote. “The CrispLid fits the bill and more! SO easy to store, use, and clean, I’ve used it on a number of vegetables & it threads the needle between healthy and indulgent ... It fits perfectly on my 6-quart instant pot.”
Gushed another: “I love how their air fryer is now apart of the pressure cooker and they both work together makes for seamless dinner recipe and process.”
Hey, anything that makes getting dinner on the table easier and saves us space? Is worth a shot to us!
