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.
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.”

MONTREAL — Quebec's main political party leaders spent Sunday rallying their supporters to head to the polling stations, as Quebecers got a first chance to vote for who will lead them after the Oct. 3 election. The leaders of the Coalition Avenir Québec, the Liberals, Québec solidaire and the Parti Québécois all visited polling stations on the first day of advance voting amid concerns over possible low voter turnout. The Coalition Avenir Québec's seemingly unshakable lead in the polls has led to
More than 200 people marched in downtown Toronto on Saturday in a renewed push for government action on gun violence in the wake of 302 shootings in the city so far this year. The founder of Zero Gun Violence Movement, Louis March, says more action is needed to reduce gun violence, which he says has continued unabated in the city for months. "Enough is enough," March told CBC Toronto. "The gun violence continues. It just continues and the impact is so significant, and the government is still tal
Three Indigenous women aspiring to become lawyers in Alberta are challenging the King's Oath, because they say swearing an oath to the monarchy is modern colonialism. Anita Cardinal, who is set to graduate law school next year, and Janice Makokis and Rachel Snow, who graduated from law school in 2010 and 2013 respectively, are unable to practise law, they say, until the mandatory oath one swears when called to the bar is amended, or an alternative oath is provided. "The oath is a trigger of inte
As The Handmaid's Tale star Amanda Brugel arrived at the inaugural Legacy Awards on Sunday night, she reflected on what the new awards ceremony — which highlights the achievements of Black Canadian talent — will mean to future generations. "I think I'm going to get emotional talking about it," she told CBC News on the black carpet. "To have space, to hold space for the amount of Black talent that we have here, for future generations, will tell them that they matter, that there is so much room fo
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Stores are selling winter clothes from last season in the middle of summer. Repair shops lack spare parts for appliances. There's a waiting list to buy a new car. Egypt, a country of more than 103 million people, is running low on foreign currency needed to buy essentials like grain and fuel. To keep U.S. dollars in the country, the government has tightened imports, meaning fewer new cars and summer dresses. For the nearly third of Egyptians living in poverty,
Ontario Provincial Police say one of their officers is in hospital after the driver of a pickup truck rammed a cruiser during a traffic stop and then fled. Just before 9 a.m. Sunday, the officer tried to pull over the suspected stolen pickup on the eastbound Highway 401 off-ramp near Lancaster, Ont., OPP said in a media release. According to police, the driver rammed the cruiser, causing it to roll into a culvert. The officer was airlifted to an Ottawa hospital with serious but non-life-threaten
PHOENIX (AP) — Long before he assembled one of the largest far-right anti-government militia groups in U.S. history, before his Oath Keepers stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Stewart Rhodes was a promising Yale Law School graduate. He secured a clerkship on the Arizona Supreme Court, in part thanks to his unusual life story: a stint as an Army paratrooper cut short by a training accident, followed by marriage, college and an Ivy League law degree. The clerkship was one more rung up from
ATLANTA (AP) — Outraged by false allegations of fraud against a Georgia elections employee in 2020, Amanda Rouser made a vow as she listened to the woman testify before Congress in June about the racist threats and harassment she faced. “I said that day to myself, ‘I’m going to go work in the polls, and I’m going to see what they’re going to do to me,’" Rouser, who like the targeted employee is Black, recalled after stopping by a recruiting station for poll workers at Atlanta City Hall on a rece
A man and a woman arrested a year ago for allegedly feeding coyotes in Vancouver's Stanley Park have been charged with four offences under the Wildlife Act and must abide by specific bail conditions as their case winds its way through provincial court. CBC News has learned that Kemthong Clasby and Terence Lee Clasby were charged on Oct. 8, 2021, under sections of the B.C. Wildlife Act related to leaving or placing attractants for dangerous wildlife. Despite trying to confirm charges over the pas
