Instant Vortex Plus Review – Unique Features and Design
The Instant Vortex Plus air fryer is just one of the most popular kitchen appliances in the country today, touted as the America s #1 best selling small kitchen appliance. The makers of Instant Pot have therefore created an additional companion appliance for this popular pressure cooking appliance, the Instant Vortex electric air fryer. However, is the Instant Vortex Plus really as good as the competition?
In many ways the two appliances are similar. Both of them can be used to quickly and easily dehydrate foods, particularly when it comes to preparing a variety of Asian foods such as Thai or Japanese chicken sirloin. Because the Instant Vortex Plus is built much more efficiently than its predecessors, it is capable of achieving very low temperatures, often lower than we are able to achieve with our standard toaster ovens. It is also capable of achieving very precise temperatures, something that the competition really struggles with.
There are some distinct differences between the Instant Vortex Plus and the competition. For one, there are only three (3) main trays in this model, instead of the standard five that are typically included with most other models. Each tray has a handle on each side to assist in lifting it from the heating element. It also comes with a separate outlet that you can plug in your blender, juicer or food processor. This outlet also allows you to use either the high or low setting for baking.
As far as the Instant Vortex Plus’ juicer and blenders go, it comes standard with the three quart size. It’s also a standard feature in many toasters, including the Toaster Oven Plus. One unique feature that you will find is the fact that it has separate bowl for grinding versus using the trays for toasting. The Instant Vortex Plus has separate bowl for grinding versus using the trays for toasting.
The Instant Vortex Plus also has a unique cooking mode called the “Chunks” cooking option. With this cooking mode, it heats the inner pot until it is heated beyond the normal melting point of your processor or blender. It then empties the inner pot to prepare more chunky for frying. One thing you have to keep in mind about this cooking mode is that it can cause a bit of smoke to come out of your appliance, but it is easily cleaned. On the sides of the inner pot, you will find a metal plate with holes that allow the air to flow through. The unique design of this Instant Vortex Plus air fryer means that there is no real airflow going on inside the inner pot.
Another important feature you will find in this Instant Vortex Plus is the fact that it follows the same air circulation process used in conventional oven directions. Unlike conventional oven directions, you will not be heating the food above the appropriate temperature. Your food will be at the appropriate cooking temperature at all times. You do, however, have the option to set the exact temperatures that you desire through the electronic control panel. There is an adjustable thermostat and digital display as well, which allow you to always know what temperature you are cooking at all times.
The Instant Vortex Plus is also easy to clean. Unlike other dehydrators, you do not need to use additional equipment in order to clean out the inside of the Instant Vortex Plus. All you have to do is simply remove the non-stick tray and discard it. Follow the directions on the package to ensure that you place the tray back in the Instant Vortex Plus.
The final unique feature of the Instant Vortex Plus is that it offers a slow rotation setting that allows you to cook food in its own private, protected cooking time. This is an extremely useful feature. When your family is looking for something to make them happy, you should definitely consider trying out the Instant Vortex Plus. This unique air flow control keeps your Instant Vortex Plus from over-frying your foods. It works perfectly on a wide variety of foods, and it helps to ensure that you have a delicious meal, every single time!
