If you’ve been making good use of your Instant Pot during the last couple of months, it might be time to treat yourself to another fun small kitchen appliance. The Instant Vortex, like the electric pressure cooker from the same company, does so much more than air fry. This 7-in-1 appliance is another way to change the way you cook.

Seven Functions in One Small Package

The Instant Vortex can give you all the flavor of deep-fried cooking without the unhealthy amount of oil or kitchen mess, but it also does so much more than air fry. The Vortex comes with 7 built-in smart programs including bake, roast, toast, broil, dehydrate, and rotisserie. So whether you’re air-frying up some chicken wings, baking chicken breast, or craving a rotisserie style chicken for you next family meal, this appliance has you covered.

Big Meals in No Time

Cooking big family style meals can take a lot of time, but the Instant Vortex works similarly to the Instant Pot in cutting down on cook time. With little to no preheating time, the Instant Vortex helps you whip up dinner in about half the time it would take in a conventional oven.

Why Customers Love It

Amazon customers love this air fryer version of the Instant Pot, giving it 4.3 out of 5 stars with more than 700 reviews. Customers liked that they could make multiple meals at once by using the two cooking trays. Several reviews mentioned how easy to clean this air fryer was compared to other models. Customers also loved being able to cook meat and vegetables in so many different ways with one appliance.

Q: I need to repair the mortar joints on my older brick home that was built in the late 1800s. I’ve seen some horrible workmanship where the mortar doesn’t match at all, and I want to avoid this. How does one match the original mortar? What would you do to make sure the finished repair is nearly invisible? Is this even a realistic goal, or should I just resign myself to ugly mortar joints that don’t match? —Rhonda S., Boston
