Mealthy Crisplid Unboxing Video. Read all about the new Mealthy Crisplid that will turn your Instant Pot Pressure Cooker into an Air Fryer.
Mealthy Crisplid Unboxing
I have a Mealthy Crisplid! Drumroll please…..After waiting for the Mealthy Crisplid to arrive in Europe, we received delivery of our Mealthy Crisplid and this is our Mealthy Crisplid Unboxing Video.
What Is A Mealthy Crisplid?
But first I am sure you are wondering what a Mealthy Crisplid is and why you NEED ONE?
Well a Mealthy Crisplid is an alternative lid for the top of your Instant Pot, or other electric pressure cookers. Once the lid is placed on the top of the Instant Pot and the Mealthy Crisplid is plugged in, it will turn your current Instant Pot into an Air Fryer.
If you only ever wanted an air fryer to crisp things, then having a Mealthy Crisplid is a fantastic plan B and a great start to air frying.
Because of the way the crisp lid cooks it is perfect for melting cheese, crisping chicken wings or baked potatoes and other things you feel the Instant Pot fails at.
Why Not Just Buy An Air Fryer?
Some people only want an air fryer for basic things and use the Instant Pot the rest of the time. It saves on counter space and is perfect for if you just want an Instant Pot accessory that will make your pressure cooked food crispy.
Through experimenting so far, I have also found that the Mealthy Crisplid also makes amazing toast!
What Comes With The Mealthy Crisplid?
When you open your Mealthy Crisplid box you will find the following in the box:
- Mealthy Crisplid
- Long Leg Trivet
- Air Fryer Basket
- Crisplid Tongs
- Silicone Heat Resistant Mat
- Mealthy Crisplid Mini Recipe Book
I don’t really feel like the tongs are essential to your Mealthy Crisplid box as I seem to get them with every gadget I buy. But beyond the actual Mealthy Crisplid I love the Silicone Heat Resistant Mat the most. The Mealthy Crisplid gets incredibly hot and you don’t want to burn your kitchen worktop.
And OMG in Europe it is very difficult to get a long leg trivet, so I am so thankful about this.
How Does The Mealthy Crisplid Work?
To use your Mealthy Crisplid is so EASY.
You place your long leg trivet inside of your Instant Pot inner pot. Then you place your air fryer basket on top of this. Add your food that you would like the Mealthy to crisp and then place the Mealthy Crisplid on top.
You then use the settings on the Mealthy Crisplid and its on and that is it!
I advise experimenting with your favourite foods until you get it right. The first thing we cooked was our air fryer fries and they were awful. But we made our air fryer frozen chicken wings and they were AMAZING.
But like any new kitchen gadget the Mealthy Crisplid is all about trial and error.
Will The Crisplid Replace My Air Fryer?
BUT the Mealthy Crisplid is great for a quick crisp up, or cheese melt on food that we are already cooking in our Instant Pot.
If you use the Crisplid all the time as an air fryer too, then you are limiting your time that you have with your Instant Pot. As an avid Instant Pot and Air Fryer user I often find I use both during meal times and couldn’t imagine turning them into one.
You should consider the Mealthy Crisplid as a premium Instant Pot Accessory and if you love your Instant Pot but wish it could make the skin of your chicken crispy, then the Mealthy Crisplid is PERFECT for you!
Mealthy Crisplid Advantages
- Perfect for those that cook a lot of chicken in their instant pot and wish they could have perfect crispy skin.
- Toast lovers! It makes better toast than the regular air fryers do thanks to its high temperature.
- The Crisplid doesn’t take up a lot of room and is perfect for limited kitchen space.
- Next time you see an Instant Pot recipe that asks you to transfer your food to the grill to crisp up, you can just change Instant Pot lids!
Mealthy Crisplid Disadvantages
- It is a crisper not an air fryer, so you might be disappointed when you follow some air fryer recipes with it.
- The size is much smaller than an air fryer, so if you are expecting the same size as a Philips XL you will be disappointed.
- You can only use stainless steel inner pots. Making it useless for Brits that use the Pressure King Pro.
- Because it’s not a classic air fryer you will struggle with air fryer recipes that you find elsewhere.
Is The Mealthy Crisplid Worth Buying?
This depends on how much use you are going to get from it. It is of course one of the more expensive Instant Pot Accessories and if you don’t plan to use it a lot then maybe it is not for you.
Just think about the Instant Pot food you cook and which of it would benefit from being crispy or melty.
Then you have your answer!
