What is Mealthy CrispLid? 

The Mealthy CrispLid is a pressure cooker attachment that converts your pressure cooker such as Mealthy or Instant Pot into an air fryer. This nifty attachment fits any 6 qt to 8 qt pressure cooker with a steel pot. The CrispLid enables you to broil, crisp, air fry, and dehydrate your food!

What does it come with? 

The five main components of the Mealthy CrispLid include a 3 inch raised trivet, the air frying basket, tongs, a silicone trivet, and the CrispLid.

Let’s work our way from top to bottom. 

  • The Mealthy CrispLid attaches to the top of the pressure cooker air frying and radiating heat to the food in the basket.

  • Because the lid reaches temperatures as high as 500°F, the CrispLid comes with a silicone trivet to protect your counters. Instead of placing the top directly on your kitchen counter, simply place the lid on the silicone trivet. 

  • raised trivet inserts into the steel bowl of your pressure cooker. It lifts the air frying basket to allow frying of the food in the basket.

  • The lightweight, stainless steel mesh frying/broiling basket holds food during the frying process and cleans easily with soap and water or in the dishwasher. 

  • Finally, when you are ready to remove the food, basket, and raised trivet to use the provided tongs for safe and easy retrieval. 

  • It also includes a recipe book and a user manual (a must-read before you start using the device). 

How does CrispLid work?

The CrispLid’s unique design includes two rims, allowing it to fit in both a 6 qt and 8 qt pressure cooker. The heating element blasts dry heat on and around your food while it cooks. This allows the food to cook faster and crisp up over time.

Vents help the pressure cooker maintain an even level of heat throughout the cooking process. One of the best features of the CrispLid is the glass lid. This enables you to see your food as it cooks to ensure proper cooking and helps you keep an eye on it to prevent burning.
