How do you get crunchy, crispy food with a golden finish (without oil or residual grease)? The answer to your guilt-free crunch is all thanks to air frying.

The makers of Instant Pot® have brought their smart technology to the air fryer category.  So if you have ever considered an air fryer or need an upgrade, you will find everything you need in the new 5.7L Instant® Vortex™ air fryer: superior quality, smart technology, larger capacity, and exceptional value for money.

So why are air fryers trending at the moment? South Africans love their fried food because it tastes delicious, but it’s not the healthiest way to prepare food for our families. While deep-fried food tends to be high in calories, air-fried foods are not only lower in calories; they also help us avoid trans fats and can protect our heart health too. Now that’s an Instant win!

The Vortex uses the latest EvenCrisp™ technology to replace hot oil with super-heated circulating air. This produces the same crunchy taste and texture that makes deep fried food so good. It also traps juices inside the crispy coating, without the added grease: it’s quicker, cleaner, healthier, and a whole lot easier. You will wonder how you ever lived without it!

Premium features you can expect from the Instant Vortex:

  • Extra large basket capacity (245mm x 240mm)
  • Best value for size
  • 4-in-1 appliances (air fry, bake, re-heat and roast)
  • Touchscreen controls which are adjustable by degree and minute
  • Instant Pot’s famous customisable smart program technology delivers consistent results every time – it even saves your settings and remembers the way you cook!

Retailing for R2 599, the Instant Vortex is available at Takealot, @home stores and Yuppiechef from 30 November 2020. To find out more visit
