    I’m so disappointed… I’ve bought this cooking tool especially for french fries to not have a hot kitchen in summer and it cannot do that. I need to use the oven !!!! OMG a so bad decision… 🙁

    I’m disappointed too. I received the instapot oven for Christmas. I can’t even find a recipe for french fries on your website. The only recipe is to use the oven!!!! You didn’t include a recipe book with the appliance and appear to have a bias toward the instapot and virtually nothing on the oven!!!! on your website. I’m so discouraged.
