    Just bought the Vortex air fryer—-not sure I want to keep it. Your web site has so little on it that I am totally confused. I did not buy an Instant Pot pressure cooker and that seems to be all that is available.

    There is litterly no information on the Vortex. I’m still trying to make toast. I’m glad I kept the cuisinart!

    My Vortex plus 10 came with no recipes or times to cook anything how are you supposed to cook anyhing if you have to look on line to find recipes and then they are not the right one they are for the instant pot

    No information, recipes, or cooking guidelines. This has to be one of the biggest failures in planning, product launch and support that I have ever seen in a retail market.

    Should of bought Emeril Lagasse’s Air Fryer. It comes w/ a Recipe BOOK! I wish I could take it back, you can’t even supply a recipe BOOK, very cheap on your part. You think everyone has TIME to go Online to search for a recipe. We don’t, we want to open up a recipe book that you did not include. Very poor on your part. But you don’t care you got our purchase!

    Instant Pot says:

    Hi Mel Rego,

    We definitely care, thank you for the feedback. We will provide it to our product department.

    We have the recipes available on our free app, that is why we did not include a physical cookbook. The benefit to offering the recipes on an app, instead of a physical copy, is we are able to update our app with new recipes frequently.

    Have to agree, there is little or guidance on how to use the 6 quart vortex plus air fryer and all the recipes at the link are for the vortex plus oven which are two distinctly different appliances. Also it’s not easy to find recipes for the 6 qt air fryer on the recipe app or on the website links. Huge fail by instant appliances as it’s like selling a car without any owner manual. Hugely disappointing and still deciding whether or not to return the appliance after this experience.

    I do not have a pot or oven. It’s an instant vortex 6 qt. air fryer.
    Do you have helpful cooking hints for it?

  11. Jack
    Jack says:

    Got a Vortex for a gift. WTF are the recipes? I saw your lame app, and lame website. Not acceptable . The device isn’t like a typical air fryer, so I have to experiment with everything. Don’t bother. Not a minimal viable product.

    Loretta Riordan says:

    At our ages (72 and 70) we don’t like having to use our iPad or smartphone to find a recipe. We want a cookbook to work with. Those of us that have reached our golden years learned to cook using recipes that are written down by the previous generation or old cookbooks. Have some pity on us, include a cookbook

  13. Rick Johannes
    Rick Johannes says:

    I have to agree. My first air fryer and no instruction on how to cook anything. Instant pot dropped the ball.

  14. Kelly
    Kelly says:

    I bought the air fryer as a gift. There was no cookbook, which is fine, whatever. But your website and app have a total of 26 recipes and this comment is a full year later than the ones above. This is pathetic, truly.

  15. Gary
    Gary says:

    As virtually all note, InstaPot failure to not supply even a basic recipe book with each air fryer is an epic failure. What appears to be a hastily prepared “1,000” online recipes is a poorly done second failure. You have a chance to recover: prepare and print – or include on your website – a serious at least basic cookbook available free for each specific air fryer. InstaPot is going to damage a great reputation.

    I just bought a vortex plus that was used and has no warranty or recipe guide in it! Just bc I bought it on sale it shouldn’t have been a used one. Now I’m worried if there’s anything wrong with it and they were very rude to keep all the instructions in it, except for the rotisserie ones, so it was deliberately! The basket was also scratched up alittle on the top. It’s maddening!

    Bought the omni and the app has no mention of it at all. Terrible when on the box it advertises the app.

    Bought the omni and the app has no mention of it at all. Terrible when on the box it advertises the app. Also adding that the website wont let me post the first sentence because it says it is a duplicate post.

    We also bought the 10 QT Vortex Plus Air Fryer Oven. Was very surprised when opening to find there was not a recipe book, as this was our first with an air fryer.I must agree with the other comments that I feel it is bad business to produce a product and no recipe book. I feel that the
    manufacturer should make a printed book available for the asking.

    Marie Sutton says:

    Really ticked off no recipe book. A wee book would have been appreciated. Very cheap of INSTANT POT not to include simple every day recipes, sure would have inspired me to swing into action. Folks my age 70plus like the written recipe.

    L. Gano says:

    Agree with others. Was very excited to buy my Instant Pot today, but extremely disappointed to find it lacking a recipe book. On line has a few at your site, but not near enough. What a disappointment overall.

    A lot of thanks for your own efforts on this website. My niece enjoys engaging in investigations and it is easy to understand why. Most of us know all about the compelling manner you deliver both interesting and useful secrets by means of the web site and as well as foster participation from other individuals on that matter plus our favorite girl is now learning a lot of things. Take pleasure in the remaining portion of the new year. You are always performing a powerful job.

    Purchased an air fryer lid to go with my 6qt Duo Instant Pot. Absolutely no directions or explanations about anything. How do the various modes differ? How do I choose for a particular meal? How large is the capacity of the basket? Looking online gives few clear examples of recipes since there are SO MANY POPUPS!
    Waste of money.

  24. Heather
    Heather says:

    Bought Instant Zest and there’s very little information anywhere about how to use any of the features besides grains and rice. There’s a steam, but how much water should I use. It says you can cook eggs, but again – how? The recipes and app is overwhelmingly skewed to pressure cooker function, which is not part of Zest. This seems like a cool little appliance if I only know how to get the most out of it with some additional instructions…

  25. Hasani
    Hasani says:

    I agree with the many people who are asking for a recipe book and more instructions. The Instant Pot Duo with Air Fryer is quite frightening, especially with all the warnings in the small booklet that comes with it. I see why some people call it a “monster”. I am told what NOT to do, but it is not clear what To do. I would like to download the app, but the Apple store indicates it is not compatible with my computer – an expensive MacMini. I need to have an apple M1 chip, but don’t know if I can get one. Please find a way to provide what we are asking for.!

    Catherine says:

    Really disappointed! Not only did I not get the Cuisinart air fryer that I wanted for Christmas, I got the Vortex Plus. No recipes supplied with the fryer and the link you provide has very few recipes for the Vortex Plus. Where am I supposed to get them? Your app sucks and again there’s very few recipes for the Vortex Plus. Why is this? How can you sell a product and not supply some sort of recipes in the box? I don’t want to search the internet each time I want to make something! WTF instant pot brand?!

    Rick Loyer says:

    I bought the instant pot duo crip for my wifes birthday,not only was she stunned to get one,we both love it.We have done wings,ribs,meatloaf,chicken breasts,baked potato skins and we love it.The self sealing pressure cooking lid is awesome-no more playing with the vents or contact with hot steam during the initial quick release.There are recipes on the app but I find it simple to air fry with it,though i havent tried the sous vide yet.Likely to season and seal fish fillets this week to try it out.
    We now have 3 instant pots and can officially be labeled hoarders.Now if I could locate some affordable accessories that would cap it off.

    I agree with the above comments! I received an air fryer lid for Christmas, no recipe book or even clear general directions for someone who has never used an air fryer. VERY disappointed!!

  29. Rae
    Rae says:

    I completely agree with all the comments remarking about the absence of a cookbook. Any cooking appliance should include at LEAST a booklet of introductory recipes to try out.

    I shouldn’t have to install an app onto my cell phone requiring my giving permissions to every aspect of my cellular use and habits (not to mention contacts) to get recipes I should’ve *already gotten* when making the purchase in the first place…. EPIC fail.
