Now that Instant Pot is virtually synonymous with pressure cooking for some people, the company behind it is turning to another kitchen trend: air fryers. The recently acquired Instant Brands has introduced the Instant Vortex Plus, a seven-in-one air fryer that promises the company's usual versatility for more cooking modes. On top of its namesake feature, it can also bake, broil, dehydrate, reheat, roast and rotate an included rotisserie spit. You might not need to change devices if you want to make chicken and french fries, and the 10-quart capacity should be enough for many meals.

The Vortex Plus is available now through Walmart for $119. That's considerably more expensive than some air fryers, as CNET pointed out. However, it could be a bargain if it saves you from buying additional kitchen gear or preserves valuable countertop space. And let's face it: if you're already part of the Instant Pot pack, this is probably a good complement.
