Instant Vortex Plus 6 Quart Air Fryer Review

Instant Vortex Plus 6 Quart Air Fryer is equipped with 1700 watt power supply and can cook in temperatures ranging from 95°F to 400°F (35°C to 205°C). It’s currently among the best selling air fryers but is it among the best?

Cooking with Instant Vortex Plus 6 Quart Air Fryer

Instant Vortex Plus 6 quart air fryer performs exceptionally well. It cooks well and evenly (both vertically and horizontally which is often not the case for many air fryers), doesn’t heat up your whole kitchen, doesn’t get hot itself (as some of the other air fryers) and is rather quiet too. It does preheat automatically but it does that fast too (within few minutes).

Instant Vortex Plus 6 quart air fryer has 6 cooking modes: air fry, roast, broil, bake, reheat and dehydrate. It crisps foods like french fries, tater tots, mozarella stticks, sweet potatoes fries and others nicely. Chicken wings have crispy skin yet remain tender and juicy on inside (as does other types of meat).

With all of this said the results are obviously delicious. This is certainly among the best cooking air fryers on the market and it’s easy to use too!

Control panel

Instant Vortex Plus 6 quart air fryer is equipped with display screen, control dial and touch-sensitive buttons.

Control panel is seemingly divide into 3 parts which makes it intuitive. The upper part features display screen, the middle part – 6 smart program buttons and bottom part – control dial and 4 buttons: “Temperature/Time”, ”Cancel”, “Light” and “Start”.


Instant Vortex Plus 6 quart air fryer has a window and internal light which is something most air fryers don’t. This allows you to see food without opening the basket. This is important because you can see how well your food is cooked without having to let warm air out.

It also has various safety features including auto shut-off safety and overheat protection.


Cooking basket has non-stick coating and dishwasher safe which makes it very easy to clean. Anything that sticks to it comes off easily.

Possible issues

Few consumers have reported their Instant Vortex Plus 6 quart air fryer emitting burnt smell when cooking. In most cases this is completely normal with a very simple explanation. As far as I know all air fryers have protective substance on heating elements to protect them during storage and shipping. This protective substance is detroyed by heat and can sometimes initially produce burnt smell until it’s fully eliminated.

If you notice this smell you have to allow the protective substance to burn off completely. What some people do is cook nothing for 15-20 minutes. What we would recommend is to cook sliced pieces of lemon for 15 minutes. You can repeat it if once is not enough.


Instant Vortex Plus 6 quart air fryer is certainly among the best. It cooks well, is easy to use and has features than many of the competitors don’t have.
