Aldi Pressure Cooker Air Fryer Combo
Aldi has brought out Ambiano Instant Pot dupes before but this is the first Ambiano Pressure Cooker and Air Fryer Combo that I have seen. This looks to be a similar product to the Instant Pot Duo Crisp. This pressure cooker includes a separate lid that adds the air frying function, perfect to air fry your Red Bag (Kirkwood) Chicken Breast Fillet. Aldi shows that is has multiple preset functions but the website doesn’t list what specific functions it has.
Once it is in stores and we can get a look at the packaging we should know more specifics. Right now we know it will sell for $99.99 and be available August 8th, 2022. We also know it has a 6.5 quart (6.15L) capacity and the accessories should stack together and store neatly which is a big bonus in my book.
Check out the Aldi Finds Aisle to check the box for more details. I will try to update this post if I find some more useful information. Thay will also have a Compact Air Fryer available the same week if you are looking for just the air frying function.

Is It A Good Deal?
Aldi’s Ambiano Pressure Cookers have been well received in the past and I haven’t seen any major complaints about quality or durability. At almost one hundred dollars it is one of the more expensive kitchen appliances that Aldi sells. But if we compare it to some of the other options out there the price seems reasonable. It is less than the similarly sized Instant Pot Duo Crisp (6 qt) and similar in price to a refurbished Ninja OP301 (6.5 qt).
Instant Pot and Ninja are probably two of the more popular brands that have the combo of pressure cooker and air fryer in one appliance. For me the biggest advantage to having the combo unit is saving space by not having two very bulky appliances tucked away. Part of that advantage comes in having the features you want in both the air fryer and pressure cooker. Since we don’t know the included options on the Ambiano version we won’t really know if it is a good deal by comparing to the Instant Pot or Ninja combo cookers.
If there are specific features you are looking for be sure to check the Ambiano box before buying to confirm it has what you need. For example the Instant Pot Duo Crisp has a dehydrate feature and a yogurt maker feature. Both of those aren’t super common features but could save you from getting another fairly large appliance that just does one thing.
Ambiano Pressure Cooker Air Fryer Reviews
Bought this air fryer/crock pot/ pressure cooker at Aldi’s for 100.00 doesn’t work . It reads out PO£ on the screen. I use it twice and now it doesn’t work.
Works Well For a Combo Unit!
It works well for everything I have cooked so far. I made a pot of Pinto beans and then cooked the cornbread in the air fryer. Works great. I too saw the Recipe book say to set the Egg Program button to Normal but that is for another make of Pressure cooker. I get it you are adding the same recipe book to several units to save money but that is miss leading in ways to think you can do it whit the unit you bought. Other than that works great and saves space for sure.
I purchased this appliance a couple of months ago and have a few things I like but a whole lot I don’t. It does a pretty good job on fries and the pressure cooker did a great job making perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs. Unfortunately I can’t recommend it for anyone. I can’t count the number of times I have burned myself trying to remove the basket and the rack due to poor design. The pot is quite deep leaving the basket and rack recessed with no way to avoid contact with the hot pot. Even using pot holders it’s difficult to grab and balance these accessories. Both accessories have a loose fit inside the pot the rack being the worst. Setting the rack closest to the bottom cooks the food but doesn’t brown it. Invert the rack to face the top presents new problems. Placing food here will brown the food but it’s top heavy with very little cooking surface fitting one chicken breast at a time. When flipping food over; the rack will tip over dumping food to one side. Then there’s the battle to upright the rack and retrieve the food to flip it over usually resulting in getting burned. The other annoying thing is the little recipe booklet listing features like a sautee, dessert, and egg settings which don’t exist on the appliance. Overall I’m very disappointed with this product and will be contacting their customer support line to file a complaint. Avoid this device at any cost.
Not quite right
Does not have saute functionality. If they made something like a ring around the top. That would turn on bottom burner that would be great. I wouldn’t have brought if I new it didn’t have that function. Other wise works great .
Seem to work well.
I only had it for 1 day so I will update in 30day.
