Q: Do I remove small rubbers from the tray before use it?

submitted by Tash - 4 years ago
  • A: I would not remove them. Those rubber guards are made of silicone, which can withstand very high temperatures. I have a Ninja air fryer and it also has those rubber things attached to the cooking tray. Those guards help to elevate the cooking tray to allow air to circulate beneath the food. It's interesting that those rubber guards are not illustrated in the user manual for the Instant Pot, but are shown in their promotional videos. Since mine were already installed, I left the rubber things on the tray without any problem.

    submitted byairbud - 4 years ago
  • A: **Warning** Don't remove silicone tray feet. It is a special design and they are needed to function properly.

    submitted byUsdrag - 3 years ago
  • A: Great question, Tash. We do not recommend removing the silicone parts from the cooking tray. These pieces are used to keep the tray in place whilst in the basket, in addition to allowing for proper air circulation. We hope this helps!

I thought I could beat it. I read all the reviews in preparation and followed instructions. The smell upon proper use was horrifying. My daughter was crying even with the windows and doors open and the fans and ac running. I made sure to prep as per instructions and pulled out the four poorly designed rubber shipping protectors that seemed to be the source of complaints (they look like part of the grill tray but are apparently just for shipping protection) and still the smell was overwhelming. Cleaned and ran two cooking cycles as per the instructions. Put in food, tried a bite. It was inedible but wouldn’t have let her eat it anyway after smelling the tray after removing the food. Chemicals. What is instant pot thinking?
1 reply from Instant Brands Support team - 10 days ago
Thanks for reaching out. It's normal to get a smell the first couple of uses with a new unit. This smell should go away after running a few times and cleaning thoroughly. Please contact our Customer Care team if it persists or if you have any concerns. Please note, the tray bumpers are made of food grade silicone and are meant to remain on the tray when it is in use.

The InstantVortex Plus is the best air fryer money can buy. With the sleek and small design you can place and store anywhere. Also, with the many options you can cook anything you imagine. The air fryer is also cheaper than most others on the market.

I been on the look out for a more compact air fryer that I can keep on my counter and won’t take too much storage space. I’ve read the reviews on this one and saw many complaints of plastic smell but I took the chance.. after reading and the directions and pamphlets contained in the box there are small plastic holders on the tray that are required to be removed before used which was some of what reviews here possibly missed but all in all this air fryer met my expectations and needs

Em - 2 months ago
We have loved this air fryer and it’s worked great but coming up on 1.5 years using it as our primary cooking appliance and the Teflon has chipped so many places inside. We have used to correctly and it appears to just chip with wear and time? It’s not safe anymore to cook in. So disappointing, especially as we reheat our kids food in this. I wish it lasted longer

The second you turn this air fryer on there is an appalling plastic smell that seeps throughout your whole house AND THE FOOD. I have never experienced this in my whole life. We have had air fryers before. My house smelt like burnt plastic for 2 days with all the windows open. It was awful. We read all the directions, did the “test cook”, etc. read the other reviews below me from people experiencing the same thing…. this is NOT NORMAL AND NOT OK. The smell was so awful everyone felt nauseous. You could smell it when you were in the backyard. Returning. Cannot believe something like this is allowed to be sold. RUN AWAY.

My husband picked this up at our local Target knowing how much I love using my Instant Pots (3&6 qt.) I told him hang on to the box and receipt just incase. Well, we have used it for chicken breasts, pork tenderloin, steak burgers and turkey burgers. No complaints--so tender, moist and delicious. Oh, clean up is a breeze compared to two other air fryers I had. Instructions say to let the unit cool off and believe me I did not have to soak it at all. I use a soft wash cloth and that is it.

My cosori went out after a year of use and I decided to try a different brand. So far this model cooks twice as fast and is pretty quiet. At first I didn't like how hard it is to pull the drawer open but the other pros outweigh that minor issue. I love the turn dial for the time and temperature,much easier than buttons. The large basket size is a plus since we have a large family . For us the chemical smell went away after a few uses.

I purchased this air fryer because this brand is usually pretty good and their quality is consistent. However, this air fryer should be recalled because I bought this air fryer 02/09/23 & here we are 03/21/23 & the air fryer still gives an extremely strong plastic smell that makes the taste food exactly how it smells. I tried everything, running it at max temp for 20+ minutes (as instructed in the manual) several times, washing it, triple checked to make sure nothing flammable was left inside, etc. You name it, I tried it. Yet every time I made something the Instant Vortex would reek terribly and whatever I was cooking in it would come out tasting just like the burning plastic smell the air fryer was giving off. At this point, I lost all hope in the Instant Vortex, & I feel like it’s a fire waiting to happen. DO NOT BUY!
