Instant pot is a far more useful tool than an airfryer. We've been "camping" at home in a temp kitchen set up in the garage for the last 6 months. The airfyrer is a convection oven only. Now that we're moved back in to a real kitchen the air fryer won't make it out of the garage, but the IP made it to a closet in the kitchen.

I have a gas oven and many RV's have convection ovens already built in. So, the air fryer doesn't go on the road with me, but I use it at home some. Instapot or even an old school crock pot is more useful in the RV IMO. I like leaving a soup or something slow cooking while I'm outside when I have a site with power. I find the Weber Q1200 to be very versatile, you can do much more than just grill with it. I like to dry camp so propane heated devices get the most use.

obiwancanoli,

If I had to choose, I'd pick the Instant Pot.

You can now get pressure cooker/air fryer combo units. You can also get a retro fit lid for Instant Pot that converts it to an air fryer.

Like others, when I smoke meats I generally smoke a lot, vacuum seal and pop into the micro wave for almost instant long smoked meals.
I do baby back ribs, beef ribs, brisket, corned beef, country ribs, and a lot more. Even air fry chicken wings, seal & freeze.
Ain't nothing better than after a long day of driving & setting up to pop a bag into the old microwave and having brisket like it just came off the smoker.

Glad you mentioned vacuum sealing. We bought a food saver to vacuum seal meats on sale. We started using it for other items for our trips. The removal of excess air makes more room in the freezer. We initially bought a less expensive vacuum sealer but after the third session it stopped working. We bought Food Saver to replace it and it’s still going strong after 11 years.

Im in the opposite catagory. I use the insta pot, but mostly as a crock pot. So i really dont use it to its abillity. The air fryer, because i have a 9 yo, is used all the time. Toast, fries ( freshly done or frozen) and any frozen kid thing in between can be done in the air fryer. A crock pot is nice to have also.

So , i would definitely get like thw air fryer / insta pot combo that they listed above. Crock pot and insta pot all in one.

Are the Insta-Pot/Air Fryer combo's reliable, effective, compact? Seems like the best of both worlds, as I don't want to clutter up an already compromised space... I already have a MW/Convection combo, but haven't used it yet... maybe I should pay closer attention...

Don't forget SPAM; it's shelf stable so it takes up no freezer or fridge space. It comes in low sodium/low-fat versions called SPAM-Lite. This is better than your Grandaddy's SPAM.

It's good fried up in a pan for an easy OTR meal. Plenty of recipes for it too.

We love our InstantPot so much we bought one of the heated Instantpot blenders as well to replace our old blender. Instant pot Blender
