Last year for Christmas, I received an Instant Pot Duo Crisp Pressure Cooker 11 in 1 with Air Fryer, 8 Qt (amazon link). It has been one of my most used Christmas gifts ever. This fall I have been dehydrating pears and apples using the dehydrating function and it is such an easy and delicious way to preserve fresh fruit.
I started out dehydrating pears when a friend gave us a bushel of pears, but have now dehydrated apples too. I dehydrate apples the exact same way as pears which you can see in the video below.
2 to 3 Apples or Pears
Peel fruit, core and slice thin. Place in the Instant Pot Duo Crisp Pressure Cooker 11 in 1 with Air Fryer, 8 Qt (amazon link). Use the dehydrate function for 7 hours at 135 degrees F.
Can you use perforated parchment circles for the air fryer when dehydrating fruit?
This topic came up in the comments on my youtube video so I ordered some perforated parchment circles to try and here is my experience.
I finally bought some air fryer perforated parchment circles. I did not measure the diameter of my Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer before ordering and ordered these Zulay parchment circles (amazon link) in 9 inch circles. They did come in a handy pouch with a basting brush. They were bigger than my machine, but I just let them curl up the sides a little and they are awesome for ease of use and having a non-stick surface. I have since used the parchment circles when dehydrating fruit and they make clean-up so easy.
I just measured the actual diameter of my air fryer basket and it is 8 inches so next time I will order something like these parchment circles (amazon link) in the 8 inch size.
