This was the most amazing informative post on “All things” about the Vortex settings…Lana I am just floored at your concise outgoing professional yet inviting way you do everything…I don’t think I’ve ever like a channel more & I’m subscribed to hundreds and enjoy MANY…I didn’t even get my morning coffee once I saw the email telling me about what the settings mean and how they are all the same and your wisdom having figured that out…etc ! Thank you thank you thank you…this will be such a fear breaker for all who have the Vortex but haven’t ventured into… Read more »


It’s nice to hear how this has become a passion & it’s easy to tell you enjoy! Something very drawing in what you’re doing…it’s like being a Tour Director was my passion & I guess I was made for it…. 🙂 (‘course that was a time ago…ha ha)…Best !


This is so informative. I thought about as much but you confirmed it. Thanks

Thank you so much for cracking the code! You are amazing and I so enjoy watching you cook! Excited to try to make some little pastelitos for my family. Thank you for inspiring us and breaking everything down into simple steps. What are some of your upcoming recipes going to be? Can you share? I’m trying to be good and not eat as much gluten for medical reasons, can you share any of your fabulous recipes and tweak them to be GF? Especially desserts. Thanks for all your hard work, we sure do enjoy you!

Thanks for your post! I will print this out and post in in my kitchen on the wall with other Instant Pot cheat sheets I found on the IP Community!


Thanks, I also contacted customer services. Your explanation goes beyond what I got from them.

Thank you so much. That was very helpful.


Thank you for your wonderful explanation. Thanks also for making it printable, so I can have your advice at hand and can read it all again whenever I need to refer to it. Much appreciated!.


Do you have this information regarding the Omni?

At least with my new vortex plus 10 qt, broil does not prompt you to turn the food half way through. Excellent article – it would have been nice if they had actually published this information for those of us that do read the manuals!

I’ve seen all your great, very informative Vortex videos and still managed to learn something on this page too. lol I thought I had a new quirk with mine re the rotisserie starting by itself at times. You probably covered this in a video too, but it didn’t sink in until I read your explanation on this page. As always, many thanks for sharing your knowledge.


So glad you answered this question! It was really bothering me that nothing explained the differences and how to use each option. Thank you so much!


Can I use tray to bake onion rings instead of air fry with basket


Thank you


this is very helpful information. I knew the functions were the same as to fan speed and heating up but not about the defaults, much less the rotisserie … I bought a basket air fryer, then decided to get one with rotisserie … I have yet to use the latter. It's April 27, I got it for Christmas … totally intimidated!


This information was so helpful!!! I have shared the link with a FB group I am a member of (Instant Vortex Recipe Collection). You answered many of the questions often being asked! THANK YOU!!!


I receiced my Vortex Plus Air Fryer Oven yesterday and the book is kinda useless. Finding it hard to get true information
