Vortex Plus vs Omni/Omni Plus:Comparison Buyers Guide

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

As I am writing this, Thanksgiving is just around the corner and to all those Potheads (as in Instant Pot fans, not the other kind) out there, that means one thing…..BLACK FRIDAY and CYBER MONDAY SALES! And if you are like me, before I buy even the most simple of gadgets, I spend hours trying to do research and read reviews trying to figure out what brand and what model is best. However, there isn’t much information out there on the either the Vortex Plus or the Omni and Omni Plus in order to compare and make an educated decision. So, since I have both, I decided to make my own guide based on the functions and aspects I like in each, what things I wish they made better, and what points I would take into consideration if I had to choose just one.

So here is my video that compares the Instant Vortex Plus and the Instant Omni/Omni Plus, and hopefully will help you decide which is best for you and your cooking needs!

I was wondering if the Omni or Omni Plus run true to temperatures. I had the Cuisinart toaster oven/ air fryer but had to return it because it ran super hot and even when I adjusted temperatures almost everything I made in it burned. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you!

Nancy

Thank you! Is it true that with the Omni Plus you can’t bake without using convection? That seems strange to me. Does that mean that anything I cook/bake I would need to adjust my cooking temp and time?

I just tested this in my new Omni Plus. It is running 10 degrees hotter than the set temp but the temo is maintained evenly. I will simply need to reduce the set temp by 10 degrees. I used to have the cuisinart top of the line oven. It was great for a year then began burning everything and finally threw a code and stopped working.

Hi! I had decided on getting the Omni over the plus. Didn’t feel the need for presets. Also figured it’s more simple maybe less to go wrong mechanically. However I found the Omni Plus at Kohls for $165 & the Omni at Walmart for $159. They’re basically the same price. What are your thoughts? Which would you go with? Also the Omni Plus from Kohls would be shipped. This time of year probably not handled with a lot of care. Walmart would be store pick up. Sorry, I know I’m over thinking this. Appreciate any input, thank you! Also, thank… Read more »

Can you put foil on the grease tray to keep it clean on the Omni Plus?

Hi Lana! i really Loved this comparison guide..I have a small family. It’s just husband and myself! We are looking to get rid of the toaster and step into an all in one type Toaster Oven. I also plan on using the Air Fryer a lot too. We live in NYC. We are lucky to have more counter space than most but not an extravagant amount. I thought about getting the instant pot fryer lid for my Duo Plus 60..but I would still need a toaster oven. One thing not mentioned in your guide is if you can cook a… Read more »

I am worried that the Vortex will be too small? Anyone found couldn’t do what they wanted because of the size? But it does look like it won’t take up a lot of counter space and has a nice look to it

Hi, we are family of 4 plus my parents visit us quite often. I am looking in to getting a toaster oven with airfryer. Space is not an issue for us. I am debating between Omni plus and Cusineart digital convention oven airfryer.

I love watching your videos and every time I look at it I get so tempted to get Omni plus. But I need to do fair comparisons. Can you please suggest your opinion?

Thanks,
Anokhee
