Instant Pot Bacon

We love crispy bacon, and we have two quick and easy ways of cooking bacon in the instant pot (specifically the instant pot duo crisp)!

Sauté

With the sauté mode on the instant pot, you can fry bacon and make it crispy. Switch on the sauté mode on low and cook the bacon until crispy - approximately 8 minutes. One big advantage of frying your bacon in the instant pot rather than the stovetop is that you avoid greasy spluttering from the pan.

Air fry

If you have the instant pot duo crisp OR if you simply have an air fryer, we recommend frying up some bacon in the air fryer. It’s such a quick hands-off method for frying up some bacon - you can simply switch it on and forget about it for 7 short minutes.
