The generous 6L capacity makes the DualChef a great option when cooking for guests or the whole family. Make extra and freeze for convenient meals and even less time spent cooking. 

The DualChef is a rather large appliance that takes up quite a bit of counter space. But if you consider how many functions it offers, the space-saving in terms of fewer separate appliances needed and therefore storage saving is there. 

Cooking features: 

The DualChef functions as both a pressure cooker and an air fryer and includes 2 separate lids and functions for each use. 

  • Pressure cooker functions: beef, chicken, stew, fish, vegetables, sauté, slow cook, rice, risotto, canning, yoghurt and manual settings
  • Air fryer functions: french fry, roast, fish, shrimp, pizza, meat, bake, chicken, dehydrate and reheat


  • Easy to use, digital screen with touch buttons
  • Convenient water level indicator inside the cooking pot
  • Easy to clean non-stick cooking pot (dishwasher safe)


The DualChef has a sleek look and feel, although perhaps not as stylish as a Philips, this hard-working machine is more about practicality over looks, and at its size, it is unlikely you will be leaving it out on the countertop either way.
