The standard Nuwave Duet appliance is a compact piece of cookware with interchangeable lids. It's meant to function as both a pressure cooker and an air fryer, depending on which lid you place on top. If you get the deluxe version of the appliance, a third interchangeable lid has also been designed to help you convert the device into an indoor grill. With each appliance, regardless of whether you choose the standard version or the deluxe one, you'll receive accessories such as a recipe book and a fry basket.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Place on Flat Surface

    Before you begin using your Nuwave Duet, you'll need to place it on a flat surface, such as your countertop. No matter which lid you use, the device will be no more than 15 inches tall and 15.5 inches wide, so it won't take up a great deal of space. Once it's resting securely on its base, you can use its extension cord to plug it into an electrical outlet.

  2. Add Food to Pot

    Assuming that you're working with the standard version of this appliance, you'll need to decide whether to pressure-cook or air-fry the first meal you make with it. Either way, you'll need to add the food that you want to cook, such as meat, vegetables, French fries, or soup, to the device's roomy stainless steel pot. If you're not sure what to cook first, you can consult your included recipe book. Those users who are pressure-cooking will be able to cook food from a fully frozen state.

  3. Select Lid

    Next, you'll have to add either the pressure-cooking lid or the air-frying lid to the top of your device, depending on what you want to make. If you don't know which one will work best with the food you're preparing, consult your recipe book once again. Make sure the lid you've chosen is securely attached to the top of your appliance—if you have any concerns about its positioning, take a look at the included instruction manual.

  4. Start Cooking

    Once your device has been filled with food and the lid of your choice has been added to the top, use the buttons on the front of your device to program the time and temperature. You can also use the "Pressure" button to choose between a high or low level of pressure if you'll be using the appliance as a pressure cooker. When you're done programming the device, press "Start" to begin a cooking cycle.

  5. Remove Food

    When your cooking cycle is done, your appliance will give you an auditory notification. You can then remove its lid and remove the food you've cooked with utensils.

How It Works

This device, when used as a pressure cooker, will release hot steam that will quickly cook the food inside the pot while locking in its flavor. Similarly, if you convert this appliance into an air fryer, it'll release a cyclone of hot air that'll encircle the food inside and rapidly fry it so that it's deliciously crispy. No matter what, the cooking process will be quick, and depending on what food items you're cooking, it may be over in as little as 10 minutes. Furthermore, if you want to pressure-cook certain food items in the appliance's stainless steel pot while crisping another type of food above, you can select the "Combo Cook" function. This will allow you to use your appliance as a pressure-cooker and an air-fryer at the same time (with the pressure-cooking lid).


  • Fairly Lightweight

    As appliances go, the Nuwave Duet is fairly lightweight, since it's specified that each one weighs 20 pounds. That means the vast majority of users will be able to lift one onto a countertop by themselves, although it's fine to enlist the help of another person if you find this difficult.

  • Large Capacity

    The stainless steel pot inside each of these appliances has a six-quart capacity when you use the pressure-cooking lid, and a four-quart capacity when you use the air-frying lid. As a result, no matter which cooking function you use, you should be able to cook enough food for at least a handful of people. If you were to cook for your family with a smaller air fryer or pressure cooker, you might have to cook the food in shifts, but that'll probably be unnecessary when you use this appliance.

  • Wide Temperature Range

    With the Nuwave Duet, you'll be able to cook food at a temperature as low as 60 degrees Fahrenheit and as high as 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Unless you're baking, most foods can be cooked within this range, so you may find this appliance useful at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

  • Preheat and Warming Functions

    Each of these appliances has a warming button that will allow you to keep cooked food warm until you press the button again to cancel the cycle. There's also a preheat function, which will enable you to preheat your appliance while you complete another task in your kitchen. Along the same lines, you may find the Delay function to be helpful, too, as it'll allow you to set a time and temperature and then delay the cooking cycle for up to 24 hours.

Positive Points

  • No Oil Required

    While you can add oil to this device (unless you're using the fry basket), it isn't necessary that you add oil, butter, or any other lubricant to make the food inside taste good. If you leave the oil out, you'll end up ingesting up to 70 percent fewer calories than you would if you were to use oil or a similar substance. This may be good news for users who are trying to lose weight, improve their health, or encourage other members of their family or household to do so.

Negative Points

  • Must Hand-wash Most Parts

    Aside from the fry basket, this appliance and its accessories aren't dishwasher safe. As for the stainless steel pot, it must be cleaned with warm water, a mild detergent, and a soft cloth or brush. Meanwhile, the reversible rack must be cleaned with a non-abrasive sponge and hot water. Although these two pieces can soak in warm water for a short period of time, the control panel, base, and lids of this appliance must never be submerged in water. Instead, you should wipe them down with a lukewarm paper towel or cloth.

Critical Advice

It's a good idea to unplug your Nuwave Duet whenever you're not using it because this will automatically release any pressure that's been created inside. However, if you don't want to unplug your device, there's an alternative method of releasing pressure: gently flip the pressure release valve to an "Open" position to allow all the steam out. If you're having difficulty locating this valve, consult your instruction manual, and remember to flip it closed again when all the steam has been released.

The bravo gets hot enough to cause concern I think ie might have been a defective unit. I would not recommend it. I am sending it back land very am very upset that I have to pay 84 dollars for something that is dangerous to use.
I could have fried an egg on the top.
