Do I need to clean the Instant Pot after sauteing the duck?
Before adding the chicken stock, you can remove the grease and oil on the bottom of the Instant Pot.
You can use a wooden spoon to clean it easily.
Personally, I'm doing it but It's not mandatory.
Can I use frozen duck?
Yes, you can make this Instant Pot roast duck recipe with frozen duck.
In this case, add 10 minutes to the pressure cooking time.
To be honest, I don't recommend using semi-frozen or frozen duck for this recipe, since a fresh one would have a much better taste.
How to get a crispy duck?
After cooking, use Instant Pot air fryer lid or Mealthy CrispLid, and Air Fryer the duck at 375 °F for 10 minutes.
You can also use the oven and put the duck under the broiler for 10 minutes for a better taste.

To make it crunchy and crispy then Air Fry it for ANOTHER 10 minutes.
