Elegant, Durable Design, Dependable Consistent Results

What we like is that Instant Pot generates almost no noise and leaks no steam. It traps all the aromas in the food. It cooks food without heating up the surroundings. It is truly a kitchen-friendly appliance. The 3-ply bottom stainless steel inner pot is extremely durable and leaves no health concerns of non-stick coating residual. The new slim body design has a smaller foot print and lid holders for both left- and right- handed users. The brushed stainless steel exterior is finger print resistant. It is easy to clean and maintain.

Instant Pot IP-DUO series uses the latest 3rd generation technology with an embedded microprocessor. During the cooking process, the microprocessor monitors the pressure and temperature, keeps time, and adjusts heating intensity and duration. Even the volume of food is also taken into consideration. The cooking programs have been lab-tested hundreds of times for optimal effect. These greatly improve

cooking results and maintain consistency


Is Instant Pot Safe To Use?

Electric pressure cookers are generally  extremely safe as they are not on stove top heat. Unlike stove top pressure cookers that may need intervention when something goes wrong – like forgetting to turn down the heat – electric pressure cookers are able to monitor cooking and act accordingly to remedy any situation themselves.

Safety feature, electric pressure cooker safety, 10 safety mechanism 10 Proven Safety Mechanisms

Safety without Compromise

 Instant Pot is carefully designed to eliminate many common errors from causing harm or spoiling food. It has passed the stringent UL & ULC certification giving you full proof safety and peace of mind. Instant Pot protects you with 10 proven safety mechanisms and patented technologies.

1. Safety Lid Lock prevents accidental opening while the cooker is pressurized

2. Pressure Regulator ensures working pressure to be under the safety limit of 15.23psi (105kpa)

3. Smart detection of leaky lid (e.g. steam release is at open position)

4. Anti-blockage Vent design prevents food debris from blocking the vent

5. Using a magnetic sensor, Lid Position Detection monitors whether the lid is in an unsafe zone for pressure cooking.

6. Automatic Pressure Controller keeps pressure always in the safe range

7. Excess Pressure Protection releases excess pressure into internal chamber in a dangerous situation

8. Automatic Temperature Control regulates temperature based on the type of program being selected

9. High Temperature monitoring avoids burning food

10. Electrical current and temperature fuse cuts off power if the current or internal temperature exceeds safety limits

What we don’t like about the Instant Pot 7 in 1

  • If pressure is reached high Electrical current and Temp fuse cuts of its power, of course it is supposed to be for safety so it is all good but what happens that pressure cooker slowly shuts off and when one opens up the pressure cooker’s lid, food might be still uncooked. The best way around that we found is to check on look at lid and see lock is up indicating internal pressure. Once it is done, it is almost like set it and forget it mode.
  • Opening the lid can be bit tricky due to pressure suction lid and inner pot get suction. To best way to open the lift slightly tilt lid at the angle to break the pressure suction.
  • Although pressure cooker is safe, when first open it can release lot of heat due to pressure cooking, it is best that small kids do not open the lid early and handle it with caution.

It is hard to compare with other electrical rice cooker or pressure cooker, as instant pot is one of the unique electrical pressure cooker. We have used instant pot a few times a week and so far we have not had any problem with breaking or not working any time.

How to Clean Instant Pot 7 in 1?

  • Inner pot is dishwasher safe
  • Outer pot can be wipe clean
  • Lid is hand wash only and little tricky to dry
  • Pressure release valve and internal valve can be yanked off to clean
  • Outer pot has trough near lid which can be tricky to clean

Their company website is a goldmine for anyone interested in learning more about electric pressure cookers.
