Instant Pot Duo Plus Review
This is the Instant Pot choice for small family cooking or if you have limited counter space. You might be cooking for a small number of people and think the Instant Pot is too much hassle, then you are so wrong. This mini-sized Instant Pot Duo Plus all-in-one multicooker is a testament to the fact that good things come in small packages. There is an inner pot which has a 3-quart capacity, but you can opt for a large 6-quart or an 8-quart option. The Duo Plus serves nine different kitchen functions: pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, rice cooker, yogurt maker, egg cooker, warmer and sterilizer.
You can boil eggs in minutes with the egg-cooker function, while the sterilizing function can effectively clean utensils and pasteurize milk! The device has an embedded microprocessor that monitors pressure and temperature intensity constantly. It is able to distribute heat evenly to ensure a thorough, perfectly pressure-cooked meal every time. If the high pressure might concern you, a simple toggle at the top of the lid can get rid of excess pressure. But, if you decide to the use the one-pot system for slow-cooking, then you have no problem.
Instant Pot Max Review
The Instant Pot Max is a bit heavier than the Duo and Ultra models but has a higher pressure threshold than that of the older versions of the Instant Pot products. In fact, the Instant Pot Max is regarded as the “industry’s first electric pressure cooker to reach 15psi.” This means it can cook faster than most pressure cookers in a shorter time. Also users can do home pressure canning at the 15psi pressure level which means they can do without getting a pressure canner. It has sous-vide, fully-automated steam release as well as NutriBoost technology that mimics boiling water motion to mix food and enhance flavor and texture. But the most standout feature of the Max is the touchscreen which displays real-time cooking temperature and progress. This allows users to easily program cook time and speed. Another feature of the Instant Pot Max includes the automatic pressure venting which eliminates the need to open the steam valve manually but automatically releases the pressure which reduces work done after cooking and prevent overcooking of food. This feature is available in two options- Quick or Pulse release.
Instant Pot Duo 8 Quart Review
The Instant Pot Duo was designed for safety, convenience, and dependability. This Instant Pot speeds up cooking by 2-6 times while using 70% less energy to cook nutritious and healthy meals in an easy and regular fashion. The pot comes with an amazing 14 built-in functions which include – Meat/Stew, Soup/Broth, Bean/Chili, Sauté/Searing, Poultry, Steam, Rice, Multigrain, Porridge, Slow Cook, Keep-Warm, Yogurt, Pasteurize & Pressure Cook.

The pot is solidly built with a stainless steel inner cooking material and maintains the heat and smell of food as the stainless steel is highly durable and print resistant.
