Tailored for varying tastes and food conditions, the programs come with 3 adjustable modes. Special features include 3 temperatures in Sauté for browning, simmering or thickening, and 3 temperatures in Slow Cook to complete the tasks of a common slow cooker. Most traditional, modern and international recipes can be easily adapted for Instant Pot.
A 24-hour timer allows for delayed cooking. Automatic keep-warm holds the temperature of the food until you are ready to serve. It works as a perfect porridge maker allowing you wake up with a fresh made porridge.
Instant Pot generates almost no noise, leaks no steam, traps food aromas, and cooks without heating up the surroundings. The durable 3-ply bottom stainless steel inner pot eliminates the health concerns of non-stick coating. The slim body offers a smaller foot print and right and left lid holders are convenient for all. The brushed stainless steel exterior is finger print resistant. Its elegant and durable industrial design makes it easy to clean and pleasurable to use for the years to come.
Dependable Consistent Results
Instant Pot Smart 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.
