Truly a smart multi-use kitchen appliance, each program remembers 3 sets of customizations in “Less”, “Normal”, and “More” settings on all cooking programs.
Designed to cater to varying tastes and food conditions, the programs come with 3 adjustable settings, “Less”, “Normal” and “More” to achieve one’s desired results; 3 temperatures in ‘Sauté’ for searing, simmering or thickening for a maximum time of 30 minutes, and 3 temperatures in ‘Slow Cook’ to complete the tasks of a common slow cooker, and 3 temperatures in ‘Keep Warm’ to maintain food at different serving temperatures.
The 24-hour delay start feature allows users to postpone the start to have dinner ready when you are. Automatic ‘Keep Warm’ holds the temperature of the meal until you’re ready to serve. With the Plus, one can easily turn the ‘Keep Warm’ ON or OFF even after the program has started.
Instant Pot® Duo Plus developed with 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 taken into consideration. The cooking programs have been thoroughly tested for optimal results. These greatly improve cooking results and consistency of the dishes.
