9-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker with Advanced Microprocessor Technology, Stainless Steel Cooking Pot – 3 Quart
If you live a fast-paced, healthy, and eco-friendly lifestyle, Instant Pot® is designed specifically for you.
Instant Pot® is a smart Electric Pressure Cooker designed by Canadians with the objective of being Convenient, Dependable and Safe. It speeds up cooking by 2~6 times
making it extremely energy-efficient, while, preserving nutrients and preparing healthy, tasty dishes.
Convenient with Intelligent Programming Instant Pot® Ultra 9-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Cooker is the next generation in kitchen appliances. Designed for the home chef looking for a greater degree of customization and control for even greater precision cooking.
The Ultra combines the functions of a Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice/Porridge Cooker, Yogurt Maker, Sauté/Searing, Steamer, Warmer, Sterilizer, and, truly new and unique feature, the Ultra program. The ‘Ultra’ provides complete custom programming for pressure and non-pressure cooking. Now, one can set the exact parameters desired to achieve perfect results each and every time. And, with the ‘Altitude’ adjustment, the guesswork is eliminated from recipe conversion to provide a more precise cooking time.
Built with 14 smart programs: Soup/Broth, Meat/Stew, Bean/Chili, Egg, Slow Cook, Sauté/Searing, Rice, Porridge, Steam, Sterilize, Yogurt, Warm, Pressure Cook, and Ultra. Now, your favorite dishes are as simple as selecting your preferences and having them ready up to 70% faster.
The ‘Ultra’ is designed with a large, blue LCD display with a ‘Cooking Indicator’ providing one a visual on the progress of your dish from preheating, through the cooking phase, and Keep Warm. A central dial with a simple turn and press provides added precision in program selection and adjustments. And, the new ‘Quick Release Button’ ensures the safer handling of the steam release after cooking is completed.
Instant Pot® has moved into a category of its own with the Instant Pot® Ultra!
How It Works
The microprocessor carefully runs lab-tested algorithms to control the time, cooking pressure and temperature to ensure consistent cooking results. Users can customize these settings to control pressure level, adjust cooking time and a cancel button, allowing one to achieve their preferred cooking results. For instance, the “meat/stew” key is programmed to prepare perfectly tender, thoroughly heated meat dishes; however, users can attain fall-off-the-bone results by adjusting the cooking time.
The fully sealed environment traps the flavors, nutrients, and aromas of the food instead of releasing them throughout the home. During pressure-cooking, heat is distributed evenly, deeply and quickly once pressure is built. In addition, minimal water is required for steaming so vitamins and minerals are not leached or dissolved. As a result, greens retain their bright colors and phytonutrients, meats and bones are thoroughly cooked yet tender, and whole grains and beans are soft and delicious, all with remarkable consistency.
Designed to cater to varying tastes and food conditions, Ultra has adjustable settings to achieve one’s desired cooking 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, ‘Keep Warm’, and 3 temperatures in ‘Warm’ to preheat food.
The 24-hour delay start allows users to postpone the cooking start to have dinner ready when you are. Automatic ‘Keep Warm’ holds the temperature of the meal until you are ready to serve. With the Ultra, one can easily turn the ‘Keep Warm’ function ON/OFF.
Dependable with Consistent Results
Instant Pot® Ultra 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. Green peas, sweet corn, and baby carrots can be steamed in 2 to 3 minutes, fresh or frozen. For mashed potatoes, there is no longer a need to boil in water for 50 minutes, steam them in Instant Pot® for only 15 minutes. A dish of chili or Irish stew can be prepared within an hour, without spending the time to carefully monitor the progress.
