Your favorite dishes are as simple as pressing a button — once the Instant Pot® starts there is no need to watch it providing you with added time.
Designed to cater to varying tastes and dietary food conditions, the Smart Programs come with 3 settings, Less, Normal and More to achieve your desired cooking results; three temperatures in ‘Sauté’ for searing, simmering or thickening for a maximum time of 30 minutes, 3 temperatures in ‘Slow Cook’ to complete the work of a traditional slow cooker, and 3 temperatures in ‘Keep Warm’ to maintain food at different serving temperatures.
The 24-hour ‘Delay Start’ feature allows you to postpone the cooking start to have dinner ready when you are. And with the automatic ‘Keep Warm’ your meal holds its temperature until it is time to serve.
How It Works
The fully sealed environment traps the flavors, nutrients, and aromas of the food instead of releasing them throughout the home. Once steam pressure is built during pressure cooking, heat is distributed evenly, deeply and quickly. Minimal water is required for cooking, 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 supple, all with remarkable consistency.
The Instant Pot® Viva was developed with the latest 3rd generation microprocessor 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 Smart Programs have been thoroughly tested to ensure you receive the optimal cooking results in improving the quality and consistency of your dishes.
Carefully designed to eliminate many common errors which may spoil food or cause harm, the Instant Pot® Viva has passed UL & ULC certification and is built with 10 Safety Mechanisms.
