Instant Pot IP-DUO60 Rice and Pressure Cooker Review

The Instant Pot IP-DUO607 was developed by Canadians with the goal of being convenient, reliable and safe.  It is energy efficient using 70% less energy and cooking two to six times faster. It has 10 safety mechanisms and is UL and ULC certified meaning it meets the industry’s highest standard.  The safety mechanisms include High Temperature Warning, Automatic Pressure Control, Leaky Lid Protection, Anti-Blockage Vent, Excess Pressure Protection, Pressure Regulator Protection, Safety Lid Lock, Automatic Temperature Control, and Extreme Temperature and Power Protection.


The Instant Pot DUO607 has seven functions wrapped up in one cooker.  It serves as a 1) rice cooker, 2) slow cooker, 3) steamer and warmer, 4) yogurt maker, 5) pressure cooker and also 6) sautés and 7) browns.  The control panel is large and easy to use and it has 14 built-in Smart Programs which include Soup, Meat/Stew, Bean/Chili, Poultry, Sauté, Steam, Rice, Porridge, Multigrain, Slow Cook, Keep-Warm, Yogurt, Pasteurize and Fermented Rice.  The dual pressure settings of high and low help prevent overcooking and reduce cooking time.

The Delay Cooking Timer allows you to be flexible when planning meals.  You can set the timer to delay up to 24 hours.  This is a great resource for busy families and people on the go. With one touch of a button you can put your meal on and not have to worry.  No “watched pots” or constant stirring.  You can do a load of laundry, catch up on your reading, help the kids prepare for school the next day, or just put your feet up and relax.  There are three sauté and three slow cook settings. The slow cooker goes up to 20 hours, so you can even start your meal before leaving for work and come home to a hot, nutritious meal at the end of the day.  The keep warm feature switches on automatically when your meal has finished cooking.

IPDUO607 is so effective because of the embedded microprocessor which uses “fuzzy logic.” Fuzzy logic enables the pot to “think” and adjust things like heat intensity, cooking time and monitor pressure so that you get consistent results every time!

Accessories included with this cooker are a rice paddle, soup spoon, steam rack, condensation collector ,and a measuring cup. You will also receive a User Manual and Quick Reference Guide written in English, French, Chinese and Spanish.  There is also a Pressure Cooking Booklet with cooking times for the IP DUO607 as well as other Instant Pot styles.  The inside pot has a 3-ply bottom made of  stainless steel.  The outside stainless steel will match most kitchen decors and has been brushed so that it is fingerprint resistant.
