Instant Pot Duo Plus 9-in-1: key features

Like other Instant Pots, the Instant Pot Duo Plus is a versatile powerhouse that lets you replace multiple appliances with a single multi-cooker. We primarily use our Instant Pot for pressure cooking, which allows you to create deliciously tender meals in a fraction of the time you'd need from a slow cooker. But it's also a great slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, food warmer, sterilizer, and more, offering a world of culinary possibilities.

This model of Instant Pot, the Duo Plus, features Instant's improved pressure vent, a significant upgrade from its predecessor. The vent operates much calmer, pulsing instead of releasing a big jet of steam, efficiently removing the steam without causing any alarm.

One of my favorite things about Instant Pots like this one is that they massively reduce the amount of washing up, too. I use mine to sauté vegetables and brown meat before adding the rest of the ingredients and slow cooking or pressure cooking them; after I'm done, I'm left with a great dinner and just one pot to wash. The Instant Pot's bowl is dishwasher safe, and because it's stainless steel, it's easy to handwash, too.

Instant Pot deals

If you're a fan of Instant Pot multicookers, we expect to see more deals among the Amazon Prime Day Instant Pot deals we'll cover July 16 - 17. Amazon always offers good deals on multiple Instant Pots in the Amazon Prime Day sale, and this year is unlikely to be any different. However, it's worth noting that the deals tend to sell out quite quickly, so you might want to move fast to ensure you bag an Instant Pot bargain.
