So, I recently ventured into the Instant Pot world. I never thought I would, because I was terrified of the thought of a pressure cooker exploding, but I broke down and gave it a shot. I am so glad that I did! The Instant Pot has become my best friend. Seriously, something as easy as cooking hard boiled eggs had become so frustrating to me because the shells would stick, and chunks of egg would come off. It was a mess. I would end up throwing away the eggs because they turned out so horrible. With the Instant Pot, I get perfect eggs every time!

I love that I can make dinner in a short amount of time. My meats come out moist and delicious every time! Also, with Instant Pot’s safe guards, I do’t have to worry about it exploding, so my fears are calmed. In fact, I love it so much that I now own 2! The Instant Pot has so many possibilities, and you can make everything from soup to roasts, and even yogurt. They really will be the best thing you could ever buy for your cooking needs!

The perfect companion to your existing Instant Pot®, use it for preparing side dishes, vegetables or other accompaniments such as rice. Great for smaller households or where space is at a premium. The perfect small appliance for students heading off to college or for bringing along when traveling. The Instant Pot® Duo Mini emits very little steam, heat or cooking smells.

The microprocessor carefully runs lab-tested algorithms to control the time, cooking pressure and temperature to ensure consistent cooking results. You can customize these settings with the operations keys to control pressure level, “+” and “-“ to adjust cooking time and the “Cancel” to allow you to achieve your preferred cooking results.

The fully sealed environment traps the flavors, nutrients and aromas within 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.

Each program of the Instant Pot® Duo Mini, 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
  • 3 temperatures in “Slow Cook” to complete the tasks of a common slow cooker.
  • 3 temperatures in “Keep Warm” to maintain food at different serving temperatures.

The delay start, up to 24 hours, allows you 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.
