The best pressure cooker Instant Pot Duo 60

A friend whispered recently. It's like you have a friends in your house. She was talking about the instant pot duo cooking unit currently on display on our kitchen counter. She is too tall to live in a drawer. But the pressure cooker Duo 60 is versatile enough not to bother you.

Chances are you have a friend or relative who just wants to tell you about their Instant Pot. He inspires enthusiastic prose in his Facebook group, where you'll find tips on how to clean it, assurances that new owners will like it and should not fear it, countless food pics and at least one person who call him his darling.

The owners of the Duo 60 say they no longer need a furnace. We found a thread on a site where a user apologized for preferring roasting broccoli in the oven, seeming to be very afraid that Instant Pot users would attack him.

Instant Pot DUO60

  • The 6-liter Instant Pot Duo is a smart 7-in-1 multi-function pressure cooker that combines the benefits of a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a frying pan, a yogurt maker, a steamer and a warming plate
  • Instant Pot Duo takes care of everything
  • Large, easy-to-use control panel with 14 built-in programs, dual pressure, auto heat-up and 3 temperatures for slow skip cooking

Functions of the Duo 60

There are several different models of the Instant Pot and some are available in different sizes. We even have Bluetooth capability. And so it works with a mobile application.

The Instant Pot DUO60 that we tested has six cooking modes. And it has seven functions, including pressure cooking, slow cooking, cooking rice, steaming, stir frying, and yoghurt making and warming.

All of these features have their own buttons on the front of the Instant Pot DUO60. And there are also some other commands. This is certainly not a product that you can use if you are not familiar with pressure cookers.

On the one hand, there is a small button on the top that must be turned to the sealing position to increase the pressure. Turning it towards ventilation, the steam is released, so you will definitely want to put your hand in a suitably protective oven glove before trying.

There is also a "natural" ventilation option, which means that the Instant Pot DUO60 pressure cooker will release the steam itself, which can take up to 15 minutes. You'll know it's safe to open the lid when the small silver float valve next to the button is pressed.

The stainless steel interior of the pan can also be washed in the dishwasher. The lid is not, however.

The pressure cooker also has a number of safety features: when it opens and closes, and when you remove it, the jar emits musical tingles. There are also temperature regulators to keep the unit operating within a safe range.

Our opinion on Instant Pot DUO60 pressure cooker

The Instant Pot DUO60 pressure cooker is an excellent and affordable electric pressure cooker that allows you to cook all kinds of things. Do not get carried away and think that it can replace an entire kitchen, although it can replace your oven when it's too hot to cook.

The Instant Pot DUO60 pressure cooker is very effective for everyday cooking. It allows you to cook healthy dishes for the whole family.

Is there a better alternative to Instant Pot DUO60 pressure cooker?

If you're looking for a little more precision, Instant Pot DUO60 pressure cooker also offers the Ultra, which gives you better control of the temperature. And there are other multi-cookers on the market, like the Cooke, which we found to make a wide variety of dishes very well.

How long will it last?

With its exterior and stainless steel bowl, the Instant Pot DUO60 is a fairly robust kitchen appliance that should provide a few years of cooking without problems.

However, if your kitchen is already overcrowded with a rice cooker, slow cooker, and so on, you may not want to add to the clutter. Remember, newcomers can fail before learning how to deal with the Instant Pot Duo 60 pressure cooker.
