Instant Pot Duo Nova 6 Quart

This week we are back with the #1 multicooker in America, the Instant Pot. Today we bring you the Instant Pot Duo Nova review, with one purpose: discover everything about the newest addition to the Instant Pot family. For this particular review, we decided to choose the 6-quart model because we believe that it is the most versatile model of the Duo Nova line.

Cooking with the most popular model of Instant Pot is even easier with the Duo Nova. Its updated lid means you never have to worry about whether or not you remembered to close the steam release valve again, because when you close the Duo Nova lid it automatically seals the pressure valve! To release the steam faster, just push the quick-release button to let the pressure out.

The Instant Pot Duo Nova is the next generation of the one-touch multi-cooker that pressure cooks quickly, sauté, steams, slow cooks, warms, and makes delicious meats, eggs, rice, soup, yogurt and more.

A New Feature on the Instant Pot Duo Nova

If you own one of the previous models of the Instant Pot Duo, like the 6-quart model, you probably know how frustrating it is when you swore to seal the machine, but you actually didn’t.

This new model has an Easy Seal Lid, which automatically sets to seal when you close it. So, no more wasting time with unclosed valves. But this is not the only change in the new Instant Pot Duo Nova. It comes with an Easy Steam Release Button, which sits an inch or two away from the steam nozzle, that you can press. We really like this new feature because it keeps our fingers out of the way of the hot steam.

Similarly to the Instant Pot Duo, this new model combines multiple appliances into just one. We really like it because it allows us to do multiple things, such as Chilis, Stews, Rice and a lot of other things. Another benefit of having a multi-cooker like this is that it can save you counter space, storage space, and money because you can use it for multiple cooking needs.

Clear, Simple Controls

The Duo Nova’s one-touch Smart Program settings let you start cooking instantly. Just press a button for soup, broth, beans, chili, poultry, slow cooking, sautéing, rice, multigrain, porridge, steaming, yogurt, pressure cooking, or keeping warm. Its bright blue display tells you everything you need to know about what’s happening inside.

Safety is another major feature of this new Instant Pot Duo Nova. It’s Advanced Safety Protection, with 10+ built-in safety features, including Overheat Protection, Safety Lock and more ensure safe pressure cooking.
