Nowadays you probably hear someone talk about the Instant Pot and how good this equipment is. With such noise around this product, we decided it’s time to bring our review on Instant Pot Duo60 6 qt. If you already follow us you know how much we like a piece of good kitchen equipment!
Before we start our Instant Pot Duo60 6 qt review we first need to clarify what an Instant Pot is. To simplify things, this equipment is a multi-use cooker that can work as a slow cooker, rice cooker, electric pressure cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, sauté/browning pan, and even a warming pot. This single appliance can do the job of around seven different appliances and tools.
Now that you are familiar with an Instant Pot lets jump to the review.
Every time we think about an Instant Pot the first thing that comes to mind is a high-tech pressure cook. And if you really think about it we are right. With equipment like this, you can cook lots of different things in lots of different ways. This model features eight preset food buttons, including the most common ones: soup/broth, meat/stew, bean/chili, poultry, rice, multigrain, porridge and yogurt. It also gives you the option of using the sauté, pressure cook, slow cook or steam cooking methods, which opens up many cooking possibilities and makes this device one of the most versatile.
Besides all these different modes, the Instant Pot 7-in-1 Duo comes in different sizes that range from 3-quart to 8-quart. For our tests, we decide to work with the 6 Quart Duo because we believe this is the most balance size of the other models. With a 6 quarter capacity, you can easily make food for up to roughly six people, which makes it perfect for a busy family.
As if all this were not enough, this Instant Pot has some more useful features. If you like to plan your meals in advance, this is a great equipment for you. This pressure cook features a delay start button which means that you can place food inside and set the Instant Pot to cook your food up to 24 hours later. If your food finishes cooking but you aren’t ready to eat yet, the keep warm button can maintain a warm temperature without cooking your food further.
We already talked about this in many other kitchen equipment reviews, for us, good equipment has to be easy to use on a daily basis. In our opinion doesn’t make much sense to buy equipment that will give more work than help. Good equipment as to be easy to use, easy to clean and easy to store and the Instant Pot DUO60 6 qt does exactly these 3 things.
After you read the manual and after you get familiarly with the different modes, using the Instant Pot is very straight forward. Cleaning is another easy task to do with this equipment. With 4 dishwasher safe accessories, the process of cleaning is very simple, just pot the accessories in the dishwasher, and wait until everything is clean.
