General

Instant Pots are categorized by referring to the number of appliances a single Instant Pot can replace.
For example, the Duo 7-in-1 replaces the following appliances: Pressure cooker, slow cooker, sauté pan, steamer, rice cooker, yogurt maker and food warmer.
Some Instant Pots, like the Duo Evo™ Plus are so versatile it’s impossible to say how many products it can replace! The Duo Evo Plus is a pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, sous vide, sauté, food warmer, cake maker, and stock pot to name a few—and it can do so much more!

Instant Pots are available in a variety of sizes. 3L, 5.7L or 8L.
3L: Called the “Mini”, this size is perfect when cooking for just 1 or 2 people, or for preparing side dishes or rice.
5.7L: This size is suitable for up to 6 portions and is our most popular size.
8L: Cook for up to 8 people or use it for large batch meal preparation.
