What customers say about "Key Specs"
Power Pressure Cooker XL PPC 6 Quart Pressure Cooker
  • What a time saver! Dishes that usually have to slow cook for 4 hours are done in 30 minutes.
  • I'm a family of 7 and this has capacity to feed us all. I tend to overload mine but haven't had issues. Be careful with the inside pieces as they will bend if dropped or banged.
  • Great for me and my kitchen duty. EASY to take apart and clean. Love the new silicon seal. Sure beats my Grandma's rubber seal!
  • Once the seal is on and locked, it's best to wait until it's finished. Because of that, I don't think I'll give up my crockpot.
  • The steam release vent requires manual rotation - which is unheard of even in relatively cheap Korean/Japanese pressure rice cookers at the same pricepoint as this unit -- its not a deal breaker by any means, but it definitely requires some getting used to.
  • The 6 qt pot is the capacity of the pot NOT the cooking capacity. The max cooking capacity is only 5 qts so recipes need to be revised accordingly.
  • There should be some sort of warning about the power and height of the steam jet and how one could cause damage or be burned badly by it. But no, the only mention of that is in small print buried at the end of the instructions.
Instant Pot DUO 60 Plus (9-in-1) 6 Qt Multi- Use Programmable Pressure Cooker
  • Excellent...quietly does it's job. Stainless steel inner, 6qt. Holds alot.works fantastic.
  • Good size capacity compromise, cooks foods fast.
  • Great so far. Perfect hard-boiled eggs. Cooked chicken chili verde in 15 minutes - starting with raw chicken! Awesome capacity.
  • We loved this at first but after about a month of use we are having problems with the lid sealing properly. We always put the lid on the same way, according to the manual instructions, and this has now happened twice.
  • The only problem I've had is with the silicon ring that seals it. It picks up flavors and is difficult to get entirely clean.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Power Pressure Cooker XL PPC 6 Quart Pressure Cooker
  • I was impressed with the weight of it and the size and the many functions this has for me to cook and can.
  • I was a bit concerned about weight because I can't life heavy items but it has not been a problem. I keep it in my pantry, use it an hour prior to dinner, clean it as soon as it cools, 30-45 min then put it away.
  • It fits more than enough for most households, but do not attempt any double batches! I thoroughly enjoy that it also functions as a slow cooker. The fewer doodads in the kitchen, the better.
  • They made the pot wider in diameter, which actually I love - gives more space to mess around. And, it allows a decent size turkey to be cooked ( once or twice a year ).
  • Because the cooking pot does not rigidly attach to the outer unit, and is relatively light weight, trying to scoop out rice is a royal pain. As you attempt to scoop up the rice (or any sticky food item), you just wind up rotating the pot!
  • Just after a couple dozen of times it was used the Teflon coating inside the pot started to came off, and that material is rather toxic.
Instant Pot DUO 60 Plus (9-in-1) 6 Qt Multi- Use Programmable Pressure Cooker
  • The size is definitely a huge plus. Construction quality is very high. The inner stainless vessel is really impressive quality.
  • The 6 quart is the perfect size for a family of 4.
  • Good size capacity compromise, cooks foods fast.
  • The 6 quart size is good for my family of four.

What customers say about "Control"
Power Pressure Cooker XL PPC 6 Quart Pressure Cooker
  • The lid has a nice seal around it which is removable for washing. The lid locks in place tightly and you also have your steam know which turns to the open and closed position.
  • Please make sure when releasing the steam to use a set of tongs or something because the steam is very hot coming out. Cooker has rubber grips on the bottom so the pressure cooker sets firmly on your counter and doesn't slide around.
  • There is also an LED display which included the timer and that counts down so you know how much time is left on your contents.
  • It has a very simple user interface -- electronics do not seem to require a battery, so its just plug, press, and cook. The simplicity of it is also its strength.
  • Temperature controlling is the key.. along with adequate to moderate liquids that will definitely help keep your dish from drying out, scorching, or becoming burnt.
  • Please, for the love of tomatoes, get the proper tests done and/or make adjustments to make this machine deemed a safe canner!
  • The lid completely detaches, and the manual suggests that you use the side handles, and NOT the lid handle to move the unit around. This is also a big surprise when coming from the Korean/Japanese world. Also not a deal breaker -- just requires getting used to.
Instant Pot DUO 60 Plus (9-in-1) 6 Qt Multi- Use Programmable Pressure Cooker
  • Three new preset buttons - cake, egg, sterilize. It also had the yogurt function which other IP do, but not some of the other makes. Large LCD Screen with Digital Display.
  • So glad I got this model. Love the blue display and I don't have to scroll through every time with a dumb dial.
  • It has a big bright display, lights that let you know where you are in the cooking process, and way more features.
  • The display is really nice and clear. You can tell what function is being used and when pressure is set. The diagram on kid shows you what direction the "steam release" valve needs to be.
  • The control panel allows me to see just where I am in the cooking process which is wonderful.

What customers say about "Features"
Power Pressure Cooker XL PPC 6 Quart Pressure Cooker
  • It comes with the Pressure Cooker, Non-Stick Inner Pot, Wire Rack, Steamer Tray, Ladle, Measuring Cup, Condensation Collector, Power Chopper, Instruction Booklet, Canning Book and Recipe Book so you get quite a few accessories.
  • I was a bit skeptical that I could cook 4 pounds of frozen chicken wings in 10 minutes. I did the wings according to directions and they came out good.
  • I like the feature on this where when your food is done cooking, the cooker will automatically switch to the warming button to keep your food warm without it cooking further.
  • I'll never go back to the messy rice cookers that spray mess everywhere again! I feel I can use this for anything and everything. Very Happy.
  • It is the BEST kitchen product I ever bought. I have recommended it to many people and MANY people have purchased this.
  • Cooking pot its very thin, and I am very unsure about the durability of the inner coating - especially because the bottom of the pot contains a hexagonal grid, i.e. "bumps". The hexagonal grid gets in the way of cleaning the pot, especially after making brown rice!
  • The infomercial strongly misrepresents cooking times!
Instant Pot DUO 60 Plus (9-in-1) 6 Qt Multi- Use Programmable Pressure Cooker
  • Can use it on any surface, the bottom does not get very hot.
  • Has a ton of features, but like a microwave you just end pushing the +minute button for most things.
  • The yogurt feature- wow! I used to make it in my crock pot but it was tricky and I would often burn my milk during the "scald" stage. No more baby! It boils the milk for you and then maintains the correct incubation temperature for however long you want
  • It takes waaay longer to get up to pressure treated than my stove top pressure cooker. Like way longer.
  • It takes way longer to cool down than my stove top pressure cooker. Consequently it's pretty far from instant.
