Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus review

Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus

Instant Pot has released a new model of the Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus pressure cooker, which is available in two sizes, 6 and 8 quarts. The pressure cooker was made more powerful. Now its power is 1200W (for 6Qt) / 1400W (for 8Qt). Proceeding from this, the heating time to a predetermined temperature should decrease, which means that the dish will be ready faster.

The Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus design is a combination of Instant Pot DUO Plus and Instant Pot Ultra. The control panel has 8 intelligent programs that provide 48 preset cooking times and a control dial to scroll through Smart Programs, modify status icons, adjust time, temperature and pressure levels. The dial is also a button to confirm your selection. The buttons are located at an angle relative to the display.
