Go for an old model - 7 in 1. Half the price. All added functions are just a marketing gimmick: eggs, cake - nothing but a variations of timer settings. Sterilize - bad idea. Electric cookers don't reach the temperature like regular stove top ones.
So, essentially just ordered 7-in-one for $48 with a couple of Discover codes, and this one would cost $96...
Yeah, I'll miss the big blue screen and a rotating dial.

Pretty much. The majority of the buttons on any electric pressure cooker are useless since they're just shortcuts for what you could do with the manual setting, anyway.

There's only a couple of actual differences in brands/models:
- size (6qt or 8qt)
- pot type (stainless vs aluminum/nonstick)
- pressure level (high/low vs only high), and
- non-pressure cooking (slow cooker, saute).

Don't get me wrong, I do love my Instant Pot, but there are cheaper alternatives that are just as good (though if the IP is on sale for a good price, just go with the top name and be done with it). If I ever buy another one, it'll be an 8-quart stainless. They all pretty much have the non-pressure cooking options and I doubt I'll ever use the low-pressure (for yogurt and such).

Regular customers can still stack $10 off HOME10 with 15% HUGESAVER with free shipping on either the Duo60 or the Ultra. The Ultra is pretty hard to get anywhere, and the Duo60 has store pickup in most locations.

What about the sous vide mode on the Ultra? Does that make it any better? I don't really know, but I've been waiting on a deal after missing lots of previous ones.

That's an excellent point and I forgot the Ultra has that capability. My gut tells me that if you're doing enough sous vide cooking to care about sous vide on the IP, you're better off getting a circulator. I've come across discussions regarding the (negative) texture of meat done in the IP (perhaps because it doesn't circulate the water and that matters?), but I'm not speaking from experience and you can Google as well as I can.

Make sure if you purchase a pressure cooker, that it has a stainless steel liner, big difference for Saute, which I use All the Time. Don't get the coated Liner.

Get the 6 qt. It is sufficient for 6 people and also half the price. 8 feels way bigger.

There's actually quite a bit more to this model.

The sous vide has already been mentioned.

You can choose the exact temp it cooks at. For one, it means you could have water at the exact right temp for making coffee or tea in the morning.

The lid automatically resets to seal when closing the lid. So no more surprises coming back to a vented and uncooked meal.

Can be adjusted for altitude.

Pressure release with the touch of a button. It is capable of doing a slow release.

The readout indicates better what is going on inside..warming up, cooking, keeping warm etc.

Agreed. I'd never get a non-stainless steel unit for any reason, personally. I got rid of my nonstick cookware years ago and invested in a nice set of stainless and I haven't looked back. I have some seasoned cast iron if I need something nonstick, but I don't own anything aluminum with a nonstick coating.

Eh, that seems like a lot of justification without much substance. I acknowledged the sous vide already. I'm not convinced it's better than a circulator, but I'll admit it's a nice feature and I don't have enough experience with either option (zero with the IP) to weigh in with a solid opinion. If you're 1.) in the market for an electric pressure cooker, 2.) think you might want to do sous vide, 3.) don't want to invest in a circulator, and 4.) willing to spend this much, then buy it. That said:

Water the right temp for coffee or tea in the morning? Seriously? I really can't imagine a situation where I'd want to use my pressure cooker simply to heat water versus a microwave or stovetop, let alone for coffee or tea. I'm not saying there isn't some situation out there in the universe in which I wouldn't use it, but I have a limited imagination and there are already so many effective ways of heating water that I don't need yet another massive appliance sitting out to do it.

How often do you people forget to seal your lid? My older one makes noise when you seal and unseal; how do you miss that when you're setting it up? I guess everyone gets a little forgetful sometimes, but is it really a problem that needs fixing?

Anyone who needs to adjust for altitude knows how to adjust cooking time for altitude. Maybe this feature is for the Instant Pot user on the go? Traveling between Denver and New York every week and just can't bear to be without their IP?

I can do pressure release with a flip of the valve. I don't need a button.

I'm not trashing the deal or the machine itself. If this is what you want, then it's a good price. I'm simply pointing out for the uninitiated that you can do 100% of what your average electric pressure cooker user does with a cheaper unit. Personally, the same money is better spent on an 8-quart model with less-than-Ultra features. I'm not suggesting that a person should get an 8-quart model over this one, just saying that I think that's a better use of the price difference.

To each their own. I didn't TD the thread or anything.

I am using 6 in 1 instapot for a year now and so far may have used only three or four options. Looks like they keep raising the price adding more buttons. Has anyone used all the options on their cooker so far?
