As someone who has owned the DUO (both 6-quart and 8-quart versions) and ULTRA, I'd say the "extra features" of the PLUS are worthless gimmicks.

Something to realize is that by and large, an electric pressure cooker only adds one real major benefit over a stove-top cooker: the convenience of not having to tend to it. Heat is heat and pressure is pressure. The buttons are not magic, and I know far more people who do NOT use the pre-made settings than DO because they're like the "popcorn" setting on your microwave: it might work for someone, but more often than not, you end up too much or too little time.

I got my first Instant Pot when it was just my wife and myself. I started with the 6-quart DUO, and moved up to the 6-quart ULTRA, thinking it would rock my world. It did not. It's gimmicky and overpriced (though things like the improved vent and removable power cord were appreciated). I also found that the 6-quart was too small, since you can't fit 6 quarts of liquid (soup, chili, whatever) in there. I flipped that and went to the 8-quart DUO and it's been great. It was perfect for 2 people who like leftovers and even better since we've had a kid. I can't imagine going less than 6 quarts for anyone and personally 8 quarts is where it's at (I even tried a 10-quart model, but that was too big for us).

I use it all the time, for a wide spectrum of food. A lot of Instant Pot fanatics make it sound like it's the greatest device ever invented and will do everything you can imagine. It isn't and it won't. It has its place, though, and I'm glad I have it. I never thought I'd want to make my own yogurt, but after doing it once on a whim, I do it all the time, now.

As for other brands, yes, you can spend less. I'm one of those people that assumes that for every brand that defines a product (eg. "Instant Pot" is synonymous with "electric pressure cooker"), there is a cheaper product that does exactly the same thing. I even tried one (though I can't remember the brand), but the truth is that it didn't feel as...polished. It was just a little less nice in every way. To me, one of the IP's best features is the stainless pot. The majority of the cheaper ones are aluminum with a nonstick coating. Even though the one I tried had a stainless inner pot, it wasn't significantly cheaper than the IP and like I said, just didn't feel as nice.


I ordered an 8-quart used from Amazon before they put the new version on sale and my "Very Good" came with a dent so big that the bottom was partially detached and the whole unit rocked instead of sitting flat. I've gotten nearly-new stuff for dirt cheap via the Warehouse in the past, so this was probably a fluke. As usual, Amazon took it back without issue.

been on the edge of getting one of these for a while, this one has the extra features, and the best price in a while, very tempting, anyone know if there are any more generic ones that have the same capabilities? would rather not spend $90 if I could spend less. since all the youtube channels and recipe books are specifically designed for instant pots though, it might be best to stick with the actual name brand

We have the 8 quart version, but I'm also getting this for the smaller meals or to cook batches of veggies for our toddler. We tried the 3 quart version but it was way too small for our smallest needs.

corvato, I looked at other brands but this has the best quality, as well as the biggest user base for a long time, which says a lot. It'll be cheaper during Black Friday again, I'm sure, but why wait 5 months to save $15?

Conversely, why waste $15 now when it'll be cheaper in the fall?

All comes down to whether you need this now, or you're just curious about it and would like to try it out when it comes down to a price you find more in line with your needs. Personally, between my Anova, my Crock Pot, and the rest of the stuff in the kitchen, this is more of an item that I've got a set price point on. I'm content to wait for something lower. Others might not be. To each their own.

You could do the Amazon Warehouse Deals, condition used-acceptable for $61. This one says there is a small imperfection, so it has a good description compared to most:

Edit: this one sold, and the rest in the same condition at this moment in time say "large imperfection."

My 8 qt acceptable condition had two very small dents on the back, but was otherwise new and unused. YMMV of course.

Bought one for my wife, she loves it. She tried to talk me out of buying it when I was getting it but she uses it all the time and never the crockpot anymore

If you scroll down on this listing, there is a video by consumer reports that compares Krock Pot and Instant Pot and concludes that for 30$ less, Krock Pot is almost as good, barring the yogurt was creamier and thicker in Instant Pot although the yogurt Krock Pot made was good enough. Rest all functions and dishes were a tie.

I'm looking for this in the 8qt version. Any idea when it would come up on sale and what would be the best price on it?

Arguably, this is a better interface than the Ultra or the MAX because of the buttons but you do give up slightly faster cooking time and more temperature control.

I was reading that the MAX isn't all that, so stick to the DUO Plus or the ULTRA. Obviously only a few reviews are out for it right now but it isn't a good sign.
