They have a similar one at Costco.com with accessories for $69.99 but I can't verify since the model # is different and also the one I bought is 1300W and the online one is 1200W. Here's the link to the other one in case you want it:

I can't find the exact same one on Amazon but Home Depot has it for $99:

This one cooks at higher pressure = shorter cook times. It has sous vide, as does IP Ultra . PQP takes a long time to preheat for sous vide unless you saute first. Not sure about Ultra, there. PQP has high pressure only; IP Duo and up all have both high and low and full control over how long to cook. Both PQP and IP have a stainless steel inner pot. PQP yogurt is the boil method only. But you can use the sous vide to do cold start yogurt. You can do either boil or cold start with the IP yogurt program. Spare parts are much easier to get for IP than this brand.

There's an article at PressureCookingToday.com about this brand. It's a nice machine. I have the 8qt. I can use IP gaskets on mine. I see how the yogurt is implemented, and lack of low pressure on the PQP, and price, as the major distinctions between the PQP and the IP Ultra.

But if you want true sous vide, get a tank and an immersion circulator. Circulators control temperature within 1F, but the pressure cookers have a 5F variation. Circulation prevents hot or cold spots. A tank with a rack offers more room and keeps packages separated and clear of walls or floor of the tank. Packages are pretty crowded in a pressure cooker.

Those 4 little recipe books shown in the Costco pics can be downloaded free from TriStarcares or whatever Tristar's costumer service info site is called. There are instant pot accessories of all kinds sold on eBay for $8 to $20 shipped that will get you a similar accessories kit. Depending where you buy this cooker, it might only come with glass lid , manual, and a general recipe book. Other places like Costco have the extras thrown in.

My local Costco has this 8qt pressure cooker for 49.99. This looks like a very nice pressure cooker with a Stainless Steel pot. From the outside comparing it to our 2 Instapots I see no difference at all.

Good deal for any Costco member looking for an 8qt pressure cooker for only 49.99 with Stainless Steel pot. Has all the same accessories as shown the the 1367115 Tristar listed on Costco.com.

Especially nice if you can use the IP gaskets as RS9656 states above.

Trying to decide whether to buy this or not. When the cook time is up, does it go into natural release on its own and then onto warm like the instant pot or do you have to manually turn on natural release? I need something that will release pressure on its own in case I am not there. Thanks for your help.

"Natural release" is what happens when you just let the cooker cook down so that the steam condenses back into water again and flows back down into the pot unattended. Nothing actually needs to be "released." The "keep warm" feature on cookers most has an option to shut it off or leave it on, the default being on. Keep warm won't kick on until the cooker reads the temperature has dropped to 140F.
I have the 8qt PQP, and I like it. My only gripe is Tristar only offers a paltry 6 WEEK factory warranty., not a year like the other brands. Not sure whether or not you can get an extended warranty from Tristar. Lots of people buy these from Costco because Costco will warranty it. If the price is right, then I say Buy.

Sorry for the delay in answering. Too busy working.
