Which model of Instant Pot to buy?
We have the Instant Pot IP-DUO60 model. The DUO models have two pressure settings. Our model is of 6 quart size. If you have a large family and need a 8 quart pot, then get the Instant Pot IP-DUO80. An instant pot with bluetooth is also available. This is the Instant Pot IP-Smart Bluetooth-Enabled . The latest model (as of April 14th) is the Instant Pot IP-DUO Plus60. This model has additional functions like egg, cake, sterilize etc. But for most people, we think the Instant Pot IP-DUO60, is the one to buy.
