Instant Pot Recall

Recommended Posts

The devices recalled aren't even pressure cookers.  They are essentially slow cookers/casseroles.

However, FWIW, I would speculate that Instant Pot (IP) might well be suffering from a more general problem with some of its temperature controls. Last September I replaced a failed IP pressure cooker with a new one.  Within a few weeks it was obvious that the new pot had a defective thermostat and couldn't properly operate as a slow cooker.  In January, after multiple emails and phone conversations IP shipped me replacement. 

Unfortunately, the thermostat on this pot failed in its first use as a slow cooker.  To my surprise IP shipped me a 2nd replacement unit without asking more than a few questions.  Made me think there was a bigger problem than just my failed pot.  I just unpacked the "2nd replacement" today and it tested out Ok both in pressure and slow cook modes.  When I get my courage up, I'll risk cooking a dinner in it! :lol:

I have had mine for about a year and use it 2-3 times a month as a pressure cooker and have had no problems. Haven't used it as a slow cooker yet.

Scared me for a sec! :o So it's just that particular type/model (I've never seen one like that before) and "made for walmart" IP's.

This recall is for Instant Pot's Multi-cooker, NOT their electric pressure cooker.

Picture shows pressure cooker.......................

The picture/video at the top of the page is an ad and has nothing to do with the article. 

If you read the article and scroll down a bit, a picture of the Gem 65 8-in-1 multicooker is shown...this is the item that is the subject of the recall.

I believe Linda is correct. If you follow the recall link the top image is of instant pots pressure cooker. That isn't part of the article though. It's some type of review video for crockpot's branded "multi-cooker" and instand pots pressure cooker. However, the dude in the video refers to them both as a "multi-cooker" in the sense they are multi use pressure cookers.

Going to the actual recall article though it's clear that Linda is correct. The photo is of instant posts "branded" multi-cooker. The recall is on those specific types produced for wally's and NOT what most all know as the "Instant Pot" (pressure cooker and multi use device). 
 

Edited: AND... she just beat me to it.... :lol: Good on ya, Linda
