The Instant Pot Duo Electric Pressure Cooker is perhaps the most popular and user-friendly model available. It’s easy to use with digital push buttons and a twist-grip lid that emits a chime to let you know it’s attached properly. Although we chose the six-quart size, it also comes in a mini three-quart and large eight-quart version.

It does more than just simmer food – you can use it for canning, making yogurt, steaming rice, baking a cake, and more. Best of all, it’s simple to use. Along with the nine functions, 15 customizable smart programs handle all the guesswork for you: pressure cook, stir-fry, cereal, porridge, oatmeal, soup, broth, slow cook, cake, egg, rice, bean, sterilize, yogurt and under a vacuum.
