“Which Instant Pot should I buy?” I get asked this question all the time. My answer? Whichever one you decide will make your cooking life SO much easier… And if you can’t decide, buy two. Ha! When I first heard about the Instant Pot pressure cooker, I heard that it could make yogurt, so when I bought my Instant Pot I made sure that the one I chose, had the Yogurt function. There are now several to choose from, so we will walk through them all right now. 😊
Let’s start out with the Instant Pot Lux60 6Qt
This 6qt Instant Pot is perfect for beginners and those who don’t plan on making yogurt, although it is possible to do in this pot. It comes in a 5qt model as well! All in all, a great pressure cooker.
Next Up, the most popular, Instant Pot DUO60 7-in-1
This 6 quart Instant Pot is the most popular, and it is the one I reccommend the most! It has the Yogurt button plus many other preset buttons for ease of use. This style of Instant Pot also comes in an 8 Quart version.
The younger sibling of the Instant Pot DUO60 is the brand new Instant Pot Duo Mini 3qt.
This cute little pressure cooker was JUST released so I’m waiting for mine to arrive. It does have the Yogurt function, it is just half the size of the Instant Pot Duo60. Can’t wait to use it! 🙂
My most recent addition thanks to an amazing deal on Prime day is the Instant Pot DUO Plus 60 9-in-1.
I absolutely love having two pots and this was the perfect upgrade for me. It has a few extra preset buttons when compared to the Instant Pot DUO60 7-in-1. I love it!
Next up is the Instant Pot with Bluetooth
Like you can probably imagine, this Instant Pot comes equipped with Bluetooth which you can use through a free app! Pretty awesome, if you ask me! Check it out here!
And finally, the big daddy, Instant Pot Ultra 10-in-1.
This fancy pot has a completely digital screen and multiple preset functions. You can adjust the pot for cooking at different altitudes which is awesome! This will be my next purchase, a birthday present to myself! HA! 🙂
When you order your Instant Pot, I reccomend ordering an extra Inner Pot.
