From The Manufacturer

Instant Pot Duo Plus is the next evolution in the Duo Series, the #1 best-selling cooker in the Instant Pot family. The Duo Plus 9-in-1 Programmable kitchen appliance with advanced microprocessor technology incorporates all of the great features that made the Duo the #1 best-seller. It has new and improved programs and features to continually support one’s fast-paced, health-conscious and lifestyle. The Duo Plus includes 3 new programs, Cake, Egg, and Sterilize. The Cake program has been designed to pressure cook soft and moist cakes; whereas, the Egg program has been created to prepare perfect eggs in just a few minutes. With the Sterilize program one can pasteurize milk, and sterilize baby bottles, jars, and utensils; as well as, perform certain types of canning much more conveniently than ever before! The Duo Plus is designed with a large blue LCD display with a new user interface to adjust the cooking settings, pressure levels, keep-warm on/off at any time during the cooking process. There are 4 new icons to easily view the status of the cooker, Heat, Pressure Cook, Keep Warm and Sound. The ‘Heat’ indicates heating or cooking in progress, ‘Pressure Cook’ indicates the pressure cook program is selected, ‘Keep Warm’ indicates if it is on/off, and ‘Sound’ indicates if the sound is on/off when cooking starts or is completed. NOTE: This product is 110v and for use in North America, if you live in Europe or other 220-240v territories this product will not operate.

Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

A few additional cooking presets (namely cake, egg, and sterilize) and a slightly nicer looking LCD screen. And that's pretty much it, otherwise these machines are basically identical.
We really like the DUO Plus 60’s new interface because it is a lot more user-friendly than the previous models.
For starters, the digital display uses icons that inform you about what’s happening inside the pot. The Duo Plus also allows you to change the pressure level and cooking time while the machine is in use (the Duo 6-Quart requires you to cancel the cooking program to make changes), and gives you the option to quiet the beeping alarms.

What reviewers didn't like

Another great product from Instant Pot, but most people probably won't want nor need to spend the extra money to upgrade from the DUO60.
We didn’t think these new features were enough for this model to bump the Duo 6-Quart from the top spot, given the price hike, but it’s a great cooker if the additions appeal to you.
