The NEW Instant Pot Max is Coming! WOOHOO!
If you haven’t jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon yet, the pressure’s on (pun intended). The slick NEW model will be released this year – and the rumored Instant Pot Max features will make your life easier. Enjoy canning foods? Want to cook foods even faster? You’re going to love this new model.
The new Instant Pot Max features:
- Faster Cooking: The new Instant Pot Max will be able to reach pressure up to 15 pounds per square inch (PSI), which means it will cook foods up to 15% faster (other models have a 12 PSI maximum). It’ll also be able to hold its pressure at a high level continually.
- Canning Feature: With its higher maximum pressure, the new Max will be able to tackle pressure canning. This means you’ll be able to make home-made jams, jellies, sauces, and more.
- Stirring Feature: A useful addition is the planned agitation feature that will stir food. Yes!
- Sous-vide Cooking: The new Instant Pot Max may be able to sous vide, a method of cooking that involves vacuum sealing food in a plastic bag and submerging it in a temperature-controlled water bath. It’s yet not confirmed whether the launch version will contain this feature.
- Updated Controls: With a fancy touchscreen display, backlit LED labels, and a central control dial, you can easily navigate menu options and select what you want.
- Added Safety Features: The new Instant Pot Max is rumored to have upgraded safety features, such as automatic slow venting, pulsed venting, and quick-release venting. The lid includes an automated valve that opens on its own to release pressure when needed.
According to CNET.com, other Instant Pot Max cooking options include manual pressure cook, sauté or brown, steam, slow cook, soup or broth, and yogurt. You can also tweak the presets to adjust pressure and temperature or add a delayed start. (Photo Credits)
