There are all sorts Instant pots there are multicookers. Just because one of them has a Kleenex-style brand name that (for some) represents the entire category, there is a lot of competition. You should go shopping to see what suits you.

Machines with a capacity of 6 quart are pretty standard and I really don’t see the point in using anything smaller. Cutting doesn’t save you a lot of money, you can cook small or double batches in a larger pot, and who doesn’t like to remember that the freezer has homemade chili peppers or soup when cooking dinner seems like too much work? If you cook a lot, consider the size of 8 quarts. It’s worth the extra space in the cupboard, and this extra area at the bottom of the pan makes stewing and frying easier.

Not only pressure cookers but also multicookers often advertise themselves as 10 (or so) in one with a variety of settings such as chicken, cheesecake and brown rice. Ignore presets. Important settings – or at least my favorites – are pressure cooking, slow cooking and frying, as well as useful second-level features such as sous vide, yogurt and steam. At the moment 1200-watt models are the place where you get the best burning.

One suggestion before you buy: look at how the control panel on the one you’re looking at makes you feel. Operating your multicooker shouldn’t cause you a headache, and Instant Pot and several other brands are known for making machines that have too busy interfaces with too many options. However, over time, some of them have become more intuitive. Our main choice – the Instant Pot model – has impressively simplified controls.

None of our tested apps or internet connections deserve to be used. If your multicooker encourages you to download a mobile app, you can safely ignore it all. Things like multicookers with lids for air fryers can also still be avoided.

While rice cooked in a pressure cooker is excellent, I prefer to have a separate rice cooker, as there are many products for the multicooker that go well with rice, and rice cookers store rice much better over long periods of time.

Finally, if you are an experienced professional and happy with the multicooker you already have, there is no serious reason to change it to a new one. Instead, do as my dad says, and “drive until the wheels fall off,” and then grab one of them. Until then, use the extra money to buy good cookbooks to help you make the most of what you have. My favorite cookbooks are listed at the end of this shopping guide.
