Safety Without Compromise
Has been carefully designed to eliminate many common errors which may cause harm
- 1. Pressure Regulator ensures the working pressure below the safety limit
- 2. Anti-Blockage Vent prevents food debris from blocking the vent
- 3. Safety lid lock prevents accidental opening of the cooker while it is pressurized
- 4. Designed with a sensor for lid position detection, monitors whether the lid is in an unsafe position for pressure cooking
- 5. Automatic temperature control regulates temperature based on the type of program being selected
- 6. Temperature monitoring avoids burning food
- 7. Pressure controller keeps pressure always in the safe range
- 8. Electrical current and temperature fuse cuts off power if the current or internal temperature exceeds safety limits
- 9. Pressure protection releases excess pressure into internal chamber in a dangerous situation
- 10. Smart detection of leaky lid (e.g. steam release is in the open position)
- 11. Quick Release Button automatically resets the Ultra to the Sealing position when you open or close the lid if the button is in the venting position

What’s in the Box?
First, let’s check out the box design! ooh~ ahh~
We like this new colorful design – definitely a step up from the old Instant Pot’s white cardboard box design.
Makes Instant Pot even more attractive as a gift! 😉
5.1 In-Box Accessories
The Instant Pot Ultra comes with a Steamer Rack, Rice Paddle, Soup Scoop, Rice Measuring Cup, Condensation Collector, Quick Reference Guide, Recipe Book, and the Newly Designed Manual.
The new manual looks so much nicer and it is also easier to read (and understand)! ?
The manual is written in English, French, and Spanish.
5.2 Inner Pot Update
We’re so glad the Instant Pot Company listened to the feedback and changed the inner markings!
The new inner pot has markings for US Quart, Liters, and pressure cooking safety limit.
Love it…but one question
Never ceases to amaze me!
Since purchasing my Ultra 6uart in February I’m constantly amazed by all the uses I have for it. It barely leaves the kitchen counter. I’ve become so used to the speed and convenience, not to mention the versatility…I didn’t know what I was missing.
I got my first instant pot a few weeks ago, the Instant Pot Ultra! I’ve been experimenting with it a lot, and I love it! I haven’t failed a single recipe I tried in it, and it’s saving me so much of my precious time. I highly recommend it!
Never having owned a pressure cooker before, I was searching for a stainless steel interior pressure cooker as I did not want non-stick. I received my Instant Pot as a Christmas gift last year and I have been using it for the last 10 months now. It has COMPLETELY changed the way I cook. Beans come out just like out of a can, hard boiled eggs-perfect, potatoes nice and tender and meats very flavorful. No heat, smells or water vapors in the kitchen and it really is a "set it and forget it" appliance. Great idea to have the built in lid holder too. I'm a FAN of Instant Pot!!
