The newest Instant Pot, called the Instant Pot Max, promises to cook food faster and give you more options than other models of the popular electric pressure cooker.
The Instant Pot Max can crank up its pressure to a full 15 pounds per square inch (psi), an ability once reserved to stovetop pressure cookers. (Other Instant Pot models have a 12 psi maximum.) The higher pressure means that the Instant Pot Max should cook ingredients up to 15 percent faster than the company's quickest appliances do today.
The Instant Pot Max has a new automatic pressure-venting function. With current Instant Pots, you either wait for a natural release or manually open the steam valve. With the Max, you can program it to release its pressure quickly, slowly or pulse for moderate speed.
The Instant Pot Max's other enhancements include a slick touchscreen display, updated controls with backlit LED labels and a central control dial you can use to navigate through the Max's menu options.
