  • Multi-Functionality, there are 6 cookers, that all work to an excellent standard, in the shape, size and price of one machine.
  • The Utensils that come with it, with the Instant Pot IP-LUX60 having a rice paddle, soup spoon and measuring cup, there’s no reason for you to say I fancy that recipe, I’ve got the ingredients but I just don’t have what I need to make it with.
  • Timer, you can put in your porridge oats and water the night before and wake up with nothing more to do than to pour it into your bowl and leave the dishes to soak.

Instant Pot IP-LUX60 Product Overview

The Instant Pot IP-LUX60 6-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker has everything you could ever want from a cooker, well, everything you could ever want from six of them actually – pressure cooker, sauté/browning, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer and keep warm, allowing you to make whatever meal you can think of (and the recipe booklet included with the Instant Pot IP-LUX60 means that you can also make some new and exciting dishes).

We rate this canner as the best value (see lowest price) for anyone on a budget looking for a quality product.  You can't go wrong with the LUX60.

The 3 temperature settings for browning/sautéing and slow cook mean that you don’t fit your schedule around the Instant Pot IP-LUX60, the Instant Pot IP-LUX60 cooks around what’s best for you. With functions such as ‘Keep Warm’ which mean that you can come back to your food whenever you’re ready (within 10 hours which, let’s be honest, is plenty long enough) and ‘Timer’ which allows you to delay the Instant Pot IP-LUX60’s actual cooking of the food itself in the first place. Do you have some extra time in the morning but know that you won’t be back for dinner until much later, and that you might be tempted to eat out? Just prepare your meal in the morning, or even the night before if you don’t have time and set the timer accordingly so that you can come home to the Instant Pot’s IP-LUX60 most-inviting aromas.

The control pad is large and easy to use. It’s labelled in such a way that you can immediately launch 1 of the 10 Smart Programs that you wish to enable to optimize the Instant Pot IP-LUX60 and the delicious tasting food that you get out of it.

The fact that the Instant Pot IP-LUX60 meets the North American Electrical Standards and is UL/ULC certified – thanks to the inclusion of 10 proven security features – pressure regulator protection, excess pressure protection, anti-blockage vent, safety lid lock, lid close detection, leaky lid protection, extreme temperature and power protection, automatic pressure control, automatic temperature control and high temperature warning, will only put your mind more at ease when leaving it unattended so that you can work in peace.

My Instant Pot IP-LUX60 Review

Upon un-boxing the Instant Pot IP-LUX60 the first thing that I noticed straightaway was the size. It amazed me that a tool with so many varied functionalities could be so compact and be so small, the perfect size for my kitchen, incidentally.

I resolved to test it immediately and so after reading the recipe booklet (which comes in not only English but also Spanish, French and Chinese with meals that are as varied and colourful), gathering my ingredients together I plugged it into the nearest socket, selected my favoured smart program and turned it on. It was a breeze and my meal came out flawlessly. To my surprise the meat was tender and the green beans weren’t limp at all, despite being in a stew.

The Instant Pot IP-LUX60 is also highly energy efficient, typically saving up to 70% energy (I’ve worked out that it saves me around 67.5%) and 70% of the cooking time, which is ideal when I’m rushing around and trying desperately to sort things out.

The anti-blockage vent and lid close detection are two of the most useful safety devices that I’ve found on the Instant Pot IP-LUX60. Gone are the days of the lid not being properly secured and when you went to open it you had to wait for the pressure to drop and by that time your food had gone cold, or when food got in the way of the vent causing an increase of pressure and your food was too tough to eat or swimming in flavourless liquid.

The Instant Pot IP-LUX60 also makes very little noise and generates little to no steam which makes concentrating on the important upcoming projects that much easier. I know how it simplifies my life.

My Final Conclusion

Buying the Instant Pot IP-LUX60 has revolutionized the way I see mealtimes. I no longer have to put my food into the cooker and wait for hours on end for my food to be ready (when I should be working but simply can’t concentrate). With the Instant Pot IP-LUX60 I can just put my food into it, wait for a short amount of time and come back to my freshly cooked meal that comes out perfectly each time.

The Instant Pot IP-LUX60 is a cheap way to bring healthy, luxurious food into your lifestyle. If this isn’t quite the model for you, consider reading our other Instant Pot reviews.

The Instant Pot IP-LUX60 is has consistently been named as the best pressure cooker year-on-year by major retail outlets. For me, it’s a clear winner of its category. The only thing that lets it down is the rather high price tag – but it’s always going to be expensive get the best.

I bought this because it claims to do what I wanted and instead of buying several different items…..and the price attracted me also. Suffice it to say, it does everything exactly as described. I am very, very happy with my purchase. I’ll be sending my daughter off to college with her own, as she’ll be further away and not able to come home regularly. Great investment, great pricing.

    Elizabeth says January 29, 2016

    Thanks Sasha! Great idea about giving one to your daughter as well 🙂

      Kathy says November 28, 2016

      Can it be used for canning?

        Elizabeth says November 29, 2016

        Yes, but probably not the best product. I would look at the All American 921.

Kim C says January 16, 2017

I am looking to purchase one of the Instant Pots and cannot decide on the IP DUO60 or IP LUX60, I have found a DUO60 that has been updated and it has eggs, cake and timer the LUX60 has poultry and delay start but no cake and egg cooking…also the DUO60 does not have low pressure. Can you give me your opinion on which one is better or more useful than the other and how often and what would you use the low pressure for?

Thank you!!


    Elizabeth says January 18, 2017

    For the money, the DUO60 is the best in my opinion.

      Kristin says May 4, 2017

      Can you still make cakes in the DU060 without the cake button function?

Kim C says January 19, 2017

Ok thank you!!
