Instant Pot IP-Smart Bluetooth Product Overview

​​Just when you thought a pressure cooker couldn’t add any more functions - along comes the Instant Pot IP-Smart Bluetooth-Enabled Multifunctional Pressure Cooker! Download a free app to your iPhone or iPad, and you can program recipe scripts directly into your cooker. This multi-purpose cooker can be also function as a slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker, and food warmer.  In our opinion, this is the most advanced pressure cooker on the market.  It is pretty expensive (see lowest price), but worth the investment if you are serious about pressure cooker....or just like a really cool product 🙂

​But there is more! Fourteen built-in smart programs will automatically set the correct pressure and time for cooking soup, meat/stew, beans/chili, poultry, yogurt, porridge, and rice. You can also manually adjust the pressure cooker to add or decrease cooking time. The Instant Pot IP-Smart has three temperature settings. It can be used to sauté, slow cook or keep food warm. Dual pressures settings make it easy to select the appropriate pressure for the food being prepared. High pressure has a PSI of 10.2-11.6 and low pressure a PSI or 5.8-7.2.

​This stainless steel pressure cooker is safe. It is certified by both UL and ULC, which sets the industry standard for safe pressure cooking. Safety features include: excess pressure protection, safety lid lock, automatic pressure control, automatic temperature control, high temperature warning, extreme temperature and power protection, leaky lid protection, anti-block vent, and pressure regulator protection. A microprocessor embedded in the cooker monitors the pressure, temperature keeps time, and adjusts pressure and cook time.

​The Instant Pot IP-Smart Bluetooth Pressure Cooker is attractively designed, but is also built to endure. The hinged lid gives easy access to the inner cooking pot that has a 3-ply stainless steel bottom. This cooking pot does not have the Teflon, no-stick coating that has raised health concerns. Stainless steel is also used on the exterior, but this shiny surface is designed to be fingerprint resistant. This appliance is an addition to your kitchen that can be enjoyed for many years.

​There are many advantages to cooking food in a pressure cooker. Food is ready in 1/3 the time of conventional cooking. Chili or stews are ready in just an hour. Inexpensive meats cooked in a pressure cooker become tender and succulent. Frozen food doesn’t have to be defrosted before cooking. Food prepared in this way also seals in flavor and nutrients. The Instant Pot IP-Smart is a pressure cooker and more. As a steamer it can cook fresh or frozen vegetables in just 2-3 minutes. Steamed potatoes make are ready in just 15 minutes.

​The Instant Pot IP-Smart Multifunctional Pressure Cooker comes with a stainless steel steam rack with handles food can be easily lowered into and lifted out of the cooking pot. Silicone mini mitts, a rice paddle, soup spoon, measuring cup and condensation collector are also included and a quick reference guide cooking booklet and cooking tables.

​Quality comes from experience. The Instant Pot Company has designed programmable pressure cookers for three generations. The Canadian company states its goals are to design an appliance that is safe, convenient and dependable. The on-line website has an abundance of information about their products as well as easy access to extra cooking pots and replacement parts.


Our Instant Pot IP-Smart Bluetooth Review

When I got rid of all my Teflon-lined pressure cooker, pots and pans, I looked around for replacements. Then I read about the Blue-Tooth Enabled Multifunctional Cooker and I knew I had to have it. Why replace so many appliances, when you can get by with just one!

​I love the ease of step-by- step instructions recipes. And I like being able to control the cooker with my I-phone. I remember my grandmother using a pressure cooker and I know she would be amazed and delighted with the technology and multi-purposed appliance that I have now. The fact that this cooker has so many functions has made me enjoy cooking and experimenting in the kitchen.

I especially like the porridge and yogurt I have made. This appliance is not only practical it is fun!

Wow…this is something we will need to look into. A slow cooker, pressure cooker and rice cooker…..all in one, along with other uses? As we have limited space on counters in our kitchen and we have MANY separate appliances….I do believe it is time to do some spring cleaning, and get this all-in-one. I checked out the reviews, and I’m sure we’ll love it. Thanks for sharing this! 🙂

Can only wish it was still $149.95.. Current price $179.95 – My $15 3 cup B&D rice cooker bowl finally wore out, scrapping rice is not fun. I found an 8 quart All in one on Ebay for $30, dent and bent special, it is truly a piece of junk but it works for now, 10 minute rice with chicken, 1 hour fresh bean soup! I didn’t know these devices existed, after more reading I’ve decided the Instant Pot Smart has a place on my counter. It (and the other IP cookers) has parts and accessories available at reasonable prices, with the smart cooker I can view the status of my dinner from work (I have a box sitting next to the cooker at home that I can access from the internet, it talks to the smart cooker and relays the status). I can only hope more manufactures come out with more smart cooking devices! Great web site, it’s in my favorites!
