I recommend 6qt vs 3, and Duo vs. Ultra
September 9, 2018
I love the instant pot pressure cooker! However I would like to make 2 points that may help others.
- First, I was hoping a 3 qt mini would be enough for me (single guy). I can tell you, while it being OK, I outgrew it on the first day. I believe 6 qt is the way to go, even for a single person. It isn't just about the amount of food you make. You can do so much more with it. No comparison!
- Second, the ultra does not really have any functional differences from the DUO model, apart from different interface. 10 in 1 - is just marketing. I bought a 6 qt DUO, and let me tell you - it is way more convenient to use, since you have buttons instead of a pesky dial, and the venting mechanism is much more robust. The Ultra looks better though. But it comes at the cost of user friendliness and higher price.
I am returning my 3qt Ultra and keeping the 6qt DUO. I love it so much more!!
