Between a new blender, a slow cooker, and a collaboration with the Pioneer Woman, the folks at Instant Pot sure have been busy. And they have another new product coming out soon (hopefully in time for holiday gifting!): As of today, the Instant Pot Smart WiFi is now available for preorder on Amazon.
Preorder: 6-Quart Instant Pot Smart WiFi, $150
As its name implies, The Smart WiFi Instant Pot is equipped with WiFi and can be controlled with your iOS or Android device. That means you can make adjustments to the settings from another room, you can check in on the progress from anywhere, and you can receive and share alerts with your family.
Fun fact: The company is calling it the "first multi-use programmable pressure cooker that can now be controlled and monitored with your mobile devices."
The six-quart machine has a large display screen, will retail for $150, and works with an app featuring more than 750 pre-programmed recipes to help you get going. (Plus, we're told the app will have new recipes added on a DAILY basis.)
There are also two Delay Start timers, which allow you to postpone the machine to ensure that dinner will be ready when you are. And there's an automatic Keep Warm function to maintain the temperature of the meal until it's time to eat. Oh, and you can turn that function on or off — from your phone! — even after the meal is finished. Meaning: If you're running late, the machine has got you covered.
Off the top of our heads, there's just one more thing we wish it did: Instagrammed a pic of our food for us. At this rate, that must be something the company is working on, right?
Note: We actually have one in our possession and are working on testing it out. Be sure to check back soon for a full, detailed report on it!
What do you think? Is this new function something you'd use?
