Instant Pot Duo Nova Review: Is the Pot Worth It?

4.5 rating

The Instant Pot Duo Nova is a beginner’s dream when it comes to high-performance Instant Pot multi-cookers. That is because the Duo Nova combines a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, food warmer, and yogurt maker all in one. 

You can choose from multiple sizes of the Instant Pot Duo Nova: Mini (3 quarts), 6 quarts, 8 quarts, and 10 quarts. I decided to purchase the most popular size, the 6 quart model of the Duo Nova. 

Instant Pot Duo Nova Features

Being that it is the most popular model, the 6-quart model can cook for up to six people at one time. If you live alone and only cook for yourself, you may be better off with the Mini size.

However, if you are on the fence about which model is best for you, I suggest the 6-quart. 

Duo Nova Cooks Healthy and Delicious Meals

Healthy and delicious does not come at a cost. For the Instant Pot Duo Nova, it features a sophisticated multiprocessor. What is multiprocessor? Well, it monitors and adjusts pressure.

It also monitors time and heats up to cook your food 70% faster than comparative models. That means that you will ger consistent yet delicious meals each time you use the Instant Pot Duo Nova. 

Instant Pot Duo Nova Smart Lid

What does a smart lid have to do with delicious food? Well, Duo Nova’s EasySeal lid automatically seals your Instant Pot for you.

The quick-release button is fast and safe as steam release works the way you work. As a bonus, you get an extra sealing ring with your Instant Pot Duo Nova.
