Instant Pot 8Qt 7in1 Electric Pressure Cooker Unboxing
We introduced Instant Pot electric pressure cooker two years ago. Today we will introduce another model of instant pot pressure cooker
We are reviewing Instant Pot electric pressure cookers from the perspective of real consumers. Over the years, we have purchased several pressure cookers suitable for home use at our own expense, and of course, they are all more popular models. For example, the Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 we introduced before, our family bought 3 of the same model.
During Christmas in 2021, we bought another Instant Pot pressure cooker (if the owner of Instant Pot saw this, wouldn’t they thank us? LOL). The model is Instant Pot 80 EPC 8Qt 7in1 Multi-purpose Pressure Cooker Limited Edition (Note: EPC = Electric Pressure Cooker), the box states that this pressure cooker is only sold at Walmart.
Why did we buy Instant Pot 8Qt 7in1 Multi-purpose Pressure Cooker?
The original purpose that we purchase of this pressure cooker was simple: we needed an 8Qt electric pressure cooker so that we could place a larger capacity bowl or container to cook food. Also, we need a larger capacity to cook 2 different foods at the same time.
We can see from the package box that it is a 7-in-1 electric pressure cooker. Although it is only marked as a multi-cooker, but according to the buttons on its operation panel and its model name, we can see that it is actually a pressure cooker: EPC = Electric Pressure Cooker.
We opened the package box and it looked like the below from the top. We saw two instruction-like booklets:
Here's what the Instant Pot 8Qt 7in1 Multi-purpose Pressure Cooker looks like when we take it out of the box, it looks just like the Instant Pot Duo series we bought before, there is no particularly noticeable difference from the outside:
Below are the Float Valve and Steam release handle on the lid, which are similar to previous Instant Pot electric pressure cookers:
Here's what the lid looks like inside, and it looks the same as the lids of other Instant Pot electric pressure cookers:
Below is the photo we took after taking out the inner pot of this Instant Pot 8Qt 7in1 Multi-purpose Pressure Cooker. As you may have seen, The biggest difference of this multi-purpose pressure cooker and DUO series Instant Pot electric pressure cookers is the inner pot:
Main difference: Now we see the inner pot of this one is a non-stick pot, while the Duo series Instant Pot electric pressure cooker we purchased earlier has a stainless steel inner pot.
The inner pot of this non-stick pot is a ceramic-coated non-stick pot (Ceramic Coating). If the inner pot of the Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker 8Qt 7in1 is replaced with a stainless steel inner pot, then it is the same as the Duo series electric pot.
Below is the control panel of this pressure cooker. We can see that there are 18 buttons in total. This is also almost the same as the panel of the Duo series Instant Pot electric pressure cooker. Through these buttons, the user can complete various functions of the Instant Pot electric pressure cooker.
Let's take a closer look at the Float Valve and Steam release handle of the Instant Pot 8Qt 7in1 Multi-purpose Pressure Cooker:
The one below is the Condensation Collector, which collects water vapor like other pressure cookers.
