6.33 Quart (or 25 Cup) Capacity

Instant Pot IP-LUX60 has the capacity of 6.33 quarts, which is about 25 cups. It is enough to feed 8 to 10 people assuming each person eats about 2 cups of cooked meal. Of course, most people use it for making meals to last for the week or even longer in the case of chicken or veggie stock. You can even freeze some of the meals or stocks in small container in the freezer for later use.

Heating Technology for IP-LUX60 Pressure Cooker

Applying the same principle of pressure cooking on a stove top, the electric pressure cooker has three components: 1)The inner pot or the cooking pot, 2) The electric heating system, and 3)The pressure/temperature sensors. The heating is monitored and controlled by the micro-processor upon receiving input from the temperature and pressure sensors.

Cooking profiles are built in the pressure cooker where cooking temperature, pressure and time duration are adjusted to develop different cooking “methods”. For example, simmering, braising, slow cooking, rick cooking, so on and so forth.

The other great feature with IP-LUX60 cooker is that it has a stainless steel inner cooking pot and a steamer made of this material. This is very helpful for those who are concerned about Teflon-coated cookware wondering what might be leaching into the cooked food.

Is It Easy to Use and Clean?

(Back to Top)

Unlike the traditional pressure cooker when the cooking is monitored by a person standing by the stove, this pressure cooker is programmed by a micro-chip. Optimal cooking pressure, temperature and time are combined each time.

To cook a meal, set the pressure release value to either “Ceiling” or “Vent” position. Put all the ingredients and seasoning into the inner pot. Close the lid until you hear a “beep” sound. Choose a menu setting on the control panel.

Cleaning is easier than a crockpot or a rice cooker. The inner pot and the steaming rack are made of the durable stainless steel. You can throw them in the dishwasher.
