Instant Pot Multicookers At Risk Of Melting, Company Warns

Instant Pot Multicookers At Risk Of Melting, Company Warns

According to Consumer Reports, Instant Pot is telling owners of its product Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicooker to stop using it after reports that some of those products have overheated.

They say that can cause "localized melting damage to the underside of the product".

They added that customers will get instructions on how to get a replacement. "There are countless people who have been waiting MONTHS since receiving this message as an email", Raina Lincicum commented on the Facebook post, which has since disabled comments.

To find the batch code on your model, look for a four-digit number on the silver label on the underside of your multicooker.

Instant Pot said that the only models of the Gem affected were those from five batches, marked with the batch codes 1728, 1730, 1731, 1734 and 1746.

"It's not a few customers tho".




Now, intelligent pressure cooker maker Instant Pot is reacting so that its appliances won't end up having the same mortal effect.

"Now you are posting the same form letter you send when anyone asks what the next step is? Stop resetting the clock and make this right".

The Gem 65 8-in-1, which are multi-tool devices that can slow cook, pressure cook, bake, steam, and more, are extremely popular.

Designed by a group of former Nortel employees in Ottawa, Instant Pot launched its first cookers in 2010. "Whether or not the plastic is melting, this is a process that requires care and caution".

Customers can also contact the company at 1-800-828-7280.
