Instant Pot Recall

I just opened an email from my good friend Jan that said Instant Pots are being recalled. Since I absolutely adore my Instant Pot, I freaked! In addition, my daughter in law Wendy just bought one yesterday and used it for the first time!

I was able to stop worrying- my Instant Pot is Safe

I immediately googled it and found out that the recall is not for the Instant Pot that most people are using and loving. 

The recall is for a product that is made exclusively for Walmart by the Instant Pot company. In fact, I believe it does not even have a pressure cooker feature. 

As of today, according to the NY Times article, The recall is only for the model called Gem- which 
which is not a pressure cooker at all- and is made exclusively for Walmart- it only roasts, stews, bakes, steams, saute's , cooks rice and warms- 

The five models of the Gem series that are being recalled of that appliance ( according to the NY Times article below)- is models 1728,1730,1731,1734,1746- you can check the bottom of the appliance and look for a silver label with the numbers.

    1. I know but you would have heard sooner or later.. I figured I'd set the record straight

  2. I love my instant pot already!! I can't wait to make your sweet potato spicy soup and black bean recipe!!!

  3. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your
    post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to
    do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let
    you know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Many thanks
