IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
The removable inner pot can be extremely heavy when
full of ingredients. Care should be taken when lifting the inner pot from
the multicooker base to avoid burn injury.
• Extreme caution must be used when the inner pot contains hot food,
hot oil or other hot liquids.
• Do not move the appliance while it is in use and use extreme caution
when disposing of hot grease.
08 Overfilling may cause a risk of clogging the steam release pipe and
developing excess pressure.
• DO NOT fill over the Max PC Fill line as indicated on the inner pot.
• DO NOT fill the inner pot over the Half Fill line (as indicated on the inner
pot) when cooking foods that expand during cooking such as rice or
dried vegetables.
09
This appliance cooks under pressure. Any pressure in the
appliance can be hazardous. Allow the appliance to depressurize naturally
or release all excess pressure before opening. Inappropriate use may
result in burns, injury and/or property damage.
• Make sure the appliance is properly closed before operating. Refer to
Pressure control features: pressure cooking lid.
• DO NOT cover or obstruct the steam release valve and/or float valve
with cloth or other objects.
• DO NOT attempt to open the appliance until it has depressurized, and all
internal pressure has been released. Attempting to open the appliance
while it is still pressurized may lead to sudden release of hot contents
and may cause burns or other injuries.
• DO NOT place your face, hands or exposed skin over the steam release
valve or float valve when the appliance is in operation or has residual
pressure.
• DO NOT lean over the appliance when removing the lid, as heat and
steam escape when the lid is removed.

Initial set up (It won’t bite!)
You — yes, you — can do this!
“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure.
In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.”
– Julia Child
01 Pull that Instant Pot Pro out of the box!
02 Remove the packaging material and accessories from in and around the multicooker
and make sure all the parts are accounted for. See Product, parts and accessories for a
full parts breakdown.
Make sure to check under the inner pot!
03 Wash the inner pot in a dishwasher or with hot water and dish soap. Rinse it well with
warm, clear water and use a soft, dry cloth to thoroughly dry the outside of the inner pot.
04 Wipe the heating element with a soft, dry cloth to make sure there are no stray
packaging particles left in the multicooker base.
Don’t remove the safety warning stickers from the lid (unless specified on the sticker!) or
the labels from the back of the multicooker base.
05 You may be tempted to put the Pro on your stovetop — but don’t do it! Place the
multicooker base on a stable, level surface, away from combustible material and external
heat sources.

Pressure cooking 101
Pressure cooking uses steam to raise the boiling point of water above 100ºC / 212ºF.
These high temperatures allow you to cook some foods way faster than normal.

• Natural Release (NR or NPR)
• Quick Release (QR or QPR)
• Timed Natural Release

instantpot.com | 15

Releasing pressure
Natural Release (NR or NPR)
Cooking stops gradually. As the temperature within the multicooker drops, the Instant Pot
Pro depressurizes naturally over time.
What to do
After cooking finishes, leave
the quick release switch in the
Seal position until the float
valve drops into the lid.

What to expect
Your meal continues to cook even after the Smart
Program ends.
Instant Tip: This is called “carryover cooking” or “resting”, and
it’s great for large cuts of meat.

The depressurization time may vary based upon the
volume, type and temperature of food and liquid.
Unless you use QuickCool™ technology, NR can take
up to 40 minutes with some dishes, so plan ahead —
it’s well worth the wait!

See QuickCool to find out how to naturally release
pressure faster than ever before!

NOTICE
Use NR to depressurize the multicooker after cooking high-starch foods (like
soups, stews, chilis, pasta, oatmeal and congee) or after cooking foods that
expand when cooked (like beans and grains).
Quick Release (QR or QPR)
Stops cooking quickly and prevents overcooking. Perfect for quick-cooking vegetables and
delicate seafood!
What to do
Move the quick release switch from Seal to
Vent and wait until the float valve drops
into the lid.

What to expect

When the steam release cover is installed
properly, you’ll hear a muffled hiss as
steam hits the cover and disperses.
If the cover is not installed properly, a loud
jet of steam will eject through the top of
the steam release valve.

Releasing pressure
NOTICE
Do not use QR when cooking fatty, oily, thick or high-starch foods (e.g., stews,
chilis, pasta and congee) or when cooking foods that expand when cooked
(e.g., beans and grains).
Timed Natural Release
The carryover cooking continues for a specific amount of time, then stops quickly when you
release the remaining pressure. Perfect for cooking rice and grains.
What to do
Leave the quick release
switch in the Seal position
for a few minutes (according
to your recipe) then move it
from Seal to Vent and wait
until the float valve drops into
the lid.

What to expect
When the steam release cover is installed properly,
you’ll hear a muffled hiss as steam hits the cover
and disperses.
If the cover is not installed properly, a loud jet of steam
will eject through the top of the steam release valve.
The temperature within the multicooker drops, so the steam
release may not be as powerful as a normal QR.

If you see a lot of spatter while releasing pressure, move the quick release switch back
from Vent to Seal, and wait a few minutes before trying to release pressure again. If spatter
continues, use NR to safely release the remaining pressure.

Pressure cooking lid
What we love about it

What you should know about it

When you close the lid (over the handles
on the new inner pot!), it automatically
sets to Seal for seriously easy pressure
cooking.

The lid is removable during non-pressure
cooking so you can taste-test as you go.

The lid handle is comfortable to use
whether you’re left or right-handed,
and, stands up in the multicooker base!
When it’s plugged in, the Pro plays a little
jingle when you open and close the lid. 🙂

When pressure cooking, the lid only
locks into place once the multicooker
has pressurized. Try not to remove the
lid unnecessarily!

Removing the lid

Closing the lid

01 Grip the lid handle and turn it counterclockwise to align the symbol on the
lid with the symbol on the rim of the
multicooker base .

01 Align the symbol on the lid with the
symbol on the multicooker base ,
then lower the lid onto the track.

02 Lift the lid up and off the multicooker
base towards your body.

02 Turn the lid clockwise until the symbol
on the lid aligns with the middle of
the control panel.

Pressure control features
QuickCool™
For the fastest Natural Release after pressure cooking, use the QuickCool tray*.
What we love about it
It’s a huge timer saver — you can release
pressure naturally up to 50% faster!

What you should know about it
The metal portion of the lid gets
extremely hot, so don’t remove the
protective cover unless you’re using
QuickCool.

To use the QuickCool tray, fill it with ice or water and freeze it. Once frozen, remove the
protective cover from the pressure cooking lid, and position the QuickCool tray on the
exposed metal of the lid.
When the float valve drops into the lid, remove the QuickCool tray, discard the water and
open the lid. Use caution when removing the tray as some or all of the ice may have melted.
*QuickCool tray sold separately at instantbrands.com/product/instant-pot/accessories.

CAUTION
The lid will be hot during and after cooking. Do not touch the exposed metal with
bare skin to avoid injury.

Quick release switch
The quick release switch controls the steam release valve — the part that releases pressure.

What we love about it

What you should know about it

It’s super easy to use, and keeps our
hands far away from the steam when the
multicooker is releasing pressure!

It automatically sets to Seal when you
close the lid, so make sure to move it to
Vent when you’re not pressure cooking.

Steam release valve

Steam release pipe

What we love about it
When the valve is venting,
the steam release cover
disperses the steam, so the
quick release of pressure is
soft and gentle.

What you should know about it
When releasing pressure, steam travels up from the
inner pot, through the steam release pipe and out from
the top of the steam release valve — so it’s important to
keep the area clean and clear.
The steam release valve sits loosely on the steam
release pipe.

WARNING
Do not cover or block the steam release assembly in any way to avoid injury
and/or property damage.
instantpot.com | 25

Pressure control features
Anti-block shield
The anti-block shield prevents food particles from coming up
through the steam release pipe, which assists with pressure
regulation.
The anti-block shield is integral to product safety and necessary for
pressure cooking, so it must be installed before use.

Sealing ring
When the pressure cooking lid is closed, the sealing ring creates
an air-tight seal between the lid and the inner pot.
The sealing ring must be installed before use.
Only one sealing ring should be installed in the lid
at a time.
Instant Tip: Silicone is porous, so it absorbs strong aromas
and certain flavors. Keep extra sealing rings on hand to limit
the transfer of those aromas and flavors between dishes. Visit
our store to start color coding your cooking!

CAUTION
Always check for cuts, deformation and correct installation before cooking,
as sealing rings stretch over time with normal use. If you notice stretching,
deformation, or damage to your sealing ring, DO NOT use it.
Replace the sealing ring every 12 to 18 months or sooner, and only use
authorized Instant Pot sealing rings.
Failure to follow these instructions may cause food to discharge, which may lead
to personal injury or property damage.
26 | [email protected] | 1-800-828-7280

Pressure control features
Float valve
The float valve lets you know when there is pressure in the multicooker (pressurized) or not
(depressurized). It appears in 2 positions:

Pressurized
The float valve has visibly popped
up above the surface of the lid.

Depressurized
The float valve has descended,
and the top is flush with the lid or below.

The float valve and silicone cap work together to seal in pressurized steam. These parts
must be installed before use. Do not attempt to operate the Instant Pot without the float
valve properly installed. Do not touch the float valve during use.

DANGER
DO NOT attempt to remove the lid while the float valve is up and NEVER
attempt to force the lid open. Contents are under extreme pressure. Float
valve must be down before attempting to remove the lid. Failure to follow these
instructions may result in serious personal injury and/or property damage.

Cooking
The Instant Pot Pro is amazingly versatile in the kitchen. No matter what kind of cooking you
want to do, the Pro has you covered.

CAUTION
Always inspect the lid and inner pot carefully to make sure they are clean and in
good working condition before use.
• To avoid personal injury or damage to the appliance, replace the inner pot if it is
dented, deformed or damaged.
• Use only authorized Instant Pot inner pots made for this model when cooking.
Always make sure the heating element is clean and dry before inserting the inner
pot into the multicooker base.

Cooking
Pressure Cook and Rice
Jump start magic! These programs use pressurized steam to cook food quickly, evenly, and
deeply, for delicious results every time!
For the best pressure cooking results, always follow an authorized Instant Pot recipe or our
tried, tested and true pressure cooking timetables which feature grain-to-water ratios for
making a variety of rice and grains.
Choose from 2 pressure levels, depending on the Smart Program.
Pressure level

Suggested use

Notes

Low 5.8 – 7.2 psi
(30 – 50 kPa)

Fish and seafood, soft vegetables and rice.
Also for canning of high-acid foods.

High 10.2 – 11.6 psi
(70 – 90 kPa)

Eggs, meat, poultry, root vegetables, oats,
beans, grains, bone broth, stew, chili.

When pressure cooking,
the pressure level
controls the cooking
temperature, so a
higher pressure results
in a higher cooking
temperature.

Pressure cooking liquids should be water-based, such as broth, stock, soup or juice.
If using canned, condensed or cream-based soup, add liquid as directed below.
Instant pot size

Minimum liquid for pressure cooking*

6 Quarts / 5.7 Litres

1 ½ cups (375 mL / ~12 oz)

8 Quarts / 7.6 Litres

2 cups (500 mL / ~16 oz)
*Unless otherwise specified in recipe.

Instant Tip: Use the steam rack to heat food evenly, prevent nutrients from leeching into
the cooking liquid, allow oil and grease to drip off the food, and, prevent food from
scorching the bottom of the inner pot.

CAUTION
To avoid scorching or scalding injury, be cautious when pressure cooking with
more than 1/4 cup (~2 oz / 60 mL) oil, oil-based sauces, condensed cream-based
soups, and thick sauces. Add suitable liquid to thin sauces. Avoid recipes that call
for more than 1/4 cup (~2 oz / 60 mL) of oil or fat content.

Cooking
Deglazing
Sautéing meat and vegetables before pressure cooking is the perfect way to boost
flavors, as sugars caramelize from the high heat of the Sauté Smart Program. Deglazing
the inner pot lets you unlock those flavors in amazing sauces, gravies and more.
To deglaze, remove food items from the inner pot and add a thin liquid, like water, broth
or wine to the hot surface. Use a wooden or silicone scraper to list up any food stuck to
the bottom of the inner pot and stir it into the liquid.

WARNING
The Sauté Smart Program reaches high temperatures. If left unmonitored, food
may burn on this setting. DO NOT use a lid and DO NOT leave the multicooker
unattended while using Sauté.

Cooking
Reverse searing
Searing your meat after slow and precise cooking is the easiest way to boost those
already delicious flavors through the roof without overcooking. Try reverse searing
for tender, juicy meat with a beautiful, burnished crust.
01 After sous vide cooking, remove the meat from the cooking pouch and gently pat it
dry to remove as much moisture from the exterior of the meat.
02 Use the Sauté program set to High to give it a good sear, or use a hot cast iron pan,
browning torch, or a grill — anything hot to lock in that moisture!
In general, after sautéing, steaks need to rest to allow the internal temperature
to even out. However, with sous vide cooking, the internal temperature is already
consistent. So there’s no need to rest—you can serve your steak immediately.

Ingredients and Seasonings
• Salt goes a long way when it has nowhere to go, so it’s better to use a little less than
you normally would, especially with meats, poultry, and fish. If you find it needs more
after cooking, it’s easy to salt to taste.
• Use high quality, fresh ingredients when cooking sous vide to ensure the best
possible flavor.
• Use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. Garlic powder can become bitter when
cooked sous vide. Fresh garlic will give you the best results.

Cooking
Yogurt
Tips for yogurt making
• The thicker the milk, the thicker the yogurt!
• For even thicker yogurt, pasteurize your milk twice before fermenting.
• For the thickest yogurt, use a cheesecloth to strain out the liquid whey, and get rich
Greek-style yogurt.
• The longer you ferment your milk, the tangier the yogurt will be.
• Cool your fresh yogurt, then put it in the fridge (covered) for 12 to 24 hours to allow
the flavors to develop.
• Honey, nuts, seeds, and fresh fruit are perfect toppers for your homemade yogurt!
Tips for yogurt making
Yogurt cups are a convenient way to portion out yogurt servings.
01 After Step 2: Add starter culture, carefully pour the milk into your yogurt cups and
seal them tightly.
02 Place the steam rack on the bottom of the inner pot.
03 Position the yogurt cups on the rack and add water to the inner pot until the cups are
immersed halfway.
04 Follow the steps in Step 3: Ferment yogurt normally.

Lid and parts







Steam release valve
Steam release cover
Anti-block shield
Sealing ring
Float valve
Silicone cap
QuickCool cover
Condensation collector

• With the steam release valve and anti-block shield removed, clean the interior of
the steam release pipe with a pipe cleaner to prevent clogging.
• To drain water from the lid after dishwashing, grasp the lid handle and hold the
lid vertically over a sink, then turn it 360°— like turning a steering wheel.
• After cleaning and draining, store the lid upside down on the multicooker base
to allow it to air dry completely.
• Store sealing rings in a well-ventilated area to decrease residual odor of flavorful
meals. To eliminate odors, add 1 cup (250 mL / ~8 oz) water and 1 cup
(250 mL / ~8 oz) white vinegar to the inner pot, then run Pressure Cook for
5 to 10 minutes and QR pressure.
• Check the condensation collector after each use and empty and clean it as
needed. Do not allow food or moisture to sit in the condensation collector,
as harmful bacteria may result.
Dishwasher safe.

Inner pot

• Acute hard water staining (rainbow, bluish or white discoloration) may require
scrubbing with a sponge dampened with vinegar or a nonabrasive cleanser like
Bar Keeper’s Friend.
• For tough or burned food residue, add boiling water and dish soap to the inner
pot and let it sit for a few hours for easy cleaning.
• Make sure all exterior surfaces are dry before placing the inner pot in the
multicooker base.
Wipe only.

Power cord

• Use a barely damp cloth to remove particles from the cord.
• Wrap it around the multicooker base and tuck the end into the cord holder.
Wipe only.

Multicooker base

• Wipe the inside of the outer pot as well as the condensation rim with a barely
damp cloth. Allow them to dry completely before inserting the inner pot.
• Clean the multicooker base and control panel with a soft, barely damp cloth
or sponge.

Some discoloration may occur after machine washing, but this will not affect the multicooker’s safety or performance.
