A warning today to those who have an Instant Pot in their household.
The company that makes the popular multicooker is warning customers through a Facebook post that some models are prone to overheating and melting and that they have received a small number of reports that its “Gem 65 8 in 1 multicooker has had some overheating problems which has caused melting on the pot’s underside.
The company says it believes only models with certain batch codes are affected, namely: 1728, 1730, 1731, 1734, and 1746.
The batch code can be found on the underside of the Instant pot at the bottom right of the silver label—it is a four digit number.
If you have an affected model, you are asked to immediately stop using it.
