Instant Brands is adding three new products to its benchtop appliance portfolio including two multi-cookers and a slow cooker, designed to make cooking faster and easier.

The Instant Pot Rio 5.7L Multi-Cooker (RRP $249) offers seven cooking functions and four customizable pre-sets. While it is large enough for up to six servings, the slim design easily fits on the countertop. The easy release switch is designed for simple and fast steam release and when cooking is done, the pressure cook lid and stainless steel cooking pot are dishwasher safe for fuss-free clean-up.

The Instant Pot Rio 7.1L Wide Multi-Cooker (RRP $349) delivers the same features of the Instant Pot Rio but with a wide inner cooking pot and more cooking area than a 30cm fry pan.

The searing surface is 35% larger than a leading 8L multi-cooker to cook large quantities of food from a 2.3kg chicken to three racks of ribs or more. The shorter yet wider pot with durable stainless steel and a heavy, tri-ply bottom delivers superior results and better visibility.

In addition to 13 smart cooking programs, a guided cooking indicator monitors progress and an anti-spin pot makes stirring, sautéing and browning easier.

The Instant Superior 7.1L Slow Cooker (RRP $179) offers four functions – slow cook, steam, saute/sear and keep warm. It can cook up to 10 portions with the convenience of customisable time and temperature controls.
