Instant Pot recalls multicooker that poses fire hazard but #ThisisnotThisisUs

Multicookers sold exclusively at Walmart recalled due to fire hazard

Instant Pot, the cult-favorite brand of multi-cookers, announced a recall of more than 100,000 appliances due to fire hazard risks.

Double Insight, manufacturer of the Instant Pot, the country's most popular pressure cooker, has issued a voluntary recall for its Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicooker, citing "customer reports of the product overheating, resulting in localized damage to the underside of the product". You can find the batch code on the underside of the device.

Consumers who purchased an affected multicooker should stop using it immediately and return it to Walmart for a free replacement.

The recall comes barely a week after Consumer Reports first reported that Instant Pot had asked owners of the Gem multi-cookers to stop using them while the company worked out a remedy. The models are sold exclusively at Walmart, according to Instant Pot's Facebook post.
