Instant Pot Company recalls multicookers because they might melt — RECALL ALERT

Instant Pot Company recalls multicookers because they might melt — RECALL ALERT

Check the label before firing it up.

Instant Pot reports on its Facebook page that it has received a "small number of reports" about the overheating, that resulted in "localized melting damage to the underside of the product". You find the batchcode on bottom, right-hand corner of the silver label on the underside of the product.

If so, have you noticed any issues with overheating and melting? They warned customers to "immediately stop use of the product", according to their post.

Second, there is no official recall (yet) on the affected appliance, a multicooker that does not have a pressure-cooking function (it does, however, have settings for baking, steaming, roasting and slow-cooking, among others).

Bjoergen extends Winter Olympic medal record
She had earlier won gold in the 4x5km relay, silver 7.5km + 7.5km Skiathlon, and bronze medals in team sprint free and 10km free. It was the last event at PyeongChang 2018 , which will draw to a conclusion with a closing ceremony later Sunday.

Before making tonight's delicious pork tenderloin dinner with your do-anything Instant Pot, check the unit before plugging it in.

If you have a Instant Pot multicooker in your home, you may want to check to see if it is faulty.

But some customers complained in the comments that the issue had been prevalent for some time already.

Instant Pot said that it is working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for the replacement of the cookers. "There are countless people who have been waiting MONTHS since receiving this message as an email", Raina Lincicum wrote. "If this turns out to be a safety defect, Instant Pot should call it one, and carry out a recall".
