Those are annoying - and we won't subject you to those, either. When the pack was introducing a new pressure cooker model every two to five years, Instant Pot was introducing them every 18 months.
The Ultra lets you choose to delay cooking anywhere from 10 minutes to 24 hours – don’t know when the latter would come in use but it’s an option.
Also, this panel lets you choose whether you want “keep warm” to kick-in at the end of cooking or not.
Instant Pot Ultra is due to be released in the middle of May 2017 watch this amazon listing for details.
It is already shipping from Sur La Table (affiliate link, thank you for your support!
It’s supposed to distance the cook from the act of actually spinning the valve open – but honestly, the button is still right next to the valve so take this new feature with a grain of salt (because we’ve seen this button much further away from the valve elsewhere).
