Instant Brands, the Canadian company that makes the category-defining Instant Pot multifunction pressure cookers, announced the launch of ten new small kitchen appliances. The announcement includes two new Instant Pot multicookers and a variety of food preparation devices, including Instant Vortex Air Fryers, Instant Ace Cooking and Beverage Blenders, Instant Zest Rice and Grain Cookers, and Instant Omni Toaster Ovens.
Several of the new kitchen appliances were available in limited distribution earlier, but now the full lineup is released for sale at major merchants online and nationwide, including Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and more. Multi-functionality and space-saving design are characteristics common to the entire Instant line.
Instant Pot multicookers
The 7-in-1 Instant Pot Duo Nova has 14 smart programs for meals such as stews, chili, poultry, rice, and yogurt. The Duo Nova is available in 3-quart, 6-quart, 8-quart, and 10-quart versions.
The new Instant Pot 6-quart Duo Evo Plus 10-in-1 multicooker can ferment and pasteurize in addition to the more familiar list of cooking functions. The Duo Evo Plus, also available in an 8-quart size, has a new inner pot that can be used to saute food on a stove top.
Instant Vortex Air Fryers
You can cook a 4-pound chicken or four pounds of French fries in the Instant Vortex Air Fryer’s 6-quart container. This 4-in-1 cooker can bake, roast, reheat, and air fry.
The Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer Oven is a 10-quart, 7-in-1 air fryer with 14 pre-set cooking programs. This unit can air fry, roast, bake, broil, dehydrate, reheat, and rotisserie-cook food. Accessories include a rotisserie spit, a drip pan, and two cooking trays.
Instant Ace Cooking and Beverage Blenders
Are you ready for blenders that can cook food while the chop, cut, and blend it? The Instant Ace Nova Cooking and Beverage Blender
The 10-speed Instant Ace Nova Blender has a concealed heating element and eight hardened stainless steel blades. Cook your food after blending and the Ace will keep it warm for two hours.
The 54-ounce professional glass pitcher with the Instant Ace Plus Cooking and Cooling Blender has an 800-watt heating element for making chunky soups, rice, and other hot dishes. Four hot blender programs and four cold blender programs are one-touch easy.

The 20-cup Instant Zest Plus Rice and Grain Cooker isn’t just far larger than the 8-cup model above. The Zest Plus can steam, saute, and slow cook, plus it has pre-programmed settings for cooking a wider variety of rice and grains.
