Instant Pot multicookers being voluntarily recalled due to fire hazard

Gem 65 8-in-1 multicooker

The company warned consumers about the problem last week, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued an official recall Thursday.

Instant Pot has recalled 104,000 Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicookers because they can overheat and melt on the underside, posing a fire hazard.

Over the past few months, 107 reports were filed to Consumer Reports about the particular model (which doesn't actually include a pressure-cooking function), involving instances of it getting too hot and warping after use. No injuries were reported. The product contains the batchcodes 1728, 1730, 1731, 1734 or 1746 printed on the rating label on the underside of the product. Walmart Offers Free Replacements Instant Pot's Gem 65 Multicooker is sold exclusively at Walmart, where consumers can go for a free replacement.

For clarification, the recall concerns Instant Pot's multicooker and not its wildly famous signature multi-tasking pressure cooker, which has become a cult kitchen appliance in recent years.




The unit at risk is the Gem 65 8-in-1 multicooker. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms, who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.
