Well, who would have thought the day would come when a kitchen pot could connect to Wi-Fi. Well, that day has come apparently and it has come by way of Instant Pot.
One of their top range models can connect to Wi-Fi. So which Instant Pot can connect to Wi-Fi? The Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi can connect to your Wi-Fi and you can then access it using an app on your phone.
That’s pretty cool, isn’t it? It sounds like something out of a futuristic Science Fiction movie but this is actually real life my fined and you can actually purchase it off Amazon and have it in your kitchen within a few short days.
That’s how real it is. So, what is the Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi and what exactly is it capable of doing?

It also has 13 one-touch programs. The Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi can connect to both Android and iPhone. It can also connect to Alexa as well.
So why in the world would you want a multi-cooker that connects to Wi-Fi? Well, there are a number of reasons why as you will find out in this article.
One of these reasons is because you are super techy and would love to have a cool gadget that you can show off to your friends.
It’s a good reason but not the best reason as you will see later. Instant Pot also has earlier models that connected via Bluetooth but these were limited to a specific radius from which you could control it.
If you left this radius, however, you would then lose control of your pot. With Wi-Fi, you are not limited to the immediate vicinity of your pot but you can access it from just about anywhere in the world really as long as there is an internet connection. How’s that for being high tech?
What Are the Benefits of Wi-Fi on Instant Pot?
The Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi, as mentioned before, comes with a mobile app that you can add your device to and it starts giving you notifications of what exactly is happening with your pot.
It even notifies you if you have burned your food. The app gives you the ability to control the pot as well which is pretty cool if you ask me.
You can leave your Instant Pot cooking then take your dog for a walk, go to the gym or even go to work and show off your Instant Pot app to your friends at work.
Besides being a way for you to control your Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi, the app also comes with Instant Pot recipes.
One of the coolest things about this feature is that the recipes come with instructions and pre-set and all you have to do is follow the directions that the app is giving you.
It actually gives you step by step instructions at intervals throughout the cooking process. It will choose which function to use and the time that it will take to cook the food. This is pretty amazing if you ask me.
Who Is This For?
If you a techie, then this is something that you want to have in your kitchen. It’s also made for the busy person who just wants to get home from work, load their Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi then take care of other stuff without necessarily having to watch over your pot all the time.
As a safety feature, the app will not allow you to release steam remotely. This is useful for cases where there might possibly be someone at home standing over the pot when you decide to release steam and it could result in serious injuries.
I mentioned earlier but you can also connect Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi with Amazon Alexa through the Alexa Skill app. Using Alexa Skill, you can control it using voice controls through Alexa.
As you can see, this baby comes with a lot of bells and whistles and that technology comes at a cost hence this is the most expensive Instant Pot on the market right now. If you are willing to spend on it, you will get an amazing product with all these amazing features.
