Instant Pot recalled for fire hazard: popular cooking device can melt

Instant Pot has issued a voluntary recall of its Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicooker unit, following customer reports of overheating.

Multi-purpose cookware company Instant Pot has issued a recall following reports of one its products overheating and melting, according to a Thursday post from the company in the Instant Pot Community Facebook group.

Consumers may contact Double Insight toll-free at 888-891-1473 from 8:30 10 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and from 10 6 p.m. ET Saturday and Sunday or online at and click on "Product Recall" or visit for more information.

The unit at risk is the Gem 65 8-in-1 multicooker.

The Instant Pot model can be programmed for roasting, baking, cooking, stewing, slow-cooking or food warming.

It asks anyone who owns the appliance with the batch code 1728, 1730, 1731, 1734 or 1746 to stop using it. No injuries were reported. About 104,000 of the instant pots were sold between August 2017 and January 2018. It's still unclear why Instant Pot only released a public warning about the problem on February 18, 2018, if the company was sending out private warnings to individual customers months earlier.

According to the CPSC, there have been 107 reports of the multicookers overheating. The numbers are located on the rating label on the underside of the product. To report a unsafe product or a product-related injury go online to or call CPSC's Hotline at 800-638-2772 or teletypewriter at 301-595-7054 for the hearing impaired.
