There’s one comment on the Facebook group that I see over and over… “Is it ok to start my pot and leave the room or the house?” Apparently people are a bit nervous about letting their Instant Pots run and not being around to check on them just to make sure everything is working properly. Well guys, Instant Pot heard all of you and paid attention. Problem solved! Just get yourself an Instant Pot Smart Wifi, download the app, pair your phone to your pot (yeah, that’s the cool part), and you’ll be able to see, monitor, and modify exactly what your Instant Pot is doing! Pretty darn awesome. But it’s so much more than that.

Two questions: 1. "No matter where you are" -- can we be outside Wi-Fi range (say at work)? 2. Can we create our own recipes with sequence of actions?

Thanks for the great write up!

Good questions, Sam. Yes, absolutely! That's the whole point of having your pot connected to your wifi in your home. Then, no matter where you are, you can see and control what's going on directly from the app on your phone, as long as you have cell service or wifi wherever you are. So if you get cell service at work or if your phone is connected to your work wifi, then definitely you can access your pot's information on your app on your phone (as long as your pot is connected to your own wifi at home and plugged in.) Regarding creating your own recipe with a "scripted" action on the WIFI pot, I don't think they have that capability yet, but it's a great idea! I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions.

Where can I buy in Italy the Instant Pot 6qt Smart wifi?

If I purchase it from the USA, I'm charged a hefty export/import duty.

Hi Sarah! That's a good question. Unfortunately, for now, the Instant Pot Smart WIFI is only available in the U.S., so I can't help you there. Hopefully you'll have access to one soon! Happy holidays! Also, even if you ordered it from the U.S. I don't think the voltage is set up for European use. Just keep your eyes open for a 220V on
