Although there are plenty of positive reviews, there are still things to consider before you buy. Some Amazon shoppers said that although it promises to cook food faster, they didn't necessarily notice a difference in cook time. 

Other shoppers have complained that six quarts isn't large enough to prepare enough food for a large family. 

Verdict

Amazon's latest Instant Post sale is great if you're looking to upgrade your current pressure cooker that boasts plenty of safety features. 

While shoppers have given the Instant Pot Max 6 Quart Multi-Use Electric Pressure Cooker an impressive star rating, this might not be best for a large family looking to prepare enough food with leftovers. However, if you're cooking for one or two people, this might be for you!
