I got a few questions about the Instant Pot Duo Plus, so I shot a quick unboxing video:
Video: Instant Pot Duo Plus Unboxing (6:11)

Questions I didn't cover in the video (that I can think of)
Q: Do I need the Duo Plus if I already own a Duo?
A: No. The two are remarkably similar. There are a few nice little touches:
- A fancy new display
- The new cooker remembers your settings for three different modes
- "Pressure Cook" mode replaces "Manual" mode
- Oh, and a bunch of new program modes - none of which I ever use. (I'm a Saute mode and Pressure Cook mode kind of guy)
- the ⅔ and ½ markings on the pot actually show you the pressure cooking max fill lines.
But, all in all, these are minor improvements to the Instant Pot Duo you already own. Now, if you're in love with pressure cooking, and want an excuse to buy a second Instant Pot...well...I own 6 different pressure cookers right now. I can't tell ANYONE not to buy another cooker.
Q: If I don't have a pressure cooker, should I get the Duo Plus or the Duo?
A: I'd go with the Plus. I always want the latest technology, even if it's a minor update. Now, as I write this, the old Duo is $20 cheaper. If the difference between $120 and $100 matters to you, and every dollar counts, get the older Duo - it's a great cooker. Either way, I think you'll love your new pressure cooker.
