No other Instant Pot have models have been included in this warning, at this time. Check the label before firing it up.

To check your product's batchcode, locate the silver label on the bottom of the cooker.

The company, on a Facebook page, told customers who may have purchased that particular line with batch codes 1728, 1730, 1731, 1734, and 1746 to stop using the device immediately.

Comments on the Facebook post from upset customers indicate the company knew about the melting problem prior to sharing it publicly.

The company has asked consumers to check the code at bottom of their pots to see if they will be affected.

Instant Pot says that only certain Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicookers are affected by the overheating issue.

Rather, the company has received reports from users of its Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicooker that their units have overheated. It was a few weeks, weeks ago. Commenting on the post has been disabled.

For anxiety-ridden pressure-cooker owners, Instant Pot has become the welcomed hero of modern day electric set-and-forget slow cookers.
