Instant Pot has become the go-to kitchen appliance for busy families.
The pressure cooker allows you to cook delicious meals at home without having to spend hours in the kitchen.

You can use the Instant Pot to make soups, stews, casseroles, rice dishes, pasta, beans, meatloaf, and even desserts.

Instant Pot Turn Off Keep Warm Function
If you turn off the Instant Pot while keeping warm function is still active, the food will continue to cook after the Instant Pot turns off. To stop this from happening, you need to press cancel button and then unplug the power cord.
The keep warm function keeps the cooked food warm until you are ready to serve it. It is useful if you are not planning to eat immediately.
Is it safe?
Yes, it is safe to use. But remember to turn off the power switch after using the keep warm function.
If you use the keep warm function, the appliance will continue to run until the temperature reaches 100 degrees Fahrenheit 38 degrees Celsius. This is because the oven keeps the food warm while it cooks. It is important to note that if you leave the oven door open, the food will cool down quickly. So, it is recommended that you put your food into the oven immediately after taking it out of the keep warm mode.
What foods work best on “keep warm”?
Foods that are cooked in the oven but not served right away such as pizza, bread, cookies, cake, and lasagna work well on the keep warm setting. Foods that are baked in the oven and served hot such as meatballs, burgers, and sandwiches work well on the keep warmer setting.
What foods don’t work so well?
Cookies, pies, and other baked goods are usually best left alone on the keep warm setting because they tend to dry out quickly.
