Default Is the Instant Pot safe?

Does anyone know if the Instant Pot is safe for use in a home with budgies?

I bought it after reading all the great reviews and all the descriptions referred to it as using stainless steel. Now that I have it, I see it uses a stainless steel inner pot (insert) that sits in the larger outer pot. The outer pot with the heating element appears to have a coating on it. It doesn't look like Teflon but not sure what it is.

Been searching online and contacted the manufacturer but haven't been able to confirm it was safe. Hoping someone here might have some insight.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

I'm not familiar with the product, but in looking at the information on-line I see there is both a toll-free number as well as contacts for both Support and Inquiries. It should not be difficult to find out if PTFE's are used in the product.

Instant Pot: Support Ticket System
Tel: 1800 828-7280

Support: [email protected]
Inquiry: [email protected]

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Thanks so much for the information - I'm excited to have found this group.

My husband had sent an email to the company and didn't get a response...so I will try using the support ticket and see if we have any better luck!

Just so you know, the actual Instant Pot brand is one of the only ones that has a stainless steel liner/ insert. Almost all the others are coated with nonstick material. We purchased the IP brand and have really enjoyed it.

Yes - thank you Leslie! We do have the Instant Pot name brand pot.

I'm 99% sure it is ok but just wasn't sure what that coating on the outer pot is. We still haven't been able to get a response from the manufacturer...have emailed, put in a support ticket, and called but haven't gotten any response.

I'm very glad to hear you have enjoyed it and haven't run into any problems. That makes me feel better that it probably is ok. Will post an update if we get a response from the manufacturer.

mnbirdiegirl- I am laughing at myself right now. I just reread your original post- I see that I didn't help you at all. I have no idea what I thought your actual question was when I responded- I see you actually have the IP!

Here is something more helpful-a review from a parrot owner who spoke to the inventor and confirmed the safety:
Instant Pot Is the Best Electric Pressure Cooker - Real Food - MOTHER EARTH NEWS

There were some other links, but that one helped me feel good about it.

Sorry I confirmed to you that the pot you already had was exactly what you stated it was

YES!! I bought one on Boxing Day, but did about two months of research before I bought mine [and I asked other bird owners on fb groups] before I bought it.

There is a sticker on the inside on the pot [remove the liner and look inside]. Remove that sticker, then do your water test in another room [we used the bathroom, window open] a few times until you know it's safe.

I did not remove the sticker and it let off a very "not so bird friendly" smell until I realized about the sticker. I removed it, and then there was no smell at all. I did cook my first few meals in the bathroom though [LOL] just to me safe, but since then I've used it in my kitchen 3-4 nights out of each week. My bird is located MAYBE 15 feet away from it.

We looooooove our instant pot. I don't have many "how did I ever live without this thing" items, but The IP is definitely one of them. lol

Excellent - Thank you so much for that tip Spiirt! I didn't see the sticker when I unpacked it, so I will look now.

Hadn't used it yet because I was still a bit nervous but we will be trying it this weekend now

Thank you so much!
