A quick look at 10 Quart Instant Pot Duo Nova
The Duo Nova 10 quart is the largest Instant Pot available and only model available at this size currently. It was released in early September 2019 and is available to buy online.
If you didn’t realize the 10 quart was an option, it’s completely understandable. It was also released separately from the rest of the Duo Nova model line. And it was originally listed separately the 3, 6, and 8 quart pots. You needed to know to look for it.
The 7 Kitchen Appliances combined in one
All Instant Pots combine multiple kitchen appliances into one, the Instant Pot Duo Nova 10 Quart does the same.

- Rice Cooker
- Slow Cooker
- Yogurt Maker
The 13 included Smart Programs
This 10 quart model has the same 13 smart programs as the rest of the Duo Nova series including:

* The Yogurt smart program has a pasteurizing feature when you choose “More”. The Yogurt Smart Program will pasteurize milk. Be sure to check the temperature of the heated milk to ensure it reaches the proper temperature.
