Instant Pot says they have received multiple reports of their Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicooker overheating, causing the underside to melt.

The Canada-based company is asking customers to check for batchcodes 1728, 1730, 1731, 1734, and 1746 on the silver label on the underside of the product. "The batchcode is the 4-digit number located at the bottom right of the label", the Facebook post said.

If your Instant Pot is too hot it might be time to return what you've got.

The Facebook post from Instant Pot now only has a few comments from customers. Instant Pot indicates that they are working with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission regarding the safety of the appliance and will offer instructions for a replacement in the next few weeks. The mega-popular multi-use cooker that has become synonymous with the company is unaffected.

It's not uncommon for an increase in threats after such attacks, Young said. A message was to be sent to Rancho parents on Thursday evening, she said.

If you own a Gem 65 8-in-1 multicooker, you likely enjoy all the ways it helps you prepare food.

If you have further questions you can call the company's Customer Care line at 1-800-828-7290x2.

First - and a very big first: This has nothing to do with the company's pressure cookers, the whiz-bang, do-everything devices that have gained a cult following.
