Notes from the Community

We bough an Ultra Mini around two months ago. It was instant love with the device. As a matter of fact, one week later we ordered a larger unit.Just recently we found that the front dialing button was stuck. I carefully removed it and found that it was bent out of shape in the portion that seats inside of the panel. It is easy to figure out that this could have happened because of the heat that the unit generates (button is made of plastic).I contacted Instant Pot customer service asking if this was covered by warranty, or if not, how could I purchase a replacement. This is their reply:Hello Edmundo,Thank you for getting that information to us, it is appreciated.This piece is not sold separately as the base comes as one full unit. This is not something that is covered under warranty. With that said we can offer you our loyalty price on a new Ultra mini cooker base for $65.95 USD.Please let us know if you would like to move forward.I am very disappointed with this reply. I am not willing to buy a whole unit just to replace a small cheap button. I am sure that they have thousands of these buttons at their warehouse. The button is replaceable, you can pull it out and push it back in. It is not a fixed part of the base unit. I am disappointed because this company can not offer me a simple solution for a small problem.The Ultra Mini is an excellent product. I have solved the button problem by putting it back in and not pushing it all the way in. Works perfectly until I can find a similar button somewhere. It is not a big issue. What is a big issue is the poor customer service attitude of this company.Best regards,Edmundo Caution—if you purchase the Ultra Instant Pot, please be aware that you must learn how to use the buttons because all the recipes for Instant Pots are geared toward the standard-not the Ultra-and the buttons on the Ultra are all different from the standard. It took me awhile to figure this out and I am still learning. I love my Ultra IP but the company did not do a good job of explaining the differences in the buttons—I had to search by googling and reading lots of blogs. Not being new to pressure cooking first thing I can say is WOW. I have to confess that I had a stove top pressure cooker a long time ago and have not used one in a while. I have been out of the loop on the Instant Pot electric pressure cookers too which is a blessing in that I followed my instincts and bought the Ultra without making the mistake of trying to save a few bucks for the Duo series.Like going to the car dealer for a new car, think of the Instant Pot line of cookers the same way., The Lux is the base model, the Duo is the model up from the base and the Duo Plus two models up from the base and the Ultra is the fully loaded model. Just like the car dealer, - more features means more money. With a street price of $149.00 for the Ultra, you can be patient and find them on sale from time to time. However, in any case $149.00 is a good price for what this cooker can do for you. If you use this cooker you will make up the cost of in saving on not eating out as much. The food you can cook is that good.I have been cooking in this Instant Pot every day since I received it; sometimes twice a day. I have also made sure to make things that require me to use more than the manual setting that can be created under Pressure Cook or Ultra. Here are my Pros and Cons.Pros: LCD display - one of the big things I hear in the discussion groups is I pushed the button and it says ON, but I dont know what is happening. The Ultra has a cooking graph that displays the progress through the preheat, cooking and warming phases so you know right where you are in the process. The LCD display is miles ahead of any of the control panels on any other model offered by Instant Pot. Venting, Quick release and the Pressure Regulator are improved. The vent/regulator now is controlled by a separate button - the Quick Release button, Push the button into the locking position and it pops the Vent up to release the pressure, turn the quick release knob and unlock the Vent so it drops back down and stops the pressure from releasing. Ultra Program You can set the exact Temp, as low as 104 degree and as high as 208 degrees. Set your Altitude and the programing on the Ultra will make the adjustments. Aesthetics - It is much more attractive with the LCD panel than the other modelsCons: Sealing ring in lid (silicone) picks up all the cooking smells and this ring stinks. The only solution I found to help take the cooking smell out of the silicone is to run the silicone ring through the dishwasher on the top rack laid flat. This seems to be a on going complaint from many Instant Pot owners The Manual is not very detailed. The Water Test as know by users is in the manual as Initial Test Run on page 14. The instructions for the Initial Test Run are incomplete. After instructing to rotate the dial to steam and set the time for two minutes, the manual forgets to tell the user to press the start button next. While the explanations under numbers 6,7 and 8 are important for Pressure Cooking, it is not clear to the user that those are not part of the Initial Test. Since users have adopted the lingo Water Test; Instant Pot would be better off changing the future manuals to instruct the Water Test. A little more information on the preset programing. The manual talks about making Yogurt, a few more pages like that on the other functions would be helpful.This really is not a con, but just part of pressure cooking. Pressure cookers are moist cookers so any crispy dish you desired has to be done outside the Instant Pot, so for example Lasagna would be finished under the broiler to get that baked finish. Chicken skin does not come out the same as if it was roasted in the over. For all the other things you can do with your Instant Pot, these things are not a big deal.Here are some of the items I have prepared with my Instant Pot Ultra and the setting used.Pressure Cook - Apple Sauce, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Macaroni and Cheese, Slumgullion/ American GoulashSoup Broth - Split Pea Soup using dry split peasMeat/Stew - Crack Chicken, Honey Garlic Chicken, Cranberry Brisket, Dr Pepper Ribs, Beef Bourguignon, BratwurstBean/Chili - Black Beans and Smoked Turkey SausageSteam - Sweet PotatoSauté - vegetables and meat for dishes abovePorridge - Steel Cut OatsCake - New York Cheese Cake, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Giant PancakeEgg - Hard Boiled EggsYogurt - Greek Yogurt with 2% milkUltra - Sous Vide Tuna Steaks, Tempered Chocolate for candy making.Many people try to figure out which model is the one for them. If you are a cook or like cooking and know how to cook many items, then you are going to want the flexibility of the Ultra. It is worth every penny and not worth trying to save a few bucks going into the Duo model. Even if you dont not cook a lot or have a wide range of cooking skills, the LCD panel really takes the mystery out of the pressure cooking cycle which is not available on the Duo or Lux models. Maybe the extra settings will entice novice cooks to try new things.Another thing I see commented in the forums is that people are afraid to start using their Instant Pot. Either they are afraid of pressure cooking in general or running the Instant pot is too complicated, so why try.This is a computerized pressure cooker, The venting and pressure regulating system the Ultra is excellent. If you follow some basic rules then you will be cooking worry free for a long time.1. Always have enough liquid in your recipe, The Instant Pot cannot generate pressure if there is not enough liquid.2. Do not over fill the pot. The bottom of page 14 in your Ultra manual has a great explanation on how much you can put in your Instant Pot Ultra.3. After each use, make sure to clean the lid and check to see if the venting system has any food that might block the venting system.This is a computerized pressure cooker and that makes it light years ahead of your mothers or grandmothers pressure cooker. The flexibility that the programming creates for the user makes this one of the more versatile cooking gadgets you can have in your kitchen. The computer programing makes it a safer cooking system compared to a manual stove top pressure cooker.My family is very typical, our kids have many after school activities, we get home late and no one wants to go through the hassle of cooking. We have a slow cooker, but if we forget to set it up in the morning before we leave the house, it still takes time to put together recipes when we get home. The Instant Pot has changed all that. The pressure cooking system cuts cook times dramatically. Additionally I dont have to sit over the stove monitoring my cooking food. Once I put all the food in the pot, put the lid on and hit start, I can get many other things done around the house.My family is eating out less (saving money) and eating healthier, making better food choices than when we are eating out. There are so many recipes out on the internet and in cookbooks that my family looks forward to coming home to eat because it is going to be something good and probably new to us. I purchased the top of the line Instant Pot as it came highly recommended from family. The pot will not consistently pressurize. So I reset, check everything, (including liquid level) and it fails to pressurize. So I reset, check everything again and retry. Pretty soon, a 1 hour meal has consumed 4 and 5 hours and its still not done because the Instant Pot will not pressurize to finish the meal. I have tried two meals, and both failed and had to throw them out (pot roast, and a corned beef).So I opened a ticket on March 4th and received a reply stating longer than normal wait times. Its now March 13th and my return window through Amazon just closed. So now Im stuck with a product that doesnt work from a company that doesnt respond.Do not waste your money or time.

Notes from the Community

Got this charger for my son for Xmas. Within two days of usage, his iPhone 8 battery started to die and would not recharge. Took the phone to apple store and they said it will need to be replaced - the heat from the wireless charger toasted the board. Ended up spending $ 300 for a new phone because of this $25 charger. Strongly recommend not using it. Will call the Anker customer service and get their response. Will post updates from them. The Anker Qi Charger is basically useless with my Pixel 3 XL. Granted, this is mostly my fault, since I failed to read the fine print and simply purchased a qi wireless charger to use with my new phone. I dont blame Anker for this, quite the opposite: I actually blame Google, who have locked down wireless Rapid Charging and are only allowing their own dock to use Rapid Charging technology. This is the same anti-consumer garbage in which Apple has long engaged (though ironically not with these Qi Wireless chargers; go figure), and Im disappointed to see Google fall to its lure as well. But I digress.This particular Anker unit charges my phone, albeit slowly. The real problem, however, is that the charger seems nearly wholly incompatible with the Pixel in specific. It says its charging the phone but my battery continues to drain at the same rate as if it werent docked at all. Furthermore, it has serious stability issues; Ill leave my phone docked for a few minutes and it all-of-a-sudden loses connection and halts charging the phone despite my not having touched the dock or the phone. Very disappointing.Ive actually purchased another Qi Wireless Charging Stand of a different make (made by LK), and while it displays that it charges slowly like this Anker unit does, it actually DOES charge my phone and features none of the connectivity issues the Anker unit does. Im not sure if this is due to a different design, or what, but this Anker unit is nothing more than a paperweight, which is disappointing. I would expect it at the very least to charge my phone, and I could even live with a slow charging rate if it was something I could set my phone on while I work. Seeing as it fails to do even that, it is basically an expensive paperweight, and Ive actually just thrown it in the trash.This could have been avoided had I paid more attention to the fine print or done my research beforehand, so rather than 1-star I typically give to a useless product, Ill give Anker 3-stars so I dont drag the product rating down too much. By all accounts it seems a fine product for other devices, but buyers need to be warned before falling into the same trap I have an purchasing it for their Pixel phone.12/23/18 Edit: An Anker customer service representative reached out to my on their own account after seeing this review, offered me a full refund, AND offered to ship me a Google Pixel fast charger free of charge once they release. Ive bought Anker charging units in the past and Id continue to do so with confidence. Impressive customer service. If you have an iphone or another phone with which this charging unit works I wouldnt hesitate to purchase it. I am also adding a star for excellent customer service. I have purchased two of these Anker Fast Wireless chargers. I have one next to my desk and home and one in my office at work. They are perfect. They make a slight sound to let you know the phone has made contact, I can use it with my wallet case still on the phone, the phone charges fast and I can still look at it and check my next meeting or email while its charging. I tried a different brand of standup charger that had an annoying fan in it that would spin up the second you put the phone on it. The Anker stand just does its job quietly and quickly with a soft blue circle light to tell you its charging. I also prefer the stand-up model vs. the pad ones. I feel like with the pads Ive tried I have to adjust the phone several times to get it to charge, not so with this product. It just works. Note: it does not come with a charging brick which is fine with me, I have a drawer full of them. I use it plugged into a 5 port USB hub at both home and work.I plan to buy another to give as a gift at Christmas. I have a Pixel 3XL and this charger worked great, but now when i put the phone on the charger it was start to charge, then stop and the blue LED on the front of the stand will start to blink. Ive tried turning the phone off, taking the case off, and a few other things but the behavior stays the same. Anker can you give me a solution? Got this Anker wireless charger today and my first impression that it was small in size my iPhone XS Max & Galaxy Note 9 both sit unfirmly in this charger due to its small size both in width & hight, My iPhone chargers very slow! My Galaxy chargers acceptably fast but not fast enough! I cant say that i recommend this charger and i cant say it a bad charger either. Anker did it again and created an awesome wireless charger. I love the fact my phone sits up to charge, instead of laying flat. I have an iPhone XS with a Speck case on it and it charged with no problems with the case on. Its the perfect size for my phone. It comes with a cord that you connect to your charger. The only thing I didnt realize when I bought it was that it doesnt work with the charger that comes with your iPhone. It says not to use Apples 5V / 1A stock charger or a computers USB port to power your Anker wireless charger. Thank goodness I had Apples 10w charger to plug it into. I actually purchased two of theses wireless charges, one for me and one as a gift for my son. He loved mine when he saw it. It definitely is a great accessory for my new iPhone and a purchase I dont regret.


Save $10 on the Echo Voice Remote

Notes from the Community

Got Echo Show as gift from my son last Christmas. At first we had it in our bedroom but after realizing that Alexa is watching and listening to us all the time we decided to place our Echo Show in our living room. I have also installed smart switches and plugs to control lights in various parts of the house and also paired the Echo with different bluetooth speakers. The problem is I have to go near the Echo to give Alexa the command. If I want to listen to music in our bedroom I have to go out of our room and be near Alexa to ask her to play music and switch to bluetooth speaker In our bedroom. Now with Alexa Voice Remote I can give command while Im on bed. To make sure Alexa is listening first command is to ask her to connect to bluetooth speaker on my bedside table or to my TV soundbar (need to call out specific speaker name that was registered in Echo during tha pairing process). From then on I can talk to Alexa as if Echo is my side and I dont have to worry that Alexa is listening coz you need to press talk button for Alexa to hear you (lol). By the way, the instruction that comes with the Alexa Voice does not include pairing with Echo Show and so for a moment Ithought it was made to Echo and Echo Dot only and will not work on Echo Show but It did not take long for me to find the instruction from Amazon Device Support. Im truly happy with this purchase. this thing is a useless lump… IF YOU WANT MULTIROOM AUDIO CONTROL. hear me out. you pair it with one Echo (as the website says). no problem. you start multiroom audio (either from the voice remote, by shouting at alexa or from another room whatever). as SOON as you start multiroom audio the echo this remote is paired with… DISCONNECTS the remote. you cant even change volume, let alone stop or change audio. NO WHERE does it say this on this ad, or in amazon help. amazon support says this is considered controlling multiple devices and isnt supported. throwing it in a drawer since i didnt keep the box. This will be my 4th… YES FOURTH remote I had to re-purchase after the other ones stopped working(all in 2017!!!). If you check all the negative reviews I have had all of the same problems. 1-The voice remote button stopped working 2-the mic button works, but alexa never answers 3-the entire remote stopped working (when I inserted new batteries the remote started to get warm…I thought it was going to start a fire). The only reason why I keep getting new remotes is because the brick and mortar amazon store is around the corner from my job and keeps allowing me to exchange/return at no cost. The voice remote is a device that has become part of my every day and I find I cannot be without it. From working out in a different room from my echo dot to streaming music in an outhouse and outdoors its VERY convenient and useful. Amazon…please if you are reading this FIX THE PROBLEMS ONCE AND FOR ALL. I am not rough with these remotes. I do not perspire on these remotes…I have not dropped the remotes…they are not durable. Please address these issues at your next meeting!!! This hasnt worked for me. I have several Amazon dots and Echo devises, and am generally very impressed with their design and operation. However, while the dot I have installed with an outdoor audio system works seamlessly when I speak to it directly, when I use the Alexa voice remote it doesnt recognize 90% of my music requests from my extensive Amazon Prime library. It will recognize generic requests such as play Beethoven, Jazz, etc.), but if I request a specific artist, song, or album from one of the 3,000+ albums in my Prime Music library it invariably fails, and pulls up something completely unrelated to my request, or tries to direct me to Pandora. I dont write many reviews unless the product in question is extremely bad or extraordinarily good. In this case I am happy to say this was the later.If you enjoy playing with you echo dot, But find yourself screaming to get alexa to stop, you will love this remote. If you hooked your echo dot to a big home stereo and use it like a voice activated jukebox (only way better!!!) you will love this remote. The range is awesome it goes through all the walls in my house. I can turn off the lights in my bedroom by voice even though the echo dot is in the front room. You just have to remember that when you use the remote you do not have to say the trigger Alexa just push the button with the microphone icon on it hold it down for a second so that it has time to trigger the dot, and say Play Led Zepplin stairway to heaven or whatever you desire to do. Or whatever wifi things you have configured for your echo. I have tplink lights in several rooms so I can just say my bedroom off or my bedroom on etc. Plus the remote has a pause fast forward play and rewind on it so if you are playing your song library you can just hit pause or go to the next song with it or hit the mic button and say next. I think the negative reviews I have read in the past were because people did not understand how it works

Works like any wireless charger should. Sits at my desk at work and has a small footprint so it doesnt take up much room. One thing to note is this does not come with a wall adapter, so only the charger and a micro usb to usb A cable. If your device supports fast wireless charging youll need to make sure the wall adapter you use has enough amperage. I purchased this after my 2.5 year old Anker wireless charger didnt complete charges on my phone overnight. It showed it charged but battery % didnt move. This charges faster than the older 5W wireless chargers. It is unfortunately still a dirt magnet as the coating is rubbery and every single piece of anything sticks to the top and bottom. Other than that it charges fast and seems to have a good coil in it. Anker is great and they even gave me 10% off on this due to my old one failing and being out of warranty. Use with my new Samsung Galaxy S10. No problems yet, and Ive had it for a couple months. Works as expected! Admittedly, I dont have testers like others for actual speed of charge, etc - but phone indicates its fast charging.I have a Spiegen cover on my phone & no interference.Generally, I like Anker products (and their pricing & cust service), which is why I went with this one, and so far this charger keeps that expectation met. Charges fast too. Just have to pull my magnetic back forward that covers my credit cards on the back of the cover for charging but not a big deal. Works as well as I expected. My galaxy s10 plus charges in about 2 hours. Wish it used usb c! The LED is dim/unobtrusive which is awesome for a dark room. Its really only used for troubleshooting anyway (does it have power?). Great unit for the money; bought 3. Works beautifully. It has a soft touch plastic feel on top that doesnt let my phone slide around if I bump my table or nightstand. Ill say this, Im the type of guy that cannot breath without my phone.When I got this product it took me 3hrs just to fully charge a Galaxy S7. While my original charger needs only 1hr20min when I charge my phone I like to look at it a few mins after it charges. But when I use this it barely just reaches another 1%. I dont know if thats normal or just me because this is my first time charging like this.I had planned on getting this product because I kept damaging the cord on my charger. But with something like this, itll force me to stop touching my phone. Turns out the charge time is very high. So right now its just not for me.

This deserves more than 5 stars!!! It works great! If your debating weather to buy it or not like i was BUY IT ! You wont regret it. It a little bit heavy heavier than my samsung j7 but it will charge your phone to 100%. AMAZING! So worth the price it charged my phone just about 3 times while I was in FLORDIA! Portable charger is bit heavier than iPhone XS but slim. Both the USB outlets works great and capacity is huge. I can charge two phones at the same time or one phone and one USB light that comes in the package. It came with a decent quality pouch. So i can place the charger and the USB light in the car glove box in case of any emergencies. Works extremely well. Charges my phone two times over. Extremely handy for traveling. Portable charger does take some time to fully charge itself, but once charge, it works well. So Ive been using this charger for a few weeks now and here are some of my thoughts:1. Sturdy2. Easy to understand3. AMAZING design4. And a decent battery life.While it doesnt have quick charge, it does its job well if you are in no rush for battery. Im glad it came out sturdy, im quite clumsy so its REALLY great that it can survive being dropped. The interface is really easy to understand and the flashlight is just a nice touch. As for the design I couldnt have asked for more, it has a nice rigid grip on the back which for me is really satisfying along with the paw indicator which looks really good. All in all i was satisfied with this product and it would do well for a lot of people. Very good product ,it charge my phone very fast and has big capacity that can charge my phone for serval times,and the size is perfect for traveling Great product! Bought for a trip coming up, and since my phone dies quickly I figured I would give this a try. When it arrived, it was nicely boxed with clear instructions, as well as allows you to charge 2 electronics at a time. Came exactly as described and allows for multiple charges before needed to recharge the box itself. I would highly recommend! I love this portable charger its very light weight and not bulky which was a must for me the battery life is okay. It came with a book light as well which is awesome if youre a reader and came with its own protective pouch and has a flash light built in as well . I highly recommend this product

I bought this item to help with the pet odor from the room my ferret is in. It has done nothing to eliminate or reduce the smell and I clean his room/cage twice a day. I thought maybe it would take a few days to completely air out. After a couple days of running this, now a I get tis burning smell coming from it and I cant figure out why. I checked the filter and the rest of the unit, nothing seems to be out of order but the distinct burning smell coming from it made me stop using it. I dont want my pet breathing that smell in…especially since I have no idea what it is coming from. Too much of a hassle to send back and I already got rid of the box. But I am pissed that I opted for this brand considering I never heard of it before vs a brand I knew. Now I have to buy another one.update:After I wrote this initial review, the seller reached out me and replaced my original at no additional cost to me. I got the new on and it works as expected. excellent customer service and i would recommend. I got this a few weeks ago for my bedroom. The air has been super dusty ever since a massive cleaning sent dust flying from every hard to reach book and cranny. While reading the setup guide. I saw that it couldnt go within 15 of an obstruction on any side. I decided to place it near my laundry hamper and bedroom door.Within a day I noticed that my room smelled much better (I had apparently gone nose blind to the laundry smell) but the air quality wasnt any better. In fact, dust seemed like it was floating around more than ever. In the next few weeks I noticed if I brought a cup of water to my room, within a few hours it would get little dust floaters coating the top of the cup.I saw a picture of someone elses review that put the filter on top of a tall piece of furniture. Yesterday, I decided to try that-maybe it would help. Immediately, I noticed things were way worse. I could barely breathe, coughing and choking on all the dust flying through the air.So I sat and thought about it-why is this happening?? If the filter made the smell go away then why is it making the dust worse??? Then it clicked, the dust was getting sucked through the air to the filter, flying around everywhere, before the filter would even get a chance to clean it out.I investigated, where was the dust doming from, and it occurred to me, the supply air duct. Sure enough, once I took the vent off I could see a pile of dust or dirt and grime at the bottom of the vent. I cleaned the vent out as best I could, and moved the filter next to the vent.This morning I woke up with no dust floaters in my water cup and the air feels easier to breathe. My next step if I still have problems will be to get the air ducts in the house professionally cleaned. This is my first air purifier, and I gotta say, its pretty amazing.There is a button that looks like documents. Not sure what it does. I didnt read the manual. Maybe its some sort of reset for the filter?Pros:- Very sleek, small- Nice blue nightlight settings (2 levels)- 3 speeds Speed 1 is super quiet Speed 2 is around the noise level of a fridge Speed 3 might be a bit loud for you, but around the same noise level of a normal fan- Clean air! Ive woken up feeling great since weve had it!- Very sensitive buttons- Only have to change the filter 6-12 months- Easy setup, just remove the bag on the filterCons:- Clicking a button has a high pitched noise that you cant mute- Speed 3 may be a bit loud for you- Sensitive buttons may be annoying for you, I accidentally hit the off button all the time I foster kittens for a rescue, and no matter how often I clean the boxes, 2 or 3 times daily, and general cleaning, I still have an odor in the room. I got this product out of desperation. It was a good size and weight for kitties bouncing around. I am truly shocked and enormously happy with how it works! My husband was at wits end with his sensitive nose. He goes in there now and is astonished, no smell. We are getting another for the kitchen! The room is 10×10, and I use it one the 2 setting. I also enjoy the nitelight. Very helpful without disturbing sick sleepy babies recovering from illness. Wow, well Ive really enjoyed this unit, seems to keep the air clean, etc.. then I got an EMF detector to measure my smart meter and all the Wifi gadgets in the house. Never would I have guessed the most potent thing in my house is this air filter when running! My Router gives off a 1 while this will hit around 50-80 withing a 3ft radius! Sadly I am outside the return window. I got this for my baby registry and subscribed to get the filters every six months.PROS:1. Its small enough to be out of the way but large enough to make a difference in the air quality. Especially valuable since we live near two highways.2. Quiet but enough of a hum to be a white noise machine3. Doesnt cost an arm and a leg. If you have a three bedroom and you get one for each room it would probably cost as much as a good high end purifier.CONS:1. Night light is blue. Blue light actually inhibits sleep.2. Sometimes the buttons freeze and are not responsive. It needs to be unplugged and replugged a few times.3. Can only filter one room. The directions said it can clear cooking smells too but I havent found that to be the case.Generally pretty good. Would buy again.
