We tested the Instant Pot today in a Facebook Live video!
(Tested it for lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic – etc., – using an XRF Analyzer)

The one pictured and linked here is the one we tested.
Conclusion: Some trace lead and cadmium was found in components of the Instant Pot that do not touch the food. Since I am a hardcore lead poisoning prevention advocate I will choose to not buy one of these for my home (until they make one that is entirely lead-free.) However one of the standards I have shared with friends is: “Would I eat food at your home if you cooked it for me in this?” And the answer to that question is “Yes.” I would have no problem or concern eating food that you cooked for me in the Instant Pot.
