Please tell me the Instant Pot cooker my wife got for Christmas doesn't have a TCP/IP stack. Because that sounds like one of those stories that ends with hackers setting fire to someone's home.

Ah, looks like the app is just recipes, and the "IP" on the unit stands for "Instant Pot." False alarm. It's just hard to discount the possibility these days that any given appliance wants to connect to the Internet.

@david From now on, every time someone uses “IP” to mean “intellectual property”, I’m gonna pretend they meant “Instant Pot”.
