Ok, so these instant pots are a big craze right now. Do you have one? Want One? Ever tried one?
Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Maker and Warmer, prepares dishes up to 70% faster
We have one. I really only use it on the Pressure Cooker mode. I have read that it not a good slow cooker.
The first two meals I made in it were a flop, but I am trying to use it more and the meals seam to be getting better.
It makes great roasts and baked potatoes.
It does cook faster, but you also have to take into account it can take 10-15 minutes to come to pressure before the cooking time starts. And if you are cooking meat, they say it is best to use natural release at the end, which can add another 10-15 minutes.
I lied…. I have also used the saute funtion. Its really nice to be able to saute the meat before you cook it and not have any extra dishes.
I have also used saute at the end to make gravy.
Chef Pete has found the allure yet of them. We are only occasional crock pot users, and most other things he just does with normal pots and pans.

I just got a crockpot instant pot if you well that’s the brand. Anyways I love it I made a beef stew and under 35 minutes I could not believe how tender the meet was. Then I made a honey garlic chicken and it was out of this world and the meet was so tender again. Tonight I’m going to do Korean beef barbecue. If It works out that’s probably what I’ll make for our first spring opener. I really need to find some good recipes so I have options
I’ll wait until someone brings an instapot meal to a pot luck and then I’ll go “Wow….I need one of those!!!”

So the holidays are soon approaching and the conversation of “What we want for Christmas?” has come up. I want a toy-hauler but that’s not happening so I’m back to the Instant-Pot. I found a lot of recipes online and will a pretty active lifestyle, this should be convenient.
TMMull, I read your post wrong… thought you said ‘Bought one from a Bar this Christmas’. not ‘Bought one for Bar this Christmas.’ Thought it was a good idea.
I think this will be on our Xmas list as well.
Any recommendations on size or brand(s)? We usually cook for 4 people.
