Anyone have an Instant Pot?

I started seeing these 7-in-1 multicookers getting really positive press from some food bloggers I trust. So with a $100 gift card to Wally World, I bought one. If it works as advertised, I'll probably get rid of at least my smaller slow cooker and smaller pressure cooker.

So anyone have one? Any tips? Any favorite recipes for it?

This is my favorite recipie with the instant pot. I use chicken stock instead of buillon and cook the noodles seperately.

We have one, use it once or twice a week. Really helpful, and it has a lot of functions besides pressure cook, it's a slow cooker, rice cooker, etc. Definitely worth the money.

Can you share links to the cheesecake and butter chicken recipes? Iíve been wanting to try an instant pot cheesecake. Might as well use a recipe that I know is good (if done correctly at least).

I have the 6-quart.

Great for baked potatoes, ribs, roasts, and other large quantities of meat.

I recommend buying an after-market non-pressure lid for slow-cooking and sauteeing purposes.

Also, I bought a cookbook specific to the pot. The included one leaves a lot to be desired.

My Daughter is continually singing the praise of the Insta-pot.....but for the life of me I don’t know why. She invited us over for dinner a month or so back and she made a roast in that thing - it was dry as hell.

I blamed the pot - but then I remembered - that girl can’t boil water...let alone cook a roast.

We love ours. Come home. Drop a pot roast in it. Bag of carrots and baby potatoes. Fill with seasoning and water.

Grab glass of wine. Chill for about 45 min then supper is served.


Chicken
Pot roast
Pork
Rice

These things are awesome.

Got an instant pot for xmas last year and I've used it 3 times. Each time the food was outstanding. Made ribs, and 2 different kind of roasts making a sunday roast last weekend with mashed potatoes and carrots.

Yep,have had one for over a year.Love that I can throw whatever frozen meat in there on top of the trivet, pour a can of coke over it, sprinkle on whatever spices I want, close the lid and walk away. Add 15 minutes for pressure-up and 15 minutes for slow pressure down for meats.

I almost always put meat under the broiler with a little olive oil or glaze and caramelize it after or on my pellet grill to caramelize it.

Always VERY juicy. Super fast way to cook great food.

Damn sure a learning curve though.

Just got one. Haven't tried any recipes yet. I put a whole chicken and 3 big chicken breasts in it to make enchiladas with. Set the timer for 8 minutes. Insane. Chicken was done and juicy.

how did i miss this thread? got an IP last year. there are a million sites with a billion recipes. you honestly can do no wrong.
i used mine at least twice a week until it hit the hottest part of july. then started up with a cooler end of august. the best thing i made was traditional chicken and noodles. sooooo good. i even did spaghetti and meatballs. from start of opening noodles to food on plate, 15 minutes. facebook/pinterrorist have hundreds of sites. you should be able to find something for you.
best advice i can offer, just try one. follow the directions. super easy and fun.
