Default Instant pot!

So....I've got one of those new-fangled Instant Pots coming in the mail. My crock pot died today and everyone seems to have one. What are you cooking in yours?

Instant pot in Colorado is Marijuana.

Default Re: Instant pot!

I love my Instant Pot! (I live in Colorado, but I'm totally talking about the appliance here, lol.)

Tonight's dinner was one of our favorites - white chicken chili. I use dry beans and it is totally done after an hour, even at our ridiculous altitude.

I use it for pretty much everything.... grains, beans, meats.... There's an Instant Pot FB group that is really helpful. Some of the people are a bit obsessed (and make a LOT of cheesecake in there), but there are lots of yummy recipes posted.

I do think they should have reconsidered the brand naming.

I found the Facebook group but it moves FAST! Hopefully I can keep up with recipe suggestions here.

I do a lot of soaking/cooking/freezing dry beans.....I'm hoping this will enable me to skip a step.

I just got one too, though I'm finding it a little overwhelming.

So far I have made hard boiled eggs and brown rice lol. I'm planning to do a whole chicken next.

I think it is a superstar when it comes to making beans. I like the texture of pressure cooked beans much better than the texture of crockpot beans. I also love that I can toss dry beans into soup recipes and they come out perfectly when the soup is done cooking.

Steel cut oats cook really quickly in the Instant Pot, too. The trick is that you need to make sure to use non-dairy milk in them, because dairy milk will scorch and taste burnt.

What if you use water?

They're half price on US Amazon, too. I think I need this more than I need new pajamas ...

Is this a good one to get?

Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker 6Qt/1000W, Stainless Steel Cooking Pot and Exterior https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FLYWNYQ..._z7NLwb3XHAGTX

Seriously, I have the world's worst cook top and it has brought me to tears more than once. I've never burned food until we moved to this house. The cook top is so unpredictable and it's an Electrolux! I'm ordering today.

Lisa, I bought that one last night. After learning instant pot is more than a drug. Lol. My in laws sent $100 for our special day. I'm hoping my husband can learn to cook with this.

Default Re: Instant pot!

My mom sent me some money for baby things. I was going to set aside it to order Thai carry-out post-partum but I think G and dh will enjoy cooking in this thing.

I hate soaking beans, also.



---------- Post added at 09:57 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:33 AM ----------

I just ordered. It's coming on Friday! I'm so excited! This will enable us to postpone replacing the cook top for much longer.

Default Re: Instant pot!

Yeah for Amazon, mine is coming tomorrow instead of Friday! That might actually motivate me to make a grocery run in the morning to try a new recipe.

I'm thinking some kind of risotto ...

Oh dear. I'm storing one of these for someone but I never use it, though I have permission to.... Now I think I should buy one because it's on sale! Or maybe I can just be inspired by you all and use this one
