Default Re: Help? Instant Pot: Trying to Decide keep the 6qt or go up to 8 again?

I have two, one 8 qt and one 6 qt. I am really glad I have both sizes.



One example:

You cannot make 4 cups of rice (4 cups rice, 4 cups water) in an 8 qt Instant Pot because you will get a "burn" error and it won't cook. You have to make a lot more. So, unless you know you will always make a huge batch of rice, it's really good to have the 6 qt. We don't really like having leftover rice even though I often make huge batches of things we eat with rice. If we have leftovers the next evening, I prefer to make a fresh batch of rice rather than trying to reheat leftover rice, since it is so easy to make rice in the IP and can be cooked on timer delay.
