Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

We got one a few weeks ago but still haven't used it. My intention is to replace the old rice cooker and the old crock pot while adding pressure cooking to the toolset. We'll see.

Food dehydrator! My wife drys fruit for camping and snacks, etc. I'm hoping she'll make some fruit leathers this year.

Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

Use it at least once a week here. It's a lifesaver when mornings are a rush to get the kid out the door on the way to work, and getting home around 6 to still be able to still make something.

Nothing beats cooking a whole chicken to tender perfection in 20 minutes and then making some serious broth with the carcass, also in the pressure cooker.

Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

Serious question: Has the pressure cooker industry moved to rebrand and get away from that name because of negative associations with the words " pressure cooker"?

Quite likely. Most likely is that they realize the pressure cookers never wear out (like mine), so they're trying to reinvent the wheel with some "fancy" new digital gizmo, cooking a plethora of things, this way to Sunday, all in the guise of being "convenient," and SAVING TIME! Rush... Rush... Rush.. cookers of 2017 unite!

In other words, it's rebranding / reimagining, which in 2017 is becoming old hat to most companies. If they don't do it every 3-5 years, they perish, such is the caprice of the Business World of the the USA.

Leave the damn name alone, and call it a damn pressure cooker, already! And, given the inablility of 95% people these days of following basic instructions, yes, "pressure cookers" are nefarious and violent things to use since they actually require some simple directions to be adhered to in their proper (ie, "safe") use.

Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

Relax... It's advertised with Pressure Cooker in the name.

Instant Pot is the company. (for the one being discussed here - there are others).

Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

I mentioned that they were electric pressure cookers in the OP, but don't let me get in the way of a good conspiracy theory.

Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

After reading this thread, and some other info, it's clear I'm missing out on some good cooking

I was going to say you could make your own ...

Since you are high though, I'll just go with this:

Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

Pressure cooker
and
Electric pressure cooker are two different things

The Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker, not the same thing as a stove top model. The electrics generally have a lower cooking pressure (not max pressure) and will take slightly more time to cook something than the older stove top pressure cookers (maybe add 10% more cook time for an electric)

The electric ones came about in the early 90's

Those guys are marketing geniuses for all the wrong reasons!

The only thing I've ever replaced in all those many years of my Pressure cooker is the vacuum seal ring... for all of $5.
Bet you're still driving an old reliable 1955 Plymouth, too.

Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

My wife has two of the 6 in 1 model. She loves them.

Got them thru Amazon when they had a significant discount. She bought one on the recommendations of other members who (like her) belong to the same health & nutrition website. Got another because she wanted to things that would required letting one dish get cold while waiting for another to cook.

Many members had owned other makes of electric cookers, but vastly preferred the 6 in 1 Instant Pot. Supposedly, the 6 in 1 model does something the newer 7 in 1 model can't. Don't recall what that is, though.

Many of the website's recipes required a pressure cooker, but my wife didn't want to deal with the old fashioned kind. Her late mother had one and my wife really didn't like it. After seeing some pics of what can go wrong with one, I can't blame her.

Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

I just picked up an Instant Pot a few weeks ago, so I haven't done a whole lot with it yet. Made some sloppy joes, a beef roast, and a chicken thigh recipe. None of them were spectacular, but I imagine as I get things dialed in, the quality will come up. The convenience factor is hard to beat, though. I did the chicken thigh recipe from frozen thighs to tender and flavorful in about 25 minutes. No monitoring, and when it got done I didn't have to stop what I was doing in the garage to turn down the heat.

The rice turns out pretty good, but does anyone else have issues with the rice sticking to the bottom of the stainless steel pot?

Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

I got one about a year ago and use it all the time, sometimes multiple times a week. I got a second insert just because I use the thing so frequently. Beef stew is a cinch, as are chicken stock and many other things. For those looking for good recipes. I highly recommend this book: https://www.amazon.com/Great-Big-Pre...ooker+cookbook.

Do you need to brown the meat separately or does the instant pot brown the beef?

Instant Pot has a saute function which enables you to brown things right in the pot. Does a decent job, too.

Re: Anyone use an Instant Pot?

I have one as well. Walmart has them for $79 now https://www.walmart.com/ip/Instant-P...Mitts/46700672

The website says $99 but they are $79 in stores here.

I've made the best ribs ever in mine using this recipe

And I made an awesome Mississippi Roast in it tonight. I love it!!

First recipe made was pulled pork, and it was good. Still have a lot to learn, though.
