the Instant Pot thread
« on: December 25, 2017, 01:47:38 PM »
Who uses these things?   I got my wife a Duo Plus 8qt  9in1.  I consider them a quick, convenient way to put mediocre food in bellies without a lot of time or preparation.  Good food requires a lot of time and a smoker  :chuckle:



So far I got a couple frozen pork loin roasts with some apple slices and a splash of ACV, salt and white pepper.  Turned it on for 95 minutes.  No recipe, just tossed stuff in see how it turns out.  What's your favorite dish?

Its a crock pot on steroids. I love mine I can turn frozen meat into dinner in under an hour with the oressure cooking settings .  It also works beautifully for soup. Its great for quick rice.  For actual crock pot I still prefer my crock pot. 

I like my insta pot.

I dont use recipes I just cook.

If anyone is considering buying one and hasn't yet, make sure you get something other than teflon.   We had a pressure cooker xl, it didn't last 6 months before we were eating the teflon coating. 

I recommend the Instant Pot brand with the stainless steel inner cooking pot.

I like it for making beans, rice, potato.  I do quite a bit of stock through it as well.  I like being able to do 5lbs of mashed potato in under 30 minutes with everything being cooked well.  *(My personal recipe for spuds is manual high pressure, 18 minutes, 5 minutes no pressure release, then scoop out and mash the way you like 'em.)

I'm making great northern beans and ham soup tomorrow with the ham bone and left over ham from Christmas Dinner.

I like to put the potatoes in the kitchen aid and whip them good with cream and salt, or butter and occasionally garlic.   I don't like chunky mashed potatoes, gotta be smoooooth.

This thing is a game changer.  We have an Insta Pot 8 quart and we use it now 3-4 times a week.  We bought a second 6 quart model for our travel trailer.  Let me just say that a tough portion of an old cow moose can be made unbelievable in about 45 minutes.  You can do dried beans in 30 minutes.  We love these things.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

Watching this thread with interest.  Looks like it might be a good "set it and forget it" meal maker for me and my crew, at least while I have the genset running (1000W for the Duo).
