CHEF iQ Multi-Functional Smart Pressure Cooker Final Thoughts

"Free shipping for IP."

Slow Cooker Mode had a low, medium and high heat button. It also had the yogurt function which other IP do, but not some of the other makes. IP came with some of the accessories you pay for on the PPCXL. When we have company to dinner, I use the 6 qt. I'll leave the visualization to you. And there's just a single pot to scrub at the end! IP came with some of the accessories you pay for on the PPCXL.

"So I waited again."

Oh, actually there's one more thing. So I did my research and bought it, DUO nova. Natural pressure release generally takes between 15 and 20 minutes. The best features I love is the removable lids. IP has a left and right handle that will hold your lid tilted. I also have had the most difficult time cleaning it. I've been using the 6 qt IP, but always had way too much food left over.

"I love this so much."

IP came with some of the accessories you pay for on the PPCXL. I use Bar Keeper Friend to clean the pot. Still really happy with my IP-DUO Plus 60. ADs don't work on me and this also didn’t. Or use it to cook something separately. - Twenty minutes as the Instant Pot got up to cooking pressure. Arrived in perfect condition and I used it that night.

"I LOVE my instant pot!"

After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT. Over the weekend I made chili and mac and cheese. Great machine, bad basket, not impressed with customer service so far. I looked at this item for a long time before I finally decided to buy it. Last night I think I reached my true peak of giant Instant Pot appreciation. And I have FIVE portions of leftovers instead of the 1-2 I had with the smaller I. I did a lot of research and felt the need to share it.

"Corn on the cob."

Overall, I have to say I love this appliance but it does require a deal of learning. Natural pressure release generally takes between 15 and 20 minutes. We've had it a month and use it about 5-7 times a week at the moment. When I saw this I immediately wanted it and did some research. Oh, actually there's one more thing. The 6 quart will hold four pint canning jars for sterilization. For a long time, I wasn't a believer.

"This thing is amazing!"

- Five minutes painting on some sauce and letting everything sizzle on the grill. Personally I just find it easier to use'manual' and set the time that I want. Last night I think I reached my true peak of giant Instant Pot appreciation. Delay start of 24 hours and keep warm for 10 hours. This makes just the right amount for us without waste.

"And still do but."

Then, if you're adding the trivet, you're losing another inch of space. The salmon was perfect and so yummy! At the time, it was just my wife and I and our two-year-old daughter. This machine is incredible, I'm being honest. After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT. But that would have taken like 10 hours! We've had it a month and use it about 5-7 times a week at the moment.

"The food tastes awesome."

This is so easy to use, and it's the perfect size for one or two people. I don't have a microwave, so reheating foods with the instant pot is amazing. On the above, I would probably just buy a 2nd Instant Pot. Being a stand up guy for 50 years I figure he's worth the indulgence. The air fryer lid is mostly a big heating element so easy clean up there. Also, confusing on what you were buying- regular PPC or PPCXL. Using the Manual setting, set the cooking time for 12 minutes, using high pressure.

I looked at this item for a long time before I finally decided to buy it. This one only requires you to press a button twice. That sticks or drops off will cook again and smoke up your kitchen. 6 qt into the truck and now I have the 3 qt here too. Just had to order a stainless 3 qt. Just had to order a stainless 3 qt.
