"Foolproof."

I did a lot of research and felt the need to share it. Personally I just find it easier to use'manual' and set the time that I want. - Five minutes painting on some sauce and letting everything sizzle on the grill. ADs don't work on me and this also didn’t. I don't have a microwave, so reheating foods with the instant pot is amazing. For a long time, I wasn't a believer. I bought an IP plain glass lid for slow cooker& yogurt mode.

Cuckoo CMC-QSB501S Final Thoughts

"And still do but."

Basically if you follow Youtubers recipes, it's foolproof. Everything works just as advertised. Just go for the 6Qt and make your life much easier. On the above, I would probably just buy a 2nd Instant Pot. Imagine you're cooking ALL of your meals with nothing bigger than a sauce pan. I assume there will be recipes on the net, but it is early. IP has a+ and- sign to increase or decrease the time.

"If only because I can."

I'll leave the visualization to you. I use Bar Keeper Friend to clean the pot. And speaking of recipes- here is how to make those poached eggs, and baked potatoes. This one only requires you to press a button twice. I use my steamer basket and trivet a lot. I've made other dishes as well and it works perfectly and cooks very evenly. Slow Cooker Mode had a low, medium and high heat button.

Cuckoo CMC-QAB501S Final Thoughts

"This is a sad omission."

Great machine, bad basket, not impressed with customer service so far. I do wish they make a version of this that has internet connectivity. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't count on the sheer size of the thing. Oh, actually there's one more thing. I don't have a microwave, so reheating foods with the instant pot is amazing. IP came with some of the accessories you pay for on the PPCXL. I'm a newbie and wanted an air fryer for years.

3. CUCKOO CPC-A2510F Steam Pressure Cooker 10 cup (2.5L) White

Cuckoo CPC-A2510F First Impressions

"They're great!"

The Safety Guideline book states that dents are a problem, so be careful. I'm used to cook once a week for 5 days, you call it meal prep. I did a lot of research and felt the need to share it. I cooked two racks of BBQ pork back ribs. Use Manual setting, low pressure, for 2 to 3 minutes. I bought the 3 qt mini for use in our camping trailer. Overall, I have to say I love this appliance but it does require a deal of learning.

"So I waited again."

I'm extremely, EXTREMELY impressed with the Duo Crisp. I'm used to cook once a week for 5 days, you call it meal prep. It also had the yogurt function which other IP do, but not some of the other makes. I bought an IP plain glass lid for slow cooker& yogurt mode. For a long time, I wasn't a believer. I cooked two racks of BBQ pork back ribs. Being a stand up guy for 50 years I figure he's worth the indulgence.

"It's minor, I know."

Personally I just find it easier to use'manual' and set the time that I want. For the Air Fryer look for recipes for the Mealthy Air Fryer. My inner pot doesn't get that hot on yogurt mode. It's takes up about the same space as my kitchen aid. I did a lot of research and felt the need to share it. The 6 quart will hold four pint canning jars for sterilization. Because this cooks so quickly, it is very easy on my solar system.

"I LOVE THIS PRODUCT."

Overall, I have to say I love this appliance but it does require a deal of learning. The previous models had an adjustment button. Reheating leftovers is far easier to clean up than cooking a fresh meal. Reheating leftovers is far easier to clean up than cooking a fresh meal. The PPCXL doesn't have this and you wrap it and put it in the oven. Keep Warm Selector can be selected to on or off at anytime. I mean, I'm all for electronic gadgets in the kitchen.

"Yes I did."

Just go for the 6Qt and make your life much easier. I use my steamer basket and trivet a lot. Last night I think I reached my true peak of giant Instant Pot appreciation. - Twenty minutes as the Instant Pot got up to cooking pressure. Over the weekend I made chili and mac and cheese. Just doesn't clean easily unless I’m missing something. I let it release naturally and have a perfectly cooked, tasty meal every time.

"Don't panic!"

Would give 10 stars if it was an option! There is safety systems built in and everything can be programmed. We've had it a month and use it about 5-7 times a week at the moment. Eventually, though, there was a sale, and I bought one. After the test, I decided to try my first dish. Mute button for those beeps in the night when cooking yogurt etc. I'm extremely, EXTREMELY impressed with the Duo Crisp.

"IE break down etc."

I bought the 3 qt mini for use in our camping trailer. - Five minutes painting on some sauce and letting everything sizzle on the grill. So I did my research and bought it, DUO nova. I'm having fun with this but so far it's trial and error. Just doesn't clean easily unless I’m missing something. Last night I think I reached my true peak of giant Instant Pot appreciation.

When I first saw it, I ignored it as another gimmick I usually ignore. If you have to buy only one thing for your kitchen, this is it. We've had it a month and use it about 5-7 times a week at the moment. Keep Warm Selector can be selected to on or off at anytime. I'm used to cook once a week for 5 days, you call it meal prep.

I ordered it on Black Friday, and it got here about 2-3 days later. 5 months of daily use, I have to say this is the best cooking device I've ever used. This pot is very good and easy to work with.

I pressed mine and noticed it moves in and out very easily. The air fryer lid is mostly a big heating element so easy clean up there. That sticks or drops off will cook again and smoke up your kitchen. So far everything I have made in the Duo Crisp has been fantastic. Any recipes for the 8 quart should work. And the flat-bottomed steamer is very versatile. Being a stand up guy for 50 years I figure he's worth the indulgence.
