"Seriously."

There is safety systems built in and everything can be programmed. Also, confusing on what you were buying- regular PPC or PPCXL. And you know, it can make like 2 gallons of yogurt or porridge or something, so. Delay start of 24 hours and keep warm for 10 hours. Imagine you're cooking ALL of your meals with nothing bigger than a sauce pan. The air fryer lid is mostly a big heating element so easy clean up there. This gives me enough for 4 or 5 servings.

Hamilton Beach 34502 Final Thoughts

"I'm a fan."

- Five minutes painting on some sauce and letting everything sizzle on the grill. But, as I'm sure most pressure cooker owners do, we survived. I hate washing it but food is done faster and better. UPDATED- So I finally got the 6QT and oh. I had trouble figuring out how to go from Hi to Low pressure. Still really happy with my IP-DUO Plus 60. This one only requires you to press a button twice.

"And, here it is!"

The Safety Guideline book states that dents are a problem, so be careful. Slow Cooker Mode had a low, medium and high heat button. After the test, I decided to try my first dish. The pork loin never dried out after it sat on the serving tray. I hate washing it but food is done faster and better. But I moved on from that anxiety, and I set about putting this thing to work. I mean, I'm all for electronic gadgets in the kitchen.

"Note it's a big guy."

Basically if you follow Youtubers recipes, it's foolproof. The Safety Guideline book states that dents are a problem, so be careful. So far everything I have made in the Duo Crisp has been fantastic. I put the filet on the rack and cooked it for 4 minutes. Would give 10 stars if it was an option! The best features I love is the removable lids. Or use it to cook something separately.

"I LOVE THIS PRODUCT."

Great machine, bad basket, not impressed with customer service so far. This one only requires you to press a button twice. I'm part of a FB PC group and I don't see complaints on the IP. On the above, I would probably just buy a 2nd Instant Pot. I put the filet on the rack and cooked it for 4 minutes. Still really happy with my IP-DUO Plus 60. I don't have a microwave, so reheating foods with the instant pot is amazing.

"Okay that's it."

This machine is incredible, I'm being honest. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't count on the sheer size of the thing. I have ruined the beauty of this pot! If you have to buy only one thing for your kitchen, this is it. Last night I think I reached my true peak of giant Instant Pot appreciation. This makes just the right amount for us without waste. But, as I'm sure most pressure cooker owners do, we survived.

"Don't panic!"

I have ruined the beauty of this pot! I hate washing it but food is done faster and better. I let it release naturally and have a perfectly cooked, tasty meal every time. My friend dented her cooker when she carried it to her counter. - Twenty minutes as the Instant Pot got up to cooking pressure. I use my steamer basket and trivet a lot. Because this cooks so quickly, it is very easy on my solar system.

"Artichokes."

And you know, it can make like 2 gallons of yogurt or porridge or something, so. 5 months of daily use, I have to say this is the best cooking device I've ever used. When I saw this I immediately wanted it and did some research. BOTH LIDS ARE HEAVY1 The air fryer lid is very heavy. I cannot recommend this machine enough! I had trouble figuring out how to go from Hi to Low pressure. There is safety systems built in and everything can be programmed.

"Cleanup is easy."

Also, confusing on what you were buying- regular PPC or PPCXL. But that would have taken like 10 hours! This pot is very good and easy to work with. 2 minutes will probably be enough unless you're at a high altitude. That sticks or drops off will cook again and smoke up your kitchen.

"It turned out SO good!"

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.

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.

"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.

"But I will."

So really your cooking space is more like 2 quarts, like a small sauce pan. Because some recipes call for manual release and some call for natural release. Yogurt Button- The IP has this and the PPCXL doesn't. I have to pressure cook it and scrub everything forever to get it clean. Because this cooks so quickly, it is very easy on my solar system. I let it release naturally and have a perfectly cooked, tasty meal every time. I'll make sure to update this review in a few months.
