"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.

"IE break down etc."

This is my real experience, not paid review. After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT. I measured my crock pot which was 6 quart, so that's what I ordered. And I have FIVE portions of leftovers instead of the 1-2 I had with the smaller I. Mute button for those beeps in the night when cooking yogurt etc. Also, confusing on what you were buying- regular PPC or PPCXL. Everything works just as advertised.

"99 for shipping."

Natural pressure release generally takes between 15 and 20 minutes. And there's just a single pot to scrub at the end! 6 qt into the truck and now I have the 3 qt here too. It also had the yogurt function which other IP do, but not some of the other makes. Or use it to cook something separately. Use Manual setting, low pressure, for 2 to 3 minutes. IP has a+ and- sign to increase or decrease the time.

"This was it!"

They're all for 6QT, not a lot for 3QT. I have to pressure cook it and scrub everything forever to get it clean. Natural pressure release generally takes between 15 and 20 minutes. They're all for 6QT, not a lot for 3QT. Personally I just find it easier to use'manual' and set the time that I want. So exciting, because I don't have an oven. Then just throw it back in the pantry until next time.

"It's so versatile!"

For a long time, I wasn't a believer. IP came with some of the accessories you pay for on the PPCXL. IP has a left and right handle that will hold your lid tilted. Everything works just as advertised. I'm part of a FB PC group and I don't see complaints on the IP. The best features I love is the removable lids. I mean, I'm all for electronic gadgets in the kitchen.

"Yes I did."

I bought the 3 qt mini for use in our camping trailer. I've been using the 6 qt IP, but always had way too much food left over. And speaking of recipes- here is how to make those poached eggs, and baked potatoes. My inner pot doesn't get that hot on yogurt mode. When I saw this I immediately wanted it and did some research. They're all for 6QT, not a lot for 3QT. Or use it to cook something separately.

"Again a refinement."

However, I ended up dragging it home and using it there. Keep Warm Selector can be selected to on or off at anytime. Then just throw it back in the pantry until next time. For a long time, I wasn't a believer. I'm a newbie and wanted an air fryer for years. After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT. I figure on a roast, I will do the meat first, then veggies.

"Good luck!"

At the time, it was just my wife and I and our two-year-old daughter. So really your cooking space is more like 2 quarts, like a small sauce pan. Eventually, though, there was a sale, and I bought one. Keep Warm Selector can be selected to on or off at anytime. Because this cooks so quickly, it is very easy on my solar system. The 6 quart will hold four pint canning jars for sterilization. My inner pot doesn't get that hot on yogurt mode.

"Instant Pots and a 10 qt."

There's no way I could have something like the Ninja foodi on my counter top. I did a lot of research and felt the need to share it. And speaking of recipes- here is how to make those poached eggs, and baked potatoes. BOTH LIDS ARE HEAVY1 The air fryer lid is very heavy. For a long time, I wasn't a believer. If I have more information, I will do an update. This is so easy to use, and it's the perfect size for one or two people.

I'm part of a FB PC group and I don't see complaints on the IP. I cannot recommend this machine enough! I have to pressure cook it and scrub everything forever to get it clean.

"Nice little feature."

Yogurt Button- The IP has this and the PPCXL doesn't. This makes just the right amount for us without waste. For a long time, I wasn't a believer. The previous models had an adjustment button. Just doesn't clean easily unless I’m missing something. No deductible, no hidden fees, no shipping, transferable. It's truly a fraction of the time and frees up the oven for the main course!

For the Air Fryer look for recipes for the Mealthy Air Fryer. Everything works just as advertised. When I first saw it, I ignored it as another gimmick I usually ignore.

But that would have taken like 10 hours! I'm slowly finding recipes I love and it makes me love to cook again! Eventually, though, there was a sale, and I bought one. Last night I think I reached my true peak of giant Instant Pot appreciation. So I did my research and bought it, DUO nova. It's a perfect size for just the wife and myself. I hate washing it but food is done faster and better.

"Yes, I've cleaned it."

Three new preset buttons- cake, egg, sterilize. This 8 quart Duo Plus came up as a daily deal thing, and I bought it. This is my real experience, not paid review. I have to pressure cook it and scrub everything forever to get it clean. Overall, I have to say I love this appliance but it does require a deal of learning. My problem is that I always forget to take food out of the freezer to thaw. Eventually, though, there was a sale, and I bought one.

It's takes up about the same space as my kitchen aid. Overall, I have to say I love this appliance but it does require a deal of learning. This works with new potatoes, and regular potatoes! On the above, I would probably just buy a 2nd Instant Pot. There's no way I could have something like the Ninja foodi on my counter top. This is my real experience, not paid review. This machine is incredible, I'm being honest.

Use Manual setting, low pressure, for 2 to 3 minutes. So exciting, because I don't have an oven. I'll make sure to update this review in a few months. 6 qt into the truck and now I have the 3 qt here too. And the flat-bottomed steamer is very versatile. So exciting, because I don't have an oven. There's no way I could have something like the Ninja foodi on my counter top.
