"This cooker is awesome!"

No deductible, no hidden fees, no shipping, transferable. This gives me enough for 4 or 5 servings. Reheating leftovers is far easier to clean up than cooking a fresh meal. That sticks or drops off will cook again and smoke up your kitchen. You're using between cooking's, otherwise whatever fat, meat or coatings etc. That sticks or drops off will cook again and smoke up your kitchen. They're all for 6QT, not a lot for 3QT.

Nesco PC8-25 Final Thoughts

"I LOVE my Instant Pot!"

I use Bar Keeper Friend to clean the pot. After the test, I decided to try my first dish. When we have company to dinner, I use the 6 qt. I bought the 3 qt mini for use in our camping trailer. 6 qt into the truck and now I have the 3 qt here too. I had read they were dishwasher safe, but not 100% as they might keep flavors. So exciting, because I don't have an oven.

"Chemicals and all that."

I looked at this item for a long time before I finally decided to buy it. Because some recipes call for manual release and some call for natural release. It's truly a fraction of the time and frees up the oven for the main course! I looked at this item for a long time before I finally decided to buy it.

Nesco DPC-9SS Final Thoughts

"Thanks, Instant Pot!"

I've been using the 6 qt IP, but always had way too much food left over. I've made other dishes as well and it works perfectly and cooks very evenly. And you know, it can make like 2 gallons of yogurt or porridge or something, so. I'll leave the visualization to you. I will update this as I use it and get additional questions. This pot is very good and easy to work with. It also had the yogurt function which other IP do, but not some of the other makes.

"We wanted to eat at 6pm."

I've even baked banana bread in it! I put the filet on the rack and cooked it for 4 minutes. The salmon was perfect and so yummy! And I have FIVE portions of leftovers instead of the 1-2 I had with the smaller I. This pot is very good and easy to work with. Or use it to cook something separately. Also, confusing on what you were buying- regular PPC or PPCXL.

Nesco NPC-9 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Don't panic!"

I did a lot of research and felt the need to share it. And there's just a single pot to scrub at the end! I have ruined the beauty of this pot! Delay start of 24 hours and keep warm for 10 hours. My problem is that I always forget to take food out of the freezer to thaw. I've made other dishes as well and it works perfectly and cooks very evenly. I put the filet on the rack and cooked it for 4 minutes.

"Don't panic!"

This 8 quart Duo Plus came up as a daily deal thing, and I bought it. I'm part of a FB PC group and I don't see complaints on the IP. Everything works just as advertised. Natural pressure release generally takes between 15 and 20 minutes. The previous models had an adjustment button. Because some recipes call for manual release and some call for natural release. Overall, I have to say I love this appliance but it does require a deal of learning.

"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!

UPDATED- So I finally got the 6QT and oh. It's truly a fraction of the time and frees up the oven for the main course! So really your cooking space is more like 2 quarts, like a small sauce pan. I've made other dishes as well and it works perfectly and cooks very evenly. On the above, I would probably just buy a 2nd Instant Pot.

"I gave it to a friend."

This one only requires you to press a button twice. - Five minutes painting on some sauce and letting everything sizzle on the grill. A warning- the outside metal is thinner than the original models.

"But I will."

The air fryer lid is mostly a big heating element so easy clean up there. Any recipes for the 8 quart should work. There is safety systems built in and everything can be programmed. And the flat-bottomed steamer is very versatile. Then you've got the 6qt pot, which is like the big pots you use to boil pasta. I hate washing it but food is done faster and better. On the above, I would probably just buy a 2nd Instant Pot.

No deductible, no hidden fees, no shipping, transferable. Reheating leftovers is far easier to clean up than cooking a fresh meal. So exciting, because I don't have an oven. Then it will be a while before the display switches to the timer countdown. I figure on a roast, I will do the meat first, then veggies.
