"Love this pot!"

- Twenty minutes as the Instant Pot got up to cooking pressure. 2 minutes will probably be enough unless you're at a high altitude. This product is my best friend and I would marry it and grow old with it if I could. The 6 quart will hold four pint canning jars for sterilization. After the test, I decided to try my first dish. I'm extremely, EXTREMELY impressed with the Duo Crisp. It's takes up about the same space as my kitchen aid.

Presto 02141 Final Thoughts

"We loved it."

They're all for 6QT, not a lot for 3QT. 5 months of daily use, I have to say this is the best cooking device I've ever used. After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT. - Twenty minutes as the Instant Pot got up to cooking pressure. The best features I love is the removable lids. - Five minutes painting on some sauce and letting everything sizzle on the grill. I'm having fun with this but so far it's trial and error.

"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. Delay start of 24 hours and keep warm for 10 hours. I'll leave the visualization to you.

Presto 02142 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Then walk away!"

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. I've used that one constantly for a month without a single scratch. I cooked two racks of BBQ pork back ribs.

BestApplince Electric Pressure Cooker 6 Quart Final Thoughts

"Free shipping for IP."

I'll make sure to update this review in a few months. Last night I think I reached my true peak of giant Instant Pot appreciation. It's a perfect size for just the wife and myself. 2 minutes will probably be enough unless you're at a high altitude. I have to pressure cook it and scrub everything forever to get it clean. And this brings us to the two different types of pressure release. After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT.

"Happy Instant Potting!"

I bought the 3 qt mini for use in our camping trailer. Just had to order a stainless 3 qt. And there's just a single pot to scrub at the end! And speaking of recipes- here is how to make those poached eggs, and baked potatoes. It's a perfect size for just the wife and myself. If I have more information, I will do an update.

Cuisinart CPC-900 Final Thoughts

"I couldn't believe it."

Using the Manual setting, set the cooking time for 12 minutes, using high pressure. So really your cooking space is more like 2 quarts, like a small sauce pan. The air fryer lid is mostly a big heating element so easy clean up there. Eventually there will be good cookbooks by known publishing houses. I've used that one constantly for a month without a single scratch. Because some recipes call for manual release and some call for natural release. I've used that one constantly for a month without a single scratch.

"So I waited again."

Then just throw it back in the pantry until next time. However, I ended up dragging it home and using it there. I bought an IP plain glass lid for slow cooker& yogurt mode. Yogurt Button- The IP has this and the PPCXL doesn't. Just had to order a stainless 3 qt. 6 qt into the truck and now I have the 3 qt here too. So exciting, because I don't have an oven.

"Artichokes."

Because some recipes call for manual release and some call for natural release. Then, if you're adding the trivet, you're losing another inch of space. Eventually, though, there was a sale, and I bought one. I had read they were dishwasher safe, but not 100% as they might keep flavors. Delay start of 24 hours and keep warm for 10 hours. I had trouble figuring out how to go from Hi to Low pressure. Eventually there will be good cookbooks by known publishing houses.
