"Or make soup."

And this brings us to the two different types of pressure release. On the above, I would probably just buy a 2nd Instant Pot. Would give 10 stars if it was an option! Everything works just as advertised. Everything works just as advertised. Reheating leftovers is far easier to clean up than cooking a fresh meal. You're using between cooking's, otherwise whatever fat, meat or coatings etc.

West Bend 82011 Final Thoughts

"Such a relief!"

And speaking of recipes- here is how to make those poached eggs, and baked potatoes. Personally I just find it easier to use'manual' and set the time that I want. The Safety Guideline book states that dents are a problem, so be careful. Everything works just as advertised. After the test, I decided to try my first dish. The air fryer lid is mostly a big heating element so easy clean up there. Maybe I can blame my quarantine weight gain on this.

ChefWave First Impressions

"So I waited again."

I have to pressure cook it and scrub everything forever to get it clean. Basically if you follow Youtubers recipes, it's foolproof. For a long time, I wasn't a believer. IP has a left and right handle that will hold your lid tilted. If you have to buy only one thing for your kitchen, this is it. The air fryer lid is mostly a big heating element so easy clean up there. You will also want this separate glass lid that is sold by the Instant Pot people.

ChefWave Final Thoughts

"I love it!"

I'm part of a FB PC group and I don't see complaints on the IP. I assume there will be recipes on the net, but it is early. Mute button for those beeps in the night when cooking yogurt etc. I do wish it came with a baking guide and recipe book. Imagine you're cooking ALL of your meals with nothing bigger than a sauce pan. I'm extremely, EXTREMELY impressed with the Duo Crisp. I did a lot of research and felt the need to share it.

"Nice little feature."

Any recipes for the 8 quart should work. I looked at this item for a long time before I finally decided to buy it. My problem is that I always forget to take food out of the freezer to thaw. I also have had the most difficult time cleaning it. This is so easy to use, and it's the perfect size for one or two people. This gives me enough for 4 or 5 servings. You will also want this separate glass lid that is sold by the Instant Pot people.

"Eating out less."

Using the Manual setting, set the cooking time for 12 minutes, using high pressure. They're all for 6QT, not a lot for 3QT. I'm a newbie and wanted an air fryer for years. Or use it to cook something separately. But, as I'm sure most pressure cooker owners do, we survived. I've used that one constantly for a month without a single scratch. IP has a+ and- sign to increase or decrease the time.

"Artichokes."

So exciting, because I don't have an oven. Any recipes for the 8 quart should work. Keep Warm Selector can be selected to on or off at anytime. I've been using the 6 qt IP, but always had way too much food left over. And I have FIVE portions of leftovers instead of the 1-2 I had with the smaller I. I hate washing it but food is done faster and better. Reheating leftovers is far easier to clean up than cooking a fresh meal.

Ninja OP305 Final Thoughts

"And still do but."

If you have to buy only one thing for your kitchen, this is it. The PPCXL doesn't have this and you wrap it and put it in the oven. 2 minutes will probably be enough unless you're at a high altitude. I had trouble figuring out how to go from Hi to Low pressure. I let it release naturally and have a perfectly cooked, tasty meal every time. Eventually there will be good cookbooks by known publishing houses. The best features I love is the removable lids.

"7 and PPCXL 4."

I'm used to cook once a week for 5 days, you call it meal prep. I pressed mine and noticed it moves in and out very easily. This is my real experience, not paid review.

"There are two books."

So far everything I have made in the Duo Crisp has been fantastic. This is so easy to use, and it's the perfect size for one or two people. And there's just a single pot to scrub at the end! This product is my best friend and I would marry it and grow old with it if I could. Great machine, bad basket, not impressed with customer service so far. They're all for 6QT, not a lot for 3QT. No deductible, no hidden fees, no shipping, transferable.

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.
