"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.

PRESTIGE Svachh Clip-on First Impressions

"I LOVE my instant pot!"

IP has a left and right handle that will hold your lid tilted. I can't wait to cook more items using the different functions. I put the filet on the rack and cooked it for 4 minutes. 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. I'm slowly finding recipes I love and it makes me love to cook again! IP came with some of the accessories you pay for on the PPCXL.

PRESTIGE Svachh Clip-on Final Thoughts

"Excellent."

IP has a+ and- sign to increase or decrease the time. Delay start of 24 hours and keep warm for 10 hours. Because this cooks so quickly, it is very easy on my solar system. My friend dented her cooker when she carried it to her counter. ADs don't work on me and this also didn’t. I've made other dishes as well and it works perfectly and cooks very evenly. A warning- the outside metal is thinner than the original models.

3. Panasonic microcomputer electric pressure cooker Noble champagne SR-P37-N

Panasonic SR-P37-N First Impressions

"The food tastes awesome."

My friend dented her cooker when she carried it to her counter. After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT. Great machine, bad basket, not impressed with customer service so far. Then you've got the 6qt pot, which is like the big pots you use to boil pasta. I've used that one constantly for a month without a single scratch. I mean, I'm all for electronic gadgets in the kitchen. My inner pot doesn't get that hot on yogurt mode.

Panasonic SR-P37-N Final Thoughts

"Nice little feature."

After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT. IP has a left and right handle that will hold your lid tilted. I don't have a microwave, so reheating foods with the instant pot is amazing. I have ruined the beauty of this pot! Use Manual setting, low pressure, for 2 to 3 minutes. Still really happy with my IP-DUO Plus 60. And you know, it can make like 2 gallons of yogurt or porridge or something, so.

"This thing is amazing!"

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. My inner pot doesn't get that hot on yogurt mode. I assume there will be recipes on the net, but it is early. I use my steamer basket and trivet a lot.

BLACK+DECKER PR100 Final Thoughts

"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!

"Happy Instant Potting!"

The salmon was perfect and so yummy! If you have to buy only one thing for your kitchen, this is it. Or use it to cook something separately. After the test, I decided to try my first dish. I use my steamer basket and trivet a lot. This is my real experience, not paid review. Use Manual setting, low pressure, for 2 to 3 minutes.

I've used that one constantly for a month without a single scratch. Just go for the 6Qt and make your life much easier. I do wish they make a version of this that has internet connectivity. 6 qt into the truck and now I have the 3 qt here too. This makes just the right amount for us without waste. BOTH LIDS ARE HEAVY1 The air fryer lid is very heavy. Eventually, though, there was a sale, and I bought one.

6 qt into the truck and now I have the 3 qt here too. I ordered it on Black Friday, and it got here about 2-3 days later. Maybe I can blame my quarantine weight gain on this.

It's sort of like the chalk outlines from a little bean murder scene. 2 minutes will probably be enough unless you're at a high altitude.

Use Manual setting, low pressure, for 2 to 3 minutes. - Five minutes painting on some sauce and letting everything sizzle on the grill. Maybe I can blame my quarantine weight gain on this. But, as I'm sure most pressure cooker owners do, we survived. This product is my best friend and I would marry it and grow old with it if I could. This pot is very good and easy to work with.

Natural pressure release generally takes between 15 and 20 minutes. Also, confusing on what you were buying- regular PPC or PPCXL. I cooked two racks of BBQ pork back ribs. When we have company to dinner, I use the 6 qt. Personally I just find it easier to use'manual' and set the time that I want.

"Not a big deal."

Reheating leftovers is far easier to clean up than cooking a fresh meal. I had read they were dishwasher safe, but not 100% as they might keep flavors. My friend dented her cooker when she carried it to her counter. I do wish they make a version of this that has internet connectivity. I've used that one constantly for a month without a single scratch. And the flat-bottomed steamer is very versatile. So really your cooking space is more like 2 quarts, like a small sauce pan.
