Instant Pot IP-DUO60 Final Thoughts

"Great Crockpot!"

This Crock-Pot holds a LOT of food! The first one worked for a couple of years and then quit. The stoneware liner is easy to clean and food is NOT sticking to the sides or bottom. I'm used to cook once a week for 5 days, you call it meal prep. I have an old Crock-Pot and it still works, but is too small for a roast, etc. It is also more aesthetically pleasing, if that matters at all. I've used it more than a handful of times already, and haven't had any issues.

Instant Pot AURA 6Qt First Impressions

"Buy again."

I've only used it twice and, at this point, I am extremely satisfied. After eating the yummy casserole the next day, I asked my daughter what was in it. I have had it for 2 years and still works perfectly. Then, if you're adding the trivet, you're losing another inch of space. I had never really used a crockpot before and it was super easy to set up and use. IP came with some of the accessories you pay for on the PPCXL. And the lid's diameter is slightly smaller than a complete tight fit.

Instant Pot AURA 6Qt Final Thoughts

"I have a smaller 1."

I can't wait to cook more items using the different functions. Nice and BIG, of course, and as other reviews mentioned, HOT! Remember, ALL slow cookers get HOT on the outside as does this one. No longer a large family to cook for. I vow never again to visit that webiste--it is just not worth the hassle. They're all for 6QT, not a lot for 3QT. Supposedly, the glass lid is also dishwasher safe but I just wash it by hand.

"This is my second one."

I put the filet on the rack and cooked it for 4 minutes. I hate washing it but food is done faster and better. The food I prepared didn't stick to the stoneware and it was super easy to clean. The first one worked for a couple of years and then quit. Over the weekend I made chili and mac and cheese. I had read they were dishwasher safe, but not 100% as they might keep flavors. And, I did buy two from there originally.

"7 and PPCXL 4."

This is the perfect size for one or two people. That explains why it was so danged delicious! Remember, ALL slow cookers get HOT on the outside as does this one. And I have FIVE portions of leftovers instead of the 1-2 I had with the smaller I. I had read they were dishwasher safe, but not 100% as they might keep flavors. Warmer feature is super and it does not appear to be too hot. Or use it to cook something separately.

It's a perfect size for just the wife and myself. Great to make soups as 3 qts is enough for the day w pleanty of leftovers. Even so, I purchased a third because it does perform well overall.

"Cleanup is easy."

After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT. Easy to clean and the basic cook functions make it easy to use. It also gets super hot once the timer nears expiration. After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT. It will hold slightly more but the lid would then touch the liquid. It WOULD if we locked it while cooking, but that's a no-no.

Let me be honest, If I can use it and make great meals, anyone can. But that would have taken like 10 hours! It just has to be at least half full to cook correctly, I believe.

"It was a good price."

After the test, I decided to try my first dish. And the people upstairs kept asking what smelled so great. The user manual is small, but complete, and includes a couple recipes. And you know, it can make like 2 gallons of yogurt or porridge or something, so. Reheating leftovers is far easier to clean up than cooking a fresh meal. Supposedly, the glass lid is also dishwasher safe but I just wash it by hand. That explains why it was so danged delicious!

"It's just right."

I don't know if that's a glitch or the way it is designed. I am a widower and never had to cook anything I'm my life until recently. ADs don't work on me and this also didn’t. So really your cooking space is more like 2 quarts, like a small sauce pan. Reheating leftovers is far easier to clean up than cooking a fresh meal. This gives me enough for 4 or 5 servings.

Of course I said an old family recipe handed down. I have an old Crock-Pot and it still works, but is too small for a roast, etc. It WOULD if we locked it while cooking, but that's a no-no.

Still waiting to hear back from the manufactirer on both questions. Buy from Amazon, pay a few dollars more, get superb service if something goes wrong. Or use it to cook something separately.

Maybe that's nitpicky but that's my honest review! Then you've got the 6qt pot, which is like the big pots you use to boil pasta. First, our lid came with a hole in it. When we have company to dinner, I use the 6 qt. Easy to clean and the basic cook functions make it easy to use. Replaced one we'd had for many years. When we have company to dinner, I use the 6 qt.

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. This pot is very good and easy to work with.
