Instant pot

Post by Named'em Tamed'em » Sun Apr 14, 2019 4:08 pm

Has anyone used one? I put an arm roast in mine last night for 90 minutes, fall apart delicious. All I did was RUB it down with some seasoning, chopped green Chile peppers and garlic and onions. Oh, and I seared it first.

This was a first for me, I'm impressed. :nod:


Get over it! It could have been alot worse.

I’ve found they do great for cooking corned beef. Much faster and more consistent.

I need to get one. Everyone is raving about them. Far better than a crock pot.

Is anything really better than a crockpot? Is that possible?

No.

Faster does not necessarily equate to better.

I use a crock pot for most of my cooking. I fixed short ribs covered with Sauerkraut tonight but I hear the fast cook is better.

I couldn't have turned that roast into carnitas in 90 minutes in my crock pot!

That was in pressure cooker mode.

There is steam and slow cooker mode.

I'm assuming the time saved by this gizmo, each time one uses it, is added on cumulatively to the end of your life..if you use it enough, will ya never die? Pressure cooker with a timer............Is this thing just for people that can't tell time or afford a wristwatch?


Oh Lord won't you buy me a new instant pot?

Maybe I’m doing something wrong but everything turns out bland.
It seems the steam washes off the seasonings.
It cooks fast but I don’t get the flavor like a slow cooker.
