Thanks Charski. My smooth top stove won't allow me to use a regular pressure canner so I was hoping this might be an answer to both the pressure cooking and pressure canning. Guess not. (Sorry to take this off topic)

Yeah, Tiger, that would be a pain! Maybe a good quality, high wattage countertop hot plate for canning purposes would work?

I finally got a chance to cook in the IP. Cooked up a batch of Senate Bean Soup since I've had the easter ham bone in the freezer forever.

Definitely a learning curve. But it came out good.

Barbo, have you tried the mexican markets? They usually carry it. If not, maybe you could ask them to order it for you.

I got an instant pot after reading the raves on Nom Nom Paleo. It's my first pressure cooker, and I love it. So far, I've made kahlua pork a lot, pot roast, and barbeque beef. I like that it is fast and it doesn't stink up the cabin (I spend 4 months each summer in a tiny cabin with no stove, so the instant pot is great)

I have been neglecting my Instant Pot! I used it this weekend to make bone broth from my turkey carcass. I broke up the carcass and stuffed it in there, along with an onion and some fresh herbs. High pressure, two hours, and then it ended up sitting there another hour or so on warm while I was doing other things. I poured it through a cheese cloth in to a large container and refrigerated it, skimmed the fat, and got 12 cups of the most gorgeous broth. Froze it in two cup portions in quart bags. I am committed to getting this piece of equipment back in to my regular cooking life.

Amazon had this as a daily deal on Saturday and I bought one. then yesterday I saw that Wal Mart sells them for the same price as the daily deal....$75. Looking forward to getting bk into the swing of cooking stuff w/ a pressure cooker. Haven't used one in 15 yrs or so and then it was the one w/ the shaking thing on it. Had I not seen the talk here on it I probably wouldn't have bought it, thks all.

I hope you love it- I have never seen an older pressure cooker in action, so I didn't know what to think from other people's comments. I have found the IP very user-friendly, and not scary at all.

Be sure to post your experiences here!

I have the predecessor of the Instant Pot. It is a Revere Meal 'n Minutes digital pressure cooker and I've had it for more than 10 years. It has a browning setting, a steaming setting, low and high pressure, delayed cooking, keep warm, etc. I use it all the time (makes perfect hard boiled eggs that peel easily EVERY time.) The non-stick coating on the pan is long gone, but other than that, it is in perfect condition.

My stove is electric, controlled by push buttons, and I could never get the temperature just right to keep my regular pressure cooker at the right temperature. The electronic pressure cooker solved that problem, and the regular pressure cooker now lives in the motor home where I have a gas stove.

Love my instant pot. Makes things so easy. Last week for guests I made a Mexican rice recipe. Sautéed the onions, red peppers, tomatoes, mixed in the rice, poured in the broth, put the lid on, and pressed the rice button. 12 minutes later I had a great dish. Only problem was I never expected it to cook that fast and dinner was still an hour or so away. But the warm feature took over.

Well thks for that pic Sharon. Darn, these type of pots have been around that long?? Didn't know they existed until this thread. I guess that I've just overlooked them thinking they were just rice cookers???

I've had my digital electric 8 quart oval pressure cooker for YEARS. Bought the first one new on QVC, I think - it's a Cook's Essentials. Then a year or two ago, somebody had a new one they had never used up for sale for $50 on Craigslist, so I bought it - in case the first one ever died! I use them both and sometimes at the same time.

They're really wonderful. I do like the oval because I can fit a decent-sized ham bone or pork shoulder roast in it. But they're hard to find now, so I'd buy a round one if both of these went south on me!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

1T olive oil
6 green onions, sliced
1 carrot, shredded
2 bunches fresh broccoli broken into florets (about 6 cups rough measure)
5 cups water (or broth)
3 chicken boullion cubes (skip if using broth)
1/2tsp each: salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder

1 cup heavy cream
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar

Saute the onion in the oil until it's really fragrant (ok maybe at 7am all onions get fragrant fast, so 2-3 minutes).
Add the carrot, broccoli, water/broth/cubes and seasonings, give it a good stir.
High pressure 4 minutes, then quick release.
Add the cream and cheese, stir to melt (the broccoli will break up easily).

This isn't really thick, so if you thicken, I'd say maybe a water and flour slurry and cook it on "saute" to get it to a simmer before you add the cream and cheese.

Yum Dottie, sounds great.

Using my IP for the first time today, planned on cooking some pork and blackeyes and really didn't want to take the time to learn a new applicance but hey, gotta do it sometime. My beans are cooking under pressure as I type, I'll report bk on how they did.

Amazing success on the first try. Absolute perfection, love when something works out the first time. Of course, things will be trial and error and I'll be writing down what I do until I get used to the pot.
Here's the recipe/info

Blackeyes and Pork
1 lb dry blackeyes 7 c. water , salt and pepper
1 1/2 lbs sliced Boston Butt, removed excess fat, cut into
pcs and seared to get a nice browning. Put some water into
the pan to get up the browned bits (this is included in the
7 c. above) Cooked at low pressure for 1 hr.

Simple Hunter Style Chicken Thighs

4 sliced bacon, chopped
1T olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup roughly chopped olives (kalamata,whatever you like) or capers
2 cloves garlic, sliced thin

6 chicken thighs, salted and peppered
3/4 cup chicken broth

In the IP, "saute" the olive oil, bacon and onion until the bacon starts to brown, then add the garlic and olives. Saute another minute, then add the chicken thighs, brown for 3 minutes per side, just to color the skin, then add broth.
High pressure for 8 minutes, let it sit for 5 minutes then release pressure.

I made Rigatoni Bolognese
And (I was not prepared) it turned out perfect, pasta and all.

"Saute"
2lbs ground pork
1 medium onion (sliced thinly or chopped)
1 carrot (sliced thinly or chopped fine)
4 cloves garlic (sliced thinly or minced)

Until the pork is cooked through mostly.

Turn it off and add :
(seasonings are to taste!)
salt, pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika, dried italian seasoning, and ground fennel.
1 large tin whole tomatoes in juice, crush them by hand
1 beef boullion cube
1 8oz can tomato sauce
2 cups water

Add a 16oz box of pasta and enough water to make sure it's all submerged when you stir it and pat it down (I added 1/2 cup).

Set it for "manual" and 6 minutes under high pressure.
Quick release the steam and stir immediately.

I had mostly sauce and a few of the rigatoni, I was expecting a mushy mess, but it was perfectly cooked.

If I'd had some jar/can tomato based pasta sauce on hand, I'd have used that lol.

Carne Guisada!

2T olive oil
1 large onion, sliced thin
4 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
6oz can tomato paste, divided
1T chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper (you'll adjust salt and pepper later)
8oz water or beef broth
1 can ro-tel tomatoes and green chilis
3lbs lean beef roast, cut into 1" cubes (roughly)

"Saute" the onions and garlic in the olive oil until fragrant (3-4 minutes). Add 1T tomato paste and stir it around for a minute then add everything else except the rest of the tomato paste.
Stir well and go "manual", cook under high pressure 30 minutes.
Quick release, then set it back to "saute" and add the tomato paste, stir until it has thickened a bit, then add salt and pepper as you like.

Since it does not lose liquid, I may go with less broth next time.

Still loving this Instant Pot, once you get your brain to think differently about preparation of some things, it's such a time saver.

Hi all!

I got an Instant Pot during Amazon's Prime Day for 69$. I've used it once for salsa chicken and it came out beautifully. Thanks for sharing some recipes on this thread.
Are you all still enjoying your IPs?

I ordered mine on Prime day too (what a great price ), got it yesterday and made beef stew today. It was easy and a normally not very tender cut of meat came out really tender.

I spend an entire day every week cooking for the week. With the Instant Pot I'll be able to put my meals in and leave them while I go do something else for however long and then come back and do another one. Not stuck watching and interchanging several different pots all day and way less cleanup.
I already love it.

Hubby made pork chops with mushroom sauce for lunch. Had made potatoes earlier in IP and also the fresh pole beans from the garden. A good lunch!

Sounds delicious!

Since my last post I have made ribs (came out well), corn on the cob and green beans (both good) and pot roast that was just okay.

I am really enjoying it though! Making more salsa chicken tomorrow.

We have had one for a couple of weeks now and we love it! Easy to use and easy to clean. What more could one ask for?
We have moved a bunch of our other appliances out of the kitchen and into the basement. Our rice cooker, three crock pots, a veggie steamer, some extra pots and pans and a couple of roasting pans are no longer taking up all of our shelf room.��

Sure Nan, it is super easy.

Use chicken breasts (like 3-4) or chicken thighs, whatever you like.
Put one jar of salsa on the bottom of the pot, then the chicken, then another jar of salsa. I do one jar of regular and one of southwest style with beans and corn.

Cook at high pressure for 15 minutes.

I did quick release, then cooked the salsa down a little on saute while i shredded the chicken.

Many people do about half the salsa, but I prefer to get it good and moist. I eat it in a bowl, topped with shredded cheddar and full fat sour cream.
