Instant Pot

I just ordered an Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W from Amazon with their Black Friday pricing.
Any tips or tricks from experienced users.

Thank you for moving my post. I started a separate thread as this thread seemed to have taken a hard left turn to an alternate dimension.

Wondering if any of you have any new recipes or success stories using the Instant Pot. Also curious whether your trailer's inverter can handle the load, which I think is 1000 watts?

I see a 5-quart which only uses 900 watts.

https://www.amazon.com/Instant-Pot-I...00FQ6VEKS?th=1

With the reduced cooking time, maybe using the inverter is not too painful, in terms of battery use, especially for those with some solar charging?

Thanks,

Peter

You will have to be connected to power to use it but we don't plan to boondock too often. But if you do you can cook quickly while on shore power. It is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, and has a sauté option for all in one cooking. I live in Tx...very hot. This is a great way to have beef roasts or turkey breast (45 min.) with out heating up the kitchen. Frozen chicken breast to falling apart in about 20 minutes, yes. Just keep reading about it online, you will be hooked also. Pinterest has many recipes.

I have an old Presto cast aluminum pressure cooker, purchased at a yard sale, uses no electricity and does everything the IP does. It just needs to be monitored.

Some people like old things, and the old ways....my husband was one of those, and proud of it.

Cooked my first Instant Pot dinner tonight. Potato Salad with boiled eggs and Baby Back Ribs. Came out amazingly good for a first effort. 4 minutes for potatos and eggs. 18 minutes for ribs plus 8 minutes each side after adding sauce under the broiler to caramelize the sauce. Normally it takes me an hour to make potato salad and 5 hours for ribs. This going to make an excellent addition to the trailer kitchen.

You got my mouth watering last night! The salad is amazing, especially how well the hard-boiled eggs seem to work in the Instant Pot:

Thanks.

So I did check it out and aside from being programmable, allowing the user to neglect it for a time, it is only a pressure cooker. All of the wonderful meals it can make can also be made in a regular pressure cooker if the user brings a mind to the table.

My mind is still working just fine, thank you. (Most days)

And propane.

Part of the appeal of some items (I'm not alone in this) is to have electric and non-electric alternatives. Major or minor appliances.

Campfire cooking a third level.

One of the nice things about plenty of space and cargo weight capacity is some redundancy.

Convenience has more than one level.

Etc.
