I got my instant pot a while back and love it. Have been eyeing the mini to use in the interstate. I gave the 7 in 1 6qt to both my children and they love it also.

Well, if your thinking about it, I saw it on Amazon Prime for $69 after reading this thread yesterday and it arrived this morning...you better get on this one before their all gone! I'd hate to see you go to the Alumalina end of the month in South Carolina without this little baby!

Amazon also has the IP Mini Lux 3qt 6 in 1 for $59.95...which I ordered today.

It is more suited to one, wherever I am, will travel better in the Interstate, and not require calisthenics to get it stowed in the lower cabinet.

Why not...it’s such a versatile little item.

Maggie, I have a 6qt instant pot and there are many times I have wished for a second one. Now since the mini came out, I am going to get it and use it traveling and at home. You may want to rethink getting rid of your 5qt.

I will consider it, Gloria, and thanks for the suggestion.

I am space challenged at home, as well, being in a small house, so donít know that I can convince myself that I need them both ...and someone else could put it to better use than sitting around here most of the time.

My mini is being shipped today.

Maggie

Thanks all for the useful suggestions, especially the low carb ones.

At less than $75, I may go ahead and get one. We're back in Clearwater in November so maybe once we get settled in our winter spot.

Again, thanks all.

Rich

6 in 1 Mini from Instapot? I did not see that one...can you send out a link? $10 bucks less is interesting, but I did not see anything that was 3qt other then the 7-1 Mini from IP?

The 6 in 1 came up when I first googled the 3 quart, but then I had to do some looking to find it again...6 functions are plenty for me.

Wow; your right. They sure did not make that one obvious this model is avalible...looks like difference is few more settings and Yogurt mode in the "7 in one", I got couple days ago. Not sure Yogurt and 5 more settings makes mine worth the extra $10, but wife's happy, so not going to mess with it!

After using the bigger 5Qt model over past year, we think this model is the perfect size for the 2 of us on the road!

Wow Maggie, I hadn't seen the 6 in 1 mini - Great to know the option is available!

Today, I made a one pot Meatball and Penne dish that was delicious - in the 3 quart Instant Pot.

Recipe:

- Put 1 cup water in the bottom of the pot
- Add in meatballs to cover the bottom in one layer (I made raw homemade ground beef and sweet Italian Sausage meatballs with panko breadcrumbs, egg, farm cheese and dried basil/oregano)
- Add 1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce (24-26 ounce size)
- Add 8 ounces penne pasta (1/2 box)
- Put some water in the jar (about half full) and swish around to get the leftover sauce
- Pour the water in the pot until the liquid comes up to the 1/2 mark on the instant pot liner
- Use a spoon and gently push down the pasta into the liquid until it is covered.
- High pressure for 7 minutes and then quick release after 5 minutes
- Open pot; stir and use saute to cook down sauce if there is too much liquid
- Serve with a bit of grated parmesan cheese

I have read that one can use frozen cooked meatballs also with the same timing. The Instant Pot will just take longer to come to pressure due to the temperature of the frozen component.

This makes 4 dinner sized portions and freezes well.


Or... Meatballs in sauce for Meatball subs

- 1 Jar Sauce
- 3/4 cup water (may need more depending on how many meatballs are used)
- Meat balls as desired - Meat balls need to be covered with sauce/water so adjust as meatballs are increased - I generally don't go above the 1/2 mark on the instant pot liner for the dish
- High pressure for 7 minutes and Quick Release after 5 minutes
- Open pressure cooker and saute down if thicker sauce desired

I love that you can cook sauce ingredients in the IP, then add the pasta and cook it right in there, too...the ultimate one dish meal, one item to clean up, etc.

My 3 qt arrives today...

Maggie

Hi Gloria!

I love my Instant Pot, too. I use it regularly.
I also have a large rice cooker. I have been eyeing the smaller ones because mine is several years old and the built in gasket is starting to come apart.

Hope to see you at Alumalina.
