And then unless you release the steam valve (and fill your kitchen with condensation), they take another 15 minutes to cool down before the electronics will permit you to open it.Good for cooking meat to "fall off the bone" tender. But much, much slower than traditional cooking for things such as rice or potatoes


Not really, there is less steam than a saucepan. Only need 250ml of liquid. You can cook foods from frozen, can take 5 mins to come to pressure and if you want fall apart meat wait 10 after cooking to naturally pressure release. It keeps stuff warm after cooking. I own 3 not all this make. Roast meal for 6 on the table in 1 hours from start to plate!

Yes, it's good item, IF

you have big portions to cook.
Big cabinet space to store.
Or happy to keep it on the worktop...

Imho yes. I have one and mainly use it for stews etc. Made soups in it, very quick and easy.
I don't have time to use it to it's full potential.
mmm, i'm gonna be honest. you dont get the depth of flavous that you would do if you cook traditionally. I tried soup and it just wasn't as tasty as when I make it over the stove. Has anyone else found this?
Great product and very versatile, We find it very good for stews, steaming veg, curry’s, even boiling eggs, and no smells in the kitchen either. Also this has a stainless steel pot, most other brands have the coated pots incase you are concerned about chemical leakage into food.

Loved the Idea of these, However everything finished with me boiling off excess liquid so never saved any time or offered any convenience. Good job Costco have a good returns policy.

yes, I’ve thought this also.
I think it is because water doesn’t just boil off and the extra retained water dilutes everything.
A quid saving take my money not!
I've had one for about 6 months now and for me it's been absolutely brilliant and such a time saver. I've also been able to buy cheaper cuts of meat and turn them into amazing dinners. If you are in any doubt about buying then look up an instant pot group on Facebook so you can see for yourselves the things people do with the instant pot.
Someone posted one just like this the other day made by JML £59.99

That’s true, but I find if I add less water than I’m used to adding, it works really well.
I love my instant pot I found it took me a few tries to really get the timings right and just generally figuring out how it cooks. It makes a tasty bone broth for Vietnamese Pho and if you’re feeling adventurous try a recipe for Hainanese chicken I use mine about twice a week and it fits a good amount for a family of 4.

Definitely. I cook a lot of spicy food and have to add extra spice to get the same flavour as the stove top. When I cook chilli con carne I put in so much chillies and also chilli powder and it still isn't hot. I've even used scotch bonnet peppers. Saying that, I have found that I get more flavour when I use my 3L Instant Pot than when doing the same dish using the 5.7L one.

They were actually £92, not £79.99
I’ve got one and use it at least 3 times a week. It’s super convenient.

I found quite the opposite actually - it seems to infuse more flavour into the dish cooking under pressure than slow cooking.

Why would there be extra retained water? You barely have to use any. A piece of incredibly tough beef shin for example can be cooked under pressure with just around 200ml of water. The pressurised steam is what cooks the food, so all you have to do is reduce the water volume of any traditional recipes.

There are some things that I think there is no reason to use an Instant Pot for. A lot of American recipes in particular seem to have no advantage over just using the stove. For cooking tough meats, chillis, base gravies for curries and even for proving bread the IP is really handy though.
We have one somewhere , never used it . My Daughter bought it us so I'll have to keep it for a bit before ditching it
Bought one last week and tried to use it for the first time tonight as a pressure cooker. Followed a simple online recipe for chicken and rice. For some reason unknown to me (possibly not enough liquid but like i said i did follow a recipe) the cooker never built up enough pressure and never got to the countdown stage and burnt the bottom of the pan completely. Hopefully just a teething problem and i just need to get used to it but not the best start.
How does this compare to the Ninja Foodi which is also an Air fryer ?
Got one for Xmas and love it cooked ribs, Thai curries, Indian curries loads of chinese dishes, chicken from frozen and I don’t even think I’ve scratched the surface of what it can do.

Every time someone posts a free kindle book I’m like I’m cooking that .

Its the very definition of a one pot wonder throw it all in and push go. Voted hot.

Sounds like you put much too much liquid in. Pressure cookers need surprisingly little - almost all the liquid you put in is going to stay there while it's under pressure, so it's best to be frugal.

I'd advise anyone who buys something like this to look up recipes designed for pressure cookers and follow them to the letter until they get the feel for how these devices work. They're well worth the effort once you know what you're doing.

I wouldn’t bother cooking rice in it unless you have the non stick base. You need to rinse it very thoroughly to get all the starch off the rice, and even then it’ll often stick. I’d also stay away from chicken, unless you’re using thigh meat.

EVERY meal we eat is now cooked in the instant pot, freshly made and painless. I described my meatball bolognese last night as epic, only one other of my family agreed but the rest said it was excellent.
It's quite good for some types of cooking, but it is oversold because enthusiastic users try to use them for everything.

I'm sure that it saves energy, less condensation and smells.

It's super power is boiling eggs. It's so good for that.
Potatoes come out so fluffy compared to boiling, beef comes out so tender in such a short time. I made chicken Biryani and was so simple and yummy.

Brought one of these so I can cook 2 things at the same time like rice and curry. I brought mine from Aliexpress for £13 because cheapest I've seen in the UK is around £23 +

There’s definitely an enthusiast community, and while people are free to exercise their enthusiasm as they see fit, it does get a bit silly when people are pressure cooking chicken breasts and creating stringy meat that takes longer to cook than it would under a grill.

Absurd as it seems though, boiled eggs are great in the IP - you can cook loads at once and the white comes out really tender.

Then use less liquid, problem solved. It happened to me in the beginning, now I’ve learnt.

It’s daft isn’t it: such a simple mistake and people blame the device because it doesn’t behave the same way as a different cooking method. It’s like taking back a lawnmower because it’s not very good at being a strimmer. I can only imagine that people think pressure cooking works by immersion rather than pressurised steam
