I think I’m going to buy the instant duo Plus 5.7L version there is one for sale 5 mins walking distance from me, still in boxed never used unwanted wedding gift. She wanted 90£ we agreed on 65 which seems like a good price brand new boxed. Duo plus looks much better than the older versions. Should be more than enough for my needs. How is yours holding up ? Any issues ever or working well ?
Not sure what you are planning with steamed fried crispy potato slices. A pressure cooker isn't going to turn something you are steaming... And cooking things "together"... Perhaps you mean using a steaming basket with dividers or plural baskets - both should be possible. My suggestion is that you find online and download a manual for whatever model you might be interested in, and have a read through before purchase. All the Instant Pots have quite a wide pan and consequently a fairly large minimum required quantity of liquid for pressure cooking. That's the best way to get proper answers to your questions.
If so I am peeved that that one isn't available online!
That's very helpful thank you I'm going to use mostly for steaming veg, legumes, crispy potato slices that I currently cook on a frying pan, The potato slices take 25 mins but I have to stand over them to turn every 5 mins to make sure nothing burns. Same with the veg In pan that I have to keep mixing. From your experience is there any options that will do the potatoes & veg together. What do you think of the instant pot duo 6L version, im cooking for one maximum two most evenings I recently finished a 7 day water fast then decided to go 80 percent plant based diet resulting in me spending way more time in the kitchen so hence why I want to get the pressure cooker.
for the smaller size (5.7L)
