Re: Instant Pot

I have had my instapot for more than a year now and have used it more for pressure cooking.
The beauty of the instapot is setting the timer and you can forget all about monitoring it, I have burnt a few of my stove top pressure cookers as my evening routine with 2 kids is pretty packed.
No time to hover and wait for pressure releases and switch it off.
You can stack bowls/dishes and cook 2-3 different things. I normally cook rice, quiona , lentils, eggs, steam vegetables, soups and of course curries. Fermenting is dream (yogurt, batter, dough).
I tried pasta and ebly and they came out really nice but I still donít use it for Pasta.
Cooking chickpeas or any dry lentils is a dream, soak and set a timer for 6 hours and cook for 5 mins (under pressure) and it is done, I do this overnight or before I leave for work.
Takes a while to master the water/time ratio and once you have it figured, it is a dream.
