Your “User Manual” and “Tips and Tricks” links are broken…

[MOD: fixed. TY]



With some active culture yogurt and milk/cream/half & half, and a little temperature you can make as much yogurt as you want. Or 6 quarts of it, in this case.



@ flared0ne Links now fixed. Thanks for the catch.

We love our Instant Pot (we have the Ultra 6-quart, but they are all essentially the same). You can also braise in it, which is a nice feature to have. It will replace both a pressure cooker as well as a crock-pot if you are tight on space.

It is essentially an electric pressure cooker, and for those of you who weren’t lucky enough to grow up in the middle of the 20th Century (when pressure cookers were popular) these things can be a real eye-opener and a great tool in your kitchen arsenal. As for recipes, just add the words “instant pot” in front of almost anything you want to cook and there are usually hundreds to choose from online for each. I use ours to cook a rack of pork ribs then crisp them up under the oven broiler for a few minutes - great for those days I don’t or can’t bother with the grill out back.

All that said, the Woot price isn’t all that great. The mothership has the 9-in-1 Duo (newer?) for only a dollar more. Oddly enough, they still have the 7-in-one version available but for $99. I can’t explain it either…


We got one from the mothership and tossed in about a month for a better brand. It shut down from overheating, scorched the base and was basically junk.

I’d suggest a better brand, but names are stuck on these things so fast you can’t keep up. Do NOT expect parts or service from any of them, they are disposables.

You might consider a real stovetop pressure cooker of you are more interested in long time use.

Yes! My wife makes it all the time.

Also pretty sure she made home made vanilla.

We used our Instant Pot for a few years and got an error code (it was common). We contacted them and even though I’m pretty sure it was out of warranty, they sent us a replacement.
I’m surprised you had an issue. Did you contact the manufacturer at all?

Edit: I had COVID when I wrote this, so I did a really bad job of proofreading the voice to text.

Mine is 5 years old, no issues. The inner pot is good quality,; no dents after quite a few drops on the tile floor.

I’ve got 4 of these in different sizes. The oldest is at least 5 years old and i use it the most. Its the older edition of today’s offering. I use them all and have had zero problems. The Instantpot company provides outstanding service. This is not a particularly bargain price although it’s not bad

Discovered how easy it is to make potato salad in mine. Cut up the potatoes into small pieces (1 inch cubes or a bit bigger), add a couple of cups of water and put eggs on top of the potatoes (in the shells), cook for 4 minutes and both are done perfectly. The egg shells peel in 2 pieces, easiest ever!

Probably my most used appliance, very versatile and quick.

Today I saw the 11 in 1 version of this which includes the air fryer lid for $49.99 at BJs wholesale club if you’re on the east coast. It was $60 off regular price.

Saw a tip today for those hard-boiled eggs - AFTER boiling it, wrap a piece of tape NOT quite all the way around an egg; tap the shell several times to break it; pull the tape off, and the shell comes off too.
