I’m so cheap it’s not even funny.
My crockpot broke, so I decided to try this as it was the same price as a large crockpot.
I regret NOTHING.
I can make rice in minutes
Eggs have never been easier to peel
Bone broth doesn’t take DAYS
IT EVEN MAKES CHEESECAKE.

I tried hard boiled eggs first and this alone has changed my life. No more eggs that look like craters on the moon and no grey yolk edges that indicate overcooking. Then I did steel cut oats in a fraction of the time, so healthy and so very delicious. Then I went for the entree meal and found what forums professed to be the best Butter Chicken recipe out there, and it did not disappoint! The wonderful spice and food aromas that swirl around you will be enough to let you know that you jumped onto the right band wagon but it’s the taste of freshness and flavor and tenderness that will keep you searching for your next favorite recipe to accomplish!
If you are on the fence about purchasing an Instant Pot, I am here to tell you that you won’t be disappointed. I’m already trying to determine what my second one will be – should I go for an 8 qt variety or add one that does yogurt….decisions….decisions! Pull the trigger, buy your Instant Pot soon!

Ok. I held out for a VERY long time thinking I did not need another gadget in the kitchen. But then my crock pot started to go haywire and the price was right, so…here we are.
I read the manual, washed the pot, and ran a test run-it is far more user-friendly than I anticipated. Once you get a hang of the buttons, it’s easy.
Then I immediately made an Indian butter chicken recipe with boneless chicken thighs that cooked in less than 30 mins. It was great!!! Then I made a quick 1 pot potato salad by steaming eggs and diced potatoes-which was also great! The eggs cooked perfectly and peeled better than any eggs I ever boiled on the stove (yes I tried the vinegar trick, too). Steaming eggs seems to be a thing now, and pressure cooking eggs heats them faster than other methods which reduces the “stick” of the shell/lining. Very cool.
It does not take a long time to seal that I’ve noticed (less than 5 mins), but if you have ANY liquid in the top rim it will not seal at all. Make sure if you are sautéing and then pressure cooking that the rim is dry. Also, the steam rack has large grating- my potatoes fell through it and didn’t drain well after cooking-I had to bust out the strainer. I may invest in a smaller adjustable steamer basket for easier lift-out draining.. It does take a while to de-compress…about 10-15 mins, so add that to your total time if you want an accurate estimate of how long it will take to cook dinner. You can shorten it by just hitting the release valve-but NOT if you have broth/soup as it will splatter everywhere through the hole.
It sets itself to warm when the timer is done, you can manually adjust the timer to fit your preferences and outside recipes…
Overall, for this price, it’s really great and if you’re going to spend the $ on a crock pot then just get a bigger, better multi-tasker instead. Worth it.
I don’t regret the decision because I’m not interested in making yogurt. It has worked perfectly for me.
Aside from basic meals, soups, stews, steamed veggies and meat or veggie stocks.
I’ve also made a lot of cheesecakes in the LUX60 initially with a 7 inch spring form pan.
I’ve learned that a (sturdy) 8 inch USA Cake Pan will fit (snugly) in the LUX60.
The 7 inch spring form pan failed after only 3 uses and was returned.
I started researching everything about it including watching YouTube videos of others preparing amazing dishes. The first meal I made was one of the first videos I watched.
When I researched the pot itself I read first the single star critiques, weighing them against the 3 and 4 stars. I made a decision.
One of the 1 Star reviews illustrated a spewing pressure released Instant Pot (after a 20 minute natural release method.) I had the same thing happen my first cook and realized my issue wasn’t the pot itself but the quantity of fluid I was using and the meal had manifested needed a longer NR period, (30-35min). Now if I needed an immediate release I would use a tea towel to cover the unit from spraying my kitchen with food steam.
I have never imagined making baby back ribs in 32mins (plus 25min natural release) and 5mins under the broiler. (to caramelize the BBQ) and have the meat fall away from the bone.
Or could I have imagined preparing a pot roast and serving it in under an hour without a knife.
I made a delicious gravy within the same pot by simply switching the pot to sautÃª.
I never considered stuffing peppers with raw ingredients before and having them completed in 12mins (NR : 30mins). My 6qt accommodated 4 peppers.
Make your decision as I have done by including a few YouTube videos. “The truth is in the pudding”.
