OK, so it's been nearly six months since many of you purchased an Instant Pot during the Black Friday sales.

I'd like your reviews - I hear a lot of love for these Instant Pots, but two things I really, really want to know are:

1) Has this been the workhorse that you dreamed it would be? Has it earned a permanent space on the countertop?

2) How many times a week are you using the Instant Pot? Are you using it more mainly meal-by-meal, or have you incorporated it into any weekly menu prepping?


Peace

I use mine about twice a week. I will probably use it more in the summer as we do not have air conditioning and the oven is HOT.

I love it, it cooks things fast and meat is juicy.

Yes, it is a workhorse, even though I don't use it as much as larger families, because there are only two of us living here. Smile It has a definite home (not counterspace, because I store it elsewhere, lol).

I use it at least once a week, sometimes more. I try to plan meals around it, in addition things like cooking 24 eggs at a time for deviled eggs for a crowd, or four cheesecakes in two days for a special event.

Interesting that you mention cooking for such a small crowd...that's partly what I'm curious about...if it would pay for itself with a small family. If it can help meal prep for the week, it would be more valuable to me than quickening dinner now and then.

Mostly it's just Mr. Ellie and me. Smile

I don't have an Instant Pot but remembered this post when I saw this! It's a recipe book, free for kindle readers right now.

I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. ~Phil 3:13-14~

I use mine on a regular basis Smile I have been very happy with it. My favorite is venison because it comes out falling apart tender. I do a lot of chicken too. And of course there are the hard boiled eggs Very Happy

"When Your Homeschool Doesn't Turn Out the Way You Thought It Would ..." ... "We began homeschooling more than nine years ago, all learning together. I was nervous, but happy to be with our kids. I knew I wanted to be home with them more then anything else. Our scholastic progress was obvious at once and we hoped this would be the beginning of our dreams to offer our children an outstanding academic experience. However, in our enthusiasm we underestimated the principle component of child rearing: character training."
