The Galavan –
I use this for everything! How did I live without this before???
I live in a Sprinter van full-time and was using an induction burner for cooking, but since I’ve gotten this little gem, I haven’t used the induction burner once!
This is so easy to use, and it’s the perfect size for one or two people. I’ve been making a lot of stews, and I’ll saute the onions, carrots, and meat (if I’m using meat) then add everything else, seal it, and set it for 7 minutes on high pressure. I let it release naturally and have a perfectly cooked, tasty meal every time. This gives me enough for 4 or 5 servings.
I also quick soaked beans the other day by covering them with water, hitting pressure for 5 min. then letting it release naturally and let it sit (not on keep warm) for a couple of hours.
I’ll often make dinner right after I reheat my lunch, and make sure the keep warm function is on. I’m able to drive with it in my sink and have a hot, healthy, delicious meal waiting for me when I’m done driving.
I’ve even baked banana bread in it!!! So exciting, because I don’t have an oven. It turned out SO good! I used one of the containers and the lid from my To-Go Ware stainless steel lunch container to bake it in on the rack.
Because this cooks so quickly, it is very easy on my solar system. I can reheat leftovers on saute in 4 minutes, and it’s only drawing 67a while it’s on.
I did have a VitaClay, that I absolutely loved for making beans, and especially bone broth, but it takes much longer to cook and is heavier. So, more battery drain, more storage space, and more weight as compared to the Instant Pot Mini and the Mini wins on each count!
UPDATED – So I finally got the 6QT and oh. my. g… – so wonderful! Such a relief! I can cook 5 lbs of frozen chicken in ONE cycle and have food for my dog for the next week! Yay! And last night I finally made that famous “soccer mom spaghetti” (dump a box of pasta, one jar of sauce, a bag of frozen meatballs plus a jar of water in the pot then push a button) and – perfect. I made this same thing in the 3qt about a few times and it never came out right – first the pasta didn’t cook, next time the sauce was too watery, etc. With the 6QT – cooked perfectly! And I have FIVE portions of leftovers instead of the 1-2 I had with the smaller I.P.
To put the 3qt vs 6qt in perspective: the 3qt pot does not actually cook 3 quarts because you can’t fill it all the way to the top. There’s a line that’s oh, an inch or two below the lip that’s the Max Fill line, because the pressure cooker needs extra room to do its thing. Then, if you’re adding the trivet, you’re losing another inch of space. So really your cooking space is more like 2 quarts, like a small sauce pan.
Imagine you’re cooking ALL of your meals with nothing bigger than a sauce pan.
I’ve been using the 6 qt IP, but always had way too much food left over. I bought the 3 qt mini for use in our camping trailer. However, I ended up dragging it home and using it there. It’s a perfect size for just the wife and myself. Things have gotten to the point that my wife says, “I don’t want to cook. Pull out the little pot (IP mini) and make dinner (spaghetti, soup, whatever).” My fault for becoming proficient with the use of the Instant Pots. When we have company to dinner, I use the 6 qt. IP. I love it! Just had to order a stainless 3 qt. liner pot for it (with a silicon lid) in case I need to put something in it in the refrigerator … or use it to cook something separately.
I was loving my instant pot, bragging to all about it. Making my dogs food was so easy! I put in the food and the water, pressed pressure cook and like magic it was just done when it beeped. Getting used to the pressurization wasn’t hard at all. It wasn’t really difficult to use.
Until last week… My pot just didn’t turn on! I tried other outlets and other electronics so it was not the outlet. I moved the pot to a different outlet, nothing. It was the pot. The manual gave explicit troubleshooting directions based on what is wrong. Not turning on meant that the circuit board blew and it advised to call support, which I did. When you call, an automated message tells you to go online and put in a ticket- because this is clearly a company that doesn’t want to be bothered ‘talking’ to their customers. So I do this. A day later no response! So I email again asking for help. This time I email them the same information. Didn’t hear from them until Friday! I needed my pot fixed on Tuesday…. On Thursday though I had had enough and called Amazon who thankfully knows how to treat customers and were able to refund me the product and I shipped it back to them. The pot was less than a year of purchase and within warranty after all! Even Amazon tried getting ahold of the company and they couldn’t get a response!
Beware of this brand! I would look for another pressure cooker because when it breaks, and it likely will, you won’t be getting help for days….
My first attempt to post this review Amazon blocked for an unknown reason. It should be posted though people should know what kind of company this is…
Help Me, Help You! –
The Instant Pot Has Seriously Changed My Life. It has no doubt cut down my food expenses (cutting down take-out and product waste) but has also renewed my passion for cooking! I was tired of dry over cooked meat and hours of standing in the kitchen trying to simmer cook meals for flavour. I work long hours and can’t devote an entire day to meal prep, so being able to come home and make a one pot meal in 10 minutes with veggies, protein, and my starch all at once has been life changing! You can cook meat from frozen states in minutes with no need to even defrost! I can cook two juicy and tender chicken breasts fully in 5-6 minutes!
So Here Are My Favourite Features Of The Instant Pot DUO Series:
Diego Eduardo Palencia Aguilar –
Me encuentro en Mexico , me encanto el producto, le di bastante uso, segui las instrucciones correctas de funcionamiento hasta que un dia simplemente ya no encendio.
inmediatamente me contacte al servicio tecnico y desgraciadamente no hacen valida la garantia en Mexico
mi pregunta es..
¿Por que venden un producto que no tiene garantia?
mucha falta de profesionalismo
Compre la Instant Pot (IP) después de escuchar muchas opiniones de mis amigas diciéndome que tenía que tener una. Yo era una persona 100% satisfecha con mi slow cooker, pero por razones varias tuve que venderla. Después de 7 meses me decidí a comprar la IP. Soy una persona joven que no tiene demasiada experiencia cocinando. Hice muchos experimentos para acostumbrarme al uso y explorar todas las opciones.
Prueba 1: Caldo de pollo (Opción: Slow cook). Hice las mismas caldos y sopas que hacía en mi slow cooker. Me pareció muy cómodo que podía programar un tiempo para cocinar y después solo mantendría tibia la comida.
Prueba 2: Arroz blanco (Opción: Rice). Decidí incursionar a las funciones con presión y hacer arroz con la opción predeterminada. Fue un éxito rotundo. El arroz estaba esponjoso y suave. Nada se pegó en el fondo de la olla.
