It is just me and hubby and I use it at least 3 times a week and making the yogurt is so easy and is way better tasting than store bought.
    I usually buy plain nonfat Dannon yogurt...can you make non fat yogurt in the instant pot? Wondering what ingredients do you use to make yogurt?

    I have seen them at Amazon for $99 for the duo...maybe Black Friday might beat that. I prefer to buy local in case it doesn't meet my expectations, and it is easier to return that way.

    I do believe the stove top pressure cooker is faster than the electric ones.
    For example, I put a roast in and it took almost 2 hours before it was tender. The book said something like 25 minutes. I took it out and it was still bloody inside. For a pot roast!
    I could do that in my stovetop pressure cooker in 30 minutes or so.
    Modern pressure cookers are so foolproof, they are very safe and yes, you do have to adjust the burner to keep the jiggle at the right tempo, but there isn't much to that.
    One thing I've found that the Instant Pot is great at is, of all things, risotto. No more stirring for 30 minutes. I was impressed. And I'm a chef!
    I think the Instant Pot definitely has its place but the stove top pressure cooker can still be useful, too.

    I made this last night. It was the second time I've made it. Came out perfect both times.

    I don't care for slow cook mode in the Instant Pot.It doesn't heat all around the container,just from the bottom.Not sure if that is the difference,but don't see many posts using slow cook mode.

    I don't know if you use Facebook, but, if you do, there is an Instant Pot Community that has a lot of good information. some people like the slow cook function but many have just adapted their slow cook recipes to the Instant Pot. Of course not all recipes will convert, I don't think, but many will. I have only had my Instant Pot since mid December, but haven't used the crockpot since then.

    What is the difference between this one: http://instantpot.com/
    and
    this one? (I have this one): https://www.cuisinart.com/products/s...ances/cpc-600/

    Mine sautes, has a slow cooking mode (simmer) and is programmable. I wouldn't leave raw meat in mine for hours when using the programmable timer. Seems very dangerous and invites germs and other icky things to the table.

    I usually use my pressure cooker for spaghetti sauce and making my own stocks for soup bases.

    Probably similar to a Honda vs Nissan. Same idea, different features. the Instant Pot has a stainless steel liner. Amazingly it is very easy to clean.

    I love the stainless steel liner feature. And yes, it is very easy to clean. Much lighter then a 'crock'.
