Instant Pot Feed Back
 
Does anyone have or know someone with an Instant Pot? It's a multi cooker 7in 1 slow cooker, pressure cooker and some other things in one. The reviews online seem pretty good. And I like the pressure cooker idea for quick meals. I've been thinking about picking up a small 6qt one down the line, maybe Black Friday deal.

I have a couple friends that have them. Consensus is it's worth picking up.

Wife wouldn't trade hers for the world. Get the biggest one.

Don't know much about the Instant Pot electric pressure cooker, but I can say that I find my Fagor stovetop pressure cooker to be indispensable for the things I use it for.

We have an Instant Pot -- or my wife does :)

She loves it! Everything she's made has come out really good. I would recommend it, and Amazon has them on sale periodically.

Thank you all! Almost grabbed the 6qt one from Target, thought they were on sale, but no. I don't mind waiting for a sale.

That's regular price for that model. And the shipping is free. You have to join Prime to get the faster shipping or pay.

Using camelcamelcamel it shows the lowest it has been was $69. I know a whopping $10 but it helps.

Take it from someone that thought the gravy train would never end, I learned (the hard way) that $10 can be a lot of money.

Sorry all, I thought that Mssr. Bonjing felt that Target's regular $99 price was too high so I referenced amazon's $79 price with free shipping, of course contingent on one's having been foolish enough to have joined the Prime program.

Shame on me. Lesson taught and apprehended. Adiós and buena suerte á todos.

My sister just got it. She's been using it non-stop.

We have one and it gets a ton of use.
Get the bigger one.

Mike and CoolPuff, you guys are recommending the 8qt, correct? The only reason I can see getting the 8qt is that you can only fill up to 1/2 or 2/3 when using the pressure cooking option, is that correct?

Is that the reason for the recommendation? I can kind of see why the 8qt would be more handy as cooking something like ox tail soup plus liquid doesn't leave much room in the pot for anything else.

We got the smaller one, even though I really wanted to get the bigger one. Have not had any issues...

How many will you usually be cooking for? I can't say as to why the bigger one but my wife is always saying she wishes she had the big one, either way they cook very fast and tasty meals.

Basically just me, the better half and grandfather. I'm trying not to be a fatboy anymore so I'm hoping not to cook in major bulk anymore and just make meals day to day.
