New to the Instant Pot? Here are some of my top tips:
- Do NOT overfill the Instant Pot! This will cause a huge mess when the recipe is done cooking, or even worse, it won’t cook at all.
- Use a 6 quart or 8 quart Instant Pot. I am not a fan of the smaller 3 quart instant pot, even if you have a small family.
- Don’t forget that the time to cook the recipe is NOT the total time of the recipe. The pot needs to ‘come to pressure’, which usually takes about 10 minutes, before the timer will actually start counting down.
- Purchase some accessories that will help you utilize the instant pot.
- A rack is going to be great to set stuff on in the pot. It will allow you to cook things like potatoes and eggs, without having them touch the water and get mushy.
- An oven safe bowl is great for when you want to use the pot-in pot method to cook 2 things at once (for example potatoes and eggs for potato salad).
- A springform pan is great for making things like meatloaf and cheesecake. Make sure to get a removable trivet with handles and use it under the pan for easy removal of the pan.
