Other than hardboiled eggs (one layer of eggs on the rack, 1 cup of water, high pressure for 5 minutes, about 5 minutes of natural steam release and then quick release, plunge into ice water and peel immediately), this is my favorite IP recipe.

That's exactly what I think every time I see the headline.

But is the Instant Pot used to treat the munchies produced by instant pot?

You weren't. I thought it was some kind of MJ coffee.

I have heard our U. K. friends say they bring "pot plants" as gifts. Indeed!

I had not heard of the Instant Pot myself until recently, but didn't make that association until you guys mentioned it now. Then again, living in WA, I wasn't fazed earlier today realizing a new shop readying for opening as I passed is to be a (non medical) cannabis emporium.

Back to the IP. I bought one a year ago. I love it! I made a fantastic tomato sauce for lasagna tonight. I used the saute function to brown onions and other veggies and then added the tomatoes and spices and seasoning and cooked on manual for about 40 minutes. I used it for beef rendang. I do brown meat in a large frying pan to save time but then the stew function slow cooks meats perfectly. I sauted the sauce down after cooking. It's fast. I don't know of anyone's whose IP exploded.

Having now welcomed this thread from its former home in OMNI, I have removed off-topic posts that were trending towards OMNI/PR topics.

Those interested in this thread might also find this comparison thread helpful:

I also came to a rice cooker late in life, and this is the best thing ever. Of course, I can make rice in a regular pot, but it's less work if I throw everything in the rice pot while the rest of the meal is being prepared.

Not so. I think the Instant Pot does very well at cooking rice of all kinds. I've used it for white rice (a 1-button operation with the "Rice" function), and with the right settings, found with some experimentation, have got excellent results with brown rice, wild rice, and "quick" (scarified) brown rice. You can certainly retire a standard rice cooker if you get an Instant Pot. (That said, I admit I don't know what a Zojirushi is capable of in cooking rice.)

I cook for 1 and use my IP all the time. I love it. I always make enough for leftovers and make shredded chicken and bone broth weekly.

Last year, I bought my first crockpot, after a similar number of years without one. Used it a handful of times and decided none of my usual recipes (modified for the crockpot) turned out as well as they did on the stove.

The crockpot now sits in a cabinet taking up very valuable space in my small Manhattan kitchen. I'll probably give it one more shot before getting rid of it.
