I love mine - I use it for beans, applesauce (for baking) and kids, rice, grains etc. I like not having to soak my beans overnight and I have used frozen meats in it for the meat eaters in house. However, I opted for the cuisinart digital pressure cooker (60 bucks was more my price range). Still has a timer, and all the same settings as the 'instant pot'. Good luck!

Generally 3 times as much water as beans.

If beans have not been soaked, multiply times x 2.5.

Good morning. I have a pressure cooker too but have never used it. I have dried beans that I would like to cook in it, but don't know to. Could you tell me how much water and minutes to cook?

I have no idea what an instant pot is but I have had an electric pressure cooker for 5 years.
I get a lot of use of it, maybe average 3 times a week. Rice and other grains, beans, occasionally soup. Convenient, reliable, does a good job, saves time. I love the timer function.
Highly recommended...dollar for dollar this is the most useful kitchen gadget I have ever bought.

Thank you! I will look into her and her recipes.

You might be interested in looking into chefaj.com. She is a vegan chef who uses her instant pot almost every day. And she loves it! She has also been vegan for about 30 years. Hope this helps!

A lot of my facebook friends seem to be obsessed with the growing trend of the Instant Pot. I don't have one but I was wondering about them. However, all the recipes I see are mostly meat dishes. I was curious if any other vegetarians had an Instant Pot. I saw there were some recipes and books on amazon and pinterest. I just don't know if it's worth it.
I already have the Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker and their Rockcrok, which cooks things quicker but it goes in the mircowave. I've never used a pressure cooker like an Instant Pot.

Any advice or thoughts on them?
