Jacque, you should do a real vlog on YouTube, maybe a dessert/food one!

I am buying one from a friend that has two. She got one for herself and then she won one in a drawing, so I told her I would buy one from her! I’m looking forward to receiving it and put it to good use.

I’ve heard a lot about them lately but have no idea what I’d do with one, so I’m excited to hear what others have to say about it. Let us know what you think, once you try it out, Jacque!

I am looking forward to seeing your posts on this. It is just me and my husband and based on your info I just might have to get one!

Could someone explain what an Instant Pot even is? Is it basically an electric pressure cooker? I know people seem to love them but I’m clueless about them and the benefits of using them. – Clueless in Florida 😬
PS is it like a crockpot??

It’s like a crock pot and a pressure cooker had a baby! 🤣 You can also sauté in it and prep everything before it cooks. I found a beef stew recipe where you brown the meat in it and then add everything else and it’s finished in 50 minutes!!! I’m still learning more as I study up before it gets here!!! 🙂

Wow! No wonder everybody is getting one!

I love to cook a 6 lb whole chicken. Season with favorite seasonings. Inside and out. Place on rack in pot. Add 1 cup water or chicken broth. Cook on high for 45 minutes with natural release. It will be falling off the bones.
