Instant Pot?



Recommended Posts

I've heard good things about the Instant Pot and am thinking of getting one. There are just 2 of us at home. Should I get the 6 quart or 3 quart? If we want to cook a roast is the bigger size better? Any tips or advice?

Thanks!

I just unboxed my 6qt instant pot tonight. Household of 3. Haven’t used it yet but it looks pretty! :)

Get the bigger one! We have the smaller one and unfortunately found out it can’t fit a whole chicken.

Also- I love ours! We use it a few times a week.

Santa 🎅since I am rapidly losing down my Pot Gut may I have an🎁 Instapot,for🎄 Christmas. Yes Santa there may be only 2 in our Family but my Bari- Friends say the 6 quart size is much better. I missed the Black Friday sales so I'm counting on you to make every Thing right. Your Hopeful Friend Frustr8😛

Family of 4. We got the 6qt and it was perfect! It is a lifesaver for quick yet quality meals for full-time busy families. My husband and I both work full time and I go to college full time and our children are ages 10 and 7, both boys. So I have plenty of appetites to fill and the instant pot makes me like the perfect 1960s mom with a roast hot on the table by dinner time when she got off work at 3 in the afternoon.

Is this like a pressure cooker? I have had one of those for years (still in the box - never used it - lol). You all have made me want this but if I buy one more gadget I don’t use I think my husband might divorce me!! 😁

For those not willing to wait for Santa, Kohl's has a code for 25% off plus you get Kohl's cash to use later. The code is HOLIDAY25. I just ordered an air fryer oven and got a great price on it. Now I have to return the one I bought from Bed, Bath and Beyond on Monday. I already have a 6 qt Instant Pot and love it!

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
