    Good thing it was inexpensive

    I wait until I've had something a few months before I write a review. In this case, I've had this Insignia pot for four months. It's ok but not great and here's why: 1) as most reviewers noted, the instructions that come with it are just awful. You can try to use the competitor, InstantPot's, instructions but they aren't identical equipment. Trial and error is needed. I shouldn't have to create my own user manual! 2) it is relatively small inside for the overall size outside. It takes up a good deal of room in the cupboard or on a shelf! 3) the sear function doesn't evenly brown the meat - the pot has a slight crown to so any oil added before searing the meat flows outward around the outer ring of the pot. The middle of the roast doesn't brown as much. In summary, even at the heavily discounted price I purchased this for, I probably wouldn't buy it again. As the saying goes, "the view isn't worth the climb" on this one!

    I just haven’t decided how much i like this . I thought It was great but then the more i use it I’m finding it’s not as good as my instant pot. It seems to heat up fast but desserts and some meats, like a meatloaf, takes considerable longer to cook. At this point i wish I had bought another IP

    I was disappointed in the size and weight of this multi-function cooker, I was expecting something similar in size and weight to a crockpot, but this cooker was larger and heavier and wouldn't have held anywhere near as much. I returned it unused.

    Had this for a little over a year and the steam release valve broke. It never worked quite right in the first place. Only used the cooker maybe 5 times. Buy a better brand.

    Not a true pressure cooker

    This unit cannot be programmed for a specific time. It only uses standard times for certain foods and cannot be adjusted for any variations. I sent it back.
