    The Pot itself is very nice if you catch it on a good sale would not pay full price for this. Not crazy about a teflon pot but it is super easy to clean. somethings to stick a little to bottom but wipe right out if you clean right after. You do need mits of some kind that inner pot stays very hot. I bought as a starter appliance for my daughter who had a 3 hour commute daily into and out of Nashville hoping that it will help her get some good nutritious meals instead of take out all the time. I had her bring this home for thanksgiving so I could test it out and help her learn to use it. I cooked a few things in it over the holidays. Was a very fast way to do mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes. Thinking this takes a good deal of trial and error to get things right on other things. There are some things they don't explain about cooking with pressure, like it takes 15 min of time to build pressure before cooking time and about 10 for quick release of pressure and 30 for slow release afterwards so that significantly increases cooking times. That said slow cooking times for old slow cookers are blown away by pressure cooking and for me this is definitely worth that. You will need to still utilize other cooking methods along side this to get dinner on table all at same time and hot. So this doesn't replace other methods and it does not crisp like an air fryer. One thing I tried and didn't get right was acorn squash soup. Took 2 tries to get squash cooked was not super soft even after second time. so 15 to build 20 to cook 10 to release... 15 to build 10 more to cook and 10 to release we are up to and hour and 10 min then the product is mushy squash you have to scoop and then puree if you have a blender.. I had to transfer to a mixer whip and the put back in pot to heat by back up to serve. But a lot of this may be me not knowing best way. This pot has 3 recipes in tiny manual so you are on your own to learn. All that said I would do again. I am a leary as to if my daughter will take the time to learn the inis and oouts of it.

    Great Pot; Instruction Booklet Not So Great

    Posted

    My rating should have been five stars on the pot itself, but I had to lower the rating because of the lack of actually user information in the manual. I have always used on-the-stove pressure cookers (in fact, have three) and decided that I would like an electric pressure cooker, especially when I found out that it had so many other uses than my other pressure cookers. I ordered the Insignia after doing much research and I am extremely pleased with it. I have used it every couple days, and sometimes twice a day, as I love the way my rice comes out. My only complaint with my purchase is the manual that came with it; it has all the safety warnings, but not much about actually using the pot. So, I found many recipes online and checked out a couple recipe books at the library. I then went to Amazon and bought many accessories that I felt I needed, especially the extra silicone gaskets. I’m even planning on making some Greek yogurt! Needless to say, I am very pleased with this pot and I love it!

    I purchased the Insignia 6qt pressure cooker to have a second one on hand for the holidays. I also have a 6qt Instant pot and wanted to purchase something that functions pretty much the same without the cost. It is so similar to the Instant pot that I was able to take it out of the box and use it immediately. Thus far it has performed just as well as the Instant pot. The Insignia 6 qt does not have a yogurt function like the Instant pot does if that is important for you to have. There is also not a lid rest. You have to remove your lid and lay it on the counter top. The Instant pot does have a lid rest that I do use a lot. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. If I happen to wear out one of the pressure cookers I think my next purchase would be the Insignia 8 quart.

    I purchased this to give it a try because I heard good things from friends about instant pot. After trying it, I was very pleased and then purchased the 3qt version of the instant pot for daily use. I find that I have to add 5 to 10 min to the recipies with this model. I believe it's due to the fact that this one has a non stick pot where instant pot is stainless steel. This one is easier to clean but instant pot cooks faster. That's the only real difference I see. It's a good buy if you don't mind adding a little extra cooking time.

    Pressure Cooker

    Thought I was getting an *out of this world* deal because when advertised it said the regular price was $99 and sale was $29. I got to the store and the price tag on the shelves was $49.99. I still decided to buy because it was still a $20 savings. My one complaint is the pressure cooker booklet should have had better directions. How long to cook certain lbs. of meat. It just had terms like normal. Normal for a family of 10 may be different from a family of two.

    Decent Pressure Cooker

    The cooker itself is good. I truly like the ease of using it. The instructions, however, are minimal, so make sure you pay attention to how you remove the gasket and how you remove the steam release nozzle. The lid dings for open and closing, which is great. The release nozzle doesn't "fit" or click into place. It is held into place by the pressure. That would be a great thing to note in the manual. Great beginner pot. Perfect for couples or a small family.

    Loving my pressure cooker & bought it for a great, one day online deal...I'm not a good cook & this makes cooking so much easier. I do not like standing over a stove, which is a great reason to get one of these. Makes meals a lot faster than a crock pot but you can throw food in like a crock pot. Con- Manuel is not very informative...Advise you to join Pressure Cooker online groups to learn tips/tricks or watch Youtube videos.

    I am impressed by the quality I am seeing upon opening this item. It appears VERY similar to Instant Pot. In fact, I noticed that the previous Insignia model, now discontinued, also looked VERY similar to another Instant Pot model. Regardless, I am excited that this Insignia model offers 3 pressure levels, many programs, and several customization options. I hope it serves me well for many years to come!!

    I'm used to regular pressure cookers. This one is a good replacement for a gas pressure cooker with additional features of delayed timer and one pot cleaning. I have cooked vegitables like yams and potatoes. I have cooked Dal and rice at the same time using a container. I am satisfied with my purchase

    This pressure cooker is identical to the instant pot the only difference is the inside container isn't stainless steel it's a Teflon non-stick material so you just have to be a little more careful if you use metal tools other than that that's the only reason I gave it a four star

    Purchased this upgrade model after buying smaller model several months ago. Love the units added features I am learning to use, but on my own with outside information. That is because the owners manual is the WORST manual for almost anything I have ever purchased. Seriously, someone needs to redo and explain how to use, IN THE MANUAL!

    I already had one pressure cooker and my wife loves it. So we got a second one so we can cook rice while we use the other one for meat and vegetables. This one is non stick instead of stainless steal, so it’s only going to be used to cook rice, soup and similar items.

    We bought this pressure cooker. And so far so good. We haven’t experience any issues with it. It cooks amazingly!!! Worth the buy and very easy to use. We put some chicken in it and it was done in 15 minutes. The chicken fell off the bone!!!

    The only negative thing I can say about this product, is that it didn't come with much as far as instructions and/or recipes... But a simple search and you're good to go. Healthy eating just got a little easier.

    This pressure cooker makes cooking fun again. It's like having six different machines in one. Since I have little to no storage space for a bunch of machines this is great to have

    I have used this cooker for about 3 months. It works great but if you are looking to cook rice with it you will not get what you want. Otherwise, it is great...

    nice basic multi function pressure cooker has many features for a basic unit and there are better pressure cookers but on sale a good choice for easy multi function options on a single cooker.

    I have cooked several things with my multi-cooker and the food came out great. The only disappointment is it did not come with a cook book. That is why I gave it 4 stars.
