    My wife took it out of the box on Christmas Day and hasn’t stopped using it. It is not much faster than her regular cooking BUT she can put everything in and walk away. It is very easy to clean and use. The VIVA has many features that she hasn’t used yet but looks forward to. It was a great value for our money. She keeps it on the counter all the time, which means it is as important as the coffee maker!

    Lives up to the hype

    Bought this for my wife for Christmas and she loves it. Makes cooking much easier and definitely a lot faster. She cooks a lot of crockpot meals and this not only replaces it but also simplifies the process. The manual is well laid out and easy to understand which helps because it can be intimidating with all the options it has. So far everything we’ve cooked in it has come out delicious. My only complaint would be the time it takes to pressurize but considering the size of it, how quickly it actually cooks and how well the food tastes, it’s a fair trade off. She’s excited again about cooking thanks to this little piece of heaven. If you’re debating on getting one make the jump. You won’t be disappointed.

    Love this machine! Just got this a few hours ago. I decided to make chicken noodles. I took out 2 large frozen breast and tossed them in the cooker at 14 minutes pressure cook. I also tossed in salary, onions and all the ingredients-knorr chicken broth powder, ground cumin, sea salt, pepper and garlic powder. After it cooked for 14 minutes I added the noodles and set the pressure mode for about 5 minutes. Well, my wife and kids agreed that it was their best chicken noodle experience to date! Lol. We love it!

    This is my first pressure cooker and instant pot, had never used one as well so i was hesitant to purchase. I have been using this pot in replacement of the conventional stove and it proves to be easy to use and I love that you can use this pot to saute as well. Although there are a lot of functions, I have not able to use of them just because I have not tried it for any of my regular food recipes. I love making soup using this pot. It's a great item to use if you want to deal away with too many pots and pans. I use this for my regular cooking while I use an airfryer for anything that I need to fry. It was already late that I saw that another model can be converted to airfryer. At anyrate I now only have two items in my kitchen. The only con I see is you have to buy the accessories separately i.e. steamer basket, tongs etc which I believed should have been disclosed and should have been included the basic ones. If you are to cook many types of food at a given time, I recommend buying an extra inner pot so you can continue using the instant pot without downtime.

    I tried a different brand of this appliance and really appreciate the convenience electric programmable pressure cookers offer. I love many things about this pressure cooker over the other brand. For one, the stainless steel inner pot, which contains no aluminum or harmful teflon coating and cleans easily. Best of all, the inner pot is actually replaceable should it become damaged somehow. The Sous Vide feature is one I am not familiar with but will certainly have fun learning how to use it.

    Cook a Perfect Meal With Less Effort

    The pressure cooker has come a long way since its days as a stovetop vessel that relies on steam to cook food under pressure. It's an effective and efficient way to cook food, but the vessel comes with risks if not handled properly. Things go bad very quickly when the pressure valve isn't released all the way before opening the lid. If you avoided using a pressure cooker for this very reason, you're not alone. The good news is, technology has created a whole new way of pressure cooking. Cook your food fast, with less energy use, and get the most out of your ingredients with more nutrients and flavor retained. Prepare your ingredients, place them in the cooker, and follow the instructions for timing and settings. Electronics monitor the temperature to keep it steady while pressurizing the interior of the cooker once things are ready to go. All you have to do is make sure you release the valve and pull out your fully-cooked meal when the timer goes off. Check out our curated selection of pressure cookers from top brands and add one to your kitchen. Your meal planning and preparation will take off in ways you never thought it could.

    Not so instant, but easy to use

    |
    Posted .

    Instant pots are really useful at being able to just throw a bunch of ingredients in a pot and having dinner ready-but they’re not that quick. The time to get up to pressure is required for all pressure cooker recipes, so in reality a “5 minute” cook time under pressure could mean 15-20 minutes of cooking time when you include the time getting up to pressure and releasing. Despite that, the IP is easy to use and has a massive amount of content/recipes devoted to it so it’s pretty easy to find something you’d like to make in it.

    Game Changer!

    I purchased my first Instant Pot 2-1/2 years ago during Amazon's Black Friday sale. Big fan! Cuts down on cooking time with moist & juicy flavorful results! This Best Buy purchase was a Christmas gift for my bff. It was also the lowest price I've ever seen for this model at 59 dollars and 99 cents. The plan was for me to swing by my friend's one weekend and make a dish together. Being self-quarantined changed that plan, so I gave her a virtual cooking class this past weekend (she made kielbasa with cabbage, which took 25 minutes). What can I say? She took one bite and became weak in the knees - she's loved it! She couldn't believe the flavor that was achieved in such a short period of time. She's now a Insta-believer and is scouring the internet for other recipes to try for her family :) Just want to mention - please keep in mind that it takes several minutes for the Instant Pot to pressurize. Once it reaches the pressurized state, the 25 minute cook time begins. Once it reaches the cook time you've selected, the unit then begins depressurizIng - which takes another 5-10 minutes. If you don't want to wait for it to depressurize on its own, simply tap the Release Valve and step back because stream of volcanic proportions will erupt from the valve! The accessories I have ordered over time: Instant Pot Glass Lid, Steamer Rack and Silicone Lid. I highly recommend. BTW, I now own 2 Instant Pots, and have also purchased as gifts for my brother and sister.

    Easy Setup and Cleaning

    Bought this at around St. Patrick's day to use for making corned beef and cabbage. Worked extremely well! Browned the beef, added stock and the veggies, closed lid and wham, 30 mins later you get the tender and flavorful corned beef and cabbage! Cleaning was straight forward, just keep track of all the small rubber pieces that you need to dis-assemble and then assemble back to gather when dried. Made of stainless steel that was surprisingly non-stick. Will try making baked goods and yogurt next. Would highly recommend. Luckily this was on sale at around the time everyone was being asked to quarantine themselves.

    Instant love for the instant pot

    I’m frequently too tired to make dinner because of long work days, somI decided to give the a Instant Pot a try because so many people say it’s fast and easy. They aren’t kidding. The first meal I made in it turned out fantastic, and it was only a matter of throwing a bunch of ingredients in and letting it do it’s thing. Clean up is super easy, and everything except for the exterior pot you plug in is dishwasher safe. I use it about 4 times a week. It’s improved my life significantly! The only thing that’s a little tricky is determining when the timer is counting down the cooking time vs counting the natural pressure release time after the cooking timer ends. I wish there were different colored lights to distinguish the two at a glance. Small complaint relative to its greatness, though!

    I bought my 6 qt.Instant Pot Viva a month ago and have not regretted the purchase. I had read online reviews prior to the purchase; viewed basic “ how-to” videos and watched several demos of recipes to prep myself to use the Instant Pot Viva. Two recipes later— braised pork cutlets with apples and onions in a wine/broth sauce and a corn bread with cheddar cheese-I am convinced that I made a wise decision. Covid quarantining has made me weary of my own cooking, so this new Instant Pot addition should improve my inventory of recipes. If you still harbor fears of the old pressure cookers with the jiggle release valves, please let them go. Follow the instructions to the Instant Pot and you should find it easy and safe to use. Best Buy advertised that this model came with a measuring cup and spoon, but none were in the box. It does come with a trivet for easier lifting of items and an extra sealing ring.

    I took the plunge on a deal of the day for this InstaPot. I will admit that I had much more intention of using it more than I do. However, thus far I've made boiled eggs, pulled pork, and stuffed peppers. I'm looking forward to trying white chicken chili soon - my daughter swears by it and says it is the best chili ever! I love the concept of quick cooking especially for those who live a busy lifestyle, and I need to make a more concerted effort to take advantage of this cooker. The cooker seems very solidly built and not cheap feeling at all. It cuts the cooking time down drastically.
