Cooks All types of food

I am very pleased by this product because I have a limited amount of space and the ease of use is a great plus to me two thumbs up. Read the directions first then its real easy.

Saves time, great cooking.

Great product, I don't use the stove anymore, you can cook frozen food out of the freezer!…

Does this pot also cook eggs?

Yes, I cook eggs in my instant pot all the time

Does it come with a cook book, showing ideas?

It comes with the App that has dozens of ideas and recipes. But honestly, they are pretty specific, what you really want to do is google recipes for what you want and then just find a recipe with a similar cook time in the app.

Saves so much time cooking.

Great for a house with working spouses. Easy to setup, use, and clean.

Can I brown a roast in it?

Yes You can brown anything in it and than pressure cook or slow cook

Love it

Love the red color and enjoy cooking in it. Fairly simple to use, which the instruction booklet had more details about cooking times and recipes, but I just google what I need.

A gift!!

Beautiful color (RED), well made, easy to use - cooks evenly!

Amazing products

Food taste delicious and I cook in just a few minutes love it

What is the difference between instant pot lux 6 qt red 6-in-1, instant pot duo 7-in-1, and instant pot duo plus 9-in-1? just the 6, 7,or 9 functions?

I believe so. Just the amount of functions it does. I have the 6 qt and if there isn't a mode for what I'm looking to do I use the manual cook mode. Never have had a problem. You can look up most anything you want to cook and it will give you the function and time for cooking.

Is the 6 quart size plenty big for a family of 3?

Yes! This size has plenty of room for whatever it is you are cooking.

BIG POT

BEST YET EASY ,COOKS FOOD WONDERFUL IF YOU NEED A PRESSURE COOKER BUY THE INSTANT POT

Very efficient

I love that I can cook and not have my house heated up from using my stove! In the hot Texas summers, I prefer to not use my stove and I can cook meals in minutes using my insta pot!

Love this!

Cook time is very efficient! It does take 15 or more minutes to come up to pressure and start the cook timer, and also about 10 or more minutes to release the pressure at the end.…

Fast!

Cooks frozen chicken perfectly!

Instant pot is teaching ME how to cook! About time I learned.

I am no chef in the kitchen, my husband does alll of the cooking for us. This instant pot was recommended by my friends mother, who makes Indian food, and has been teaching me how to cook properly. Since purchasing this, we have cooked a lot more diverse foods, that would otherwise be time consuming and complex. … Happy cooking!

15 psi has shorter cooking time

The 15 psi is the highest pressure …I love this for my large cuts of meats…and canning a few jars at a time……using the automatic steam release kinda scared me at first ……then I set it the next level down …… not so much steam release at one time …I can handle this……the Sous vibe was an extra bonus …I have never tasted steak this good …I have two other models …I think the digital display is much easier on this one ……the max……overall I’m pleased

Can I cook a whole turkey?

You could cook a very small turkey. I would estimate not more than 8 to 10 You could cook a turkey up to about 8 lbs. You cannot full the insta pot more than 2/3 full for safety so I believe you would be better off roasting your turkey. Having said that I cook a whole chicken along with an onion, carrots, celery and broth and make great soup.

How does the programmable timer for the slow cooker work? Does it allow you to set the specific time to start cooking (such as 8 am)?

The Instant Pot Max is capable of programming cook times based on the clock time set on the pot.

Spouse LOVES This Instant Pot

…My spouse, the family cook, loves it. …He uses the pressure cooking setting often. …I don't cook much, so I use the ancient crock pot which has no controls to fret over, but I love the food he makes in the Instant Pot.…

Great Upgrade

…It cooks even faster than the previous model, and it's really nice to be able to tweak more settings.…

Bring joy back to cooking on a schedule. ( new update)

…The BEST thing was it tasted like it had cooked all night.…

Hello, How do I adjust a recipe written for a 6 qt ultra to cook with an 8 qt ultra?

Recipe can be cooked for the same amount of food in the 8 qt. If you are talking about increase the recipe to a 8 qt that would be a percentage increase but seasoning isn’t that easy.

What is the difference between the Max and Max60?

With max, you can cook everything.

Cooks well

Love this!! I love the many options it can do and my food was delicious each time I used it.

How many cup of rice can this cooker cook?

Great question! The 6 quart units can comfortably prepare 6 cups of uncooked rice at a time. When cooking starchy foods, it is best not to fill your inner cooking pot beyond the 1/2 mark, indicated on the interior of the cook pot.

What setting would you recommend to slow cook a pot roast - low or normal?

Great question! When using the 'Slow Cook' function we recommend using the 'More' mode and setting the cooking time for 10 + hours, for best results. For cooking tips and program details, please visit us at our website!

Very nice cooking option

So far I like it. I've made a couple of large batches of hot and sour soup that came out very well. There's a bit of a learning curve and it's good to watch some videos on youtube to get you going. I'm looking forward to trying out more recipes.

Simple Easy Cooking

Love this...so simple and makes cooking a breeze!!

It cooks real fast

I love this pressure cooker i use all the time for steaming vegetables or making stew and alot of other things.

Joe
can you cook meat balls?

Would a 7-8 lb whole chicken fit in a 6 qt?

Thanks for your question! The Instant Pot Duo RED 60 can comfortably fit a 4-5 lb chicken. If you are looking to cook a larger chicken, the 8 quart unit would be best.

Effortless cooking

I kept telling myself that even with all the hype I didn’t need a instapot that I already had two crockpots. However I couldn’t beat the price when I saw this on amazon and that it even came with some of the accessories. In just the month I have had it I already made hard boiled eggs with the steamer, moist chicken and a roast. Being on the go with a often demanding work schedule can make dinner prep stressful but this device has helped me serve dinner effortlessly and quickly! I can’t wait to use it more and I even want to try some of the recipes in the provided recipe booklet.

So easy to cook and in a minutes

I love my muller ultra pot so easy to cook and in minutes highly recommend

Does the Mueller 6-quart instantpot have to be filled up to the 6-quart level? In other words, can I cook a smaller amount, like just enough for two?

I cook smaller amounts effectively. I don't know how small you can go, but I sometimes cook much less than full.

Can I cook meats in this pressure cooker?

Yes. Beef, ribs, chicken, chops, stews, even cake.

Cooks delicious meals

I bought this pressure cooker because it had a lot of the things I'd need, right there in the box. The measuring cup and the rest of the stuff that comes with it is quality made and doesn't seem like a flimsy afterthought by the manufacturer to make it more attractive to consumers. The food it makes is really delicious and the quality of the product is fantastic.

Easy home cooked meals

I love coming home to a cooked meal and since I am the only one cooking, having this awesome gadget in my kitchen has made all the difference.

Excellent for cooking in a flash

This pressure cooker has made it so much easier and faster to cook meals for my family. Especially when I didn’t plan anything, I can cook frozen chicken in minutes.…

How much food can you cook in a 6qt vs a 8qt?

enough for four people in a 6qt easily.

Makes cooking easier

Gifted this as a wedding gift and the couple was thrilled! They said this has been amazing and so convenient. Easy to use, so many recipes, and makes food taste amazing in a reasonable time!
