Perhaps it's the melted plastic that gives Instapotted food that certain something.

Wonder how many of that version have been sold. It looks much more like a slow cooker than any of the others.

 

I gifted my Fagor Duo 8-qt. pressure cooker (with 2 brand new gaskets!) to friends who spend the month of February at Snowbird. Always complaining about how difficult/impossible it is (at 8,500') to cook some of their favorite things for a crowd, such as beans. 

 

Other than having to deal with the slight pain in the ass of a problem getting the lid to correctly latch on, they've used it a few times, and really liked the results...beans cooked properly! I think one of the nicer things about the Instant vs. a classic pc, is that it takes no extra jiggling/wiggling to get the lid to sit right. As well as the programmability, of course.

Really doesn't look like the other models.  Wonder if it's current?

i was just about to pull the trigger on a 3 qt model. but i tend to use these things when i am at home doing other things and can keep periodic watch on things.

I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Crap. Amazon had a sale on this model over the holidays and I bought one. Maybe it's a good thing that I've yet to use it  :P

You really want something that small?

 

And if any admin is reading this thread, it's INSTANT POT ( 2 words) not Instapot.

Not the model that includes a pressure cooker - very limited recall

i don't have loads of space to store it and keep thinking i might like a 3 or 3.5 qt staub or le creuset dutch oven more.

One more super enthusiastic vote for Staub.    I've had Le Creuset and Desco and loved each in its time, but neither has the heft or integrity of Staub to say nothing of elegance.   Yeh, I'm hooked.

Such different beasts, that's for sure.  Certainly, if you're looking to make tasty stuff more quickly, you know which way to go.  I don't think the overall size difference between a 3 and 6 qt. is that great - as a matter of fact, less than I thought...click.

 

But, if you want the dutch oven, I too love Staub.

i mostly end up with staub, too. the mini ultra appeals. the big bluetooth model seems silly

The mini Ultra keeps appealing even after you get it.

But does its beauty make you say "be still, my heart" when you glimpse it on the shelf or while you're washing up?
