    That looks good. What size do you have? Wife thinks she may need the larger one after talking to her friend.

    A quick google search makes this thing seem amazing. I didn't know I needed one of these.

    Told my parents to get me one if they needed any Christmas gift ideas - between that & the Anova sous vide I bought on Cyber Monday, I’m gonna be cooking all kinds of good stuff soon.

    Asked for a simple slow cooker for Christmas. Hadn't heard of this versatile wonder machine called an Instapot. Now Christmas is ruined. Thanks.

    For some reason it grinds my gears to have the Instant Pot be called the 'instapot'. Then again I'm a pretty nasty cunt.

    Will most crockpot recipes work in one of these?

    They also function as regular crock pots so yes. Pressure cooking instead of slow cooking is an option with these that will accelerate most recipes if you're looking to yeah

    Extra random features once you get past 6 in 1 you add like yogurt maker, egg cooker, sterilizer. Not sure what 10 is. I have a 7 but I've never used the yogurt maker

    I've only used pressure, slow cooker, rice cooker, saute. But I'm sure the other capabilities work just as well

    If you pressure cook a recipe meant for a crockpot (ex: Mississippi Roast), will it still be as tasty as the crockpot version?

    Yeah that's totally doable. It'd just be important to find someone to point to you towards the right amount of time for the consistency you desire. I use it to make serious complicated Dutch oven versions of short ribs and they're like 90% of the quality.

    Wife got one of these on black Friday and she has been a cooking machine with it.

    It was supposed to be an Xmas gift from me to her but she found a great deal and bought it. Which is good...but still need to buy her a replacement gift.

    Just did a quick glance on the posts ITT to figure out what an Instapot is, and it seems it’s just a pressure cooker.

    Is there more to this thing?

    Love my Instapot. Use it mostly for cooking under pressure. My go to is a red wine roast. Takes about 90 total minutes for a 4-5 lb roast. When done, just pulls apart. Have also made mac and cheese and rice pudding and a few other dishes. Have yet to be disappointed.
