    Did you go to a different register or just take the receipt and start the return process?

    I used it twice, it completely burned my food both times. Also I seem to remember a problem with the glass cover or something like that. I remember having to buy a new one after using it the first time.

    I returned it shortly after that, bought a crockpot for like 10% of the price and haven't had one issue with it.

    I thought so too after the first time--after the second it was obviously fucked up.

    I made Barbacoa in my Instant Pot last night for tacos. Twas tasty:

    3-4 lb beef bottom round roast or chuck roast cut into 3 inch chunks
    2 tbsp coconut oil (or canola, or grapeseed)
    1 large onion quartered
    5 garlic cloves
    1 tbsp chipotle powder (I used 2 whole chipotles in adobo)
    1 tbsp cumin
    1 tbsp dried oregano
    1 tsp chili powder
    2 tsp sea salt
    1/2 tsp ground black pepper
    1 cup beef broth or bone broth
    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar raw and unfiltered
    1/4 cup lime juice
    Fresh cilantro for garnish
    1. Set Instant Pot to Sauté setting and heat 2 tbsp of coconut oil for a few minutes.
    2. Add beef to the Instant Pot and brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Work in batches if needed.
    3. Leave the beef in the Instant Pot and turn it off.
    4. Combine the rest of the ingredients, except cilantro, in a blender and blend until smooth.
    5. Pour the sauce over the meat, close the lid, and cook for 60 minutes on high pressure.
    6. Release the pressure and open the lid. Take out the meat, shred it with 2 forks, and return it back into the Instant Pot.
    7. Stir, sprinkle with cilantro, and serve as taco meat, in a burrito bowl, etc.

    Made a roast sunday. Got frustrated as hell because it kept telling me that my instant pot was overheating. I'd turn it off, stir everything, and added some more liquid. Kept shutting down. Finally transferred everything to a big bowl and saw the issue. I browned the roast in the instant pot prior to attempting to put it under pressure. I've done that in the past with no problems, but this time was different. Apparently I got some clingers on the bottom of the pot during that browning that I didn't scrape up. That, combined with a thick liquid being used and tons of veggies resulted in the bottom of the pot getting a coating of gunk on it that ended up burning to the pot. Cleaned/scrubbed it off, dumped roast/etc back in and plugged away like normal. Turned out great. You know, like something you could eat off of a flipflop. Out of bounds. Bomb.com. Flavortown. Off da hook. Ok I'm done.

    Yeah. That shit was good. The spicy kick was perfect. I'm watching my girlish figure so I just ate over cauliflower rice instead of on a tortilla. Will definitely make again.

    I made ribs and pork roast in my pot. They both came off so good. The ribs require baking afterwards, but the roast was perfect. Doing another one today.

    You can totally make it without adding the cornstarch, that really just thickens up the sauce. But the flavor is exactly the same either way.

    Made hot sauce today

    I didn't really follow a recipe but based it on a sauce I've made before. I had about 3/4 of a gallon ziploc bag of a mix of habenero, jalapeno, and cayennes in the freezer from last year's garden. Put them in the IP with ~2lbs of carrots, two large onions, two orange bell peppers, 1 head of garlic, all rough chopped, and a few pinches of kosher salt and a little vinegar to start.

    12 min on high and then did a full natural release. Blended it with an immersion blender and thinned it out a little with carrot juice. Adjusted vinegar and salt to taste.

    i may copy you and do something similar. ive got a gallon bag taking up too much space in the freezer with about 20 random varieties, none of which have enough to make a sauce on their own

    You don't have to worry about the spice level too much to start with. You can use the carrot juice or whatever equivalent you use to tame it if you need. Since I was just winging it, I planned on blending in some apple pieces to make it chunkier if I had to thin it too much but it didn't need it. Or you could roast some carrots separately for the same purpose.
