Cheryl-S More than 1 year ago
This is a fantastic step-by-step book on using an Instant Pot.  It also teaches you how to convert recipes to fit your Instant Pot, which is my favorite part. It answers many questions on troubleshooting, PIP cooking and other issues. The variety of recipes are fabulous and the pictures are very enticing.  If you already have one or if you're thinking of buying one this is a great book to learn from.

This book is what the manual SHOULD have been! Explains the settings and give some great recipes to go along with them. Instant Pot should include this with every purchase!

Assumes a familiarity with instant pots and/or pressure cookers that I haven't acquired. I found the instructions were not a good fit for my brand of one-pot cooker and the recipes were, well, unique. Some of the ingredients aren't found in my local markets. Disappointed.

Essentials, it’s in the name and it’s in the book. This book is great! It starts you with the basic instructions of how to use your new pressure cooker but quickly moves on to some delectable dishes and sides. Maybe you’re like me and you like cooking with natural ingredients that are non-processed and from scratch. Things like dry beans and learning how to make your own yogurt, hummus, and bone-broth. And how can you go wrong with a desert with chai in it? There’s one in this book called Coconut Chai Rice Pudding. Warning: if you’re hungry this book is torture to look at. It’s sure to have you drooling. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
