@natasha_natasha@sproinky easy to clean, easy to use. I use mine mostly as a pressure cooker and an air fryer. For the pressure cooker settings, just follow instructions on any instant pot recipes you find. It even has a sensor to keep you from running it with the wrong lid for your chosen cooking setting.
@natasha_natasha I’ve used it for chicken breast, whole chickens, beef stew pieces, bbq shrimp etc. It does great for cutting down on cooking times and making tougher cuts more tender. They’ve got a good recipe book you can follow until you start to branch out and make your own recipes or find them online.
The best has been for short ribs, 40 minutes pressure cooked with beef broth and red wine, onions & garlic everything seasoned. Then you let it vent for 10 minutes and then air crisp for 5. It’s pretty great and turns a 3 hour dish into about half that. Dishwasher safe too.
It’s pretty big and has a second lid for pressure cooking (the air crisp one flips up) but a good addition to the kitchen if you have space for it.
@natasha_natasha@sproinky I use mine weekly for pulled pork and my son uses it daily for whatever frozen fried thing he wants (usually fries and egg rolls). It’s great for leftover pizza too. There is a roast chicken recipe in the manual that uses the pressure cooker than the air fryer to brown the chicken. It’s good too.
@natasha_natasha@sproinky For pulled pork I use pork loin because I’m lazy and just pressure cook it. I often use a big chunk of frozen pork and cook it longer- works great. If I’m doing pork tenderloin I air fry it- comes out nice and crispy.
@natasha_natasha One thing nobody mentioned here is that it’s not only good for meats, it’s terrific for cooking beans! Really fast and you don’t have to pre-soak them.
Also good for grains. And if you don’t need to use what you’ve cooked immediately, it will keep it warm for 12 hours!
