Instapot

I have an old slow cooker, bought for $20 late one Saturday night online from Sears.  When I went to pick my order up, the Sears associate commented favorably on the price I paid.

When SpecialK and I got married, in April, 2014, my slow cooker made the journey cross country.  We have used it to create luscious eats, and I love that machine.  As things go, I know my slow cooker is antiquated.  I know there are programmable options.

Due to wonky ovens here, SpecialK and I considered purchasing an air fryer.  He wanted one of the larger units, and when we found one, the reviews were not good.

After seeing a fellow blogger post on FB, that the Instapot 6 Quart 6-in-1 was on sale for $59 as part of Amazon’s Black Friday sale, we discussed, and discussed it, and finally agreed to order one.  The price went down to $58 by the time I sent the info to a friend, and later that night, (Thanksgiving) the price had returned to $129.95.

The 7-in-1 unit adds the option to make yogurt.  SpecialK asked me why would I want to make yogurt?  Umm, cause homemade is healthier for us than anything we can buy?

The sale continues today, order now and you, too, can have the Instapot 6 Quart 6-in-1 for $68.95.

Order here.  We received our Instapot 6 Quart 6-in-1 Monday, and I ran the initial test.  Special K read the instruction manual last night, and we will begin using it very soon.

I jus added 5 boneless chicken breasts, frozen, with a total of 4.5 pounds. To the Instapot.  Including warm up, 30 minutes after I started, the chicken was all cooked.  I shredded chicken, chopped chicken, even sliced 2 of the breasts.  The bagging up of chicken took longer than it did to cook them.  Comparable to 4-6 hours in the slow cooker, might this save us some on electricity also?

Stay tuned, and if you have one of these 6-or more-all in one units, what are your favorite things to cook in it?  Please share back your ‘go to’recipes.  I am on a steep learning curve.
