    Essentials of using your Instant Pot are covered including rookie mistakes. Better to learn by reading than by doing! Clear, concise directions presented in a nice layout. Recipes feature some everyday familiar foods as well as some new recipes to keep things fresh and interesting.

    Great book for learning how to use the instant pot, instructions well explained and detailed, good pictures.Having just bought an instant pot, I felt overwhelmed at the many things my pot can do, so a cookbook that also explains how to use it, is a must.Great recipes such as eggplant caponata, beef ragú and Italian seafood stew.I'm still wondering if the rice on the instant pot is better or easier to cook than "normal" rice, though!I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I own an Instant Pot and found this cookbook helpful for understanding the different functions and uses of the pot. The recipes are ones my family would enjoy and it's nice to have pictures for some of the recipes. The directions are easy to understand and the trouble shooting section is extremely helpful.

    Typical of most Instant Pot cookbooks. A few good recipes among a bunch of other stuff. Just because you can make something in your Instant Pot doesn't mean that you should make it in your Instant Pot.

    Checked this book out from the library hoping to find some practical recipes to make in my Instant Pot. There is a lot of good information in this book about properly using the IP, helpful hints, etc. The recipes look tasty, but for the average cook would not be practical. Many of the recipes have ingredients and spices that most cooks will not have readily available in their kitchen. Also a lot of the recipes have many steps.

    I am an Instant Pot fanatic, I will gladly admit, and this book was a great primer on some IP questions that I've had for a while. I was amazed that the lid of the pot locks into the handles, saving counter space. I really liked the creative recipes that the book had - and that a lot of them were Whole30 or easily modified to fit the Whole30 diet (which I follow). Of the 72 recipes in the book, 30 were Whole30 compatible (or could be made compatible with a little substitution.The recipes that I I am an Instant Pot fanatic, I will gladly admit, and this book was a great primer on some IP questions that I've had for a while.

Of the 72 recipes in the book, 30 were Whole30 compatible (or could be made compatible with a little substitution.The recipes that I tried were good, but the ingredients were a bit vague. Thankfully, the beef short ribs I tried came out tasty (but watery). Same for the chicken wings - Ohmygod yum. When I went to make their Garlicy Kale and Bacon and I just couldn't figure out the right amount of ingredients. 6 slices of bacon? Ok, we use stuff from the farmer's market and the slices are HUGE. One large bunch of kale? Uh... they only sell them in one size, so hopefully this is enough. In the end, I ended up with 2 servings of very bacon-y and not so lemon-y or garlicy kale, which my husband loved but made me feel ill. Then there are the recipes that are just plain strange. I'm probably never going to bake a cake in the Instant Pot, or cook a casserole. Some of the recipes, like Potato Salad and Nachos, barely involve the Instant Pot. I think a better way to present this info would have been a chapter on "Basics" with how to cook Potatos, Spaghetti Squash, Beans, etc - which they kind of have with the broth recipe. Overall, I give this book 3 stars. It would be a great addition to a gift of an Instant Pot. I definitely recommend checking out the recipes to see if anything strikes your fancy... but in terms of being worth the space on your cookbook shelf, I guess that depends on how much you enjoy baking cakes in your instant pot.I was given a free copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

With the coming of age of this kitchen appliance, Instant Pot, has brought the pressure cooker to the modern cook with new and innovative ways of using it. No longer mostly used for cooking tougher cuts of meats or just speeding up cooking time. Now you can use your pressure cooker for any meal, including breakfast and dessert.Think French Toast, Banana Bread or even Corn Bread to go with Pineapple and Chipotle Pork Tacos; Top you meal off with a Double Chocolate Cheesecake or a Pumpkin Spice Cake (which came out moist and delicious for me.)

    This book is designed for the newer Instant Pot owner who is also a less experienced cook. However, it also has good information for those of us who are more comfortable with a variety of cooking methods on specific techniques for the Instant Pot. I say this because the level of detail in the cooking instructions is high, yet many recipes are time-consuming as they are based on a single ingredient that was cooked in the Instant Pot prior to beginning the meal.

However, it also has good information for those of us who are more comfortable with a variety of cooking methods on specific techniques for the Instant Pot. I say this because the level of detail in the cooking instructions is high, yet many recipes are time-consuming as they are based on a single ingredient that was cooked in the Instant Pot prior to beginning the meal. For example, one of the first recipes is a yogurt parfait in which the yogurt is made from scratch, a process that takes more than a day. Similarly, the bean recipes don't use the Instant Pot other than to cook the beans. The book begins with detailed information on using the Instant Pot. It then goes into a short discussion of other resources that are helpful and provides some basic recipes for things like stock. Then the recipes are organized by meal type, with pressure cooked recipes first, followed by slow cooked recipes. I made two recipes: Creamy rice with polenta and corn, and Cheesy pasta and kale. They were both simple to prepare and very tasty.While I appreciated the inclusion of both slow and pressure cooked recipes, I would have preferred that many of the recipes include directions for both ways of preparation. However, if you own an electric pressure cooker and have been uncertain about using it to make certain types of dishes, this would be a good book to purchase. It provides the detail and tips that will help increase your confidence in making your own yogurt, cakes, or pasta.I reviewed a digital ARC provided through NetGalley.

I particularly liked the quick list: What you Absolutely Need to Know Before Using Your Instant Pot and the list of Rookie Mistakes. There's also a chapter on Essential Kitchen Tools and Pantry Items which I thought was a little long and unnecessary.The strength of this cook book is the recipes themselves. I could see myself making quite a few of the recipes for my family. I tried making the Pulled Pork Sandwiches and they were delicious. In the past, I've made pulled pork in the crock pot and it takes around 8 hours. I used the Pressure Cooker Setting and the pulled pork was completed within an hour. Unlike the slow cooker version, the meat was very flavorful and tender without being soggy. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow, even for me, a first-time Instant Pot user. I look forward to trying more recipes from this collection.

    I own an Instant Pot but have been afraid to use it. This book dispels the mystery around it and provides irresistible recipes. I will have to conquer my fears in order to eat better!I had not realized I could bake in it. Banana bread, cakes, etc. I began writing down recipes that sounded tempting and soon ran out of space on the page. The recipes are broad and cover a wide variety of tastes.The recipes sometimes require additional equipment such as a food processor or broiler.

    I love my Instant Pot and was excited to see this book come up as an option in NetGalley. I was immediately disappointed by the length (75 pages). I was further disappointed by the recipes. Who has millet in their cupboards on a regular basis? There are some with ingredients that I would consider standard but there were enough with some slightly odd ingredients as to make it not worth reading. Also, the large pages made loading on the ereader very, very slow.

    This Instant Pot cookbook seems more practical than others I've looked at. It contains more "regular" food recipes with ingredients that I would have on hand. The one thing it lacks that others have included is a chart with cooking times for potatoes, rice and meats that maybe wouldn't necessarily require a recipe in and of themselves.

    This book focused more on how to make things in an Insta-Pot than what things are improved by cooking in one. It would be a good reference for someone using an IP as their main way of cooking (like in a dorm room), but in a full kitchen I see no benefit to making my French toast and hard boiled eggs in one.

    Since I got my Instant Pot I cook almost all my meals in it every week. I have been getting stuck in a little rut with the same type of recipes. I love the variety of recipes in this cookbook. Just a note if you eat Paleo/Ketogenic, there are some recipes that you can use in this cookbook. There are several I can't wait to try out!

    I checked out all the Instant Pot cookbooks from my library. This one is not at all a bad cookbook, but it did not thrill me. Out of about 75 recipes, only a dozen are something I'd make. Personal taste, food preference issue.
