[CnD] Instant Pot

I got an Instant Pot for Christmas. I had never cooked with a pressure
cooker before and have to admit that I was nervous about it. I love
the Instant Pot! What I like best is the blue tooth connectivity. I
can control the pot, and even better, know exactly what it's doing
from anywhere in my house. I particularly like the Instant Pot for
making hard-cooked eggs (4 minutes under pressure, 4 minutes to
release pressure, 4 minutes in an ice-water bath, and they peel
perfectly and are perfectly well done! Also, I love the Instant Pot
for dry beans. I like to make a turkey breast in the IP -- 30 minutes
from coming-up-to-pressure until done, and much more flavorful than
even oven roasted! I'm still trying to perfect steel cut oats and
rice, but I will get there, I'm sure!

Amazon.com is having their annual Prime (Summer) Days sale beginning
on the 10th of July. I would encourage anyone to invest in the Instant
Pot! If you're blind and use an IPhone or IPad, make sure you get the
one that's got the blue tooth connectivity built in!

There are a number of Instant Pot Facebook groups. I have learned a
lot from joining several of these groups.

I wish that BARD or BookShare would make one of the many Instant Pot
recipes books available, but I haven't found any yet. There are a
number of pressure-cooking cookbooks available on BookShare though,
and I have learned a lot from these as well.

Happy cooking!
Penny
