What I like about the Instant Pot is that it can replace multiple small appliances. What I don't like is the size of it. The outside compared to the holding capacity. It didn't seem worth it to me. I still think I want a pressure cooker though.I had never heard of the Instant pot until a couple days ago and I think I read it here. I looked it up but haven't investigated thoroughly - however - it might be something I NEEEEEEED! I'll investigate further at some point.
