All brands are different. One great thing about this one is the stainless steel insert, not teflon. Plus the features and quality.

Folks and brother have a Fagor, with ceramic liner.

 

I am looking daily for the Instant pot Duo 6 or 8qt...sold out everywhere within 50 miles of here.

 

Can get it online but I want to get it locally.

Woohoo. Got an InstantPot for Christmas and broke it in last night. Made chao ga aka congee aka rice soup. Came out great and was super easy to clean up.

So how do you like the mini?

 

It is big enough for your liking or would you think the Duo 6 or Duo 8 would be more useful?

This really is the perfect size for me. It's smaller but it still cooks up a sizeable amount of food that can be portioned out for future meals. I really like how simple it is to clean up too.

One of the best kitchen gadgets you can spend your money on.

I use it to make yogurt at least twice a month.

Used it to cook a pork butt for pulled pork

Used it to cook beef short ribs 

Used it to cook frozen chicken

Used it to cook up some tamales

 

There are great videos on YouTube and lots of help at Pinterest.

Go for the biggest you can afford.

I have the 6 quart unit.

 

Probably bought it from Amazon over a year ago.

 

I have a lot of the accessories that you purchase separately.

Porridge?

 

What is this midieval sorcery?

 

Looks like a crock pot with a bunch of wham whams and zuzu's.

 

The neanderthal and caveman discovered fire and learned how to cook with it.

 

I do own a crock pot and use it sometimes for Mrs. Blues sheeit.

 

But all I need is a sharp knife, a bigass cutting board, and a cast iron skillet.

now dat is sum gould cookn addvise der brutha's..........................

I have seen racks for steaming, egg racks, pot in pot accessories, books, silicone trays, lids and more.
