Pressure Cooker/Slow Cooker/Crock Pot-Forum

I wish DC had a Pressure Cooker/Slow Cooker/Crock Pot Forum.



So it would be easier to post/find these types of recipes.

MsM, there's a slow cooker/crock pot forum here:
Slow Cookers - Discuss Cooking - Cooking Forums , but it doesn't appear to include pressure cooking...

My crock pot is a LeCrueset dutch oven.

Now, it certainly can't do what a pressure cooker does, but a crock pot can't either.

Instantpot seems to be all the rage this year but I'm at the age where slow cooker is preferred in my kitchen... But then, I didn't get into the Sou Vide thingy either...

Due to this appliance being all the rage, there is presently a three to four month wait for them. Stores can't keep them in stock.

An instapot is also a slow cooker

It's all the rage for a good reason -- it is a very versatile and excellent performer

It replaces many appliances in your kitchen. Slow cooker, electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, sauté/browning pan, and warming pot.

Just think of all the room you will have in your cabinets. There is going to be a flux of no longer needed appliances at your Goodwill store.

No there isn't. They're available on Amazon right now. Everyone I know who has one got it through Amazon.

The versatility is the reason I finally gave in ... that and I only paid $65.00 on Black Friday thanks to Amazon. I am going to try making a cheesecake for Easter. You can even proof your no knead dough using the yogurt setting. No knead dough ready in 3-4 hours instead of 12-18 hours.

GG Amazon does have brief periods when they are out of stock. But not for long. Instant Pot wasn't available for awhile when they had a problem with people receiving dented pots. Also the new 9-1 is currently unavailable.
