LOL, Kayelle!

You're welcome, Dawg!

One of the primary reasons I wanted it is it's stainless steel, so you can brown and slow-cook or pressure-cook in the same pot.
Have you used the 'Porridge' button yet??

Ha, no. I don't like hot cereals like oatmeal. Hm, I wonder if it would do polenta or grits. I'll have to look into that.

Thanks GG. That does sound like something I might want. Let us know how it goes as you try more functions.

It does both...wonderfully! Steel cut oats are great and so is brown rice.

I've only used it as a rice cooker and a pressure cooker so far. Took a few tries to get the rice right.

I made Thai-flavored chicken stock the other day with kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, etc. and was very favorably impressed at how clear it was.

GG, which size did you get? Is that size adequate for your needs?
