Electronic pressure cookers have sensors that allow them to regulate the pressure by releasing steam while it's working. Once the time is up, it releases steam naturally, or you can turn the valve and release it all at once.
With the old style PCs, for a quick pressure release, you put the pot in the sink and ran cold water over it.

The question was raised, why cook pasta in a PC. If you brown the ground beef, add onion and garlic, herbs, and spices, you can then just add tomato product to make the sauce. It takes minutes in the Instapot for the full flavors to come together. Remove the pressure, and add another cup of water, then the uncooked pasta. The sauce flavor permeates the pasta as it absorbs the extra liquid, giving you a rich sauce that adheres to the pasta.

Another use is to make a sauce (or use your favorite store brand sauce), thin the sauce, put a little sauce on the bottom of the Instapot, then a layer of uncooked lasagna noodles, layers of meat, veggies, cheese, and more sauce, repeating for for or five layers. Set the instapot to pressure setting, and cook for ten minutes. Lasagna in ten minutes instead of an hour.

American goulash is quickly made in the Instapot as well.

i've made some pasta today in the instant pot and later added cheddar.

i didn't knew you can make dry pasta by boiling it in sauce and water instead of water {adding the sauce later}..

it is nice.
