I LOVE my Instant Pot. Corned beef, pot roast and stew in 2 hours or less!

I agree. Food cooked in a crock pot has that "crockpot food taste." Meh

Instant Pots are great tools.

But I usually braise things in a dutch oven in the oven.
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

We gave our large crock pot to our daughter. She uses it to keep towels warm. She is a massage therapist.

Since the consensus is Instant Pot, any recommendations? I rarely ever used my crock pot so I am concerned a new purchase may go to the wayside?
I do use my dutch oven for braising and for soup.

Why would I buy an IP and what is the best way to use it? I have zero idea about the IP.
Thanks John
