No recipes, but a fascinating look at the Marketing strategy of the InstaPot. Sales have apparently taken off these past six months, since Prime Day sale Nancy put in another thread. I don't do much social media so have missed this trend completely except for seeing recipes on Pinterest.

love ours so much i bought a second one. i'll often make carbs for the family in one, and meat in the other one. or when i have lots of bones, i run them both to make bone broth. totally worth it just for the bone broth. i use it for almost all the meat we cook, too, it makes everything so tender and flavourful. the only exception seems to be ham--we are unthrilled with the way that our hams turn out in the ip, so we bake the ham.

It's a winner. I've been making 2 days plus both broth for almost 2 years now (much of the time the large pot just goes in the oven). My sister gave me one of these for Xmas and I finally got around to using it. Yup, I think I used 3 60 minute sessions and the broth was done to perfection with no constant watching.

I've always said the first broth I made that I was truly happy with was with a pressure cooker. However, that was the "dried-bean-and-rice old days" when the cooker was just too small for bone broths.

Wait a minute, that's cheating; Seafood and meat together? Have you made this combo before? How was it?

Well I am not paying $100 for a pressure cooker, will wait for a sale, though its use for bone broth is intriguing. Would the 6 quart size be good enough? Don't want a behemoth on my counter, and better for smaller roasts?

I bought mine at Walmart on black Friday. It was in the wrong place, so I got it for $ 20. It is not a instant pot but it works the same. Can even use as a slow cooker

Thanks Thud...the broths look great. I make a whole head of cauliflower in the microwave in ten minutes. No utensils messed at all. Besides price, space for another gadget and ease of clean-up come next. but you seem to use yours a lot. I am never happy straining and then cleaning my 6qt crockpot after bone broth. What a mess. Thanks for photos.
Wow $20, Ellen, a woman after my own heart.

I can't remember how long to cook it but it's super short using the "steam" function. you just add a little water to cover the bottom and fire it up. Very efficient.

And Janet, cleanup is super easy. The top never get's really a mess and the stainless insert comes out each time for clearning and can be used for other stuff, like soaking napa cabbage for kimchi!

My dh bought me one for Christmas - I had missed this thread and hadn't heard of it.

I love it. Did a 4 pound roast in such a short time, a lemon and chicken and herb recipe in 12 minutes. Never liked my pressure cooker but love this - the ability to make yogurt, saute etc etc., it's working well for us.

Made a wonderful low carb shredded pork in it last week. I've many more recipes to try, but so far, love the ones by nom nom paleo.
