Default Re: Instant Pot for Newbies

Can I ask why you cook from frozen? Is it a time crunch thing that happens when you forget to thaw meat ahead of time or do you purposely use frozen?

I only ask because I read that cooking from frozen is possible, but definitely not ideal and it's always better and you will get better results cooking thawed.

I thought one of the benefits of having an IP was being able to cook easily from frozen. I cook almost everything from frozen. It's partially because I'm not that organized and partially because I lack the fridge space to defrost things (though I'm doing better in this regard).

I guess it can be. Depends on who you ask. For me the benefit is the speed of cooking. I never cook from frozen just because in my opinion, the result is always a bit more subpar than what you'd get cooking from thawed meat.

That said, I'm not suggesting one shouldn't. Just saying why I don't.
