I did HB eggs earlier this week, and I'm trying "baked" potatoes now.

I will continually and forever sing the praises of the IP. I use it multiple times a week.

Are you looking for some recipes? Tips? Other?

The other night I made a delicious creamy chicken recipe that I served over mashed potatoes. Kids loved and it wanted leftovers in their school lunches the next day. But the mashed potatoes were gone. In the morning, before school, I steamed a few potatoes in 13 minutes in the IP, mashed them, and they were ready to pack in their lunches.

I'm looking for mostly tips, ideas and hacks and shortcuts I haven't thought of, and some recipes.

Coconut lemon curry chicken -- Sooooo easy!
1 can coconut milk
1/4 c lemon juice
1 tsp turmeric
1 Tbsp curry powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix sauce. Add 4 chicken breasts. (Mine were frozen.)

Poultry button. (Add 10 minutes for frozen)

Release when you need to. NPR or QR, doesn't matter.

Shred & serve over rice.

This is very mild. I might kick it up a bit next time. More curry, less lemon, more salt.

Default Re: Instant Pot for Newbies

I've had my IP for two months & the seal is already so stretched that it will not stay in place. I had two dishes book dry.
I am not very impressed. I contacted IP, but haven't heard back, yet.
In the meantime, I ordered a few extra seals from Amazon.

Oh wow! That would be super frustrating! I've had mine for months and use it a lot and have had no issues. I hope that IP CS backs up their product for you. Lmk what they say when you hear from them (if you do).

There's conflicting recommendations as to whether you should put the Instant pot seal ring in the dishwasher or not. one book says yes and one book says no. Even customer service is giving conflicting messages there.

I always hand wash all components of the IP. I figure better safe than sorry. I have put the stainless steel interior pot in the dishwasher a time or two but even that I usually just handwash super quick.

I put my seal in the dishwasher if I cook something highly seasoned/fragrant. I've had mine over a year and use it 2-3x a week, no issues.

I'm really sorry you're having issues, Sundance. They definitely should send you a new seal.

Have you posted this on their social media?

This looks great! I have panang curry paste that is amazing. I'm going to try it this way.

So, what do you do when your IP has the entree and you need rice? I hate cooking rice on the stove.

I cook my rice on the stove. I have heavy bottom stainless pots that make it easy.

Do you have the tools to do pot in pot? Then you could do the rice and main dish together.

I still have my old rice cooker and just use that. I love rice in the IP but you're right, usually when I'm making rice, I'm making something in the IP. Plus I find the rice cooker to be just as convenient as the IP.

I definitely think this regularly. However it's in direct opposite to my minimalist wannabe aspirations. So that's what holds me back.
