I don't like any softness in hard boiled eggs. They have to be *done*. 5 minutes and I used the quick release, they were good for me.

I've had one for 3 or 4 years now. I use it all the time. I cook beans and oatmeal in it often. It's great for steaming vegetables, potatoes. And soups are really quick. I use the slow cooker setting often, too.

I steamed beets in mine today.

I also cooked frozen chicken in a once a month cooking recipe I prepared a few weeks ago.

I'm making rice now.

When I did 8 minutes, mine were overcooked - green around the yokes and two of the eggs had cracked open. 5 minutes worked much better.

I made bone broth yesterday. I filled it 2/3 full with chicken bones and cold water. Manual setting, high pressure, 2 hours.

This broth had the most beautiful gel!

I'm making chicken and vegetable soup with it right now. Cooked chicken breasts that I found in the freezer, cubed potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, and onions. I'm using the soup setting for 15 minutes. I don't know if that's the right amount of time but we'll see.

Altitude is a factor. I imagine the size of the eggs has a slight effect, too. Lately I've been getting super jumbo.

Yes, this. I just read that I need to add 20% cooking time to all my recipes.

.....

The rice was great. 3 minutes. 10 minutes natural steam. 3.5 cups cooking liquid and 2 cups jasmine rice.

......

The frozen chicken took 12 minutes. I'm still in shock. I removed the chicken and put the liquid and rice in.

I'm going to have to start saving bones for broth. It sounds so good! (I don't think I've made my own broth since my 5 year old was born lol)

My instant pot now has a chicken carcass in it and my fridge is almost empty and ready to be cleaned.

Looks like you can make brownies in it. Just need five in or 7 in metal pans!

The soup was great! I think it would've been done in less than 15 minutes, probably 12.
