We were gifted an instant pot for Christmas, and on a recipe online I found information about this book. It is a very handy guide to learning how to use your instant pot, and can give you ideas of what to cook in it. I've only used a few of the recipes (as some things I'm not going to eat), so it's definitely handy to have around. Especially since some websites don't break things down as easily when it comes to starting off with your IP.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a great manual on how to use your Instant Pot. It answered a lot of questions I had about using mine. I have actually ordered a copy to own for this reason. I also tried a few of the recipes with success, but can't vouch for all of them.

This book makes the Instant Pot less intimidating for the new user. The chapters are divided by pot function. The book gives good details on how to use each function, as well as some basics about the Instant pot itself. There are often variations on recipes (e.g. several variations on types of rice dishes or chili recipes) and suggestions for converting conventional recipes to instant pot recipes. We ended up buying this book as our "go-to" Instant pot cookbook.

This book details how to use the pot and the recipes are very step by step. Good starter for if you have not used a pot before. Very detailed.

A great reference, HOWEVER, I must say that the French Onion Soup recipe had failed, despite following the author's directions for pot settings to T, so just be warned of that one. After 10 hours, little liquid on the bottom, most of the onion slices were still raw and solid, and the butter hadn't melted on top. Disappointed.

A great read for anyone beginning to cook with an instant pot. The recipes are diverse and utilize all the different possibilities within the instant pot.

This book does an excellent job of explaining the Instapot. What it does and how it works. They get very specific about the operation of the device, how to clean it and how to cook with it. Even if you are not going to use the recipes, this book has great information on how to operate the Instapot.
