    A friend gave me her like new Cook’s Essentials 4 qt. electric pressure cooker. I am now seeing one called the Instant Pot. Are these two items about the same thing? Can I use recipes I find for Instant Pot in my CE pressure cooker?

    Yes, you can use Instant Pot recipes with your Cook’s Essentials. They are both electric pressure cookers. Be aware, however, if the Instant Pot recipe tells you to press a specific button – even if your Cook’s Essentials has that SAME button it will likely be programmed to cook at a different time and temperature than the Instant Pot. For those recipes, just look-up the pressure cooking time for the main ingredient in our timing chart, and type-in that cooking time.
