  2. Thank you for the helpful information! I bought an Instant Pot in the recent Black Friday sale, and am making myself wait until Christmas before getting started. In the meantime, I’ve been trying to learn as much as I can about the cooker, and how to use it. This was a great and informative video!

    1. Time to open that box and go, Jennier!



  3. Thank you so much…I have had my pressure cooker for a year and have been afraid to use it!

    1. Catht – Step 1: Get it out of the box. ; )

      You can do it!



  4. Thank you so much. I have an electric pressure cooker but I’m not very confident with it. I have bought your books from Amazon but there is nothing like watching someone to do things right.
    I am a senior and this is my first attempt at pressure cooking so thanks for your help.
    I live in New Zealand.

    1. I’ve been doing in-person demos for years – and that’s my favorite way to teach. But I could never reach enough people or, enough places, so I decided to do a very extended demo on video. OK, a school.

      So glad to have a fan in New Zealand, and that I can show you how to do it.

      Welcome, Coleen!

  8. FABULOUS! This is so easy to understand and exactly what I was looking for!

  9. Can I use a 3 qt inner pot in my 6 qt IP lux?

    1. You could use the 3-qt inner pot for Pot-In-Pot cooking – say for rice. You would place the 3-qt inner pot on top of a trivet inside the 6-qt inner pot.

  10. In your meat/poultry charts, is the cooking time per pound or TOTAL cooking time? Thank you. We eat bison, would i use the elk meat cooking times?
    Thank you
