    I love my Instant Pot, Instant Pots actually. I have both the 6 and 8 quart and use them both constantly. The 8 qt is mostly used for chicken broth and soups that I can freeze. Everything else goes in the 6 qt.

    I use mine all the time. I love it. Would definitely buy another one immediately if mine broke.

    I really like it for meal prep on the weekends. Beans (no soaking), bone broth, curries, soups, corned beef roasts, chicken for tacos, etc) and yogurt.

    Yes, some things are better on the stove or oven (think pan fried salmon, etc), but I am a high protein person who cooks in bulk on the weekend so I don't have to cook that much during the week. I prepare the protein and add the sides.
