Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default How Many Instant Pot Cooker Do We Have Here???

We currently own 3. Two of the 6 quarts and we just bought an 8 quart that we've not used yet.


I'll share some recipes if there is interest.

I have the big one. Made a pot of beans in it the other day. Pressure cooking the beans with the bacon infuses them with that good, smoky bacon flavor you just can't get by boiling them all day.

We have one, six quart I believe. We've cooked several types of beans in it. I still soak the beans for 4 to 6 hours before cooking. Also changing the water several times before cooking. Here's a great recipe for baked beans (that I cook at least once a month):

If you are a fan of boiled peanuts, they can be cooked in an hour for green peanuts or 1.5 hours for dried peanuts.

We use ours a lot. Soup, bone broth, greens ,etc.

I haven't read your link yet, but what's the purpose of changing the water so much?

I normally use the same water/broth from start to finish.

But I'm sure you have your reasoning.

ETA: OK, that recipe looks amazing. But I'm still curious about the water part.

That's my favorite. Dried beans from start to finish in 60 minutes!!!

Method #3 is the method that I use and it works for me and doesn't seem to affect the flavor of the beans any.

Hmmm, according to Method #2, it wouldn't be necessary when pressure cooking.
But then again, sometimes my co-workers need getting even with.

Good point but I'm not taking any chances around my sweet wife.
