Info for IP Beginners


So, you bought an Instant Pot…now what!?

Don’t be afraid of it…it’s not going to explode!
Electric pressure cookers are much safer to use than the old
stovetop cookers that you probably heard horror stories about.
The Instant Pot has 10 Proven Safety Mechanisms.

I know it sounds boring, but please do it anyway.
Taking the time to learn the basics will prevent frustration later on.
You don’t have to memorize everything, but at least give it a quick read.
If you run into a problem later you’ll remember that the manual addressed
that issue and then you can go back & read it more thoroughly.
Some manuals may not show the design change for the Anti-Block Shield.
Please see photo below that shows the 2 different types of shields:


Second Step…do the “Initial Test Run” (aka: “Water Test”).
It will give you a better understanding of how the Instant Pot works
& will help to ease any fear you might have about using it.


Now you’re ready to cook!
You can start with something easy like hard boiled eggs,
or you can jump right in with a more complicated recipe.
Start with what you’re comfortable with & progress from there.
Either way, it’s best to start with recipes written specifically for
the Instant Pot until you fully understand how to use it.

Cook times can be tricky when starting out. It’s best to err on the side of
under cooking. If not done when you open the pot just close it back up &
add a little more time. Keep notes for the next time you cook that recipe.

Don’t get frustrated if something doesn’t come out perfect.
With a little practice you’ll have your favorite dishes perfected.
Have fun learning!
