How to Instant Pot: Mastering All the Functions of the One Pot That Will Change the Way You Cook Reviews
As a newbie instant pot owner, this was EXACTLY was I was looking for! Real talk, I love the instant pot community and users, but it can get chaotic on the facebook page. This was so beautifully laid out, easy to read, and easy to use. I feel way more equipped to tackle more recipes!
Like so many other people, I recently acquired an Instant Pot and wanted to get a great cookbook to explore. HOW TO INSTANT POT by Daniel Shumski seemed like an interesting place to start. Unfortunately, I was really disappointed in the recipes I tried for this review.
First, the good. There is a nice and thorough introduction that explains a lot about how to actually use the Instant Pot. If you have an Instant Pot, you know that the manual that comes with the machine is lacking. This makes up fo ...more
I was on the fence about using an Instant Pot. For every positive "I couldn't live without this contraption" comment, there was a negative comment. When given the opportunity to review How to Instant Pot: Mastering All the Functions of the One Pot That Will Change the Way you Cook, I asked a friend to borrow her appliance to test out some recipes. I wanted to know if it was hype or legit.
As someone completely new to the Instant Pot phenomenon, I found this book incredibly useful. The first chapt ...more
Thank you to Daniel Shumski and Workman Publishing Company for the privilege to read this early released for an honest review;
I love, love, love that this book started out with an extensive guide on how to use the instant pot.
I always feel a little wary of cookbooks about devices without any instruction, meaning the books is definitely closed off to beginners (or anyone who might have picked a device up in number of ways second hand), and a little slightest by ones that only have a handful of ...more
I would like to thank Workman Publishing Company for providing me with a free electronic ARC of this book, via Netgalley, in exchange for an open and honest review.
Okay, starting with my honesty… I don’t own an Instant Pot. I do have a slow cooker/ pressure cooker all in one from Philips I was sent a few years ago to review and I do so love it. Being a fan of slow cooking and the occasional pressure cooking, I still felt this would be an interesting and useful cookbook. It was. But, as said, I d ...more
Back in the 1970s when Rival purchased Naxon and created the Crock-Pot name they revolutionized the way we make dinner. Now in the 2000s, we have the Instant Pot. This startling Canadian innovation is reinventing how we cook. It combines the functions of a covered pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yoghurt maker, steamer, and other functions like sautéing and food warming.
With “How To Instant Pot” from Daniel Shumski, author of “Will It Skillet?” and “Will It Waffle?“, you can learn how ...more
I personally don’t think that there can be too many Instant Pot cookbooks. Especially when they are written by “Mr. Waffle”, aka Daniel Shumski. Along with the de rigeur IP recipes for beef stew, Pinto Beans, No-stir Risotto (a game changer for me) , and stock, there are a few new-to-me ideas, including Caramelized Onions, roasted garlic, and cooked beets, and “baked” potatoes. I'm not a fan of yogurt, or fresh cheese, but if you are, there are some intriguing ideas here for making your own.
This is a valuable cookbook for someone who has just bought their first Instant Pot and who happens to be a dedicated carnivore. As a vegan, I felt this book was definitely not for me. And it's very slim pickings for a vegetarian as well. The book is also pretty light on the photo front. I like my cookbooks to have one for each recipe and this one does not.
I liked and bookmarked some of the tips givens (everything is better explained than in the Instant Pot manual) and some "basics" such as Faux ...more
