Instant Pot - considering a purchase

Consider this a non-scientific poll For those of you with an Instant Pot, how long have you had it and if you have had it for a while are you using very often? Also, do you recommend the 5, 6 or 8 qt size??

Once a week or more. 6 qt is perfect for us. Love it.

I don't have one, but there is a Facebook group for the IP. You might look there for some input.

Have had mine for two years and love it. We are part-time fulltimers, so when living in the 5er, I use it multiple times a week. When we are in the house, I still use it at least once a week sometimes more. I use multiple functions, sometimes in cooking one dish, such as the sauté, followed by the pressure function and then on the warm function during serving. I have the 6 qt. Definitely worth the money and space.

We have had our 6QT a little over a year. We use it once per week on average I would guess but could certainly use it more.

Dale and Ruth,

Jo decided that she wanted a pressure cooker after seeing one that one of her sisters had.  However, for storage purposes and because of cooking mostly just for the two of us, she decided she wanted a 4 quart one instead of larger one.  She found one by GoWISE that suits her, and she really does like using it.  Instead of having to cook beans overnight, she can do them in a couple of hours with the GoWISE.  It is listed as a 6 in One model.  Neither of us have any idea of quality comparisons between the Instant Pot and the GoWISE.

Got my 6 qt before Christmas and use it about every two weeks - but then I don't cook every meal in the rig either. I love it, was worth making room in the cupboard for, and there are a million recipes everywhere.

The one-pot options are especially good for us.

We have the 6 quart and love it. We have had it for a couple of months. You may want to consider getting some stainless steel stackable inserts to cook pot in pot (when cooking more than one item at once or when you don't want the liquid to get into your food).
