    Instant Pot Question!

    I have a question! We are looking to replace the crock pot on our big truck. We are thinking about an instant potr instead. I have two questions, does anyone know if the pot pulls more power than the crock, and can you use crock pot liners in them?

    Thank you for any help!

    I used liners in our crock pot but haven't in our instant pot. Seems to easier to clean imo
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    It seems you could use the crock pot liners when you use the IP as a slow cooker, but not when you use it as a pressure cooker.

    I've also heard less than stellar reviews for the IP as a slow cooker. (Heat is just at the bottom vs all around for a traditional slow cooker.)

    I agree with this. I do know that it seems like people who have had bad results as a slow cooker are not using the lid on venting (they have it on sealing) which seems to cause some problems.

    Thanks guys! Liner is very useful, when dealing with clean up when you don't always have convenient access to a sink you can really do dishes in! And good to know about its ability as a slow cooker as well. In the end I might get one for the house first so I can really utilize what it can do, before I send off one with the husband!

    I agree with not being as good of a slow cooker but they do make a glass lid for it for like $15 which I did buy and use to keep things warm when they are done with pressure. I haven't had any issues with cleanup but it would not work with a liner with the normal lid.

    We bought a casserole style Crock-Pot -convenient to store in the truck-slides under the couch! Made chicken in it last night already! I am going to save the instant pot for the home kitchen for now!
