I have an instant pot, my first pressure cooker ever, in the mail right now. I'm really hoping the convenience factor will help overcome my laziness to cook real food! I buy real food but then don't want to spend the time making it, on top of learning new recipes. The linked videos above are great, it really makes it feel simple, which can help overcome that mental hurdle of mine!

I have a *really, really* old Presto 4 quart pressure cooker which I admit spends most of its life either making bone broth or cooking dried beans (I do the soak overnight pre-treatment method). 25 years ago, I happened to find a stainless straight sided basket with wire handles and small wire feet, that fits perfectly into the cooker. This is incredibly handy for both making broth and cooking beans. When the cooker's cool enough to open, I can just lift the basket out, leaving the liquid behind. In the winter, I always stick a matching pot lid on the cooker and allow the cooker to cool in the house. In the summer, it's easy enough to carry it outside to cool.

This year I cut the turkey up in to pieces in was able to do it in the insta pot !  :-)     I used 2 8 quart pans.       I bought an extra turkey,   and in about 4 months I will do this again.    


I love the Insta Pot, but a Carvey is what is next on my list being able to pressure can would be the dream for me.
