I expected there to be a learning curve, but none of the foods have come out just right and it certainly hasn't made meal prep easier or faster like so many people rave about.

We use an IP almost weekly and have found it works well for some things and not for others. We used it for rice and lentils once only because our rice cooker couldn't hold the amount we needed and the texture of the rice was not great. But it's amazing for cooking dried beans without soaking. We also use it to make whole chicken that is frozen without defrosting. I know some people use their IP for everything, but generally our IP meals are recipes that would take a day or more otherwise. Maybe we're just picky about texture.

Problem for me is I'm not the most tech savvy person and pen and paper work best for me. I can't wait to get a skip book. I think that's going to work, but sad to have to wait until April. Gonna have to spend some time making a notebook.

I’ve also been trying to finish “clean a kitchen” forever and it’s doing me in because it just gets dirty faster than I can clean it! Let’s set that as a goal for a week from now, see if the boost of motivation helps.
