Reviews Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook

  • ValerieC
    I recently got an Instant Pot to replace my Breville that was one of the first electric pressure cookers on the market, but it's more than 10 years old and the control panel was very hard to see. I like the idea of preset buttons, and God knows there are a bazillion IP fans out there on Facebook and Pinterest, so recipes are easy to come by now. Even with my small amount of experience with an electric pressure cooker, I haven't made anything in m...

    The three stars is for the lack of pictures. If you're making a cookbook, put pictures of every recipe in it. Period. I don't even need them with the recipe, put pictures together at the end of the book, but please, put in pictures! Otherwise: the variety was nice, the pressure cooker tips were nice, and it was well organized. Overall, this is a pretty good collection of recipes. I tend to be picky about cookbooks, but the ratio of recipes I woul...

    Like half of America, I recently got an Instant Pot pressure cooker and am ready and willing to fall in love with it. So far, I'm in moderate like, not love, but this cookbook may push me over into a solid infatuation. The subtitle seems to promise too much — "Easy Recipes for Fast and Healthy Meals" — but, so far, it seems to be delivering. I like the balance of recipes, which are organized into breakfast; vegetables; beans and grains; soups...

    Fabulous recipesUsed pressure cooker during childhood. Never used one after married. Really fastest, easiest, stress free, economical way of cooking. So happy to read these recipes to learn the joy of cooking that awaits me when my instant pot arrives. Don't know which recipe to try first!!!
  • Candy
    Truly the Instant Pot Bible! More than just fabulous recipes. Helpful information about the parts of the pot, the presets and what they're used for, conversion charts and more. Once you have this book, you won't need any other. I have several other Instant Pot books, none can compare or come close to this book. I recommend this book very highly and I never write reviews.

    Great for a beginner Insightful and great for a beginner. Easy to navigate. However, not enough photos for my liking, only the chapter introduction has a photo.
  • Greymalkin
    Nice ideas with flavors that I don't usually see in pressure cooker cookbooks.
  • Lori
    A few good recipes, but the others are odd combinations. Overall, the ingredients are something you would have in your kitchen already (with a few exceptions, of course).If you have an adventurous palette, then this is for you. If you want ordinary, everyday meals, then look for something else.
  • Susan Kendrick
    Helpful when it comes to the ins and outs of the IP, but few of these recipes look like something my family would enjoy.
  • Laurie
    I just bought an Instantpot and wanted a good introduction with solid healthy recipes. This did the trick.
  • Ann Marie
    First let me say, I don't own an Instant Pot. I bought this cookbook in an effort to understand the hype. It turns out, this is an excellent cookbook even if you don't own one. All the food represented was real food, cooked with time tested methods in a new age way. I'm still not sure I'll buy an Instant Pot but I will try some of these recipes as the author makes it easy to think about how to make these recipes without one.
  • Roberta
    Great recipes...I wish there were more pictures.
  • Wulfwyn
    I got an Instant Pot for Christmas and excitedly picked up several cookbooks for it. This was one of them. I am so happy I chose this book! A good description of the Instant Pot and how to use/care for it starts the book off. The recipes are easy to follow. The ingredients are everyday ones for the most part. The author includes tips and variations with the recipes. Another thing I appreciated is the recipes contain some nutritional information, ...
  • Deena
    This is a pretty good cookbook for IP users. I've tried many of the recipes and all of them, save one, were successes. My only criticisms would be the lack of photos that others have mentioned, and also there are some recipes where they call for you to remove things from the pot in order to saute other ingredients but then never tell you when to add back that first ingredient (Beans, Sausage, and Greens recipe comes to mind immediately, but I thi...
  •  Thomas Delane
    Some info on the Ipot and cook timesWeird recipes. Not many American foods. The author must be a refugee from Europe or a veggie hippy dippy. Needs to spend time in cooking an American diner. Overall dont waste your money.
  • Dorla Dixon
    New to pressure cookingSkimmed the book and I'm ready to try several of the recipes. I'm new to pressure cooking. This book offers easy to follow instructions.
  • zuheila

  • Jeanette Hurrelbrink
    A good instruction cookbook for a new product. Not sure I will use thy type of recipes found in the book. Breakfast entries look good.
  • Stephani Austin
    Several helpful recipes, especially helpful for a pressure cooking beginner.
  • Ash
    Way too many meat recipes :( But just wanted to cookbook for Instant Pot. I got rid of this book once I found a good vegan book.
  • PoligirlReads
    Just okay. I wouldn't recommend this book for the recipes, but it was a useful resource for becoming more familiar with the capabilities of the Instant Pot (IP).This cookbook suffers from a distinct lack of pictures. This is the 21st century. I expect my cookbooks to have pictures, and lots of 'em. So that was a major reductor of stars. The other issue is that many of the recipes quite frankly do not sound particularly exciting or appetizing, or ...
  • Suzanne (Doppleganger)
    1. This book claims to be for the Instant Pot, which is known for having settings for rice, beans, soup, poultry, etc. Yet every single recipe tells you to use the manual setting. Not one use of the features and settings unique to the Instant Pot. I could have bought any pressure cooker cookbook.2. Teriyaki Pork Loin turned out great.3. Spiced Coconut Chicken and Rice: Cooking the bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs in the sauce made the sauce greasy...
  • Nadine
    I was debating on whether I would want a pressure cooker so I was pleased to get this book from the member giveaway on Librarything. It convinced me to buy one as the beginning clearly tells you what you can do and I had no idea I could sauté and slow cook in it as well. There are good chapter divisions for types of food and the recipes are clearly and logically written along with what pressure level and type of release to use. I will not buy or...
  • Robert
    Excellent, simple and tasty recipes that will teach you how to use an electric pressure cooker. I too had a conventional stove top pressure cooker that was a challenge to gauge the amount of pressure to use. These new electric pressure cookers take all that guesswork away. This book has an excellent introduction to explain the basics of the Instant Pot controls as well as handly reference tables for easy quick instructions on cooking beans, oatme...
  • Heidi Kirsch
    I do appreciate the educational bits in the beginning. I didn't think my cooker came with enough info. There is a good range of recipes but personally its not like Joy of Cooking or an everyday, all around cookbook. I have the Kindle version so don't know if its the same for print edition but one recipe runs into another. Instead of having its own page, or even clearly delineated title, one recipe sort of bleeds into the next. And not many photos...
  • Koren
    This was recommended to me because it contained NORMAL food and NORMAL recipes. It is so nice to finally have a resource for my Instant Pot! I appreciate the section at the beginning with the Do's and Don'ts of electric pressure cooking. I already have a list of recipes to make. I think several of these recipes could be easily modified for allergies/intolerances, but many recipes were flagged for special dietary needs (such as gluten free or vege...
  • Sunni
    We received this with our Instant Pot. We have found it very helpful as we learned all of the things that our Instant Pot can do. It has some good recipes, and for Instant Pot beginners it helps build a foundation of knowledge. There aren't many recipes that I can say were memorable, but of those I tried, none were bad. I would love to see more pictures, especially as we learned what to do and expect, but this book didn't have as many as I usuall...
  • Valerie
    I love my Instant Pot so far, but it is not intuitive to use. So I want cookbooks that walk me through, nay, that hold my hand as I uncertainly steam pressure sundry meats and legumes. I got this cookbook for very cheap and it's pretty clear why - not many recipes within, and the instructions are sorely lacking in instruction: ex. "Select Manual and cook at high pressure for 10 minutes." The part about adjusting your steam valve is left out. Othe...
  • Marjie Johnson
    Instant Pot is easy.I chose 5 stars because this Instant Pot cookbook really explains all possible times, techniques and safety details in an easy way that is simple and covers all the bases. I recently got an 11 methodsElectric pressure cooker. It is very important that you read and re-read the methods and all procedures to cook a quick and delicious meal. This cookbook is easy to understand and I would highly recommendit.
  • Kandy Kappler
    Yes!Fina!!y an eBook for the Instant pot that is great. Good variety in the recipes, no typographical errors and a pleasure to use. So many of the Instant Pot ebooks have a language barrier, huge mistakes using a stovetop pressure cooker even though it is about the Instant Pot. Some have been for the IP with only the slow cooker feature being used. This book has thought put into it. Thank you Laurel Randolph.
