You're going to love it Bob. That taco soup you will be making is on my list too.I ordered an Instant Pot Friday, a steamer basket and springform pan for it yesterday, all from Amazon.
Delivery date was to be tomorrow. The IP came yesterday, and the other two items today.
I'm sure the items are so popular that they were all in stock locally.
I guess every forum has to have someone that's an expert on everything.To each his own Larry. The IP in my opinion is not just another counter top item it's a multi task cooker that can do a lot more than you think. You list multiple items to do the same thing that one IP can do. No it can't deep fry or make bread. But that's not it's purpose. I can't agree with your opinions as you have never tried one or I assume had anything made in one.
The quality of the food is excellent and clean up is one pot and it will cook as fast as any antique pressure cooker.
I know Fagor has brought them out to jump on the bandwagon so to speak. I still regardless tend to dislike plug in counter top appliances. Maybe thanks to coming home one day to the smell of burning Chineseum rubber and plastic. My brother and sister in law have an IP. She loves it. I have eaten food prepped in them as well. No different than a regular (as some call it "antique") but than with a couple good cooking vessels as I mentioned I can do everything the IP can do (true a little more skill is involved) BUT I can truly multitask (all at the same time) with what I have. So yeah while I can't just dump stuff in a pot and push a button I can still have far better control and do everything I need at top quality and without the risk of that wonderful aroma that greeted me after work one day. Admittedly not an IP or that brand product even. It was a bread machine. But it scared me enough to never trust set and forget type counter appliances again. Obviously I have a toaster and my KitchenAid Mixers, plus my food processors by Cuisinart but those are not set, forget and walk away appliances. HEck my last microwave failed in a spectacular way ith sparks fire and smoke. Again thank heavens it was not a walk away type appliance.Larry...
Years ago we disposed of our ancient stove-top pressure cookers. Now we are getting ready to dispose of our often used but ancient crock pot.
They have been replaced with an 8 qt Multi-cooker ! One of those fancy-dandy electric / electronic do-dads that sits up on the kitchen counter.
And it's one manufactured by Zavor, the same team that brought you your Fagor stove-top model.
Love living in AZ except my old body doesn't like the cold anymore. In the Prescott area I can drive 15 minuets from our home and be at Willow lake in the pines watching the eagles hunting for fish to feed their young ones. Exploring ancient Indian ruins are just 30 minuets away. Target shooting in the national forest 20 minuets away.Hello to all my Arizona forum friends! Passing through your beautiful state on I-40 tonight. Clear skies, 24*F, heavens full of stars. Venus is bright in the western sky leading us home.
Less than a couple of hours from Phoenix and both terrain & weather change drastically.So it must be the elevation because I finally looked on a map and see it's not far from Phoenix. I would also imagine though while you see cold it doesn't stick around for 6 months like here
My wife and I left Flagstaff in a heavy snowstorm back in March 2018, and we were still showing signs of the sun we'd picked up at the ballparks in Phoenix just a couple of days before.It seems so odd to hear the words "cold" and "AZ" in the same sentence. I still can't get beyond it being one big hot desert
