Instant Pot Frequently Asked Questions
Cooking in an instant pot is super simple, but if this is one of your first times, check out these FAQs!
Once you figure it out, it’s a no-brainer, but at first, we were clueless. To put the instant pot lid on, make sure you hold the lid with the venting valve away from you. Turn the lid about a quarter way to the left, set the lid on, then turn it the opposite way. It will make a chiming noise once the lid is secured. It took a good 10 minutes to figure this out the first time!
Natural Pressure Release (NPR) is when you let your appliance release the pressure naturally. The pressure will release slowly & the lid will unlock when the float valve drops completely. It is best to use when cooking large cuts of meat or ingredients that are likely to foam like pasta or rice. With Quick Release (QR), you manually turn the valve from “SEALING” to “VENTING”, which will let the pressure go quickly. Be cautious with QR because the steam will shoot out of the top quickly! This is best to use with ingredients that you do not want to overcook like vegetables.
The “burn” message is likely appearing on the Instant Pot due to not having enough liquid inside the pot. At least 1/2 cup for the 3-quart pot, 1 cup for the 6-quart pot and 2 cups for the 8-quart pot is needed to cook. If the “burn” message appears on your Instant Pot, know that the stainless steel insert in your pot has turned off. This is a built-in preventive feature that reduces further damage to your Instant Pot. To solve, press the “cancel” button
then switch the Instant Pot to “VENTING” to release the pressure and remove any burnt debris from inside the Instant Pot.
