    I just bought the 8qt Duo plus and I love it. The first thing a tried was Canada goose in a sauce then added the carrots and potatoes, wonderful. The second recipe was my chipotle chili using Canada goose, it was so tender and awesome that one of my husbands hunting buddies ordered an instant pot that day. This is a fantastic product for all our wild game. But, I am having difficulties when the recipes don’t state 6qt or 8 qt used. Do I use more more than 1 cup of water on pot bottom when pressure cooking with trivet, which by the way is small in the 8qt. Do I need to increase some recipes like oatmeal, rice etc for the same results? It would really help to know what size the recipe is designed for, and how to convert it to the 8qt if making the 6qt recipe would create a different result in the 8qt.

      Hi Annette,
      It’s recommended to use 18 fl oz. / 500 ml of water or other liquids so enough steam can be generated to cook under pressure. These include cooking sauces, wine, beer, stocks, juices of fruits and vegetables. If you follow a recipe, you can use the same quantities and times as recommended for a 6 Quart as your 8 Quart with the same results, it’s just the 8 Quart has a larger capacity, which means you it can hold more food. If you are unsure of quantities of foods and liquids as you’d like to add more to your cooker, we have a great timesheet section on our website you can refer to which is helpful:

    It looks like you have a separate Android App for the Bluetooth version “Instant Pot Smart Cooker”. Its icon looks completely different and the developer email in the description is different so I thought at first it might be a fake. You should probably include a link to it above so people know it’s legit.

    I have just purchased the Gem Multicooker. When I go to the cooking time information, it looks like it is just suited for the pressure cookers. Where do I find equivalent information for the Multicooker?
    Also, it looks like the app is only for the pressure cooker. Is there another app for my product?Thank you.

    Could you please do a collaboration with Amazon’s Alexa. I have one with the video screen and i love it. I like my instapot but it is hard to readily find recipes on video.

    I am so disappointed in the basic instructions and lack of recipes available for this must have machine. I just don’t think it is to much to ask for you to give cooking times for : 3lbs of chicken, 2lbs of roast basic like you find in beginning cookbook which pressure cooking is to most people. Present it to your team.

    The recipes I quickly scanned (I just downloaded the app) state prep time, cooking time, and total. It does not take into consideration the time for QR in total time. It would be most helpful when quickly scanning recipes to know the time from start to table, especially when trying to quickly throw some dishes together.

    I just recently purchased the instant pot and downloaded the app for the recipes on my IPad, but it will not open. I have tried 3 times. Any suggestions.

    It will be nice to have on each recipe the script for the smart instant pot app. It is not that easy to transfer recipes to a script.

    How can I have both the ingredients and the instructions on the same page/screen on my ipad? Flipping back and forth during cooking is very inconvenient. Thanks
