      Hi Theresa,

      There seems to be some confusion.

      The app is only available on google play and apple app store for android and apple devices.

      The recipes on our site are the same as on our app. Which both are updated frequently. There are currently over 1000 and counting.

    I have never been more disappointed. I have an Auro Pro and am looking for main dish/poultry Sous Vide recipes. This app provides 14 Sous Vide recipes or which 9 are meat recipes. None of those recipes are chicken recipes. I honestly would return the InstantPot Aura Pro if I could. I have spent nearly two months looking for decent recipes and so far the Aura Pro has found a place at the back of my pantry taking up valuable pantry space.

      Hi MJ Fairweather,

      We are sorry to hear it is sitting in the back of your pantry.

      We are working on getting more recipes dedicated to our multicooker line specifically.

      The sous vide cooking temperatures for various foods items are available in the manual or on our site.

      The temperature you would set it to would be based on the cut, and season to your liking. You can use any sous vide recipe.

      The Slow Cooker program can use any slow cooker recipe.

      Bake and roast allow setting to a temperature similar to oven recipes. The Aura Pro will require a longer cooking time compared to an oven.

    I received the Aura Pro 8qt multi-cooker. I downloaded the recipe app. You have to select your piece of equipment and the multi-cooker is not listed only the pressure cooker types.
    There is a small recipe book that came with it but certainly not worth what I paid for it if I cannot find more recipes. Whenever I google it says it for the Aura but then they are all pressure cooker recipes.

      Hi Margaret,

      It depends on which Instant Pot product you have. If you are referring to our Instant Pot Multi-Use Pressure Cookers, any pressure cooking program will need water type liquid to come to pressure and cook. Please refer to your manual for the minimum amount for your unit. For non-pressure cooking programs or multicookers there is no minimum amount of liquid required.

      Hi Robbie,

      You definitely can use leftover meat in a recipe. You could pressure cook it but you may need to reduce the cooking time a little to avoid overcooking the leftover meat. The easy way is to follow the recipe regardless if you have leftover meat. The more detailed way would be looking at the ingredients in the recipe and determine which has the longest cooking time based on our cooking time chart (https://instantpot.com/instantpot-cooking-time/) and adjust the recipe to that cooking time.

          You can use any Instant Pot pressure cooking recipe available on our app. Our app allows you to adjust the serving size and it will automatically adjust the ingredients listed. The recipes are initially designed for the 6 Quart as that is the most popular size, which can be halved to fit 3 Quart models. The recipe cooking time will remain the same even if the serving size was adjusted.

      Chris Wrinn says:

      Hi Jo Anne,

      A grey ring around the yolk is an indication that they were a little overcooked. Can I ask how much water you used?

      The more water used would take longer to pressurize which the produced steam could slightly cook the delicate eggs as it pressurizes. Eggs will also continue cooking after the cook time is up and while the unit is still under pressure. Did you do a quick release or a natural release? Eggs will also continue cooking from residual heat even after removing from the heat, which is why an ice bath is important to quickly cool down the eggs. With all those areas in mind to ensure eggs are cooked longer than needed, there has been a great success with using 5-5-5 recipe.

      The 5-5-5 method uses a cup of water and 5 minutes cook time, 5-minute natural release then quick release, and then immediately into an ice bath for 5 minutes.

          Hi Michael,

          Congratulations on purchasing your first Instant Pot Multi-Use Pressure Cooker. Welcome to the world of Instant Pot.

          Eggs are one item that the cooking time is comparable to the stove. The big reason users prefer to use their Instant Pot Multi-Use Pressure cooker for eggs versus doing it on the stove is that they peel easier.

          Food items that you see the most reduction in cooking times are stove recipes that call for longer cooking times such as stews, braising, slow cooking, broths especially if frozen or tough cuts of meat are used.

    Could you please tell me how many servings I should increase the recipe to for the 8 qt instapot? Are the recipes for the 6 qt and if it says 4 servings then what is the max I can Increase it to for the 8 qt? 6? 7? 8? It would be helpful if you could specify the amount per qt size. I purchased the larger one so I could make more at one time but the app. Does not give specific details to allow conversion.

      Chris Wrinn says:

      Hello Denise,

      There is no exact serving increase between 6 Quart and 8 Quart models as recipe servings size is not based on the model but determined by the creator of the specific recipe. Majority of recipes are designed for 6 quarts as that is the most common size. In respect to all max lines depending on the food type, a good guideline is a 6 quart is around 4-6 servings and an 8 quart is around 6-8 servings. Our app allows you to adjust the servings and it automatically adjusts ingredients to match your chosen serving size.

    • Chris Wrinn
      Chris Wrinn says:

      Hi Linda,

      You do not have to fully convert 6 Quart recipes to work for an 8 Quart. The key difference is that an 8 Quart needs a little more liquid to pressurize. For 6 Quarts, it is a minimum of 1.5 cups of liquid to pressurize, where 8 Quarts needs 2 cups of liquid. So if a recipe calls for less then 2 cups of liquid ensure to use 2 cups minimum, this will allow any recipe to work without the need to convert.

      If you wanted to increase the serving size of a recipe, our Instant Pot app allows you to increase or decrease the serving size and adjusts the amount of each ingredient.

          The 8 quart needs a minimum of 2 cups of water to pressure cook.

          We recommend 3 cups of water during the initial test, would that be the part you are referring to? The initial test is to ensure the unit is functioning correctly and to get familiar with pressure cooking. After completing the initial test you can use a minimum of two cups of watery liquid for cooking or the amount instructed by the recipe.

None of the recipes I have looked at denote low or high pressure. How do I know what to use?

      If you are experiencing burn error there are three ways to prevent this:

      -Add oil
      -Use low pressure

          Yes, any cooking technique has a learning curve.
          Pressure cooking has many variables that affect the outcome: altitude (affects time to build pressure), starting food temperatures, and with rice- starchiness of type used, starch/sugar is prone to sticking and burning.
          Trial and error is how most of us learn any new cooking method.

          If you include preheating, cook and depressurizing time it is comparable to a stovetop. The big difference is you have to watch the stovetop, turn down the heat and then cover at the correct times. While the Instant Pot, once you have inputted your desired settings, allows you to walk away without the need to constantly watch over your food.

    Hi. I just received a 3 qt Instant Pot for my birthday and I’m so excited! 🙂 I tried preparing veggies (to start), but I turned the unit off when steam began escaping as pressure was initially building. I later read that isn’t unusual as the pot builds pressure (hope I’m understanding correctly). The question I have is this: I panicked and turned off the unit because the pressure valve was up and it seemed I should be able to push it downward? It’s standing up and loose (normal, I’ve read). Does the valve remain up at all times or should I be able to push it downward? I’ve searched everywhere and never a mention of this. Guess I’m the only “slow” one. 🙂 Thank you in advance! I can’t wait to start cooking!

      Hello Cynthia,

      Thank you for reaching out. Please note that your steam release valve should be set to the “Sealing” position when pressure is building. The float valve will rise once pressure has been built. It is normal for steam to leak during this initial pressurization stage.

      If steam is still escaping after the float valve has risen please create a support ticket at the following link, https://support.instantpot.com/. A customer service representative will be in contact within 24-48 hours.

      Hello Rebecaa,

      Great question! As a standard recipes are designed for the 6 quart pot size, however, as a rule of thumb simply half recipe for the 3 quart size.

      In addition, there would be no change in the cooking times between the different Instant Pot sizes as the temperature ranges for all of the pots are the same. The difference you would see between the different sizes is that the larger sizes require more wattage to power and heat the larger heating element to the correct temperature range. You may therefore find a shorter preheating period for the 3 quart size models.

      Please let us know should you have any other questions or require any further assistance!

In the meantime please note that all recipes are designed for the 6 Quart, unless otherwise stated. For the 3 Quart simply half the recipe, and for the 8 Quart the standard recipe will produce the same results.

          Please feel free to reach out with any further feedback!

          Kind Regards,

          I agree! It’s not clear when reading the recipes what size pot they are for. I recommend, too, that the recipe book and recipes on sites and apps clearly state they are for the 6 quart. I’m disappointed now I did not buy the 6 quart since it seems the 3 quart is an after thought. I also have trouble knowing what size the accessories are since I now need a steamer basket.

    I made stuffed peppers in my instant pot DUO plus 60 on slow cooker on more for 8 hrs. and peppers were not done. I put in oven for 1-1/2 hrs. What am I doing wrong.

      Hello Carol,

      Thank you for reaching out! I am sorry to hear about your issue with slow cooking, I’ll be happy to help!

      First, could you confirm that the “Delay Timer” was not accidentally selected, users have reported this as being the issue in the past. You will know if it has been selected as the “Delay Timer” is activated the LED will be illuminated on the “Delay Timer” or “Timer” button.

      If this was not the issue, please ensure you were slow cooking with the lid attached and the steam release set to the “Venting” position. Also please note that the temperature can be adjusted between “Low”, “Normal”, or “More”, depending on your model this is acheived by either pressing the “Slow Cook” button repeatedly, or pressing the “Adjust” button.

      Please let me know if this solves your issue, if not please contact myself and we will discuss further steps.

      Looking forward to your response!

      Kind Regards,
      Sorley O

        Thanks for your reply. I did have the setting on more. I used the glass lid on the instant pot. Do I have to use the original lid when cooking on slow cooker.

    I received the DUO80 8 qt, 7 in 1, as a Christmas present. I am new to the IP world and am very intimidated cooking with the IP. I have a large family and want to utilize the 8 qt to it’s fullest. All cookbooks and internet recipes I have found are designed for 6 qt, with exception of a few. The other night, I made Turkey Tikki Marsala. I wanted to double the recipe, but didn’t know how, so I made one batch, poured it into a bowl and made another. I did the same with a Kalua Pig recipe. This is not only a waste of my time, but not using the machine to it’s maximum capability. My question is how do I increase the existing recipe(s) from a 6 qt to an 8 qt without comprising the original recipe’s integrity? As in the case of the Turkey Tikki Marsala, do I increase the meat and liquids and the seasons? As in the case of the Kalua Pig, if the recipe calls for 4 lbs of Pork Butt and 1/2 C of water, how much meat and liquids do I need to increase it for an 8 qt IP, what about the seasons? Thank you for your help. Holly

      Huh, I must be posting my comments incorrectly, because everyone seams to receive replies in a timely basis (within 2-3 days) and it’s been over two weeks and my comment status still says, “Your comment is awaiting moderation”. Will someone please inform me what this means and/or tell me how to correctly post my comment/question on Instant Pot. Thank you, Holly

      1. The recipes can be used in an 8 Quart Instant Pot (with no changes).
      2. Make sure the minimum liquid levels are met, for example, 6 Quart minimum is 1.5 cups and 8 Quart minimum is 2 cups.
      3. In general, you can increase recipes by 1/4 and this includes increasing all ingredients with the exception of meat. Be sure to keep ingredients below the safety level of 2/3 marking in the pot.
      4. For a meat roast, please see our cooking time page as a reference: https://instantpot.com/instantpot-cooking-time/

        I also have an 8 quart instant pot I received for Christmas and have had a hard time with the recipes as their designed for the 6 qt, not the 8 qt.
        So to clarify, you’re saying NOT to increase the amount of meat for the 8 qt pot? Only increase the water, seasonings, grains/veggies by 1/4? This will not properly feed a larger family. Therefore, this solution leaves me seriously regretting the 8qt and wishing I had the 6 qt, or had skipped instant pot altogether.

          Hi Deb,

          You can increase the amount of meat in a recipe. The reason it was singled out was because it is the only ingredient, if you increase the amount, you may have to increase the stated cooking time. Please see our Cooking Timetable if you are adjusting the amount of meat in a recipe.
          https://instantpot.com/instantpot-cooking-time/
          The other ingredients mentioned, if the quantity is increased, will have no change to cooking time.

      .67 teaspoons needed 6.25 =5/8 teaspoon or 11/16 = 6.50 3/4 teaspoons = 6.75 I’d say 3/4 teaspoons. Meat you need 5.36lb.

    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: https://instantpot.com/instantpot-cooking-time/

        Hi Cathy,

        At this time we, unfortunately, do not have any goose recipes in our collection. With Thanksgiving season approaching for both Canada and the United States, a blog may have released a pressure cooked goose recipe. If there is ever a recipe that is not yet on our app or site, Google the recipe name and add Instant Pot, there may be a recipe that a chef or blogger created.

          Hi Dina,

          At this time we, unfortunately, do not have any goose recipes in our collection. We get many recipes from bloggers, one may have released a pressure cooked goose recipe. If there is ever a recipe that is not yet on our app or site, Google the recipe name and add Instant Pot, there may be a recipe that a chef or blogger created. If any recipe you come across is designed for a stovetop pressure cooker, increase the cooking time by 7-15%, starting with a 7% increase to ensure it does not overcook.

    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.

    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.

    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
