New cookbook: "How to Instant Pot"
Fan of the Instant Pot? Puzzled by it? Intrigued? My latest cookbook, How to Instant Pot, will help you get the most from the Instant Pot, whether you're a beginner or an expert.

"How to Instant Pot" launches this month. It's both a guide to understanding the Instant Pot and a collection of over 100 tested recipes crafted to take advantage of the Instant Pot’s virtues. Make no-stir risotto. Create yogurt and crème fraîche. Cook chili, stews and soups from scratch. (And beans! So many plates of beans.)

I've heard from a lot of people who've received an Instant Pot as a gift but left it in the box because they couldn't make heads or tails of it. I've also heard from people who use their Instant Pot all the time. Each group should get something out of this book.

MetaFilter users have been so supportive of my cookbooks in the past. I deeply appreciate that.

Preorder now to have "How to Instant Pot" in your hands at launch.

It occurs to me that because of my username on here, I should add: There are indeed recipes for meat in the book. (There are also recipes for not-meat.)

Oh man, I didn't know you were on MeFi! I love your waffle iron cookbook and will be bookmarking this one to check out.

Ooooh, tempting.

Are there a substantial number of not-meat recipes? It would be a bummer to buy the book and only be able to eat, say, a third of the dishes.

I love "Will It Waffle."
I love my Instant Pot.
Worlds are colliding.

I'm in the camp of people who use the IP more than daily. Hearing that people have them and don't take them out of the box makes me sad. I'd love to have a second one but I don't have the space or money. I'm looking forward to adding this to my bookshelf. I just cleaned out about 20 cookbooks I never use, but "Will It Waffle" remains, you may be pleased to know, and now it'll have a friend.

I pre-ordered "How to Instant Pot" a couple months ago. I have "Will it Skillet" and make a dish from it once a week. Your recipe style is easy to follow, informative, and tasty!

Thanks, for the kind words, jazon, Clinging and capricorn.:) I really appreciate that.

Banknote of the year, I'm not sure about the specific number/ratio of not-meat recipes. The idea was to make a cookbook that covered all the functions and included a variety of cuisines, but I haven't sat down and counted. I posted a little preview of the book's contents.

Just wanted to say: If you bought the book online and found it useful and/or amusing, can I ask you to leave a review? It really helps people discover the book in a very crowded market, which would really help me out.
