Is instant pot good for beginners?

Because the Instant Pot is a pressure cooker and slow cooker wrapped up in one (with a bonus Sauté function, no less), it’s designed to help you remove the guesswork of figuring out the ideal amount of heat, pressure, and time your food needs. It’s great for beginner cooking and simple meals, like stews and oatmeal.

How do I set up my instant pot?

Add 3 cups of cool water to the inner pot. Check that the silicone sealing ring is fitted properly into the Instant Pot lid. Place the lid on the Instant Pot and turn it clockwise until it is in the closed position. Your Instant Pot will chime each time you close and open the lid (if the Instant Pot is plugged in).
