There is so much information in this book - how to use pressure cookers, how to cook almost anything in them - with convenient charts you can easily refer to. There is even a lot about choosing a pressure cooker, which might be better if I hadn't bought it after getting my instant pot. We have already tried three recipes - all of which were hits for my family. I will get a lot of use out of this book! ...more

I got this as a treat for myself and am sorry to say I was really disappointed. I never splurge on myself and it's nearly useless for me.

I ordered this book to see if I could find some good vegetarian/vegan recipes to use my new Instant Pot. I already have a stovetop pressure cooker and am very comfortable with it, but I was fairly disappointed with my Instant Pot and wanted to find some recipes to make it worth the huge price tag. I'm basically using the thing for artichokes and dried beans, an

The information regarding getting started with your IP and the cooking times is invaluable, but the recipes themselves weren't all that interesting to me. Not all of the ingredients are readily found or financially feasible in my area. I still think it's worth it for the cooking time charts and information! ...more

I just got this cookbook for my birthday, so I haven't made anything out of it yet. But, there is a lot of very helpful information and many tips about pressure cooking, and the recipes look great. I can't wait to make something from this! ...more

Since childhood, I've been scared of the stovetop pressure cooker. Its gruesome howl (jiggle top) has always kept me at bay- far from the kitchen. My mum would cook meat in it and because I'm not too fond of the smell of cooked meat I've developed a bad opinion about pressure cookers.

Four years ago, I got an electric pressure cooker as a present, and I didn't really know what to use it for. For a few years, I've only cooked rice and lentils from time to time, and I've been quite happy with the r

In Chapter 4, Grains, Late Summer or Early Fall Vegetable Quinoa Salad utilizes tomatillos (often used in Mexican cooking) for their tart flavor. I love quinoa, so I knew I would love this salad. It also incorporates zingy garlic, sweet red bell pepper & tomato, and refreshing scallions & cilantro. This would be great for a potluck or picnic. Rating: 5/5

In Chapter 5, Beans, Cannellini Beans with Gremolata is high in protein and has great flavor. The cannellini beans become creamy when pressure c

Since I got an Instant Pot for Christmas, I've been trying to figure out what to do with it, and I figured an actual cookbook for it would be an easier place to start than with trying to translate regular cookbook instructions into pressure cooker instructions. So I was excited to find out how many awesome and totally lazy meals I can make in that thing! This book though? It's not the one.

First of all, it's one of those super annoying ones with select photos only in a section in the middle. The

Really, really thoughtful introduction (honestly, worth buying the book just for that!) that was great orienting myself to the pressure cooker. The recipes were a bit fussy and didn't seem worth the extra effort to me. I only tried a few, so maybe I tried the wrong ones. But the book just seemed underwhelming. ...more

This is one of the most popular cookbooks to use as a reference as well as learn how to get the most of your Instant Pot. It certainly is a wealth of information but unless there's a newer edition, I heartily recommend you get the actual cookbook, not the Kindle version.

The organisation was a mystery, and difficult to navigate. My first complaint is that I always use dark mode but the book starts out with a weird red text then adds a blue one, both barely visible against black. Fine, I changed

Hello, I want to write a little review about the good work of doctor Ojamo, who cured me from HSV 1&2 for just 2 week with his herbal medicine, I never believe I can be cured again and have a good life like others, I always regretted the day I got diagnose with this virus, I become lost of hope when my doctor told me there is no cure for it, Well I am so grateful for my helper who get me cured with his herbal medicine, I went online in search of anything that can help me because I can't deal wit ...more

I have been suffering from Herpes for the past 3 years and 8 months, and ever since then i have been taking series of treatment but there was no improvement until i came across testimonies of Dr. Ojamo on how he has been curing different people from different diseases all over the world, then i contacted him as well. After our conversation he sent me the medicine which i took according to his instructions. When i was done taking the herbal medicine i went for a medical checkup and to my greatest ...more

I received a pressure cooker a few years ago for my birthday. In all that time, I only used it twice and with horrific results. I decided it was time to use it or donate it, and so my search for pressure cooker cookbooks began. The first few chapters of this book inspired me to purchase my own copy. The step-by-step instructions on how to use my pressure cooker were invaluable. The recipes, however, are not at all inspiring so I will need more time to evaluate them. There are only a few photos a ...more

To start, the information given regarding pressure cooker usage was invaluable and in depth. I am not a vegetarian, but am beginning to drift that way in my food preferences, so while I have read other reviews by vegetarians who were not impressed with the recipes, as someone who is new to this eating lifestyle, I did find the better chunk very good. The last thing I really enjoyed were the seasoning mixes. As someone who is feeding a husband with a heart condition, salt has become my enemy and ...more

Got it very recently at a decent price and I question myself how did I live so long without it. As many Europeans, I had for ages pressure cookers and used them from time to time. Always had problems with dosage of liquids and duration. Not any more, Jill makes everything very clear. As a plus, there are a lot of interesting recipes. I didn`t even know that you can make a dish in the pressure cooker, I used it just to quick boil legumes or grains...So I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone inte ...more

This is a great book for those new to pressure cooking.
Some of the recipes are overly complicated and include extra steps that are unnecessary.
I will also say that I am in a vegan pressure cooking group on facebook. This author rubs me the wrong way with her comments. She is opinionated and pushy which makes me not want to support her or her book. At this point, I refuse to purchase her book.

The section explaining how to use your pressure cooker is the best I have seen. Though I wouldn't call it a "recipe" per se, I appreciate the guidance on cooking grains and legumes and addressing common issues in cooking them. I haven't tried any of the more complex recipes yet - but they are similarly clear and straightforward. And the knowledge I have gained about the cooker and how to work it has given me the confidence to move ahead and try more things. ...more

I bought this after I visited my best friend in December. So many really great pressure cooker recipes, that work regardless of whether you have a stove-top or electric pressure cooker. I've made a bunch of things from this cookbook, and they've all been lovely. And there are lots of tables and tips to help the novice pressure cooker user with cooking times and methods. ...more

This is a hard one to review. The information on how insta pots work and the cooking times for beans, rice, and grains was so helpful. It’s wonderful to have a book focused on foods our family eats, I avoid cookbooks with meats. Unfortunately the recipes I tried were just ok and my kids weren’t very excited by them.
Kim Veach
I was surprised to find that I never added this book to Goodreads. It's my "bible" for how to use my Instant Pot. The first few chapters should be required reading for anyone owning this appliance. And I have post-it flags on the charts for beans, grains, vegetables. Her recipes are great and very easy to understand. ...more

Good recipes, but difficult to find a recipe in a category because of the “flowery”names.
You should go through the book by sections to see what you want to make. Jill Nussinow has created a better index to her recipes, which can be downloaded from her site The Veggie Queen.

Not so scary!

I finally read this book after three years of it sitting on my shelf. I was intimidated. But, after reading her concepts, it’s simple. Not complicated or scary at all! I finally get to use my InstantPot to make a whole meal. 😊

This is definitely a “healthy vegan” book, which isn’t always my flavor. I didn’t like the lack of pictures, as it’s hard for me to get excited about a dish when I’m only reading about it. The basic instructions for pressure cooking were nice, but it lacked anything super interesting to me.

Easy and fast recipes, but completely lacking in flavor. Skip this book if you are not comfortable coming up with your own spices to provide flavor.
