Instant Pot 101
SO MANY BUTTONS!
Don't worry! You only need to know THREE:
1) Manual/Pressure Cook: When we say cook at "High Pressure," this is the button you need. Just press it, then use the [+] and [-] buttons to adjust the cooking time. After a brief pause, the Instant Pot will beep to signal that it’s beginning the pressure cooking process. (Some Instant Pots, such a the Duo Evo Plus, have a "Start" button that you’ll need to press after adjusting the time to begin the pressure cooking.)
2) Sauté: Use this button when you need to reduce excess liquid or when you need to brown meats or sauté vegetables.
3) Keep Warm / Cancel: Use this button to cancel a function.
What about the SEAL or VENT positions, what do I need to do?
Very simple: For Seeti' meal kits, you will slide the lever to SEAL to start. Once you are ready to release pressure, move the lever to VENT to let some of the pressure dissipate.
