    To be fair, I haven't made any of the recipes...yet. However, my InstantPot and I are BFFs and I use it a LOT. The first thing I love about this cookbook is that it isn't about a can of soup this and a jar of that. 99% of the recipes are all scratch recipes. There are Asian influenced recipes such as Pho or the Asian Short Rib-Noodles Bowl. There are Thai influenced recipes such as green curry chicken. The Philly-Cheese French Dip sandwiches look fantastic. I also like that there are lots of rec To be fair, I haven't made any of the recipes...yet. However, my InstantPot and I are BFFs and I use it a LOT. The first thing I love about this cookbook is that it isn't about a can of soup this and a jar of that. 99% of the recipes are all scratch recipes. There are Asian influenced recipes such as Pho or the Asian Short Rib-Noodles Bowl. There are Thai influenced recipes such as green curry chicken. The Philly-Cheese French Dip sandwiches look fantastic. I also like that there are lots of recipes to use the slow-cooker feature-- and this will be a first for me. There's One-Pot Instant Lasagna (well, this one uses a jar of spaghetti sauce) that looks easy and simple. Morrocan Lamb Shanks with Dates... count me in! Pevuvian Chicken Bowls with Green Sauce... sounds different and flavorful...and I've bookmarked that one. There's Italian and Mexican influence recipes as well.I must make the Cheesy Chicken Instant Mac with Veggies. I love that there's carrots and spinach in the recipe...so it's got some healthy stuff mixed in with the cheese and cream cheese. I happen to have two frozen lobster tails that will be perfect for the Steamed Lobster Tail with Meuniere Sauce. Yummy! The beans and grains section is loaded with recipes I want to make. The Caribbean Rice & Beans has my attention, with black beans, ginger, coconut milk and a habanero. Whoo-hoo! I must make the Ham & Sweet Corn Risotto. It looks simple and delicious. The dessert section is lovely, too. I've made a few cheesecakes in my Insant Pot, and want to make pots de creme and creme brulee. This book has the recipes, and includes a bread pudding...and even homemade orange marmalade. I'm excited to finally make my own yogurt. There's step-by-step photos that makes me feel confident that I can do this! Almost every recipes has a beautifully styled color photo, and that makes me very happy. From Beans & Grains, Vegetables, Soups, Stews & Chili to Desserts, Sauces, Spreads and Jams there are plenty of intriguing recipes. I even saw a few recipes from familiar bloggers that look fantastic. I bought my copy of Costco for under $14.00. This book is a great investment. I'm going to tell my friends who bought an InstantPot, and it's still in the box, to get this book. There's great information, helpful photos and enough recipe variety to please anyone. I'll update my review once I make a few recipes. I'm confident they'll be great.

    A good range of recipes, everything I have tried so far is tasty, and there are actually recipes that use functions other than pressure cooking.

    As most people know, the recipe book that comes with the Instant Pot cooker is not particularly extensive, so I wanted more options. Unlike 'normal' cooking, with pressure cooking you can't just take the lid off to see how it's doing and then pop it back in for another 5 minutes. It takes a little time for the pressure to build up and you have to let that go every time to open the cooker, so it's important to have proper recipes to work from. There are lots of websites with free recipes, but that As most people know, the recipe book that comes with the Instant Pot cooker is not particularly extensive, so I wanted more options.

There are lots of websites with free recipes, but that's quite a cumbersome way to work when you just want to get the dinner on! This book has got plenty of variety and good instructions. I've tried several recipes and they have worked well. I'm not one to collect multiple recipe books so was looking for a comprehensive one and this fits the bill.

    Having only tried a few recipes, it’s pretty good. But be careful. There are some serious errors in the book. For example, the recipe “chicken toscana with white beans” on page 93 has no white beans in it anywhere. Makes me wonder if this big, but easy to catch error, was allowed to go through by the editors, what else is wrong. I’m now wondering about the two teaspoons of vanilla in the barbecue ribs and wondering if it’s supposed to be honey?

    Santa brought me an Instant Pot for Christmas! Have you ever seen an Instant Pot? It has more buttons and programs than my television remote control. It’s a little intimidating (and I cook a lot). I was very excited to see the library has several books on Instant Pot cooking both in print and in CloudLibrary. I put the book, Instant Pot Miracle, on hold and waited my turn. While I was waiting I checked out the other three print books and four CloudLibrary books. I like to be thorough and complet Santa brought me an Instant Pot for Christmas! Have you ever seen an Instant Pot? It has more buttons and programs than my television remote control. It’s a little intimidating (and I cook a lot). I was very excited to see the library has several books on Instant Pot cooking both in print and in CloudLibrary. I put the book, Instant Pot Miracle, on hold and waited my turn. While I was waiting I checked out the other three print books and four CloudLibrary books. I like to be thorough and completely understand something before I jump in. Of the other books, I would recommend The I Love My Instant Pot Recipe Book by Michelle Fagone that I borrowed on CloudLibrary. It has clear step-by-step instructions that include exactly what buttons to press on your machine. I copied many recipes to try later from that book. Back to the Instant Pot Miracle book … when it arrived at my branch, I was so excited! Instant Pot Miracle is an authorized cookbook by Instant Pot which lends some credibility to the 175 recipes it features. I immediately opened it and began scanning. It was fantastic! The book really breaks down every recipe. Each recipe includes a table that shows prep time, function buttons to press, closed pot time, total time, and which type of release will happen with the recipe. As with most cookbooks, this one has recipes ranging from breakfast to desserts. It has a few pictures, but not as many as I would have liked to see. Another neat feature is the tips included in the recipes. The tips give ideas as well as substitutes for ingredients. Pressure cooking charts are included at the end of the book along with an index. These charts are a life-saver and a quick reference. After all my research, I finally tried my first meal. I was so scared. I placed cut up onions and potatoes on the bottom of the pot, then added a stuffed whole chicken with a little butter. I set the pressure timer for 20 minutes. Yes, TWENTY minutes! Miraculously, the chicken cooked and was delicious! It normally takes an hour and a half in my oven when I cook this meal. I highly recommend the Instant Pot Miracle cookbook. It is available at your library in book format. Happy Reading! - Dione David, Reference Librarian

    Book #2 read on Instant Pot cooking and this is the hands-down winner over the Instant Pot Bible. I read cover to cover and I will use more than half of the recipes in this book. More accessible with fewer obscure ingredients - or more “in my pantry or common on my shopping list” ingredients.

Another plus are the general cooking tables included and the front section with Instant Pot introduction. This book is thinner than TIPB, has more photos and is organized better IMO. Some people may complain that the recipees can be found online and I agree - the book says it is a collection of the best IP blog recipes. But sometimes you don’t even know what you are looking for and this collection sparks me to both cook more with this appliance and to explore the blogs it sites for more recipes. I will probably donate my TIPB to my library sale and keep this book - and use it.

    I checked out all 8 IP cookbooks from my library. This is the only one on my Probably Buy list. Out of 175 recipes, I would likely try 80% of them. Simple instructions, not a ton of ingredients. The best feature is the chart at the top of each recipe listing Prep Time, Function (which button to push), Closed Pot Time, Total Time, and Release (natural or quick).

    I have been toying with getting an instant pot for about a year now, but I am old enough to know I have too many appliances in my kitchen! Therefore, I got a few of the instant pot cookbooks to see if anything inspires me before I purchase one. This book was the best one out of several that I have reviewed. I own a pressure cooker and a slow cooker, so I hesitate to buy another item, but recipes like Bacon Onion Jam, blue cheese appetizer cheesecake and sauteed brussels sprouts are enticing.

    Excellent recipe book for the instant pot! This is an excellent cookbook for those with eclectic tastes. The recipes are well written and easy to follow. I like the fact that the writer actually uses the present button s like beans,, rice, and meat. At the back of the book there are recipes for basics like broth and yogurt. There are also a lot of nice charts with cooking times for various foods when you opt to use the manual or pressure cooker buttons. I highly recommend this book

    Interesting recipes but not for beginners. There is a decent section at the beginning of the book on using the Instant Pot, but if all you want are basic to simple recipes this book is not for you.

    It's a cookbook, so I didn't read it, only skimmed it. The subtitle is "From Gourmet to Everyday...", but there is very little "everyday" here. The vast majority of the recipes look to replicate what you would get from a high-end restaurant, and require a lot of technique and/or ingredients the average person does not have - at least, not in my circles. The fancy stuff is fine, but how about including some normal recipes using normal foodstuffs for normal people? This book is not for those peopl It's a cookbook, so I didn't read it, only skimmed it.

If this book covered the basics in addition to all the frou-frou stuff, that would have been fine. But it doesn't. I'm glad I didn't buy the book. (It's from the public library.) I'm beginning to wish I hadn't bought the appliance if you have to jump through all these hoops in order to get a decent result.

I was looking for really simple healthy recipes that I could make for breakfast and dinner on weeknights that we are busy with kids activities.

    This is a decent Instant Pot cook book of the armload of them that I've read. A good "How to Use" in the beginning and then right into the recipes - 175 of them! The recipes are well organized with boldface type to indicate which button to press, even. The photos are rather uninspired, but even so, there should be more of them (and they should be better). I like the chapters on Sauces, Spreads & Jams and also Basics. Great Pressure Cooking Charts at the back, as well. This is a decent Instant Pot cook book of the armload of them that I've read.

    I love how many international dishes there are in this cookbook. Plenty of varied options in terms of healthiness as well, from low/no processed carbs to sweet desserts. Because these recipes are from bloggers, they can be hit or miss. I always end up adding more spices than they suggest. I do appreciate that this book has very accurate cooking and prep times, I hate it when a book underestimates prep time.

    I might have rated this higher if the authors had also tried recipes in the instant pot duo and if more recipes had been tested as both slow cook and pressure cooked rather than just slow cook. In other words, it’s not as useful as it could have been.

    A nice collection of IP recipes. I found several that I’m looking forward to trying. Most recipes call for fresh ingredients rather than shortcuts, which appeals to me and includes meals for all times of day as well as sauces & side dishes. \

    A nice book for someone with some cooking experience. I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner. Many of the recipes call for multiple cooking methods which somewhat negates the advantages of using your Instant Pot. A nice book for someone with some cooking experience.

    I have been going through Instant Pot cookbooks looking for recipes that are easy, that you don’t have to buy 5 new ingredients for each recipe and that a real family is going to eat, this isn’t that cookbook! I have some recipes I will try but this is not the cookbook I can’t live without!
