No ImageHow to Use an Instant Pot: A First-Timer’s Guide

  1. Toni Sarasua

    I think you information is great but I have a problem and need assistance. When I use the sauté button the sauté light stays on. I have tried everything including turning off my insta pot, unplugging, then turning it back on. The sauté light stays on. Can you please help me. Thank you Toni Sarasua

    Sara,

    This is awesome! My husband shook his head when my IP arrived, thinking it was another useless gadget that would end up in the garage, and I was determined to prove him wrong, but where oh where to start?

    You made it simple. Thanks for all the info.

    I couldn’t find this yesterday when I posted how to clean the silicone ring….this really works!! Easy! Fill the pot with 2 cups white vinegar or 1 cup white vinegar + 1 cup filtered water an a lemon rind or slice of lemon, seal the lid, run for 2 minutes on “steam” setting. Remove the ring and let it air dry. Should be free of smells. Purified water….a bottle of spring water works or water filtered from your refrigerator water dispenser.

    THANK YOU! This is the information I have been seeking. You answered all the questions I had in simple understandable language without making me feel like an idiot. I have used the IP several times but usually with concerns about just what I was doing. I did try the soup setting and it took forever. Thanks again.

    I noticed that many asked this question and are confused regarding the ‘Manual’ button or lack on one. I found the answer on instantpot.com/cookingtips : “Recipes may indicate to use the Manual or Pressure Cook Program. These terms are interchangeable.”
