You can avoid these common problems using the Instant Pot with a few simple tips. Plus, get a free printable Instant Pot cooking times chart full of suggested cook times for various meats, vegetables, grains, beans, etc!
The second video in my Instant Pot for beginners series is up on YouTube this morning. I’m so excited to share with you these important tips to help you avoid common problems people experience as they learn to use their Instant Pots.
I want you to love your Instant Pot and to avoid the frustration that happens when your dinner doesn’t turn out or you can’t figure out why a recipe isn’t working.
In addition to Part 2 of the video series, I’m also sharing a printable I should have made years ago– an Instant Pot cooking times chart!

Instant Pot Cooking Chart
The times on this chart are based on my years of experience, but cook times can vary slightly according to personal preference, and location.
I also left a small space at the bottom of each category for you to add your own items to the chart.
