Instant Pot?

Postby tearhead » Sat Aug 18, 2018 10:56 pm

Just curious if anyone has made an instant pot part of their galley. I don't have one but am thinking of getting a 3-quart.

I would also like to know. My question would be if 6 quart would work good with 450 watts of solar and a 1000 watt inverter. Would it drain the battery ? I need the battery for Cpap at night.

Instead of an instant pot, consider a presto stainless steel pressure cooker paired with an induction burner. The burner has a timer function, so while it is not entirely set it and forget it, it mostly is.

A pressure cooker plus an induction acts like an instant pot, but the pressure cooker will never break and can be used as just a pot. The induction burner can be used for boiling, broiling, burning, etc.

The induction can be run off of solar. I have not yet, but I will be. We bring our pressure cooker, induction burner, and butane burner on every camping trip.

Ribs were awesome started in the pressure cooker and then finished on the grill.

Yes, Your induction burner and pressure cooker would last longer. I was thinking Instant pot because of the set it and forget it. When traveling. I could gas up and start the cooker drive for a time and have a good hot meal ready for me when I stop for the night. High power use when the sun is shining so I don't depleted the battery that I need for Cpap's at night.

Instant Pot wouldn't be used while driving because it cooks faster thanks to the pressure. That said I'll never own one. Even with all the pressure released it is still dangerous due to super heated liquid. The same thing that can happen when you microwave water in a cup for coffee.

The easy fix, jiggle/shake the Instant Pot before removing the lid. I've seen a test where the super heated liquid instantly re-pressurized the Instant Pot, popping the indicator back up on the lid. Danger averted.

Oh, yes, cooking while driving seems like a very bad idea to me. I did go ahead and get the Instant Pot. I think it will be great in the teardrop. It has a saute function, so could be a hot pot or cooking pot, is a slow cooker, and a pressure cooker. It makes amazing hard boiled eggs. There's a bit of a learning curve, but I think it will be great. :applause:
