How much was the 6QT? We are just 2 people, wonder if I should wait for a 6QT deal.

Unless you don't have space in your kitchen, the 8qt is way more versatile. We are also 2 people and don't regret having chosen the 8qt.

I love instant pot. As someone who doesnt want to take the time to learn how to cook. I can make decent meals with this. Its too easy.

8QT is the perfect one.

I used mine exactly twice since Christmas. Will probably never use it again. OTOH the induction cooktop I have gets quite the workout. The 6Qt was more than adequate for my 1 person family. Just couldn't figure out what to make in it...

The max is 15 psi. It takes longer to come to pressure. Unless you need the extra pressure I think any of the other models would be more convenient.

I have the Ultra and it works just fine, keep in mind that most of the recipes online are for the non ultra and sometimes figuring out which function to use takes guessing...

Basically all I am saying is other than looking more modern it is the same thing... never had the duo model but I have a feeling in terms of electronics and buttons they will last longer on the duo models.

I once spilled something close to the rotating dial and had to open it up and clean it since it would not turn properly and just grind. All good after that...

We have the 6qt ultra and use it almost daily. Which is surprising because most things we buy for the kitchen just sit in the cupboard

Rice:
- 1:1 rice to water. High pressure for 4 minutes and 10 minutes slow release
- Steam most vegetables - steamer basket so veggies are out of the water. High pressure for 0 minutes, quick release
- Perfect soft boiled eggs. high pressure for 3 minutes and quick release
- Chicken. Submerged in water with salt and rosemary. High pressure for 0 minutes and 10 minutes slow release

Rack of ribs..
Stew by searing the meat on the instant pot and deglazing..
Chili..
Cooking tough meats in 15-30 minutes..

I sound like an evangelist now

We have the Lux but would like to chime in that the Instant Pot is well worth the money. It's in constant use at our house: soups, chilli, braised beef, carne asada, steaming frozen dim sum and dumplings, cooking veggies in steamer basket, shrimp boil, pasta sauce...the list goes on...

Oh and congee!! So easy to make and love that I can set it to start and just walk away!

You can go to youtube and see the kinds of food you can make.

It is very versatile. I like to use the pressure cooker for meat. I use it to soften ribs and then cook on the grill.

I make different beans and lentils recipe. Soups. I make broths/stocks. Stew. Chili. Rice. Filipino food like Sinigang, Tinola, Nilaga.

If I am really lazy I just put a bunch of chicken and dump ginger, garlic and onions and when its done. I add Miso paste. Boom.

Great for steaming Fish, veggies and potatoes.

Easy to clean. Very mobile. All you need is a socket. The only complain is the rubber thing on the cover. It starts to smell if you do not air it out but that is a minor complaint.

Its an amazing gadget.

used to have an ultra, it was a terrific piece of kit. But then I switched over to ninja after a deal on the ninja foodi which also includes air frying, believe that deal was ~169 at costco. Will say instant pots def have a larger catalog of accessories and internet recipes for idiots like me who need to follow stuff to do the dot. Also helps that the ultra have a lot more preset programs tho I barely used most of them so the reduced programmings on the ninja isn't a program
