So I "did it" , I purchased myself an 8qt. Insta Pot from William Sonoma. I purchased a small inexpensive insta pot, at Kohls when this rage started ( about 2 years ago) , that one I nevr used and quickly returned for a refund. My original purchase was basically a glorified crock pot (some thing I already had two of) and not something I thought I would get much use of, while cooking for the two of us. After much consideration and the nudging from fellow foodie's I have decided to purchase this new larger upgraded version Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus 8-Qt. and Williams Sonoma Everyday Instant Pot Cookbook. I was considering the purchase of a sous-vide cooker and this insta pot offers that option as well as a rice cooker I think this is a machine I will get use out of. I passed on one of my two crock pots to make room for this in the pantry.
