    Posting in this thread just so it shows up if anyone does spot a sale. I ALMOST bought one on Black Friday, but decided at the last minute it was too big and I have a closet full of other unused appliances. Have been having abstainer's remorse* ever since, but not quite enough to make me pay the regular price. If it goes on sale, though...

    *A friend of mine got one for her husband and he's been posting the things he's been cooking and they look so good, it's overwhelmed my certainty that even if I get it, I'll only use it once or twice then put it away in the cupboard.

    Target CS told me they wouldn't price match an Amazon sale item. I asked how to go about doing an in-store return as I'd inadvertently discarded the invoice in the box.  She put me on hold to talk to a supervisor, came back and offered me a $25 Target gift card.

    It was 10% off the $129 with a $15 Target gift card, + another $25 gift card. I think I did ok. :D

    I just saw this.  $79 is great.  I think Amazon just wants me to buy another one with all their sales.  But I will resist....  ;)

    It's shipped!  Still supposed to arrive Saturday.  *crosses fingers* as the weather here overnight Fri/Sat is not supposed to be good--icy roads.

    It would be nice if it was that cheap in Canada. On sale, but still $150.

    I write riveting young adult and suspense fiction about mental illness, addiction, and abuse.

    If you're looking for good recipes and do FaceBook, there are a number of groups. Two of the best I've found so far are, Instant Pot Cooks, which really accepts any brand, and Instant Pot Community. Both have great recipes and help if you need it.

    Had to check, but yep, I joined both during my research phase....

    There's also an Instant Pot Weight Loss Community that's good.

    I know, right?

    It's BIG.  I'm actually not sure I have any place to store it.  Have to think about this....  It's taller than my old rice cooker or crock pot.

    Doing the steam test now.

    So do you have a cord rack/attachment/dolollyjigger or is your cord detachable?

    Anyone have recommendations for a steamer insert?  Mine came with the rack thingy, but I'm not sure what is safe to set on top of it to steam veggies, etc.  I haven't researched it either, figured folks here can give me faster answers!

    I've seen a lot of those metal steamer baskets recommended.  I have a silicon steamer I use--will post a pic.  There's a link earlier in the thread that I posted that talks about accessories.
