Thanks, Michelle.  It does look interesting.  I'll wait for some reviews and Amazon availability, but it would be nice to get rid of my bulky air fryer if this smaller footprint accessory really works!

    The crisper lid is sure intriguing, although I'm not sure I can justify it since I have a large air fryer I use a lot. If I'm doing chicken tenders, legs, or wings I usually do enough to have some to put in the freezer and not sure this would allow large enough portions for that. I'm with Crebel on waiting a while to see more reviews before making a decision.

    Recently I have run across multiple recipes that talk about a specific amount of time for a "natural release".  For example, 5 minutes at high pressure and 5 minutes natural release.  What does that mean??

    When the beep signals the end of cooking, leave it alone for 5 minutes, then do a quick release for any remaining pressure?  Do bursts of quick release over 5 minutes until you can open the lid?

    This is probably more confusing to me than it needs to be.  :-\

    Natural release just means leave it alone to release the pressure slowly for however long the recipe says, after that you can turn the knob to venting and "quick release" the rest of the pressure

    Thanks, Michelle.  That's what I thought it was most likely to be, but I don't know why they can't say that using the terms we all know now.  "Cook on high 5 minutes and allow 5 minutes of natural release before a final quick release." Picky, aren't I? :D

    You're welcome.

    I did some beef riblets and corn on the cob yesterday both turned out awesome.

    Technically, a Quick Release (QR) means to release the pressure immediately after the cook time is over. If you need to have a 10 minute release, the directions will generally ask for a 10 minute Natural Release (10 min NR).

    Saw this in Amazon's July Kindle book sale:

    This Old Gal's Pressure Cooker Cookbook - $2.99 at posting


    I bought it, but I haven't had a chance to look at it yet.

    I bought it too. I love her recipes.

    I also bought Instant Pot Fast and Easy by Urvashi Pitre (Two Sleevers) at Target over the weekend. It's a really nice cookbook.

    And another keeper from Amy + Jacky HK Onion Chicken https://www.pressurecookrecipes.com/instant-pot-hk-onion-chicken/

    I used boneless skinless chicken breasts. The whole family loved it.

    Thanks for posting, Andra. I went through the July kindle sale books this morning and totally missed this one. I recently bought an Instant Pot and am still getting a feel for it. I've been poking around on This Old Gal's blog and I'm really happy to get the cookbook. I've made her yogurt recipe twice and it is really good.

    I did hard-boiled eggs in my mini IP last night.  I don't know if it was the cooking method or the fact that they were one-week-old eggs, but they sure peeled easily.  And it was definitely faster than putting them in a pot on the stove, boiling them, and then leaving them for a few hours until I remember that they are still in the pot...
    I also bought this cookbook:


    It's not for the IP, but her website has a section for meals made in the smaller IP.

    I have been making hard boiled (and soft boiled) eggs in the IP  for many years since I got my first IP. This process never fails me. It doesn't matter how fresh or old your eggs are, they come out perfect with the occasional cracked egg showing up.

    I haven't been on this thread in a while. Here is a link to the Mealthy Crisplid. Someone had posted about it on a facebook IP page, so I searched. I am not planning on buying but may change my mind one day.

    I was still debating on the CrispLid but then Instant Vortex happened and now I am considering that... at some point. I don't currently have room for it but if and when I do the rotisserie option is very tempting.

    I have heard from a reliable source that the Mealthy CrispLid will be available on Amazon during Prime Days. I am waiting to see what kind of deal they offer.

    CrispLid is available on Amazon now. Same price as Mealthy website, but with free shipping so you're saving $10. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RZDFVQV/

    I did see the Instant Vortex at my Walmart on Saturday but didn't buy one, as tempted as I am, I don't have the counter space right now and I've been hearing about a lot of issues.

    So I may still consider the CrispLid for now. Takes up less space

    As for recipes..

    I tried The Bearded Hiker's Creamy Salsa Chicken and it was very good. Though next time I would wait til after it's done to add the crema. https://www.thebeardedhiker.com/creamy-salsa-chicken/

    and My Heart Beets' Indian Onion Masala. I made it to freeze for recipes that use it. https://myheartbeets.com/indian-onion-masala/

    and TwoSleevers' Keto Indian Keema. It was awesome. I did add one cup of the onion masala for a little added sauciness. https://twosleevers.com/instant-pot-keto-indian-kheema/

    I plan to make a corned beef very soon (which was the main reason I bought the IP to begin with and still haven't made it) and some pineapple chicken (amy + jacky) and sloppy joes (amy + jacky).

    Today I'm making Soy Sauce Chicken (also amy + jacky) with some stir fried noodles (not IP). And have yogurt going in my 3qt.

    and bought this cookbook for $.99



    Edit to add that the Soy Sauce Chicken was awesome. I used boneless skinless thighs instead of a whole chicken because I didn't have a whole chicken and figured there would be enough flavor to cover up the fact that I was using thighs instead of breasts lol. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly.. even the star anise which I hate but wanted to experience the flavor of the recipe as intended. Thankfully it blends in nicely. I could smell it but the flavor wasn't overpowering.

    I ordered the CrispLid this morning and expect to see it on Thursday. I just went back to the Amazon Prime link to send it to a friend. The CrispLid is already sold and Amazon does not know when or if it will be back in stock.

    Last night, I used my partner's instant pot for the first time, with his help. Pineapple Chicken - it was soooo good!
    • 4 chicken thighs (boneless/skinless)
    • half red onion
    • half yellow pepper
    • half can pineapple chunks
    • brown sugar
    • low-sodium soy sauce
    • rice vinegar
    • corn starch, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, ground ginger, black pepper, chicken boullion
    Served over Basmati rice from our rice cooker.

    I got the idea from this recipe for oven-baked Pineapple Chicken Thighs.

    It wasn't until after we'd finished the whole thing, and Partner admitted to being tempted to lick his plate, that I kicked myself for not taking a picture.

    Anyone purchased and used a crisp lid yet?  I'm more interested in KB user thoughts than Amazon reviews.

    I did. I've used it twice. Once on Totino's rolls. they were nice and crisp and held their heat for a while (I burned my chin biting into one and the filling squirted out) and on Red Robin steak fries. Also turned out great, and crispy. It was nice not heating up the whole kitchen but still having crispy fries.

    I finally got around to trying twosleevers butter chicken. It was good. But I prefer the flavor of my usual recipe (stove). It was a lot more work and a ton more ingredients but the layers of flavor was outstanding. If I ever try butter chicken in the IP again, I'll probably try to convert that recipe.

    I have used my CrispLid for chicken thighs and chicken wings. I cooked them in the IP, then added the CL on top. They were every bit as good (and easier) than transferring them to the oven for browning/crisping. Yesterday I used the CL to make fresh french fries. They were good, but not outstanding.
