    I’m an Instant Pot Lover and this is a GREAT Instant Pot Cookbook!! 175 Easy to make mouth-watering recipes!! This Instant Pot book is good for both beginners and advanced Instant Pot users! For the beginners, it gives directions on how to use the Instant Pot and will ease any fear you may have. Once you get the hang of it, you won’t want to cook any other way! I use mine every day during the week!! I loved the fact that every recipe in the book has only 5-ingredients.

Once you get the hang of it, you won’t want to cook any other way! I use mine every day during the week!! I loved the fact that every recipe in the book has only 5-ingredients. This really comes in handy on those busy work days where you don’t really feel like cooking, but still need to provide a balanced meal for your family. The book includes straight-forward recipes for breakfast, soups, stews, and chili, chicken main dishes, vegetarian main dishes, desserts, among others. I was thrilled with the vegetarian section because most Instant Pot cookbooks I have come across don’t include much vegan. Even though I’m not vegan, I try to incorporate as many vegetables into my menu as I can. This makes it easy to stay healthy! You will, most likely, have everything you need to make the recipes on hand. The directions are easy to follow and there are pictures for some of the recipes, but I wish there would have been more, just a personal preference. I tried a few recipes so that I could honestly review the book which included, Creamy Pesto Chicken, Italian Sloppy Joe’s, Black Bean Slider Patties and Tex-Mex Quinoa. They were super simple and fast to make. All the ones I tried tasted good and I saw many others I am interested in making! T his cookbook will be a regular go-to for me and would be for any Instant Pot Lover!! After reading about the author, Michelle Fagone, I found that she has a whole line of cookbooks and a website, if you want to check them out!! I know I will be! http://www.cavegirlcuisine.com/ Thank you NetGalley, Adams Media, and Michelle Fagone for providing me an Advanced Reader Copy of I Love My Instant Pot 5-Ingredient Recipe Book in exchanged for my unbiased review.

I really needed this concise, easy to understand Instand Pot cookbook: apart from a few chicken stews and roast beef dishes, my instant pot was not getting much use.. The introduction contains simple to follow instructions on how to use your Instant Pot safely. Releasing the pressure completely is key. (One tip I learned: the trick to cooking desserts in the instant pot is to thoroughly clean and air out the sealer - or purchase a separate one and switch them out for the required purpose. That way, your desserts don't taste like the roast you just cooked the night before!) In the I Love My Instant Pot" 5-ingredient Recipe book, Michelle Fagone provides you with a huge range of dishes to choose from. Here is a quick sampling from each section: rotisserie chicken, Sloppy Joes, BBQ pork ribs, ground beef bulgogi halibut in lemon and caper sauce, milk boiled corn on the cob, and melt in your mouth meatballs. The mashed sweet potatoes (as well as the recipe with carrots) looks and sounds tasty.. The potato bacon soup is something I will definitely try, because I love soup on a cold winter's night. The picture of the take out style beef and broccoli looked mouthwatering. There is a very easy rice pudding recipe that I might try, along with the pumpkin muffins. All of the recipes look easy to make and will take you no time at all once you've assembled the ingredients and followed the simple instructions. I prefer lots of pictures in a cookbook, but there were still plenty of them here to satisfy my hungry eye! I suspect i will be getting more use out of my Instant Pot!!! Highly recommended: a 4 out of 5 star rating.

    First off, I appreciate that this cookbook contains nutritional information for every recipe. It also has a nice variety of recipes that are likely to please a lot of types of cooks. There are some that just purchased ingredients like mixes and others that are truly simple yet from-scratch. There are also a fair number that will work for folks who are vegetarian, keto, gluten free, etc. Photos are provided for some recipes but not a lot (maybe 1/4 or fewer?).

From breakfast ideas to apps and sides, entrees to desserts, every meal and course are included. Added perks throughout the book are fun tips like recipe modification, optional add-ins, and even quick lessons on things like salted vs unsalted butter. Some recipes have images included, and all recipes include number of servings and nutritional information. Reading through the book, I found myself thinking "I could make this" and "My family would eat that" quite often, a sure sign that this recipe book is easy enough for the Instant Pot novice but diverse enough to please a variety of palates. I will be returning to several bookmarked recipes very soon. Thank you to NetGalley, author Michelle Fagone from CavegirlCuisine.com, and publisher Simon & Schuster for an advanced digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This is a fantastic Instant Pot cookbook. It has useful information on the functionality of the unit and explains each function in detail. This is helpful because I believe the Instant Pot can initially be a little intimidating. Many people remember the old version of pressure cooking and can be a little nervous when tackling this for the first time. The details contained in this book remove a great deal of the mystery surrounding Instant Pot cooking and make it more appealing. In addition to the This is a fantastic Instant Pot cookbook.

    I am a beginner when it comes to cooking in an Instant Pot and was intrigued by the description that the book included quick and easy recipes using 5 ingredients. Some are quick and easy but others are more complicated and take more time to prepare than the times indicated in the recipes. Many of the recipes require extra accessories that I don't have, such as a special steamer basket for the Instant Pot, spring form pans, and an immersion blender.

Some are quick and easy but others are more complicated and take more time to prepare than the times indicated in the recipes. Many of the recipes require extra accessories that I don't have, such as a special steamer basket for the Instant Pot, spring form pans, and an immersion blender. Also, the recipes use 5 ingredients, in addition to what the author refers to as "Pantry Staples" which includes various spices such as salt and peeper, sugar, flour, broth, and others so some recipes use a lot more than five total ingredients. I was disappointed in these aspects of the cookbook. The best thing about the book is that it includes a well-rounded selection of recipes. I like the beginning which includes an introduction to the various buttons and functions of the Instant Pot. Then the recipes are divided into sections such as "Breakfast", "Appetizers", "Side Dishes", a few different chapters with Main Dishes, and finally "Desserts". There is also a helpful index at the back of the book. There are photos of some, but not all of the dishes. The dishes I've tried so far, like the risotto and the mashed sweet potatoes turned out good. Others that sound really good that I want to try are Twice Baked Potatoes, in less than 20 minutes, Cheesy Chicken Chile Verde, and Beef and Broccoli. As mentioned about, there are others that sound really good but I don't have the correct accessories. Thank you to NetGalley and Adams Media for this ebook. An advance copy was provided to me at no cost, but my review is voluntary and unbiased.

    I received this ebook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I really liked this cookbook and found lots of great recipes that I am definitely going to try. I really love how this is simple and doesn't throw in too much extra stuff on every page that's not needed. However, I do wish that each recipe had a picture. There's enough space at the bottom of some recipes to add a picture. I received this ebook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This cookbook has the usual " what this button does " chapter, and the review of functions ( sautés, yogurt, pressure and so on ), also a list of some accessories you might want to have. What this book has is recipes you ACTUALLY make in the Instant Pot.

    I am so thrilled Adams Media sent me this recipe book for review! I have had an Instant Pot for over a year, but still use it rarely because I am overwhelmed by all the available recipes that often feel complicated. I love how this book breaks down EASY, simple recipes, and have been using it to fill out our family's weekly meal plan. I look forward to trying even more recipes in the book, and think it makes an awesome gift for anyone with an Instant Pot! I am so thrilled Adams Media sent me this recipe book for review!

From breakfast to dinner and desserts and snacks in between, you will save more time (and money) than ever while enjoying tasty food all day long. I personally own every single InstantPot book in this series (Ditto the "I Love My Air Fryer") and I use them constantly as the InstantPot does not heat up the kitchen which is wonderful in the summer AND it makes the best chicken stock/bone broth ever. But it is not just soup that you will make from this book - the recipes are wide and varied and utterly yummy. There are lots of helpful hints and instructions ar the beginning of the book for people who have never used one before and the recipes are well written and understandable by cooks of all levels and the photos make the food very appealing to myself and other lovers of food out there. What I especially love about the book is that it uses mostly whole ingredients instead of pre-prepared and packaged foods. I do draw the line at making my own cheese beyond a quickly-made mozzarella, and canning tomatoes but the more "ingredients" you use the better. My one nephew says that I never have any food in my house, only ingredients --- that is why I cook so much. I also refuse to eat or cook with Frankenfoods such as "chick'n" and its 88 ingredients vs. 🐔chicken🐔 having one!) This book comes out right before Valentine's day so I would gift it and an InstantPot to someone you know...I know, it sounds very 1950s housewife to give someone an InstantPot but you are actually giving them the time to do other things and the gift of great food. What an excellent addition to a series of books that I never want to see the end of! As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I simply adore emojis (outside of their incessant use by "🙏-ed Social Influencer Millennials/#BachelorNation survivors/Tik-Tok and YouTube Millionaires/snowflakes / literally-like-overusers etc. " on Instagram and Twitter... Get a real job, people!) so let's give it 🧁🧁🧁🧁🧁

The "I Love My Instant Pot®" 5-Ingredient Recipe Book is a new addition to the popular Instant Pot series - this one by Michelle Fagone. Due out 9th Feb 2021 from Simon & Schuster on their Adams Media imprint, it's 240 pages and will be available in paperback and ebook formats. Electric pressure cookers have changed the face of home cooking, and they're more popular than ever, with more programmable options and different volume capacities and cooking programs. I admit that I love the convenience factor for myself and that you can add ingredients and come back to well cooked, tasty food that isn't overcooked or mushy. Especially with vegetables, overcooking destroys a lot of the nutritive value, so cooking more quickly is a definite benefit. This cookbook has one huge benefit for me, it's convenient. None of the recipes require more than 5 main ingredients (not counting spices and seasonings). At the end of a busy day of work, it's so great to be able to (mostly) pop ingredients into the cooker, program it, and come back to dinner. The book's logical and appealing layout mean that recipes are easy to find by category. The introductory chapter ~17% of the content) covers some background, how to cook with an electric pressure cooker (it's much MUCH easier and safer than people think), an FAQ on pressure cooking, a little bit about protein and ingredients, and other general info. The main recipes are grouped by category: breakfast, soups stews & chili, beans rice & grains, appetizers, side dishes, chicken mains, beef & pork mains, seafood & fish mains, vegetarian mains, and desserts. US/metric conversion chart and a cross referenced index are included at the back of the book. Each recipe includes serving yields, special notes, and prep times. Recipe ingredients are listed bullet point style along with optional ingredients. All measurements are given in American standard measures only. The directions are given step by step, numbered sequentially. The nutritional information is given in a footer under the recipes and includes calories, fat, protein, sodium, carbs, net carbs, sugar, and fiber. The recipes' ingredients are easily sourced and the resultant dishes are family friendly and appealing to kids and adults. Roughly 20-25% of the recipes include photos. Everything is well done and I heartily recommend the book overall. There are a number of these recipes which have made it into my personal potluck recipe book of dishes to take to group dinners and family gatherings. Good recipes, full of hearty and satisfying food. Four and a half stars. I would recommend it for busy cooks who are looking to increase their use of the instant pot in their own daily cooking. The book does rely heavily on pre-made seasoning mixes and ready-made ingredients (premade salsa in a jar for example). All of the recipes can be converted (with some effort) to avoid premade and convenience mixes/seasonings. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

That said, there are several 'cheats' to the title of "5-Ingredient" and I had a hard time finding a recipe that did actually only have 5 ingredients. What the author has done is clever - she doesn't count spices or items such as milk or butter as an ingredient, only items you won't find stocked in your pantry already. And wherever possible, she will list combined/prepackaged items (e.g., garlic salt powder instead of fresh garlic and salt, jar salsa, marinara sauce jar, etc.). It did make the book feel like it had a misleading title. The book is broken down as follows: Instapot Cooking tips, Breakfast, Soups/Stews/Chili, Beans/Rice/Grains, Appetizers, Side Dishes, Chicken Main Dishes, Beef and Pork, Seafood and Fish, Vegetarian, Desserts, US/Metric conversion chart, Index. There are only a few photographs but each recipe is cleanly laid out. The title is large and in blue with a short 1-2 sentences about the item. Hands on and cook time are listed. Pantry staple items you'll need are also listed. The ingredients are in a yellow callout box that is easy to read. Directions are numbered in short paragraphs. At the bottom of the page is the per serving info: calories, fat, protein, sodium, fiber, carbs, net carbs, sugar. Recipes are one per page. You'll find the usual instapot items recipes along with some interesting items: loaded broccoli, BBQ cocktail wieners, Italian sloppy joes, classic meatloaf, shrimp fajitas, creamed crab sauce, blood orange and goat cheese wheat berry salad, hot cocoa brownies, etc. As with most cookbooks specific to an instapot or air fryer, you'll need to invest in specialty bowls and dishes in order to make many of the recipes. I was a bit skeptical of this book due to the cheats listed earlier but found that once I made several of the recipes, they were both very easy but also tasted just fine. The family approved and I didn't spend a lot of time. Of note, however, that those living outside of the US or in small rural areas may have a harder time finding some of the pre-made items. So no, there are no 5 ingredient recipes in the book that I could find. Most have 10-15 ingredients, even with shortcuts such as instant hot cocoa mix packets for the hot cocoa brownies. But the ingredients are simple and the results were more than acceptable to the family. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.

I like that the ingredients are simple, and do not rely on garlic and onions to make the recipe work. Many people who are allergic to these FODMAPS will appreciate that they are left out in many dishes. I found the recipes easy to follow for all levels of cooks. The tips and tricks in the beginning of the book, as well as in the recipes themselves where great, and will make anyone comfortable with using their IP. I do feel that some ingredients, like lamb, are very specific to a taste, availability and budget and substitutions could be offered. I did not like that additional components were necessary to use in conjunction with the IP, such as the silicon baking cups and glass bowls, for some dishes. However, I can see the usefulness of them in the recipes. There are lots of dishes for each section for all tastes. I especially like the steamed artichokes, the acorn squash, and the mustard greens recipes, which are not normally featured and often harder to cook traditionally. I decided to make the Lemon Butter Chicken with Fingerling Potatoes on page 128. The recipe read easily enough, however, the prep and cook times were off. It says hands on, 5 minutes. By the time I prepped the chicken, chopped the onion and halved 2 pounds of potatoes, it was at least 10 to 15 minutes. The cook time was off as well, with the recipe stating 10 minutes. I am not sure if the author means just the time it cooks in the IP but, even in the instructions it states 10 minutes to cook and 10 minutes natural release. Then, add in the time to get the pressure up, and I was at 30 minutes, leaving me around 45-50 minutes from start to finish. The recipe does not state high or low pressure, which would be nice to include as well. In the end, the dish did not knock my socks off (not really tasting the butter because it melted in the stock), but it was good and I feel it could have cooked it in the oven in the same amount of time. In conclusion, if you like to cook in your Instant Pot for most dishes, or want to learn how to use your Instant Pot for more dishes, this is a great starter book for you. Thank you for the opportunity to review this cookbook.

If you are new to Instant Pot cooking, you’ll feel so much more confident after you read this section. She also lists the accessories you’ll need and the kitchen staples you should have on hand. Now come the recipes! Organized by meal type for easy reference, the cookbook begins with Breakfasts.Who knew you can hard boil eggs in six minutes? I do now! And a crustless quiche in under 20 minutes? My favorites in the Soups, Stews and Chili section are the chicken, and vegetable broths. In 40 minutes (only 10 for preparation), you’ll have broth ready to be frozen for future use. The real power of the Instant Pot is shown in the section on Beans, Rice and Grains. Spiced Lentils in less than 15 minutes? What a healthy addition to any meal! And the best news - you no longer have to soak dried beans overnight! Quick to prepare main dishes, desserts and appetizers and more complete this must have cookbook. 5 stars! Thank you to NetGalley, Adams Media and Michelle Fagone for this ARC.

I was happy to see the recipe included in this book that is similar to the one I use. Recently I purchased some glass custard glasses and a stackable rack for my pot. Now I cannot wait to use them to make Tomato Mozzarella Basil Egg Bites and Bacon Cheddar Scrambled Egg Muffins. The Bacon Onion Cheddar Frittata sounds amazing too. There are too many recipes that I want to make from this book. The recipes in the book are written in an easy-to-follow style. There is nutritional information listed for all recipes. The ingredients are readily available in most pantries and grocery stores. If you have an Instant Pot, you definitely need this book.

    I Love My Instant Pot 5-Ingredient Recipe Book by Michelle Fagone is good recipe book with a variety of recipes that are easy to follow and accessible ingredients. I tried 4 recipes. The easiest and simple recipe was the Amish Inspired Egg Noodles. Super easy and tasty. Do I really need an instant pot for this? No but still tasty. Sausage and Sweet Potato Hash was easy, tasty and customizable. Bacon Cheddar Scrambled Egg Muffins were good and she even mentioned freezable.

This makes the cook book go up in my estimation. Chocolate Cherry Soda Pop cupcakes were easy and a hit or miss on actually turning out. Cherry Pepsi worked, Dr. Pepper did not. Mine were undercooked but who doesn’t love a gooey cupcake. For criticism just be aware 5 ingredients is fudging the line a little. Staple items are not part of the 5-Ingredients. Overall this was a great cookbook if you have no idea what to do with your pressure cooker. She gives tips and talks about alterations. 5 Stars because easy customizable recipes with a variety of things to try. I did four and I will try more. Thank you to NetGalley, Adams Media and Michele Fagone for an ARC. This was an honest review.

    I’m not going to lie, my success and satisfaction with my Instant Pot has been pretty mixed so far. At first, I was scared of it and made it much more complicated than it really was. Then, once I had a produced a few good meals (soups, ribs, a random stir fry) I was on board. That’s not to say that I don’t still find myself with a lackluster end result here and there (😬). I still would never make hard boiled eggs any other way. This cookbook appealed to me because it’s the real deal.

I still would never make hard boiled eggs any other way. This cookbook appealed to me because it’s the real deal. It has a foolproof complete set of instructions for each product. It has solid recipes that range from a bit more elegant to the staple meals most families would see on their tables. But the best thing is that the ingredients are pretty much pantry staples and there 5 of them. This book also will walk you through the basics of how to use the Instant Pot making it a great beginner cookbook. It also suggests pantry staples and accessories for cooking convenience. I have made 4 recipes so far and each one has been well received! I definitely recommend this cookbook. I just wish it had more pictures (personal preference for my cookbooks). Thanks to NetGalley, the author and Adams Media for a copy in exchange for a review.

    Rating 4 I bought my Instant Pot back in December and I have been trying out new recipes ever since. I chose this book because of the 5 ingredient promise as stated in the title. It is true majority of the recipes only use five ingredients however, some items are not considered an ingredient such as spices or broths. So those items will need to be added on top of the five limit which I was fine with. For still being a beginner I found almost all of these recipes to be doable.

I have already made ten recipes and all of them came out great and my favorites were the chocolate chip cheesecake and the jalapeno popper potato salad. The directions are easy to follow and very straight forward. The book contains a wide range of recipes and with such a variety it won't leave you disappointed. I recommend for beginners or if you just want some hassle free meals. **Received an advanced copy through NetGalley in return for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. **

    I have been using the recipes in this book for a while now. I have settled on a few recipes especially the breakfast one - my favourite is the egg bites and muffins which I can freeze. I have tried recipes that I would never have thought of On the positives - the recipes are easy to use and limited ingredients (hence the name) The negatives - would love to see more pictures - pictures inspire me and give me the confidence to try it out. Good book and easy to follow, just more pictures please I was I have been using the recipes in this book for a while now.

    If you are like me and have been scared to use your instant pot, this is the cookbook for you. I have had two (yes you read that right two) Instant pots for a few years and I used one once. The great thing about this cookbook is the recipes are not complicated. There aren’t a lot of steps or ingredients. It takes the intimidation out of a pressure cooker. The only is I wish there were more and better pictures. Still this is a great cookbook.

    A nice cookery book if you have an instant pot or not. Some very American recipes but also some home comfort classics, my only complaint is the lack of pictures I can’t be the only one who likes to see what I’m making and what it should look like. Needs some tweaking before I would think of buying it but if you can overlook the lack of diversity with the food and the lack of photos it would be a good addition. Thanks to Adams Media and NetGalley for the advanced copy.
