    “I’m going to season the water with salt.” must be the most whitebread-culture cooking step I’ve ever heard

          I'd love to see more instant pot/ninja foodi recipes ... and especially if Carla can give us some WFPBNO versions of the dishes. ;)

            Pressure cooker Risotto is also awesome, and easy. Screw the stirring and ladling.

                  Good vid, but I'd use it for rice, because I prefer being involved with stirring polenta...

                      They are the same ingredient but cooked differently. So yes but no at the same time.

                                  I could totally see Andy lost in a k-hole, mindlessly stirring polenta for a helluva lot longer than 40 minutes.

                                          For me, the Instant Pot really shines at taking a tough cut of meat like beef shin in stew or braise and turning it fork tender and very tasty. It infuses the meat w/ flavor while it tenderizes.

                                                The recipe says to bring the mixture to a simmer but the video doesn’t mention anything about that. Do I just skip it?

                                                    Mmmm a bit too loose and watery for this Northern Italian’s taste, but I’m definitely going to give it a try and probably leave it on sauté for a while at the end hoping it thickens. I still dream of the polenta my granny sometimes made outside on an open fire at the mountain chalet, but I’m sure this one can be great as a quick dinner polenta!

The soup or stew buttons are presets that affect time and also pressure levels... With the "pressure" button, all of that is manual. you could argue that you don't need the presets, but they clearly do have their reason.

                                                                      • Jason

                                                                                            i.e, at 100kPa water boils at 100°C and at 200kPa water boils at 120°C.
                                                                                            So water doesn't boil in the pressure cooker until it reaches higher temperature causing decreased cooking time.
