  1. I have the Mealthy CrispLid for my Instant Pot 6 Duo. It’s compatible with the Instant Pot brand. I’ve used it twice and the reason why not more is that I’m intimidated by it (took me one year to unbox my IP.) The lid makes plenty of noise and it’s hot, too hot. I’ve never used it for longer than 5 minutes because I think I’ll burn the house down. The times I’ve used it, the food is definitely seared and crunchy. I would love cooking baked potatoes using the CrispLid, but why am I petrified? Do you have any tips or tutorials to help myself and others? Appreciate all your delicious recipes and never had a failure. Thank you.

    1. It can be quite scary to try new cooking techniques. My only advice is the more you do something, the easier and less scary it will be. It is meant to be very hot, so there is nothing to worry about, you just need to be mindful while cooking to be safe. Hope this helps a little bit. Kudos to you for facing your fears!

  2. I just got an Insta pot I’m trying to learn how to cook in it it did not come with instructions are cookbook
