  1. Here is what I don't understand about the saute feature on an Instant Pot: Do I leave the lid off? Do I need to stir it around as if I was saute-ing on the stove? Or do I just press the button and magic happens? If I still have to stir it around, what's the point of using the Instant Pot instead of the stove? Still trying to figure it out; the instruction manual did not help.

    1. Good question! Yes, you leave the lid off. And you are correct in that you need to stir it, and it's just the same as sauteing on the stovetop. There are a few reasons you may want to do this. If the stove is full with other pans when making a big meal, when you avoid turning on the oven in the summer months, or if you don't have a stove or it's broken. This is just another option of cooking vegetables.
