  1. Pictures that follow each step would be EXTREMELY beneficial for those of us insta pot virgins that are terrified....

    1. It's not crispy due to the nature of the Instant Pot, you can choose to finish it with air frying if you desire a crisp crust.

  2. when I make Pork schnitzel I prepare a lot ( 20 at a time ) a tub of flower with salt and pepper dip in first, then in a tub of egg wash (eggs with a bit of milk blended ) last in a tub of bread crumbs. they can be frozen as is or I even precook them and then frozen. The conventional method is faster in my case. Prepping each schnitzel is the same yet I use 2 electric skillets to fry 4 at a time, my schnitzel are so large they would not fit in the instant pot. I fry them in sunflower oil at medium heat 3 minutes a side till golden brown. I think my method is faster
