Instant Pot IP-Smart Bluetooth-Enabled Multifunctional Pressure Cooker, Stainless Steel

The reason for purchasing it: I have many family members I celebrate Christmas with and I often attend 2 or more Christmas dinners over the week of Christmas. This year, my cousin purchased the Power Pressure Cooker XL - the one seen on TV - and made delicious lasagna in 20 minutes, after a bit of a long warm up time. I decided I wanted my first pressure cooker, but I don't like Teflon, because of chemicals and because my boyfriend likes to use metal utensils to stir. I took a few days and performed a good amount of research and found the Instant Pot IP-Smart and it has a stainless steel pot. I figured, from the price reduced by my $50 gift card I received for Christmas, I was going big or not getting one at all. First, I love the bluetooth connection. I love that I can start, stop, and change settings from my phone, instead of standing in the kitchen. I have the iPhone 6+ and it paired easily while I was nearby. Bluetooth is not a long-range signal. Second, I love that I can create the details in the app for recipes I find online. I can set title, pressure, and length of time to cook. Cooking has never been easier!
The experience: My first meal was chicken and gravy with vegetables. It turned out fantastic - 15 minutes on high pressure. Done. The pot didn't burn the food at the bottom, like I've heard of other electric pressure cookers doing. I removed the veggies and the chicken and made gravy in the same pot for the chicken. It was a hit! The heat up time to get to pressure isn't very long, either. I know from family members' experience with other pressure cookers, theirs take 20-30 minutes to reach pressure before cooking. The Instant Pot takes 7-10 minutes. That's really good! Also, the machine is so quiet! I had to get really close to hear it working. It's perfect for family get togethers and meals at home.
Recommendation: Whether you spend $100 on the IP 60 or $250 on the IP 60-smart, you can't go wrong with the Instant Pot brand. Hippeessurecooking.com has YouTube videos reviewing this awesome product and the features are fantastic. Some have reviewed trouble with pairing or using the app, these instances can be influenced by location, home building materials, and device. I had no trouble pairing or using the device and the booklets and materials it comes with are enough to get someone who has never used one (like me) started. Personally, I love this pressure cooker and will recommend it 1000x to everyone I know. I cannot believe I ever lived and cooked without this!!
