    Low pressure for 10 minutes seems to be the way to go, then let it depressure itself.

    How'd you make the meatloaf?

    Basic a standing cylinder with a loose foil wrap that leaves enough space on the sides for steam to get up around it with half the ketchup based red sauce on it. After coming out of the pot, I sliced it half onto a baking sheet making two haly cylinders, brushed it with the rest of the red sauce and broiled it a few minutes to crunch it up a bit. :) That doubled the amount of "burnt ends", which we all love.

    Don't use mine as much as I would like. Lost the dang silicone ring and haven't got around to replacing it. My go to recipes were ribs, and stew. Stew is just too easy. I'm don't like 100 step recipes so I tend to stick to the easy stuff. I did however make a good lamb shank in red wine sauce with the Instant Pot.

    Here, get two, they're small :) Color coded so you can reserve one for stinky smelly stuff with garlic (talk about flavor infusion, the mashed potates I made with fresh garlic were amazing. And keep one for stuff like boiling eggs and oats and such. Sine it doesnt flavor the food, I haven't bothered but I get it.

    So, first time trying poached eggs, was super happy.

    sprayed ramekins with non-stick spray, steam setting for three minutes, came out easy with a thin scraper.

    I poach eggs in the microwave because I'm lazy.

    That's a good idea about the different rings

    Never could be bothered to find the right settings in the nuker. I hate "for about a minute", knowing that I'm gonna have to fiddle with that time. And fishing the egg out of the water? Not this guy :)
