I was probably the first in my family to get an Instant Pot. The first one I got was the Instant Pot Bluetooth version. You could create and run scripts which was interesting, but it never really worked well.
Unfortunately my Instant Pot Bluetooth burned out , but the company replaced it with an Instant Pot ultra.
For a couple years I’ve extolled the virtues to my mom, but she never warmed up to it.
However when my cousin moved in with my parents for a little bit, she brought her instant pot with her and it completely revolutions how my mom cooked.
Things like pho and bun bo hue would now primarily be started in the instant pot.
The most interesting thing is my cousin told me there was this Vietnamese Instant Pot group which had about 94,000 members. Being a little bit of a doubter that the group could be that useful I applied to join.
After answering a couple of questions, I was approved a couple days later. To my surprise there is a ton of useful information on the page .
One of the things about the Instant Pot and Vietnamese food is to be careful about when the out spices in as they get really bitter if you cook it too long.
I’m curious what else might exist out there in Facebook in terms of cooking groups…
