  1. Gotta comment again. I just used this method to cook my rice and it is the most perfect rice I have ever made. All the grains are separate and fluffy. Thank you so much!!

  2. Would rice in the bottom tin & fish in the top tin work on slow cook mode at 6-8 hours? I want to buy an instant pot but still want to do a lot of slow cooking so that I have a meal ready after work. I don’t always want everything ready instantly. I also love fish & rice but don’t see any devices that allow you to slow cook them divided & at the same time. A video on that would be awesome! I haven’t seen anybody do that yet. Am I the only one that wants to slow cook some fish & rice?… I can’t be the only one lol. I want to buy an instant pot so long as the slow cook mode is good. I also haven’t seen any slow cookers or crock pots that are divided, that aren’t meant as dip warmers which is annoying. I didn’t think it would be so hard to find the right device.

  3. I saw that you cooked the peas without the lid, but since I have stainless containers with lids that do not have a seal or a clasp, can I do the rice pot in pot anyway with those lids, or no lids or aluminum foil? Thank you.

  4. I tried cooking a ricotta custard in my IP in a covered flan pan with no silicone seal, but it only cooked around the edges. Are there any tips for what I did wrong? Cooked it 8 minutes on high and natural release.

  5. Thank you! This was great! This is the first time I saw how to use the steam function on an instant pot- all others always focused on pressure cooking. Very helpful! 🙂

  6. I recommend that you no longer encourage your viewers to purchase the Nesting stackable stainless steel containers .. I purchased them from your YouTube channel and have tried to use them in my Instant Pot and have found that you CANNNOT open them out of the pressure cooker. We have attempted to use a mallet and a wedge to pop the seal and to no avail . Still can not open . I’m Sorry to have to report this to you

  7. Would love to convert some recipes I usually bake in the oven to the pot in pot method. Already do cheesecake. Is there a general rule for amount of time based on volume. I will be using the 3qt. Should You always put the pip on the trivet? Thanks for your help. I will subscribe to your YouTube channel

  8. Thank you! This was really helpful! I just bought an Instant Pot and stainless steel inserts, but the instructions they came with were basically just "you can cook two things at once."

  9. I have a problem with rice dishes like arroz con pollo that uses long grain rice, with the rice settling to the bottom and giving me multiple burn notices. If i try pot in pot, the pressure still pushes the rice over the sides of the pot and it stickes to the sides and bottom, even in a ceramic pan. How can i prevent this please?

  10. Hi, some people mentioned that after two uses, the gaskets on the stainless steel pots became useless because they wouldn't create a seal anymore. Did you experience this problem with yours?

  11. I watched your entire video only to get this message on Amazon about the pots: "Currently unavailable.
    We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."

  12. I am glad to found this video using pot and pot cooking method. My intention is to cook inside my partition room since the pot to pot mention will not smelly and disturb other occupants. Thanks a lot & may god bless your goodness.

  13. The stainless steel container failed. I cooked kidney beans in the bottom of the liner with the trivet that you recommended on top and the stainless steel bowl with white rice on top of that in a 6qt iPot. The beans came out very nice, but we haven’t been able to open the bowl with the rice… for three (3) days. Looks like the seal melted and glued top and container together. We’ve tried everything. Then went to Amazon’s customer comments and found many, many people with the same problem. Too late for us to return the stainless steel containers and the container is ruined not only because it doesn’t open but because it is ruined with our efforts to open it. We’ll use the remaining stainless steel pots for pot in pot without the lid. Will see if there are better products out there.

  14. I wanted to thank you for this video. I bought an 8qt IP during Prime Day and picked up a second one brand new for $26 and got to wondering about doing small-batch cooking in them and your video came up on top.

  15. I saw this video 2 days ago and bought these containers, today i made meatloaf in the large one my husband and i spent a full hour trying to get the lid off i immediately took the silicone ring off, i think im only going to use the rings when storing food not when cooking it in the instant pot

  16. You have presented a very helpful and informative video. Thank you! You do a wonderful job explaining your "tips" and pro's and con's. Loved that you demonstrated the actual pot in pot cooking of the rice, peas, and eggs … very helpful. I have subscribed to your channel and look forward to watching more of your videos. P.S. Thank you for having a good speaking voice that is pleasant for listening. 🙂

  17. Eh, that silicone ring seems to be more of a liability and a hassle than it's worth. I'd rather use a stainless steel container with a form-fitting lid and a retaining clip with a convenient handle at the very top to lift everything out at once.

  18. have you cooked the rice without the lid on it? i make brown rice in pot in pot without a lid…i was just wondering if there's any diff in cook time or texture….thanks…the storage containers are good , can keep in frig and bring to go…i will get some..

  19. Nili. Im 2 weeks new. But did a pot n pot to warm. I use glass and trivit. Dont have stainless yet. But getting them through your link. You talked about heat transfer. Im wondering, what if a trivit isn't use, stainless to stainless, glass to stainless as long as one cup of water can still be added, it seem that there is enough room. And for something like meatloaf there would be a better heat transfer from metal to metal, metal to glass. Like no pot in pot but keeping the water out of the food. Is this a bad idea? Or maybe it can't be done or something else im over looking? Has it already been proven wrong? I can barely cook as it is and i have the tendency to f things up in cooking through my experimentations.. Yes its really bad..

  20. There are many complaints about the seal rings on the pots becoming defective after the first few uses & the clamps being cheap & ineffective. I don't see any way to replace the rings, either. Also, I wish you would do a magnet test video on all of your stainless steel accessories. Magnets do not adhere to food-grade stainless steel. I think we all assume Amazon has vetted the verity of claims made by their sellers, but it appears this is not the case.
