Instant Pot Easy

I have had a lot of luck with the Instant Pot app. It enables me to save favorite recipes and guides me through the process. The issues that I have with it have to do with ingredient measurements. The units of measure are not clear or consistent. I can usually figure it out, but why would this not be standard and clear, like any other recipe. I have found that some recipe sources are also more reliable than others. Finally, the built in timer feature has not been helpful because it doesn’t take into account preheat time. An added bonus is being able to adjust recipes up and down with the number of servings. The recipe will tell you if your Instant Pot has reached it’s capacity and won’t allow you to go beyond the number of servings it can handle. There are a few flaws, but overall, I like the app.

Recent changes harmed accessibility for the blind

I bought this particular instant pot because it was Wi-Fi enabled, and had an app that I could use to control the device. I am blind and use voiceover on my iPhone to control the pot. I am unable to use the touchscreen at all. The app worked perfectly with voiceover before the most recent update, which I think happened about a week ago. Now, I am unable to alter the temperature or the length of time the food is cooking after I have set the instant pot. For example, I might start the sauté function at 30 minutes on low, but then need to increase to a high temperature and add a little time. As things stand, I would have to end the current program, and start all over again, in order to alter the temperature or time. It is particularly important to be able to alter the temperature while sautéing. I spent an off a lot of money for a device that would make cooking easy for me. Very disappointing.

Great for Getting started, but nutrition content lacking

The app and a few web searches helped to become acquainted with the Instant Pot method of cooking (ie how to boil water, make hard boiled eggs.. ). once I was ready to start recipes, I noticed a problem:

- Only lists calories
- Lists calories per “serving,” but NO serving size is given, neither per person nor per total amount made. Also, changing the number of people does nothing except change quantities need in the recipe (which is really neat), but good luck measuring out however much a “serving” is..
- Calories cannot be selected and copied into other apps for health data collection, (even if they did make sense.)

Once they fix these nutrition content issues and delivery, I will give five stars. The recipe format is great and guides well with timers and such, so that’s pretty cool.

Now onto making soup.

The content of recipes was questionable. Using the example of “Broccoli Cheddar Soup” by Chop Secrets, that recipe says to sauté a half a stick of butter for 30mins! I was afraid to do this because 1) I wasn’t trying to make clarified butter and 2) it just seemed weird.
Later, after reading comments about the soup being “too salty,” noticed that the recipe did not specify to use salted or in-salted butter, and just started wondering.

Soup tasted good though, gonna have to try other recipes.. please devs please fix the nutrition info content thx.
