    NIPD - New Instant Pot Day - 10 qt Duo Nova

    I got it! Some pics comparing it side by side with my 6qt Duo are below.

    Some quick first impression likes and dislikes:

    Likes (no particular order):
    1.The float valve that pops up when it attains pressure and drops down when it has sufficiently released is now flush with the lid when down and rises up proud of the lid when up. It is also now red colored so it's easy to see when it is up.
    2. The pressure valve is now automatically in the "sealed" position when you lock the lid so you can't forget to set it (Not that I would ever do that, of course 🙄)
    3.There is now a separate button you press to release the pressure which keeps your hand away from the escaping steam.
    4. It comes with a second ring gasket in a different color from the pre-installed one.
    5. It's BIG!
    6. I like the new backlit LCD screen.
    7. It can fit a regular full sized spring form pan.

    Dislikes:
    1. They is no way to attach the lid to the pot when you take it off. You need seperate counter space for the hot lid.
    2. It doesn't have it's own manual, at least not yet. The Duo Nova manual only covers the 3, 6 & 8qt models.
    3. It seems to require minimum 3 cups of liquid for pressure cooking. I'm wondering how I will be able to make small quantities of things like rice. I usually only make 1 cup dry with 1.25 chips water for three 2 of us. If I have to make 3+ cups of dry rice at a time that will be a problem. Maybe there it's a pot-in-pot solution.
    4. It's taller than my 6qt so it doesn't fit on top of my fridge with the lid on. (Did I mention it's BIG?)

    BTW, a quick trip on the Google machine revealed that one can, indeed, cook a smaller amount of rice using pot-in-pot. So scratch one dislike from the above list.

      Use some vinegar on a paper towel to wipe away the white stuff on the bottom of your 6 qt pot.

        She's a beauty! I have had the 8 QT Duo for almost 4 years now and love it, it is still going strong so I can't justify upgrading

          I have the 8 qt and quite honestly that is almost too big. I am fixing to make bone broth for the first time this week end.

            10 quarts is a monster! Think of all the bigger things you can cook though. I'm still using my original 6qt Duo, and I love it. Between the IP, sous vide, and my grill, the stove and oven don't get used nearly as much as they used to.

              Wow! That is one BIG DOG. We have the 6 qt Duo and I'm still in the learning mode. It would be great to have some recipes from Pit Members.

                I highly recommend Melissa Clark's book "Dinner in an Instant." Tons of good info and recipes there. Also, Serious Eats has some very good recipes which they have tailored/reworked for Instant Pot/pressure cookers. I am particularly fond of Kenji's Pressure Cooker American Beef Stew and the pressure cooker beef and chicken stock recipes.

            The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            Placeholder

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

            Placeholder

            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            Placeholder

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

            Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
