Instant Cooking Review
I got an Instant Pot® for my birthday last year and I hadn’t used it yet when I received Instant Cooking with Six Sisters’ Stuff to review. Until now, it has been the least-used appliance in my kitchen.
But no more. While I admit to reading cookbooks like most people read novels, I decided I could not properly review this book if I did not try some recipes. I made baked potatoes first because I heard the best way to test your Instant Pot® was to cook hard-boiled eggs or baked potatoes. And since I’m not so much a fan of hard-boiled eggs (unless they’re deviled) and I love baked potatoes, it was an easy choice.
They came out perfectly, as good as in the oven. They don’t have the crispy skin that air-fryer baked potatoes do, but for everyday dinner, they work.
Since I was now an Instant Pot® expert, I decided to tackle a main dish. Going with ingredients I had on hand, I decided to make Meatloaf and mashed potatoes. The recipe was easy to follow. The only change I made was to omit the brown sugar from the meatloaf “sauce.” Tomato soup and ketchup are high in sugar and unless I’m making dessert, I prefer not too much sweetness.
It all went in the cooker ok. I was concerned the sauce would drip onto my potatoes and I’d end up with tomato-flavored mashed potatoes. It did drip and made them a little pink, but they had no tomato flavor. The meatloaf tasted great, the mashed potatoes were fluffy, and the eaters at my house pronounced it a win.
I’ve already got a couple more recipes from Instant Cooking with Six Sisters’ Stuff on this week’s menu. This cookbook is easy enough for instant cooker novices to feel confident with, and interesting enough for more advanced cooks. It includes a variety of recipes from main dishes to sides to desserts.
Whether you’re a beginning cook or a kitchen wizard, Instant Cooking with Six Sisters’ Stuff will be a well-used addition to your culinary library. This is not my first Six Sisters review. You can find my other Six Sisters cookbook reviews here.

I have not cooked my potatoes whole! I always cube them. How long does it take to cook whole?
To cook both the meatloaf and the potatoes, I think it took about 25 minutes. Certainly not longer than if I’d cubed them and cooked them on the stove–and much easier.
