Happy Holidays! I just posted this on Kitchen equipment because I hadn't seen this forum . . .
My husband got me an Instant Pot for Christmas. It's the Lux model, which doesn't have the low pressure setting. Is the low pressure setting important? I think I read somewhere that shrimp became rubbery at the high pressure setting.
Any recommendations on model, etc? I haven't opened it yet, so I can switch it if the Duo or Ultra is a better model (although I doubt I'll ever make yogurt).
I do use the low pressure setting for meats dishes like pot roast, pulled pork, but lots of people do everything on high pressure. I find that meats shrink less on low pressure. I used low pressure all the time with my stovetop pressure cooker. I haven't cooked shrimp in my instant pot so I can't offer any advice there.
I have the original Duo model. I almost always use it in manual mode rather than using the preset buttons. I do make yogurt and use the yogurt button, but I have never looked to see if yogurt cooks at high or low pressure.
This guy has done a lot of testing of the various models and you might find some helpful model comparison info in his pressure cooker section to help you decide which model is right for you. www.dadcooksdinner.com/
