I am pretty new to the instapot/ multicooker. I have been using it with another stainless steel pan inside that I eat from. For example, oatmeal and nut milk cooks in a stainless steel bowl inside the multicooker while I wake up, then is ready when I am ready to eat, like 1 hour later. Then I eat it out of the dish I cooked in, and it is very warm and cozy, and less dishes to wash.
This weekend my plans are to try making seitan in it. I have made seitan before which turned out good, but the cooking time and heating up the kitchen was a drag. So this is my experiment today. I will report back.
