How to Use Your Instant Pot as a Crockpot

Did you know you can use your Instant Pot as a crockpot, not just a pressure cooker? Instead of having two machines, you only need one! Basically all you have to do to use your Instant Pot as a crockpot is push the slow cooker or crockpot button and set the time according to the recipe. Additionally, I would suggest always using the Instant Pot on high instead of low. This is because the Instant Pot doesn’t always work exactly as good as a crockpot. Here is a video to help you out!

If you are using your Instant Pot instead of your crockpot, the recipe can be followed as above. However, instead of using the pressure cook buttons, you will use the slow cooker or crock pot button on your Instant Pot. I would also suggest cooking it on high instead of on low.
