<sigh>

I'm probably the only one that thought someone was discussing freeze-dried cannabis.

My next thought was. . .well, Mountain House IS in Oregon.

Huge fan of the instant pot. We got one to replace the broken insert on our ceramic slow cooker and have never looked back. We have already used it for slow cooking, steaming and making rice

I have an off brand one & really like it for making eggs, quick soups & stews, cooking beans when I’ve forgotten to soak them etc.

I can see it being a good prepping tool for a situation where power is available.  But I also seenias important because it gives folks experience & a recipe base for pressure cooking in general.  Now if you pick up a small stovetop pressure cooker you have something that in s grid down situation can cook quickly with less fuel (because it cooks faster) on a propane camp stove, rocket stove or probably even a well built campfire (although there would be practice for heat regulation.
