One of the most frequent questions I receive is which Instant Pot Should I Buy? I have a 6 and an 8 quart Instant Pot and use both on a regular (at least once a week) basis. My go-to recipe for cooking frozen chicken in the Instant Pot is the only way to cook chicken quickly for use in dozens of recipes!
I most frequently use my 6 quart pot, but when I have larger jobs, such as making double batches of Chile Verde for a crowd, I use my 8 quart pot. If you have the room and money to buy both, and you cook a lot, I highly recommend 2 Instant Pots. The reasoning? I often times want to cook two dishes at the same time, such as Instant Pot Roast and Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes. I also use both at the same time when I’m cooking Chile Verde and ABK’s No-Soak Instant Pot Black Beans!
