One thing to remember when you’re cooking with your Instant Pot is that it does actually take more time than the amount of time you set the clock for. The pressure has to build up before the cooking time begins. Plus some recipes call for a natural release which can take up to 20 minutes. So just make sure you remember than when you’re planning to cook something in your Instant Pot or pressure cooker.
