It's the 5-qt that's on sale for $49 at Walmart. 3-quart for $49 at Amazon.

I'm terrible with sizes. I need to go look at pots I have to see what 5 quarts vs 6 quarts vs 8 quarts looks like. I have a crock pot that is often too big. But 5 quart is maybe too small for us, but good for ds.

DS loves it for cooking dried beans.  And they really are so much better than canned (which I use all the time -  'cuz I'm lazy).   I am going to try cooking beans in it.  I'm also going to try making my huge weekly pot of steel cut oats in it.

DH loves it for hardboiled eggs...you don't have to babysit them.  What about making your own veggie broth instead of buying already made and soups?

Have you googled instant pot vegetarian recipes yet?  I've never cooked dry beans before, but it must be quicker. 

I have to say that maybe it didn't take any less time to cook the potatoes because the pot has to come up to temperature, but I didn't have to babysit it in case of a boil-over so in that respect I was able to do other things out of the kitchen.

Okay yíall, since itís Black Friday: if your house cold weíre vegetarian, do you think youíd get much use out of yours? I think a year ago the consensus was no.

I donít see this as a good option for cooking hard boiled eggs, based on what Iíve read here.

Iím not sure what Iíd use it for besides yogurt. I joined a vegetarian up group on FB last year, but the recipes were mostlyfor Indian food, which DS doesnít like and I donít much either these days.

I cooked my potatoes in it, then put them through the ricer, back into the pot, mixed in the stuff and turned it on keep warm.  Worked out great.  Not my favorite recipe, but good enough.

Though I truly wonder how many milk products are made on shared lines with tree nuts and soy and not labelled as such.  Considering almost all non-dairy milks are made in shared facilities with milk, I bet there is a high probability of other milk products having a cc risk. 

Just throwing that out there.

Hi Amy,

Thanks for getting in touchóand for your commitment to knowing whatís in your food!

At this time we donít have dedicated lines for our products. Our products are manufactured at many different facilities throughout the United States, because of this we cannot guarantee certain ingredients, such as tree nuts, are not being stored at each facility.

However, we take allergenic food concerns seriously and have instituted allergen control programs at each facility manufacturing our products. Our allergen control programs consist of several components, designed to comprehensively address allergenic food concerns at multiple points of production.

We know you're trying to make the best decision for you and your family, and we donít take that lightly. Because we know this is such an important consideration for you, we are not comfortable providing information that could change without notice as we shift production among our facilities.

We really appreciate hearing from you óyour questions help us understand what matters most to the families who count on Horizon.
 

If you have any additional questions please feel free to reply to this email.

From our family to yours,

John & the Horizon Team

The 3qt is currently $49 on Amazon.  Not sure if that might be a nice size for a single guy or not, Bensmom.  Maybe better to have a 6qt, and have leftovers when he does decide to cook.  But, thought Iíd let folks know.  Thatís $29% off the list price.
