    The New York Cheesecake is one of the most tender plates you can prepare. Softness and sweetness combined for creating a legendary desert. It's difficult, it's delicate, but the result is insuperable.

    "New York Cheesecake is great. I wouldn't call this an Instant Pot recipe though. I think easy when I think of Instant Pot. This recipe is not easy at all. Delicious yes, but a lot of work and focus needs to go into it in order to get the correct result. I wouldn't say this is the best Instant pot recipe for someone who likes to cook with ease. "

    "No times are given which is really important with an instant pot recipe, you can still overcook things in them. Also ribs take up a lot of space so will have to be cut down. This might be 'A good' instant pot recipe, but I'm not sold on it being one of the best without more recipe information. "

    Making your own yogurt may be a little intimidating but practice makes perfect. Commercial yogurt may be readily accessible but doing it yourself allows you to tweak the flavor and consistency to your heart's content.

    "Making Yogurt with an instant pot is a very complicated and long process. There's a whole lot of steps to it and you only get to sample the finished product after around fifteen hours! In that time frame, you could have made all your meals for the entire next week. Making yogurt in your instant pot would definitely save money but that alone isn't worth calling it the best recipe. My favorite thing to cook with my instant pot is taco meat, it's incredibly flavorful and tender and I make it nearly every week. "

    "There are not many things more american than potato salad. It's great with everything. And you can do so many things with it. Add radishes, subtract celery, add more mustard, use red potatos for color. It's really the all american dish. And perfect for picnics and potlucks!"

    "Giving it a 3 because the solution is busted and doesn't lead to anything. Not even a clickable link. Now that aside the idea is solid. Instant pots are great to make chicken noodle soup in and if you can find a recipe, I say do it."
