My Review

INSTANT COOKING WITH SIX SISTERS' STUFF is another cookbook from these sisters with a mix of recipes from simple to more complex, and ranging from the multicooker being a single step in a recipe to making an entire meal in the one pot. All the recipes come with easy-to-follow instructions and full-color pictures. Recipes are organized into basics, main dishes, side dishes and desserts and snacks. Some of the recipes do feel like an unnecessary use of a multi-cooker (such as using it to let dough rise), but most utilize this kitchen appliance well to create delicious meals in a quick and fairly easy way. There are several recipes that will easily become family favorites as well as recipes for family gatherings or entertaining. A cookbook that overall will get plenty of use in multicooker homes everyday, on weekends and holidays.

Bone-In Ribs

I've read through this entire book, cover to cover, and we've tried several recipes as well. At first glance, I thought the basics section was a bit unnecessary since most multicookers come with these recipes, but it was nice to have them in the cookbook and for a few things that I didn't have. I loved the main and side dishes sections the most as we'll use those recipes quite often. My favorites were the recipes that only use the multicooker. Some of the recipes that use it just as a step or to bake something felt like more work as well as more mess than not using the appliance, so those would be my least favorite recipes. 

Homemade Ground Turkey Pasta Sauce

What surprised me, and shouldn't have, was that there were some recipes in here that I wouldn't even think of using my multicooker for, like Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches. This would be easier to just do in a pan on the stove, right? What I found was that the meat was super tender and easy to eat on the sandwich versus being a bit chewy or tough if just grilled or sautéed. I also never thought about doing ribs in my multicooker, but it makes them super tender and it's really quick to get them that way versus using the oven, grill or crockpot. It also doesn't heat up my kitchen, so for summertime this is a huge plus. There were other recipes too that I wouldn't think of cooking in this appliance and I really like how this opens up what I can do in this and provides detailed instructions so recipes turn out well too.

Hawaiian Meatballs

In the end, was it what I wished for? There will be some adjusting here and there for climate and amounts, but overall this was a fun cookbook to use with a good mix of recipes. Several will be repeats, especially on busy nights when I need to get dinner on the table quickly. There were crowd pleasers and a mix of flavors as well. Recommended to multicooker cooks who are looking for simple and easy and to fans of Six Sisters' Stuff.
