When you are just starting out with pressure cooking, there are really three buttons you need to know:

Manual/Pressure Cook. The main button—if a recipe says to cook at High Pressure, this is the button you need. Just press this button, then use the [+] and [-] buttons to change the cooking time. After a brief pause, the Instant Pot will beep to tell you it’s beginning the pressure cooking process. The genuine call of this button depends on your model of Instant Pot. [Some Model Link]

Saute. Press the Saute button to brown meats, saute vegetables, and simmer ingredients in the pressure cooking pot. Adjust Saute to less for simmer, normal to sauté and more for browning.

Keep Warm/Cancel. Use this button to cancel a function or to turn off your Instant Pot. [img6]
