Instant Pot - Worth it?

BouquiGarnet | Jul 18, 201502:05 PM     23

I bought the Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 cooker on a whim on Amazon Prime day for $100, mostly due to the raves here about it.

But do I need it or should I return it? I have an aluminum stovetop pressure cooker that I like a lot - I mostly do just beans in it. I have a crockpot that I don't really like - the temperature never seems quite right - I think it runs a bit too hot. So if the IP can serve as a good crock pot it might be worth it. Also considering it because of the yogurt making setting.

Thoughts?
