  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Dinner Add! I put this risotto with the lemon chicken and it was totally awesome. I made it with Better than Bullion soup instead of water and didn't add more parmesan cheese. It was a rave for my 6 guests too! Don't miss trying this one.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I purchased a variety of these ready-to-make Instant Pot containers, and they are all pretty much equally terrible. Either lack of taste, or awful taste, and even if you are creative with doctoring them up with fresh ingredients, as I did, the taste is still mediocre at best. Expensive, waste of money. If you already have this only, use lots of lemon juice, it helps.
