The Mini operates in the exact same way as all of the other IP models - same cook times.

Instant Pot came out with a smaller model for those folks that wanted a smaller footprint machine or were only cooking for two (very popular with RVers).

I already have 2 instant pots so I have no need (at least for right now hahaha) for the Mini. I was excited to see it with the gift card deal as it makes it the cheapest anywhere since it came out a few weeks ago. Not sure why the thumbs down, probably from those not familiar with the IP ecosystem of machines.

my guess is it's because the 6 qt is regularly discounted at kohls to about the same price. Occasionally even cheaper.

Wow, I've been hoping they'd come out with a smaller instant pot for a while. This is perfect! Based on the deals we've seen in the past, I expect the price will go down so I will probably snag this on a future deal

This is the same as the sales price of the 6qt. My guess is that you can get a great deal on this in the months ahead.

I find the 6qt to be a good size for my family. Can make a pretty large bowl of good food, around 5 quarts yet fits (barely) in the most convenient storage cabinet. I just made a new chicken rice recipe that turned out well. Anything smaller would be too small for us, bigger wouldn't fit in the cabinet and likely be a heavier lift as well. Now if you just leave it out on the counter like many do then I guess there's no issue there.

Three quarts is too small, trust me. You can only fill a pressure cooker about 2/3 up to the top in order to leave room for things to expand, steam, etc. This means you really only get 2 quarts of useable space which is really tiny. Almost all pressure cooker recipes expect a 6 quart model and have the proportions of ingredients set accordingly.

Well, that's not true at all. I'm not saying it isn't the case for some things, but it certainly isn't the case for all and it's certainly not the case for a single thing I've made in my IP. There's a max fill line for a reason, and it's definitely more than 2/3 full. Maybe some stovetop pressure cookers can only handle 2/3.
