I enjoy cooking and would love to have one of these pots, I am unable to afford one trying to support my family. I come from a family of 12 children and I kept a lot of my moms recipes, but I have no pot to use for them. I would appreciate my name thrown into the running for one. MY sister treats me to fast foods every now and then and I can't stand eating that garbage anymore. I like my home cook meals. Thank yo for entering my name in the running.

You must have been reading my mind. I was thinking that I need to get my Instant Pot back out soon. Now I have inspiration!
