|QR||The Instant Pot QR or quick release is an abbreviation or term that you will see in the majority of recipes you will find online or in cookbooks. This simply means that once the Pot has done with its cooking cycle then you will move the know from sealing to venting. It is very important to make sure you keeps your hands, face or anything that might get harmed by steam.||Y|
|NR||The Instant Pot NR or natural release is when your cooking cycle is done and you just let the Instant Pot sit and do nothing. The steam will slowly naturally release inside the Instant Pot. This is not as common as the Instant Pot Quick Release however you might find a combination of the two where it says something like NR for 15 then do a QR.||N|
