    This was easy and tasty I’m going to try it with different blends of cheese I also used about 2oz more cheese than the recipe and it was really good

    Really easy. May need some garlic powder or mustard powder.

    Very good and easy to make. Be careful of manually releasing steam valve as I made a little mess my first time making this recipe.

    Amazing! I have tried many times to make Mac and cheese from scratch but it never turns out quite right and my husband never approves it but he loved this recipe. This is the first Mac and cheese recipe that he prefers over boxed. My Only complaint is that when I released the pressure, some of the starch came shooting out but I still turned out perfect. Will forever make this Mac and cheese :)

    This was so delicious and extremely quick and easy to make! There was quite a bit leftover (2 adult household), but it warmed up really nicely.
