  1. So these can be saved and next day heat in microwave? I have made these a few times and all of a sudden when heating my jars have broke. Not sure why, I love these jars such a great breakfast grab and go. So should they not be heated in microwave? Just found out you can’t use older mason jars need to use the ones that say microwave safe so wanted to let people to use these jars. love your videos thanks .I just ordered on amazon the pyrex 1 cup and 2 cup bowls with lids. They work great! Thanks again

  2. Kathy, thank you! I just got done with one of the best breakfasts I have ever made.
    I used the taller Mason Jar glasses with the handles. Gives you something to hold onto, since the glass is so hot.
    I did spray the inside with Pam. It did help a lot to eat the whole thing and clean up.
    I made layers of totts, beaten egg, cut bacon, salsa and shredded cheese. I made two of these levels.
    I cooked it on high pressure for 10 minutes with a nateral release. It was twice as high as your’s, so I cooked it twice as long.
    Please keep those videos coming.

  3. Thank you for your video. Don’t pay any attention to the troll’s comments. I just got my instant pot last week. So far I’ve done beef stroganoff and chicken and dumplings and I don’t cook, lol. I would have never thought of putting jars in an instant pot. I would have thought they would break or something. I might have to try this. Have a great day.

  4. I don’t have the rack to my Instant Pot; if you don’t have a rack, just fold up a dish towel and set it on the bottom. I add 1 1/2 to 2 cups of water if the towel is particularly absorbent. It will protect your jars just fine.

  5. Interesting idea. First time that I have seen someone use Mason jars and aluminum foil, inside an Instant Pot.  I remembered that many people home-can food in Mason jars, using a pressure cooker [non-electric.]  Scares me to think that it could explode, yet I know that pressure cookers are used in home canning.
