Instant Pot Porridge - what am I doing wrong

Have just bought an instant pot - and have been lurking on posts here. Done a few basic recipes well.
Tried porridge overnight on the timer.
Porridge button and delay and followed the instructions I found in a recipe but it burnt on the bottom. The actual porridge on top was lovely but does the burnt on bottom mean too long or too little liquid.
Confused -?!!

Are you cooking it the pot in pot method? I always do this and it never burns. I just use the high pressure button rather than the porridge button.

No maybe I need to do this! Do you use just a glass bowl

Glass or metal or ceramic, all will be fine. Google 'Instant Pot porridge Pot in Pot method' for full instructions. Basically you put water in the metal insert pot, then your smaller bowl (with oats, water/milk etc) on the trivet inside and cook on Manual for a few mins.

Yes, cooking pot in pot has been a revelation for me! Can cook lots of different things without washing up the main bowl between uses grin

1l pudding basins fit in the pot really well- I found a metal one at TK Maxx that is perfect.

I cook beans and make my yogurt pot in pot. I definitely recommend making yogurt! So easy and delicious.

Thanks will definitely try this. Did it again this am and it was burnt again. So need to try the pot - have been using oat milk

I use a metal bowl that I got from aldi which sits on the trivet, was about £3 for a set of three. I have used oat milk which has worked well, find it very convenient to put on, have a shower and it's ready to eat.
