  1. Is the steam function under “low pressure” or “high pressure” when you press it? I changed mine previous for a recipe and I can’t remember which one was the default…thanks!

  2. I don’t want to melt the snap on lid for the egg bite mold. It won’t melt using the steam mode for Instant Pot?

    Thanks
