Press the Sauté function on the control panel of the Instant Pot. Click the Adjust key and you can choose less, normal or more- heat setting. I selected the normal, it will start to heat up and you will see ON sign on the LED display. After the pot has turned hot, you will see the HOT sign on the display. Now, you can start sautéing. Important: While sautéing do not close the pot with the instant pot lid.
