This week I decided to put the Instant Pot I received for Christmas to the ultimate stoner test: can you use the IP to make cannabutter or cannabis-infused oil?
I stumbled across some tips and a suggested method in a comment on Reddit. I do not remember the link but if you search for it in there, I'm sure you'll find the same instructions I am about to share below.
Apparently, you can use the IP to not only infuse your fats, but it can also decarb the cannabis too.
I was pretty impressed with the ease of this method. I also felt it didn't release the scent into my entire house, which was an added bonus. On the downside, I'm not sure the final product resulted in as potent of infusions as I have come to expect with other methods.
For the olive oil, I used 1/8th of cannabis for 1 cup. At maximum infusion, I would have ended up with about 535mg THC. In the butter, I used 1/4th of slightly more concentrated cannabis. At the maximum, this was about 1600mg THC/cup.

In the form below, enter the approximate percentage of THC (or CBD) of your flower or concentrate. Then how many grams you're planning to use. Followed by the number of cups (or parts of cups) of oil or butter you're planning to infuse. Hit the "Calculate" button and see the approximate dosage per teaspoon and tablespoon.
