Can I leave my Instant Pot on and leave the house?

We know that one of the advantages of the Instant Pot is that it’s fairly hands-off. But when pressure cooking foods, it’s never a good idea to leave the Pot unattended. Unexpected accidents or problems can be prevented if you are on hand to watch the warning signs (and possibly clean up the mess).
