    Default insert

    Hi,

    Does the word 'insert' only apply to documents and words?

    Is this sentence correct ' Insert all the ingredients into the pot'

    Thanks for your help.

    I don't think it's only for documents and words since it's very common to see the notice "insert coin" on public electronic machines.

    But I think it's not applicable for your example since if you insert an object into something, you put the object inside it.

    Neither a native nor a teacher

    Not a teacher.

    Maybe just 'add' or 'put' all the ingradients...
