It works as a slow cooker and pressure cooker in one – a device that you can use to make yogurt, saute vegetables, and whip up the tastiest rice in just a few minutes.
It’s called an Instant Pot.
Unlike other Electric Pressure Cookers, the Instant Pot has an uncoated, stainless steel inner pot with a tri-ply disc on the underside.
The Instant Pot is worlds more amazing than our stovetop pressure cooker. I don’t have to stand at the base of the stove to ensure that the pot doesn’t blow up ~ I don’t have to monitor the stove (which is gas) to ensure little hands don’t grab anything. The Instant Pot can be turned on – and you can walk away – when the food is done, the device will switch to a keep warm function so keep your food nice and toasty until you are ready to sit down.
Deep down, I’m infatuated with this thing. It has been LIFE changing!
One of the best ways to use the Instant Pot is to make dinner fuss-free and easy – it is one of the best ways to make chicken for the family.
