Home-cooks everywhere have decided to give their beloved Crock-Pots an upgrade for this smart multi-use, programmable pressure cooker. This technologically advanced device does the job of seven different kitchen appliances or tools, meaning there is virtually nothing that can’t be cooked in the Instant Pot. Meals not only come together incredibly fast, but they are beyond delicious!
What makes this pressure cooker different?
A single Instant Pot can be a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté/browning pan, warmer, steamer, and a yogurt maker. All one has to do is plug it in, tap a button and it does everything else. Unlike a traditional slow cooker, the instant pot gets dinner on the table hours faster. The Instant Pot promises even the most inexperienced cooks a fast, delicious, homemade meal. Whether you are paleo, vegetarian, or just trying to eat healthier, pressure cooking is the key to healthy fast food.
What do I make in the Instant Pot?
With so many settings, the Instant Pot works best for soft and succulent recipes like soups, stews, beans, risotto and large hunks of meat. Unlike other pressure cookers, the sauté setting allows you to brown meats and veggies before cooking. The only downside is that there are no options for crispy or crunchy dishes since the steam adds moisture. In this case, some recipes like roasted potatoes or delicate vegetables are better prepared by other methods. Nonetheless, users still rave about the Instant Pot’s ability to cook complex dishes like a dream.
