It works as a slow cooker and pressure cooker in one – you can use it to make yogurt, saute vegetables, and cook frozen chicken in minutes. It’s 10x faster than a Crock Pot and really stops to make you ask… why would you still use a crock pot when you have a device that can cook in a fraction of the time?
I mean, why not?!
Unlike other Electric Pressure Cookers, the Instant Pot has an uncoated, stainless steel inner pot with a tri-ply disc on the underside. Most other pressure cookers have a teflon coated insert (unlike the Instant Pot) – making the Instant Pot a better option.
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.
I’m crazy about this machine and I use it several times a day. I have had it since December, 2015 and I still use it just as much if not more than the first day I got it.
One of the best ways to use the Instant Pot is to make healthy, easy dinners in a fraction of the time. Here are over 15 easy Instant Pot recipes to work into your dinner rotation.
