Have you added an instant pot to your kitchen appliance collection yet? We did and it has completely changed how we cook in the kitchen on a weekly basis. We were able to get rid of or donate 5 of our old kitchen appliances that the instant pot made obsolete.
If you don’t know what an instant pot is it’s a fairly new kitchen appliance that is 7 tools in one. You can use an instant pot for all of the following functions: pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, saute pan, yogurt maker, steamer, and warming pot.
We were skeptical about getting an instant pot. New appliances always seem to pop up claiming to replace half your kitchen. After listening to our family members rave and reading through some of the 26,000 positive Amazon reviews, we made the jump.
It’s honestly been life changing, we highly recommend you look into getting your own to help simplify your life. The best place to purchase your own instant pot is right on Amazon.
After using the instant pot for a few months now, we put together a list of some of our favorite instant pot recipes. As always these recipes are easy to follow and absolutely delicious. Enjoy!
