After a long day at work and a long commute, the last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time in the kitchen making dinner. You might want to serve your family a home-cooked meal but the thought of dirtying all of your pots and pans is just too overwhelming. Luckily the Instant Pot cooking is an easy way to make a healthy dinner for your family.
The Instant Pot is a well built, heavy duty multi-cooker that does it all. It is very user-friendly (hint: You can even skip the user manual and just watch a couple of YouTube videos before using your Instant Pot for the first time!). It’s easy to clean and replacement parts such as the sealing ring can easily be purchased at Bed, Bath and Beyond or Amazon.
Instantly hooked on Instant Pot cooking
After trying it for the first time in 2017 we were hooked! It’s much easier to use than a stovetop pressure cooker, which can cause burns if used improperly, and works better and is faster and more versatile than a Crock-Pot. A pressure cooker and crockpot are slow-cooking tools. The Instant Pot is great for beginner and intermediate chefs. It has one-touch controls and can be programmed to remember the way you cook. There are four models of Instant Pot to choose from. You can pick the one that suits your needs the best.
Benefits of using the Instant Pot
There are several benefits to using an Instant Pot. First, it will save you a lot of time when making soups, broth, and braised dishes. Second, the Instant Pot does the job of seven appliances in one (pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt maker and warmer), saving you counter space. Third, the Instant Pot saves energy. It cooks food faster, which also helps lock in all the delicious nutrients and vitamins our bodies need. Meals cooked in the Instant Pot are packed with flavors and the meat always comes out tender. In the long run, the Instant Pot will help save money by using less cooking time and energy.
Take Care of your Instant Pot
My top tip to keep your Instant Pot working optimally is to remove the sealing ring to wash after every use. This prevents build-up that can break the seal and impact performance. If something does go wrong, the company has a great reputation for its warranty.
When it comes to what to put in your Instant Pot, your imagination is the limit. There are hundreds of published cookbooks for the Instant Pot brand and countless recipes online created just for this superstar tool. The Food Network even created a cooking show just for the Instant Pot called “Pressure Point.”
The Instant Pot is a lifesaver for busy families looking to save time without skimping on nutrition or taste. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a delicious Instant Pot soup to serve! Make meal prep easier with an Instant Pot of your own.
