Instant Pot Recipes
Since its release 10 years ago, the Instant Pot has made waves with how it revolutionizes cooking in the kitchen. In that short amount of time, it has become a favorite kitchen appliance because it is so dang versatile. The Instant Pot is a sort of "jack of all trades.” Rather than having to purchase a pressure cooker or a slow pressure cooker (like the Crock Pot), the Instant Pot is an all-in-one deal. That's why we're constantly adding more tasty recipes for the Instant Pot lover!
The Instant Pot is not only great because of what it can cook, but how it cooks. It’s a safe appliance, with built-in safety features. The lid must be securely fastened before it’ll pressurize, which gives me peace of mind that it won’t go steaming until I’m ready.
As far as design, it looks sleek and can accommodate custom designs. I have a black and stainless-steel design which looks great if left out on the counter. It can also be stored away out of sight because it doesn’t take up too much space. It weighs just under 12 pounds.
As you can imagine, the Instant Pot gets its name from one of its best features...instant cooking. It is equipped to take on high pressure and heat, which makes for fast cooking. However, the Instant Pot does a lot more than that. If you’re out and about for the day, turn the Instant Pot on and let is slowly cook food throughout the day. It can even baked break-- the sky is the limit! It will win you over as you use it as a rice cooker, high pressure cooker and low pressure cooker! It brings everything to one place.
You may be thinking, what should I cook in my Instant Pot? Will recipes be different in an Instant Pot? The answer is many things and yes! Thankfully, there are so many Instant Pot recipes available. Meat and side dishes are some of the most popular dishes. Chicken, pot roast, pulled pork, and other meat can be cooked much faster in one of these. But there are hundreds of other dishes that the Instant Pot can make. It makes delicious batches of hard boiled eggs that are easy to peel. It makes your favorite chili. It makes rice and beans that are cooked to perfection. The Instant Pot is an award-winning appliance because it is able to function in so many capacities.
Plus, Instant Pots are super easy to clean up. The cooker base and exterior must be washed by hand, but everything else can be thrown in the dishwasher. This makes clean-up go so much faster. The Instant Pot is meant to make cooking easier, not harder.
