I recently discovered the latest cooking kitchen sensation that is sweeping the nation… the Instant Pot!
I’d never used a pressure cooker before getting this little baby but now I am hooked! There are so many things you can do with it. You can sauté, steam and it even has a slow cooker feature. It is a time saver as well as gives you a healthier way to cook. No need to use canned beans and legumes any more – you can easily cook dried beans with no soaking in under an hour – and they are much more delicious! Chili tastes like it’s been cooking low and slow for hours. The Instant Pots come in varying models. I have the 6qt Duo which is perfect for me. They have 3qt and 8qt options. Regardless of which one you get, it is a worthy investment! And be sure to join The Instant Pot Community page on Facebook. It is a great group of people who love to share tips and recipes and are generally snark-free (rare on FB).
