Have you heard about the Instant Pot? Have you been thinking about getting one? If you answered “yes” to one or both of these questions, I am here to tell you the reasons why you should get an Instant Pot and share with you some of my favorite Instant Pot Recipes.
What is the InstantPot
The instant Pot essentially serves as 5 cooking appliances in one: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer and warmer. It is super versatile and makes cooking a breeze.
Reasons to Get an InstantPot
I love my InstantPot because it truly is a one stop shop for making meals. Some of my favorite meals are ones where you can do all the cooking in the pot. One of my favorite meals is cheesy chicken and broccoli with rice. I sauté the chicken in the instant pot and then dump the remaining ingredients in to finish the cooking under pressure. Because everything is also done in the one pot, clean up is a breeze.
Set it and Forget It
I love that once I put the lid on for sealing, I can walk away and do other things. There is virtually no need to hover over and “watch” the food, unlike when you are cooking at the stove. While many people think the InstantPot will save time, it does take some time for the pot to come to pressure to cook your food fast. However, it’s the ability to dump, set the timer, and go about your business that is such a good draw for this busy mom.
Using Good Ingredients
My kid LOVES mac and cheese. The recipe on my Pinterest Board HERE is her favorite. I usually make a weekly batch and it’s awesome because I know what is going in her food. I choose high my own high quality ingredients to use in my recipes. No more powdered “cheese.”
These are some of the top reasons I love my InstantPot. As a busy mom, it really helps make dinner a breeze. I was at first intimidated by pressure cooking, but now I can’t imagine what my life was like before the InstantPot. (Actually, I can. It involved a lot of eating out).
