Hey friends! I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with lots of love, and turkey (or ham)! Did you see the deal of the day going on? If you’re a busy family and you don’t own an Instant Pot yet, my only question for you is this… WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
I cannot even tell you how much this gadget has simplified my life. Yes, I am that serious. At first, I thought it was just a trend, but then I got hooked! I actually own TWO of these now, both the 6qt & the 8qt. And, I’m pretty sure I’ll be adding a 3qt to my collection too. Not because I need a 3qt pressure cooker, but because I do need a 3qt slow cooker, and this can be used for that as well. I’m all for double-duty kitchen appliances.
My advice is this, if you are regularly cooking for 5 or more people, go with the 8qt. You’ll appreciate the extra room in the pot. It makes it easy to double/triple recipes to make freezer meals too.
The thing I love this for the most is the fact that everything can cook in one pot, the pot is dishwasher safe, and cleans up beautifully. I regularly use mine to cook frozen beef and chicken, soups, and even hot dogs (on occasion).
Cooking rice? Just use equal parts rice & water, and set it to ‘manual, 3 min’. SO SIMPLE!
Oh you guys, I have SO MANY Instant Pot tips and recipes to share with you! I hope you’ll snag one today and I can walk you through how to use it soon!
