Have You Heard Of The Instant Pot?
The Instant Pot is the perfect solution for those who like the idea of being able to cook a meal in 3 to 10 minutes of pressure cooking. For instance, you can prepare a tender roast in a fraction of the time that it takes in the oven or slow cooker.
I have always been intrigued by the idea of a pressure cooker, but to be perfectly honest, it has still scared me. While past generations were comfortable using a stovetop pressure cooker, most women of this age have been intimidated by the hissing and the potential of having it blow up.
Because of this, pressure cooking has fallen out of favor in the last few decades. All that has changed with the arrival of the Instant Pot – a self-contained, electrical pressure cooker with plenty of built-in safety features.
If you are comfortable using a Slow Cooker, the Instant Pot will become your new favorite appliance in no time. The Instant Pot is similar in size – it is also a self-contained unit that sits on your countertop and plugs into an outlet – and features a digital interface that makes it very simple to set.
You tell it how long you want to cook your meal under pressure, set the timer and you are good to go. It automatically brings up and holds the pressure at a safe level and will not allow you to open the pot while it is pressurized. Once the meal cooked, you can release the steam valve to relieve the pressure safely. Moreover, voila! Meals made in a fraction of the time.
It is not surprising then that this new take on an old kitchen tool is quickly gaining popularity. The cooking is very hands-off. You just set it, and then walk away until you are food is ready. It has all the advantages of using the slow cooker but takes a fraction of the time. Perfect, when you want to get a home cooked meal on the table fast.
Instant Pots are flying off the shelves and are best sellers on Amazon and other major online retailers. You can find plenty of fans online who share their favorite recipes, tips, and adaptations on blogs.
