As the Instant Pot’s popularity has recently boomed, there are plenty of Instant Pot compatible cookbooks (along with eBook versions) being published. Browse through your local bookstore, or head on over to Amazon.com to see what’s available right now.
Don’t forget what a great resource your friends and family are when it comes to sharing recipes. If you have friends or family members who are Instant Pot fans, ask them for their favorite recipes and jot them down on recipe cards. If there’s a group of you, you can start to exchange recipes regularly. If someone brings an Instant Pot dish to a potluck or gathering, ask them for the recipe. It won’t take you long to establish an excellent little library of tried and true methods.
