Since Cyber Monday, our wellness contributor, Tara Felice, has been raving about the new kitchen appliance that has changed her life. So, our food writer (aka Little Mama, aka Theresa Cintula), eagerly tested it out herself and LOVES how quickly and easily she can whip up dinner. I think I’m going to need to order one of these wizards myself…
Here are the reasons Graye Note is obsessing over the Instant Pot:
- It’s fast. You can cook an entire chicken meal in 20 minutes.
- It can be left unattended, and you can cook in advance of meal time because it automatically turns itself off and changes itself to “keep warm.”
- It cooks meat that is super moist and falls off the bone.
- It sautés, sears, and browns.
- It cooks rice.
- It makes yogurt.
- It steams veggies.
- It acts as a warmer.
Basically, this appliance will replace your slow cooker and get the job done much quicker and just as conveniently. I love the idea of not needing to use extra pans for browning meat, because you can do that right in the Instant Pot and then leave it to finish cooking.
