Instant Pot Review

Instant Pot Love-2I had said I would let you know what I thought of my new Instant Pot after I’d used it a bit… The week after we got it, I used it every day to try out each feature and program… And have been using it a couple times a week since then.

And I love it!!

Since owning it we have used it to pressure cooked a couple things, browned meat before pressure cooking stew, steamed spaghetti squash (that saves a lot of time!), used it to crockpot chili, made several batches of rice and I’m now using it to make my yogurt!

I am impressed with the overall quality. Several little details that are built in are genius- a spoon rest, the handles holding the lid for you, and a cord minder.

Instant Pot Love-1I also like that it has a stainless steel cooking pot, and it is indeed a very nice pot. It has a nice thick bottom disk , so I’ve haven’t had one thing stick or burn! And it’s super easy to clean.

The programming and settings can be a little confusing at first. There is a lot of them! But they send a user manual, cookbook and quick reference sheet. I taped the quick reference sheet on the inside of one of my kitchen cabinet doors, so it’s always handy when I’m programming it. 

I’m definitely looking forward to using it more, and finding new ways to save time on food prep! 😉

Christmas happened early – my new Instant Pot!

We had been discussing an Instant Pot as one of our Christmas purchases to each other. And then it went on sale! So it arrived a little early, and we opened it 🙂

We had been talking about getting a rice cooker, and my PB’s grandmother’s pressure cooker had started to warp so we thought it might be a good idea to stop using it…! 

I was super excited to find out that the same appliance could do both! I have an OCD thing about single purpose tools, especially large ones that use up a lot of space but are only needed once a year… Oh it drives me crazy!

In an effort to check out such a multiply purpose tool, and try all the settings, next week’s menu is going to use it every night to cook dinner! So come back to see what I think after a whole week 😉
