Do you ever have that moment of panic late in the afternoon, wondering what you are going to make for dinner? I do, and it happens all of the time! Well lucky for me it’s Instant Pot to the rescue.
I have been cooking with pressure cookers for years. My oldest is around 21 years old and is a Kuhn Rikon. It’s awesome and huge (because I ordered the hotel size since I was catering back then), and I used it all the time. Since then I have added a few more to my collection (no judgement please!), but always the stove top models. That is until now. In fact, I use my stove top cookers much less now since this pot is so much easier. You don’t have to watch it, to make sure that the pressure isn’t getting to high, and constantly adjusting the flame. This is seriously a set it and forget it appliance (thank you Ron Popeil for coining that phrase). It also makes yogurt, steams, slow cooks, makes rice and grains, has a sauté function and more!
They have a number of different models, but my favorite is the DUO60. Instant Pot is now offering a special deal for my readers, which is the best price in town! $50 off any model plus free shipping. There is a link on the side bar, and all you have to do is click on that. Then use the code “everyday dish” at checkout for your discount.
I will add that I do get a tiny commission when you purchase one through my site, which helps support both of our websites and our everyday dish cooking show. All I can say is thank you! Every little bit helps.
If you have any questions about the Instant Pot, let me know. I am starting to develop some easy recipes to use in it, which I hope to film for Everyday Dish soon. Otherwise you can use any stovetop pressure cooker recipes, with no need to adjust the cooking times. I make beans and dals in it every week, as well as soups, chilis and even mashed potatoes.
