The Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Is Going To Be Your New Kitchen BFF
Ladies! The Instant Pot Pressure Cooker has been a game-changer in my meal planning. It has made my life so much easier and I am going to show you how it will make your life easier too.
You are going to call the Instant Pot your new kitchen BFF. It is a pressure cooker but not like the type you used to hear about that were dangerous and exploded. Oh, no this is so different.
The Instant Pot, like the crockpot, can make easy and delicious meals. The HUGE difference is that the pressure cooker makes them in minutes not hours! That is right how about getting dinner on the table in 10 minutes or less. Are you excited? I know you are.
- It’s simple to operate, and it’s safe enough for you to turn it on and walk away, with a keep-warm function so your food will be ready to eat when you are.
- Unlike most of the competition, it includes an uncoated, stainless steel cooking pot with a tri-ply disk on the bottom that makes it better suited for sautéing onions or browning beef.
- It has a detachable lid that makes it easier to clean than other models.
The Instant Pot Can Replace These Kitchen Items
- Slow cooker
- Pressure cooker
- Rice cooker
- Oatmeal maker
- Saute pan
- Yogurt maker
- Keep-warm serving pot
Benefits of the Pressure Cooker
Foods are cooked much faster by pressure cooking than by other methods. Typically electric pressure cookers can reduce cooking time by up to 70% compared with other methods.
With pressure cooking, heat is very evenly, deeply, and quickly distributed. It is not necessary to immerse food in water: enough water to keep the pressure cooker filled with steam is sufficient. Because of this, vitamins and minerals are not leached or dissolved away by water. Since steam surrounds the food, foods are not oxidized by air exposure at heat, so asparagus, broccoli, and so on retain their bright green colors and phytochemicals. The cooked food keeps its original flavor.
Instant Pot is one of the greenest kitchen appliances, saving up to 70% electricity in comparable cooking to other appliances, e.g. oven, boiling pot, and stove, steamer, etc. It is highly energy-efficient.
One-pot meals, less clean up
You can create so many meals and only use one pot. Saute your lean proteins add veggies and then seal it up and you are good to go. I love making chili and soups with my pressure cooker.
Set it and forget it
You put the timer on and then walk away until it’s done. Go relax, play with the kids or make a phone call. The beauty of it is that you don’t have to stand there and watch it like you do if you are cooking on a stove.
