If you’re like me you’ve probably been inundated with posts on social media and mommy blogs all raving about how amazing the Instant Pot is. I finally had to try it for myself to see what all the hype was about. In this review we’ll go over the pros and cons of ownership as well as give a general overview of what you can achieve with this kitchen appliance of the future.
The exterior of the Instant Pot is unmistakably cool, it looks like something out of the Jetsons, it features a sleek brushed stainless steel exterior, and heavy duty plastic construction, it’s built like a tank and that is important given it’s task of super pressurizing your food at extreme temperatures. The interior mirror finish pot is removable and features measurements by the quart on the inside.
The buttons can be a bit overwhelming for someone who is unfamiliar with these machines, with a little bit of a learning curve this is easily overcome, though.
Cooking with Pressure
Like most people looking into the Instant Pot I was a bit skeptical that it would deliver on it’s promise of delivering no compromise meals in a flash. However, I was pleasantly surprised by just how capable this machine was.
