Instant Pot® is the must-have kitchen appliance that everyone's talking about—with justification. After all who wants to spend time cooking when you could be reading. And eating out gets expensive. That cash could be spent on other things...like books.
We've searched out the Instant Pot cookbooks you need in your kitchen for Spring and Summer. Oh, and if you're new to the pressure cooking idea, these aren't the type of slow cookers that evoke thoughts of rushing home on a dark stormy night to find a heavy, hot casserole waiting for you. Instant Pot is faster and versatile, helping you enjoy more of the sunshine, with summery recipes.
Does the instant pot live up to the hype? Yes, mostly, if you use it right. The seemingly impossible cooking times don't include heat up time (the pot uses compressed steam, so it needs time to build up and later release). How to Instant Pot will show you the tricks to get the most from the appliance. It also has more than 100 recipes so you can cook perfect risotto in six minutes, no stirring required, five kinds of yogurt, desserts, and more.
