Instant Pot is the brand name for the world #1 electric multi-cooker that adds a new dimension to the approach of pressure cooking. In essence, it is a sealed appliance that makes use of steam and high pressure to cook food faster and more perfectly every time. An Instant Pot can do the work of several separate kitchen appliances such as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, warmer, sauté pan, and yogurt maker. Since the days of old-style pressure cooking with stories of pressure cookers exploding, pressure cooking technology has improved immensely providing products that are safer and more user-friendly than ever. The creators of Instant Pot have taken this technology to a new level by developing a machine with multiple functions, more speed, and more convenience. What can an Instant Pot be Used For? A number of pre-programmed buttons will make your cooking super easy, including a 24-hour delay function that makes it possible to have your meal ready whenever you want it. Using the pressure cooker function can speed up cooking by six times and, depending on the model, can also be used to saute;, steam, sear, and cook rice. While there are dozens of ways in which this amazing appliance can be used to make cooking easier and simpler, here are some interesting uses for an Instant Pot: 1. Hearty Breakfasts in Less than 5 Minutes Great for the early morning breakfast rush, you can cook a big batch of steel cut oats in five minutes or quick oats in less than 3 minutes. 2. Quick Mac and Cheese In the time it would normally take you to boil the water for pasta, you can cook dry macaroni in four minutes in an Instant Pot. After that all you have to do is add cheese sauce and seasonings. 3. Tacos and Pulled Pork Dishes What used to be a very time-consuming dish can be made in less than an hour. Just brown the pork on all sides before pressure cooking it for 15 minutes per pound. In the meantime prepare your taco toppings and warm the tortillas. The pork will be fork-tender and can be used in other pulled pork recipes. 4. Yoghurt Making Home-made yogurt is easy to make in an Instant Pot. Simply bring the milk to the boil in the pot and wait for it to cool down before stirring in your yogurt culture. Set the Instant Pot to the Yoghurt setting and leave the bacteria to do the rest of the work. 5. Boiled Eggs Boiling a big batch of eggs for a crowd or for making deviled eggs is so much easier and the shells just seem to slip off so much easier when using an Instant Pot. 6.
