Joining the Instant Pot® Fun

It seems like EVERYONE got an Instant Pot for Christmas, doesn’t it?  It’s everywhere in my Facebook feed and our esteemed “Recipe Engineer”, Heidi, has been using one long before that.  I didn’t pay much attention at first and just figured it was a pressure cooker like the one my Mom bought in the 90’s but never used.  As the number of posts praising the Instant Pot in my news feed steadily rose, so did my curiosity.

So, I finally ordered my Instant Pot and it arrives today!  I can’t wait to try it out.  I bought the “Instant Pot Smart” model that has bluetooth connectivity to an app on your phone so you can write detailed cooking instructions that the appliance will follow (e.g. cook on high for 2 hours, then low for 6 hours, then warm).  You can even share any cooking instructions you write in the app (and we will be doing just that).

Instant Pot Features

I decided to go ahead and order one when I found out that it is MUCH MORE than a pressure cooker.  In fact, it is 7 different things in 1:

  1. Pressure cooker (2 different pressures)
  2. Slow cooker
  3. Rice cooker
  4. Yogurt Maker
  5. Steamer
  6. Sauté
  7. Warmer

So, I should be able to replace my rice cooker and my slow cooker (which needs to be replaced).  That was enough for me to give it a try.

Instant Pot Recipes

We’ve already started adding Instant Pot directions to our recipes!  We’ll begin adding scripts for the companion app (not required to use the recipes) as well.

    I received an Instant Pot for Christmas too! I’ve been fearful of using it so it has sat in my cupboard, but my husband broke it in the other night with boiled eggs for the week! He loves how the shells come off real easy. Heidi is very detailed in the Instant Pot instructions, so getting over my fear & I’m excited to try one of her recipes real soon! Red Beans & Rice will be first 🙂
