The Instant Pot really is as easy as advertised. Drop all the foodstuff in and in as little as 15 minutes (depending on what you’re making) you have a tasty and tender dinner, or food to meal prep with for the rest of the week. The one complaint I have with my own 3-quart Instant Pot is that it’s a little on the small size, which is why this 8-quart Instant Pot Lux multicooker on sale for just $55 (down from $80) for today only is so appealing.
If you don’t know by now, the Instant Pot exploded on the kitchen scene a few years back as multi-function workhorse, including a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker warmer, steamer, and more. Unlike a normal pressure cooker or slow cooker, it has a saute function, too, so you can give your meats an initial seer to lock the juices and flavor in before closing the top to finish the job.
And, I know every kitchen product claims that “cleanup is a snap” but with Instant Pot it’s true. There’s really just one pot to clean, so take it from me; one of the world’s least prolific dish-washers.
