Admit it: You’ve been eyeing the Instant Pot. Better yet, right now the Instant Pot Duo, the number-one selling electric pressure cooker in the US, is on sale at Amazon for just $80. So why not get on board?
What makes the Instant Pot so special? Simply put, it’s seven kitchen appliances in one. It’s a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a steamer, and a sauté pan. It also makes yogurt and serves as a warming tray, which will come in handy for all upcoming parties.
In fact, the Instant Pot Duo should be a staple in every guy’s kitchen. It’s a lot like a slow cooker in concept: Put in the ingredients, then set it and forget it. But here’s the thing—it completes the cooking cycle in a fraction of the time. Cook a whole chicken, or whip up a batch of pulled pork or chili verde from a whole shoulder, in about 90 minutes. Overall it’s about 70 percent faster than a traditional slow cooker.
And its control panel is simple and so user-friendly, even the GEICO caveman could do it. It features 14 smart programs, so all you’ve got to do is prep your ingredients, dump them in the Instant Pot, and push the corresponding button: Soup, Meat/Stew, Bean/Chili, Poultry, Sauté/Simmer, Rice, Multigrain, Porridge, Steam, Slow Cook, Keep Warm, Yogurt, Manual, and Pressure Cook. Now, your favorite dishes are as easy as pressing a button.
Now, we may rarely have the desire to make our own yogurt or porridge, but it’s nice to know we can if we’d like to.
