The “Instant Pot” is a wildly-popular multi-function cooker. I purchased the 8-quart “Duo” model yesterday afternoon, and last night, I cheerfully cooked my first meal in the gadget: a beef roast, as described in the little recipe book that came with the pot. Although the recipe was terrible, the texture of the pressure-cooked meat was at least acceptable. I’ll experiment with the pot over the next few weeks, and report back to you. Meantime, if you’re already riding the Instant Pot train, please post a comment below. Has the appliance been a game-changer for you?
Pictured above is a close-up of the cooker’s many functions. In time, I plan to try all of ’em!
P.S. I bought my 8 quart model at Kohl’s for $135. The 6-quart version costs less than $100 at Amazon.
P.P.S. The “pressure cook” button is the same as the “manual” button on older Instant Pot models.
