instant pot, pressure cooker

Instant Pot has got to be the most talked about small appliance out there. Do you have one yet?

I have to admit, I was intrigued. I read about it, watched YouTube videos, read tons of reviews, but I wasn’t sure if I was ready to get on board.

I have a slight problem with shopping. Whenever I have to return purchases that I made online, it’s almost impossible for me to make it out of the store without buying something else after I made the return. In fact, if I actually leave the store empty handed, I always text to inform family members (and others) that I left the store and bought nothing!! Last week I went to the Bay (Hudson’s Bay) with the intentions of returning two items and instead of leaving right away, I wandered around the store.

I went to the housewares department and I told myself that maybe I’ll look around and find something by Kate Spade for my daughter Tamara, but then I saw it. A huge display of Instant Pots! And they were on sale!! Another bonus is that I had a $20 special gift coupon from the Bay so, how could I not buy it?? It was beshert, which is a Jewish word that means ‘meant to be’!

So I made my way home, with my Instant Pot and very quickly sent a text to all about my new purchase. Be on the lookout for my  Instant Pot Recipes using this!

I know, I have many tools at my disposal in my kitchen so why did I add one more? For me, eating healthy isn’t the only way I maintain the weight I lost. I find that making new recipes, trying new products, changing things up and blogging about it, keeps me going! Besides, there are many benefits to this new appliance!

Here are 5 benefits of an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker

  1. It’s faster than traditional cooking and can reduce the time by 70%. It’s also energy efficient!
  2. It’s convenient and can do multi-operations like sauté, brown, cook rice, steam, make soups and stews, warm foods, slow cook, batch cooks oatmeal and steel cut oats easily, to name a few!
  3. Coming home late with no time to prepare dinner? With this you can plan meals because of the delayed cooking feature.
  4. You can make healthy and tasty meals easily and consistently. Whole grain and bean based meals are also a softer texture and taste better when using a pressure cooker.
  5. One pot clean up!

In the meantime, I would really love to hear from you and your experiences with Instant Pot!
