Ahhh… the Instant Pot.
Enjoyed by many, yet still an undiscovered wonder to many more.
Remember when the Keurig coffee maker started to show up on store shelves? Early adopters proudly shouted their undying love for the almight K-Cup while everyone else held their traditional coffeemakers a little closer. This reminds me a lot of the current sentiment for the Instant Pot. Did you know that “Instant Pot” is actually the brand name and not the item name? The company named Instant Pot makes a pretty sweet multi-function cooker. One of the main functions is a pressure cooker and then, depending on the model, the other functions range from slow cooker to yogurt maker, and a whole bunch of other things in between.
We got our Instant Pot about two years ago and I remember feeling hesitant to even open the box. I was so intimidated by this machine! No worries though, after a few days of hemming and hawing, I ripped the box open and we started cooking up some super easy pressure cooker meals. Our love for this machine was pretty instantaneous. We liked that it cooked full meals that taste like a traditional slow cooker meal, but in a fraction of the time. We can get full pot roast meals on the table in just under an hour, where in the past this meal would cook for half the day in the slow cooker. It makes for quick and easy meals, even if you forgot to defrost your pork chops or if you ran out of time that morning to dump ingredients in the slow cooker.
So, you’re probably on this post because you either:
a) already own an Instant Pot
b) are planning to buy or receive an Instant Pot
c) are intrigued about the buzz surrounding the Instant Pot cooker but still don’t really understand what the heck it is
Hopefully we answered letter C in the paragraph about it. For everyone else, YAY! You either own or are about to own an Instant Pot multi-function cooker!
The Instant Pot is a standalone appliance and is ready to use for a variety of cooking chores right out of the box. However, because most things in life are fun to accessorize, we rounded up some of our very favorite Instant Pot accessories for you!
