Looking for a quick meal you can get on the table in under 30-40 minutes? The answer – Instant Pot.
An Instant Pit is a multi-cooker, it’s like seven different appliances all in one! It does the job of a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker and much more.
An Instant Pot can cook anything from roasts to chicken to desserts to breakfast and lots more.
You can plate your food in much less time than most other cooking appliances.
Instant Pot Features
The specific functions of your Instant Pot will vary based on which model you purchase, but these are the basic programs that will be present in most models:
- Slow cooker
- Pressure cooker
- Rice cooker
- Yogurt maker
The Instant Pot has plenty of onboard safety features as well.
For example, a host of sensors help it self-regulate internal pressure and temperature. They’re designed to ensure that the Instant Pot operates within preset safety limits.
Sensors also detect whether the lid is locked or not. And unless the cover is firmly clamped down, the Instant Pot won’t build up pressure.
Likewise, once the cooker’s interior becomes pressurized, the lid automatically locks in place.
Option To Customize or Use Default
There are numerous preprogrammed or default settings tailored to the type of food it cooks.
The Pressure cooker gives you the option to Customize by cooking on high or low pressure and choosing the time you want.
Or you can choose default options for pressure cooking. Such as for beef, chicken, eggs, cheesecake, sanitizing, bread, soup, beans, pasta, brown and white rice.
When using the default option, you first choose the type of food to be cooked. Next, choose to cook low or high. The time is set to default (though you do have the option to change the time).
Cook Time & Clean-Up
Here at Cook Plate & Fork we love our Instant Pot for lots of reasons. It’s safe, it cooks slow-cooker recipes fast and it’s a snap to clean.
And that is one of Instant Pot’s best quality, besides fast cook times, is its simple cleanup.
First of all, there’s just one pot to worry about.
Secondly, as long as you know the right methods, the inner pot is painless to wash by hand.
In addition, the pot and the cooker’s various parts are dishwasher-safe.
The Instant Pot also speeds up ordinary cooking times by a factor of 3. Now that’s fast.
Instant Pot may be a safety-wise pressure cooker, but you still need to operate your appliance properly and with care.
