Instant Pots have become extremely popular in the UK over the last few years. They are great for cutting down the cooking time of recipes and also save on the extra washing up. You can use them to make a variety of different things including yogurt, soups, a whole chicken, and even hard boil eggs.
Instant Pots have multiple functions such as slow cooking, pressure cooking, keeping food warm, sauteing, and cooking rice. All of these can be done by this one appliance.
The first Instant Pot was created in 2010 and has something of a cult following among home cooks. There are now many different models and sizes available for various requirements and kitchens. The newer models even include air fryers and WiFi connections.
As Instant Pots have so many different options and variety, their versatility can also be a little daunting. Picking up a cookbook or two can help inspire you to start using this nifty piece of kitchen equipment as most show you exactly how to use your Instant Pot and as well as providing you with plenty of suitable Instant Pot recipes too.
