What is the Instant Pot
Why Buy an Instant Pot for your Kitchen
On the flip side, here are three reasons why you don’t want the Instant Pot in your life.
- If you cook mostly vegetarian food. Cooking in a pan with a lid will do the same job as an Instant Pot, as far as veggies are concerned. Unless you cook a lot of legumes then consider point nbr 2 above.
- Technology is not your friend. There is a steep learning curve especially if you’ve never used a pressure cooker. The manual and the recipe book that come with it aren’t as comprehensive as I would have liked. I have learnt more just playing around with settings and ingredients. And from the Facebook groups.
- You just don’t have counter space. The IP will end up sitting on the counter somewhat close to your hood if not right under it. So don’t buy it if you will end up putting it away in the basement.
So here it is. The reality behind the hype, and if you’ve been doing your research then you’ve seen there is a lot of hype. There are Facebook communities and recipe forums out there to help get you started but they will also overwhelm. So take your time and play with it and make it work for you and your family life and routine. That’s after you have it in your kitchen.
