    Instant pot

    Check it out at

    Unquestionably the most trendy kitchen gadget of 2018, the instant pot is truly an amazingly versatile appliance to have. Why is the instant pot so popular? Ah, where to start…

    First off, the instant pot is multiple appliances in one:

    • Electric pressure cooker
    • Slow cooker
    • Rice cooker
    • Yogurt maker

    Secondly, it’s designed to be used in a “set it and forget it” type of way. Just hit the button or set the time, then let it work its magic.

    On top of all that, it slashes cooking time and has more consistent results that using other cooking appliances or methods. Over 25,000 people loved it enough to give it positive reviews on Amazon can’t be wrong!
