Instant Pot

I’ve got bad news. All of your friends who won’t shut up about how great their Instant Pot is? They’re right: it really is a great kitchen gadget, and one that absolutely earns its cabinet space. It can turn rock-solid frozen chicken breasts into a passable dinner in under 30 minutes, is great for stews and pastas, and even makes really good rice without any hassle. Add in some optional accessories, and boy howdy, it can cook just about anything.

“But wait,” you scream, stamping your feet and blowing smoke out of your ears, “my kitchen already has too much crap in it! I don’t have space for a trendy appliance!” Buddy, I get it. But did you know that there’s also a small Instant Pot? At 3 quarts, it can only make half as much food as its full-sized siblings, but that’s still more than enough room if you’re cooking for one or two, or mostly using it for sides for a family meal. Plus, you probably already own a slow cooker, right? You can go ahead and donate that, because the Instant Pot has a slow cooker mode that renders your Crock-Pot entirely obsolete. Space issue: solved.
