If you’re a busy family there are a few tricks we all pull out in order to have our meals on time and relatively healthy. We don’t want to spend our time eating fast food and watching our bank account drain while our waist line expands. And we really don’t want our kids to grow up eating foods that are not healthy. It’s best for them to have the foundation of eating well — yes, even when you’re super busy. That’s why loads of families are looking to tools like the crock-pot or the Instant Pot to help make meals that fit our schedules.
The Instant Pot is the best of both worlds: you have a slow cooker, which allows you to set your food and have it ready in the morning. But it’s also a pressure cooker, which means you can cook meals in near-zero time that would normally take way too long to make. It first came on the scene in 2008 and have become an instant (lol) hit with parents and others who lead busy lives.
What makes this so great is it’s a 7-in-one kitchen appliance so you’re getting to use it as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, sauté pan, steamer, and food warmer. Meaning it does pretty much everything and you don’t need 7 different appliances bogging down your cupboards.
