Last year, I picked up a “new-to-me” kitchen appliance — the Instant Pot. I’d been thinking about using a pressure cooker since I met a couple who was traveling around the world in their sailboat. They said that pressure cookers had come a long way from the days of our grandmothers’ pots clanging away on the stovetop. They told me that the Instant Pot was perfect for their sailboat, as it cooked food quickly and used little energy.
While researching the device for this blog post, I learned that 300,000 Instant Pots were sold during a 36-hour period on Amazon Prime Day! Norton Wang, inventor of the Instant Pot, said he plans to have a “pot in every kitchen,” and it looks like he’s well on his way to success.
However, Wang now has lots of competition. Once the success of the Instant Pot was apparent, other manufacturers got into the game. Also known as multi-cookers, all of these cooking devices are much more than a simple pressure cooker. They have multiple features, from sautéing, steaming, slow cooking to pressure cooking. Some models even have an air fryer in the lid! So, before you pick up one of these beauties, do your research to find the perfect one for you.
