Six reasons I'm crazy about my Instant Pot!
BY CHRISTINE CROSBY

R

emember when your
mom or grandmom had
a pressure cooker? I was
freaked out watching my mom's
gyrations with her pressure
cooker back in the 'olden' days.
Between the steam, the hissing, and the warnings to stand
back, I never considered having
one in my life...until a month
ago when my darling daughter
came for a visit and brought me
an Instant Pot.
Unless you've been stranded
on an island the last year, cut
off from all communication,
you've probably heard about
the Instant Pot. This device
does it all-and really freakin'
fast. It's like a pressure cooker
and a crockpot on steroids,
while still being simple to use.
My "new best friend" cooks
meat, chicken, and dried beans
at lightning speed; it moonlights as a yogurt maker and
a rice cooker. (If it did laundry,
I'd marry it!) The manufacturers probably should've named
it the Only Pot instead of the
Instant Pot.
