WONDERING WHY INSTANT POT ?
If you are the one like me thinking why instantpot when I have a pressure cooker? Here are a few reasons I justified myself before owning one instant pot a year back.
Here are the below reasons “why should you buy insta pot when I have a pressure cooker”:
- The first and top most reason is it has a base made of stainless steel.Which has really impressed me.It been more than 3 years im staying away from nonstick utensils.I have been substituting with cast iron or stainless steel.Lodge is my favourite cast iron brand and i recommend it anytime.
- Delay timer – I can just load my insta pot and go for a shopping or even early breakfast is ready without any interventions. Which is very safe I do this almost all weekends. My family can have healthy homemade food.
- Zero monitoring – Every day when I put my toddler to nap, I can spend time with my baby telling stories whereas instantpot takes care of my cooking and also no whistling noise like a pressure cooker which helps my baby to sleep.
- Less Mess- It is one pot I need to clean. I feel the saute function is just brilliant find in the insta pot. Sometimes when we do Indian cooking on the stovetop the mustard seeds will crackle and spread everywhere, in turn, will create a lot of mess. Its also dishwasher safe.
- Slow cooking – When I want to make some desserts I can vouch for you how complicated recipes can be made in a breeze. You can find a few listed below.
- Rice – Can you believe the rice is ready in 3 minutes? Yes, I was amazed how beautifully it’s cooked in 3 minutes.
- You can do multi cooking from soups ,porridge,yogurt,idli batter fermentation,desserts,saute,sprouts,steaming vegetables etc.
- You can even warm your food.
