For great meals and to save time in the kitchen, one of the best purchases that you can make is a pressure cooker. You'll want to choose a top quality one like the Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker.
Using less energy, you can have delicious food cooked and ready in double to triple the amount of time savings that it takes to make it using other means. Not only that, but using a pressure cooker is one of the healthiest ways that you can make food.
You get to use it for its basic function, which is as a pressure cooker. It can also take the place of your crockpot and cook foods in the same way and it can make perfect rice every time when you use it as a rice cooker.
You can sautÈ your favorite foods with this pressure cooker. You can even make yogurt. And if you want to keep food warm, you can use it for that function, too. It does have a timer that you can set for up to 24 hours if you need to set it to cook for a later time.
The cooker comes already programmed with 14 different settings to make cooking food quick and easy. You can make everything from side foods to appetizers to main dishes.
All you have to do is put the items in, hit the button and you're on the way to having the food you want when you want it. There's very little that you can't cook in this pot.
You can even make frozen vegetables in just a couple of minutes. And forget how long it takes to peel and make potatoes on the stove. With this pressure cooker, you can have potatoes ready to go from the pot to the table in fifteen minutes.
Since not all foods cook the same way – even in the same family of foods – the pot has 3 modes that you can adjust to suit the food preparation guidelines you have.
Plus, there are different control temperatures that you can use for when you want to sautÈ. You can choose to either simmer, brown or thicken foods. Since it has a stainless steel bottom, you don't have to worry about foods sticking.
Some features about this pressure cooker that consumers really rave about are that the pot doesn't rattle like some can. When steam builds up in some pressure cookers, it can make the lid rattle up and down.
You won't have that problem with this one and it doesn't have that annoying or dangerous steam leak. There won't be a food odor and though the pot cooks the food rapidly, it doesn't make the area surrounding it get hot like regular pots that perform the same function tend to do.
The pressure cooker has a microprocessor that checks both the temperature and the pressure so that it can change how low or how high the temperature needs to be while the food is cooking.
It's loaded with safety features – including a pressure regulator, a safety lid lock, an excess pressure protector and a vent that doesn't allow food to keep the steam from venting. On top of that, the pot has a fuse that will shut down the power if the pot gets too hot.
