Though I was a late adopter, my Instant Pots have become indispensable. I now have 3: a 3-quart Plus Mini, a 6-quart Duo Plus, and an 8-quart Duo Nova…and I use them all. Frequently. I recently began cooking fish – both frozen and fresh – and the IP, to my delight, once again proves its value.Continue reading “Eat This: Instant Pot Fish”
Nearly a year ago, I posted my thoughts about whether or not I really needed another small kitchen appliance – specifically, an Instant Pot. I held off for many months, but finally bought one. And, now, I wonder why I waited so long.
We’ve survived another “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday.”..those post-Thanksgiving events where retailers incite the masses into an insensate buying frenzy. I’ve already groused about disliking “Prime Day” for using similar techniques, but I do have items that I idly watch (in my cart) to see if they’re offered at a can’t-pass-it-up price. Finally, one was: an Instant Pot®. It was a “Deal of the Day” for $69.99 (regularly $139.95 on Amazon).
My trusty Breville toaster oven finally gave up the ghost, so I have a new toaster oven, an Oster® Digital French Door Oven. It’s not what you probably think of as a “toaster oven”, and it does a lot more than just make toast. Called a “countertop oven”, when you see it in person, you understand why: it’s roomy enough to bake large pizzas or whole chickens in. So why buy an extra-large toaster oven? Because most of what we bake could actually be done in an oven this size, rather than our full-size oven.
