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”
Even though I was late to the pressure cooking party, once I acquired my first Instant Pot, I was hooked: I started with a 6 quart this year and recently bought an 8 quart (and almost bought a 10 quart until reason prevailed). With two pressure cookers, you might think that we are pretty well set, but as luck would have it, we were recently gifted another 6 quart Instant Pot!
While I have certain “go to” items I cook regularly, like potatoes, beets, and various soups, I’m always looking to branch out and add new dishes to my repertoire. Since the Instant Pot cooks rice well, why not quinoa?
I like to try things that push me out of my comfort zone. Why? Because I think that life is about discovery, and what better way to make discoveries than to do something very different? I’ve also learned (by keeping an open mind) that food, in particular, may not taste the way you expect – in fact, it may turn out to be much, much better!
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).
