How to Instant Pot

I admit, I’m pretty old school when it comes to kitchen appliances, but even I can see the charm of the Instant Pot.  It’s no wonder this modern appliance is a top favorite with home chefs! Whether you already own one or are contemplating a purchase this holiday season, How To Instant Pot: Mastering All the Functions of the One Pot that will change the Way You Cook is definitely the cookbook companion you need!  Workman Publishing sent me a copy to check out, and is partnering with me for a fun giveaway, too… read on!

How to Instant Pot

With holiday dinner prep coming up, I constantly wish I had more space, time and extra hands in the kitchen!  While I might not be able to get more people in to help in the kitchen, I can save space and time with an Instant Pot – this is the first thing I learned from How to Instant Pot.  This beautifully illustrated guide is chock full of easy-to-follow instructions, tips and recipes all designed to have you using your Instant Pot like a pro lickety-split!

You’ll learn all the basics including “How to speak Instant Pot” to best methods for cleaning your machine when the cooking is done.  Once you’ve mastered the basics, How to Instant Pot walks you through using your unit as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice maker, steamer and my favorite (because I really want to try this) how to use the Instant Pot as a Yogurt Maker.  I was double-thrilled to find a recipe for a Do-It-Yourself Ricotta, too.  This is high on my must-try-next recipes.

Do you own an Instant Pot or are you thinking of snagging one during the holiday sales?  Then How to Instant Pot is a book you’ll definitely want to add to your shopping list to ensure you enjoy all the features of your one-pot-wonder.  (The book will also make an excellent gift for friends and family who regularly rave about their new appliance!)
