When you buy a kitchen appliance, you want to be sure that it’s made from the best of materials. Sometimes an appliance can look nice, have all the right parts, but the materials that it’s made from turn out to be shoddy or unsafe. If you are concerned about unhealthy materials leeching out into your food, you’ll be happy to know that our Canadian friends have designed an outstanding pressure cooker that meets the highest safety standards.
The Instant Pot® 5-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker is designed to hold up well under every day use. One of the first things that stands out is that it has a genuine stainless steel inner cooking pot. Other electric pressure cookers use flimsy non-stick finishes, but there will be no concerns about non-stick finish flaking off and getting into your food with this pot. Stainless steel has a great reputation for being sturdy and a good heat conductor. This unit also includes a stainless steel steaming rack.
Most Instant Pot reviews give it high marks for being a very versatile cooker. In fact, it ranks among the best pressure cookers you can buy. Using the Instant Pot® 5-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker will save you up to 70% in cooking time and energy consumption. With electric bills going sky high, this is no small feat. In addition to that, you’ll barely know it’s working because it’s quiet as a mouse.
Okay, but how well does it prepare food? The Instant Pot is a multi-function cooker and it serves as a pressure cooker, steamer, rice cooker, slow cooker and food warmer. It has multiple pre-set cooking times for rice, beans/chili, soup, congee and meat/stew. So, as you can see, it’s perfect for making all sorts of comfort food. The one thing that it doesn’t do is brown meat. You’ll need to brown the meat in a separate pan before adding it to the pot for further cooking. But, this is a minor thing as most food prepared in the Instant Pot® 5-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker comes out with a deep, rich flavor that is very distinctive.
The Instant Pot is also very user friendly. The timer and labeling on the front are big and easy to see. There are three adjustable modes of operation which gives you lots of control over cooking times and situations. And, if you want safety, this cooker has 10 proven safety measures that are built in to protect you from any mishaps.
You will be hard pressed to find a more solid, better made, environmentally sound pressure cooker than this one. Just be prepared to wait a bit to receive it at your doorstep. It’s coming all the way from Canada, and well, our friends in the Great White North have their own mailing system. But, it will be well worth the wait.
