I caved on Amazon Prime day and bought an Instant Pot! To prepare myself, I’ve enlisted the help of my fellow colleagues to get some inspiration on what to whip up!
What’s the deal with the Instant Pot?
If this question’s been on your mind too, fret no more because this post is for you!
You see…. I’ve been on the fence for months about purchasing an Instant Pot because I strongly felt my slow cooker did it all.
Sure, I’d gifted people the Instant Pot, knowing darn well it was something that could surely benefit any kitchen. But, as a self proclaimed minimalist (aka I HATE it when there’s an excess of appliances and stuff around), I couldn’t press BUY NOW for myself.
Well, then Amazon Prime day happened and it was on super sale; then my colleagues kept posting these amazing recipes using their Instant Pot’s; and then I realized I soon was going to be strapped for time with a newborn at home.
Thus, I finally caved and bought the Instant Pot!
