I’ve been hesitant about this whole Instant Pot fad. What makes it so special? I already have a crock pot, isn’t it the same thing? And I can always just cook rice on the stovetop. Not to mention, where on earth would I store this thing in my tiny kitchen??
When the boyfriend’s sister sweetly gifted us the Instant Pot for Christmas, it brought an end to my questioning. It was officially time to give it a go.
It arrived on my doorstep with more warning labels than fireworks and my first thought was how long it would take until I blew up my apartment trying to use it. This was followed by an hour of reading the intense manual.
