This handy kitchen gadget has seven functions: rice cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt maker, and warmer! It also has over 80,000 five-star reviews. Want to read just one? My BuzzFeed coworker wrote all about the Instant Pot – dig in!
Promising review: "It took a little effort to learn how to use this appliance, but once I got the hang of it, I fell in love with it! I have made steel cut oats in four minutes, rice in six minutes, a baked potato in twelves minutes, I even made my own pumpkin puree in 13 minutes. There are delicious soups, stews, and even cheesecakes that can be made in this little gem of a time saver! I found out about this from a friend who raved about hers. I just went through breast cancer treatment and also work two jobs, so this was a total lifesaver for me, as my time and energy are so limited. I am so happy to have this. I highly recommend it. Once you get comfortable with using it, you won't be disappointed!" —Patricia A. Faussett
