CHAPTER 1

 

A HEALTHY OBSESSION

 

 

Isn’t it great when your obsessions turn out to be good for you? That’s the case for those of us who are obsessed with the Instant Pot®. Even if you’re not consciously trying to cook healthier meals, chances are excellent that the Instant Pot® has been a good influence. For some beginning cooks, this beloved pressure cooker has inspired them to cook from scratch for the first time ever. And there’s no doubt that cooking from scratch—using fresh ingredients and having control over what goes into your dinner—is a very healthy habit to form. For more experienced cooks, the time savings from cooking under pressure means that healthier meals are a possibility even on busy weeknights.

 

HOW MANY IS TOO MANY?

While an Instant Pot® can’t cook everything, the range of things it can do keeps us plenty busy. Often, the most challenging limitation is having only one! You want to make yogurt, but that means the pot will be tied up for dinner. Or you’re making a main dish in the pot, and while you have a great side dish recipe for the pot, the timing doesn’t work to cook them simultaneously. Does this sound familiar? Oh, sure, you can often figure out a way to work it out. The Instant Pot® is great for braised dishes, which can be cooked ahead and reheated on the stove top while you’re using the Instant Pot® for rice or mashed potatoes. But when you can’t, you might find yourself wishing you had a second one. You’re not alone. Many die-hard Instant Pot® enthusiasts have two—and some are even considering a third. Some want to upgrade, buying either a larger size or a newer version with more features.

 

Instant Pot® Options

 

Currently, the Instant Pot® comes in three sizes (5 quarts, 6 quarts, and 8 quarts) and three models (LUX, DUO, and Smart). LUX. Available in 5-quart and 6-quart sizes, this pot has six cooking functions: pressure cooker, sauté/browning, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, and warmer. Those cooks who initially purchased the LUX may find that they want the additional features or the bigger size of the newer models. That doesn’t mean that the much-loved LUX model isn’t useful; it just depends on how your needs and interests change with continued IP use. DUO. Available in 5-quart, 6-quart, and 8-quart sizes, this pot has all the same cooking functions as the LUX, plus the addition of a yogurt setting. It also has two pressure levels, low and high, rather than just one. SMART. Available only in the 6-quart size, this is the newest model of the Instant Pot®. It is Bluetooth enabled, which means it can be programmed and monitored through a variety of apps for smartphones. Do you need, or even want, two pots? That depends on your cooking style, your kitchen space, the time you can dedicate to cooking, your budget, and your other kitchen appliances. If you have a slow cooker and you use it frequently, then it might take the place of a second Instant Pot®. If you have another pressure cooker (stove top or electric), it might stand in for a second pot. If not, a second Instant Pot® might be more tempting. Keep in mind that most dishes that can be cooked in an Instant Pot® can be made with traditional cooking methods. So if cooking time is not a consideration, then maybe it’s not for you. I know—as if anyone has unlimited time for cooking dinner! I get it. But if you can’t afford a second pot or don’t have room for it, don’t despair. Expand your obsession with the Instant Pot® to an obsession with cooking in general, and save your pennies. On the other hand, if you’re seriously considering a second (or third) pot, make your choice wisely. If you have a LUX, it’s well worth considering a DUO. Even if you think you’ll never make yogurt, having two pressure levels is a big plus. If your family is expanding, then consider a larger size for your second pot. You can use that for main dishes and use the older, smaller one for side dishes or desserts. The possibilities are endless.

BEYOND THE BASICS

Even for veteran Instant Pot® users, these handy appliances can hold some surprises. For instance, until I started thinking seriously about recipes for this cookbook, I had no idea I could make my favorite lemon curd in it. No more standing over the stove! Sure, you know it as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, and (possibly) yogurt maker. You might use it every day, or several times a day. But did you know about these functions? PROOF BREAD DOUGH. Use the yogurt function or the slow cooker on low for the perfect temperature in which to let dough rise. BAKE IN IT. Technically, you’re steaming, so don’t expect light, airy cakes or brown, crusty bread. But many quick breads and even yeast breads can be made in the Instant Pot®. Banana bread, anyone?
