For busy households, using an Instant Pot can be a total life saver. Not only do they make cooking simple and fast, clean up is much easier too! With the use of fragrant spices and herbs from around the globe, dinner need not ever be boring. And keep in mind, leftovers often taste better the next day, allowing flavors to meld – perfect for easy delicious lunches!
(And if you are on the fence about getting an Instant Pot- here’s my honest opinion: I’m not a gadget person. If it were just me, or my husband and I, honestly, I probably would not get one. I don’t mind cooking slow! But for busy families, where both parents work or have very short amounts of time, they are an incredible tool in the kitchen, with a multitude of uses. My friends with kids swear by them! I recently bought one for a friend who had a baby and was told it was a total game changer. A great gift! )
