Princess Scooterpie – A Motorbike Diva who likes to moto wander & write about it.: I’m in love with my Immediate Pot

I’ve by no means normally been one for fancy devices, except it was a farkle for my bike.  I do not usually get enthusiastic about home equipment, however look forward to it – I AM IN LOVE WITH MY INSTANT POT.

What’s an Immediate Pot you say?  It’s a multi perform cooker, it’s mainly an electrical strain cooker.  It’ll perform as a strain cooker, gradual cooker, rice maker, steamer, and yogurt maker.  This gadget is gaining a cult-like following, a number of folks I do know have them and have been raving about them for months!  It cuts down the cooking time considerably, which is nice for somebody like me who is continually busy doing stuff  or on bike adventures, instructing, or simply plain busy.  Often I neglect to tug out stuff for supper and on these nights it is normally a free-for-all at could home and I typically give-up or give-in and we succumb to consuming sandwiches or spaghetti or over cooked hen as a result of I nuked it to demise to thaw it. 

I’ve been considering getting one, however determined I might float the concept as a possible Christmas current.  So now that is the place it will get bizarre, I’ve  been looking to seek out one of the best value and in my expertise I’ve discovered all the nice gross sales on electronics and small home equipment occur in October.  I noticed the 8 quart Immediate Pot on sale at our native Canadian Tire, and it was a very good sale!  So I discussed it to hubby and daughter.  Then I known as hubby a few instances and sniveled and pleaded my case (he’s getting fairly bored with listening to concerning the Immediate Pot).  So all I might do is hope! 

He was engaged on Saturday all day and as I used to be slogging via making one other abysmal supper him and Scooterpie Jr got here into the kitchen and mentioned “Fake it is Christmas.”, after I circled there was the Immediate Pot!  Properly I really whooped and did just a little completely satisfied dance.  I’m so excited! 

On Sunday I made a decision to offer this loopy factor a go, learn all of the directions, and set it up! I used to be going to be adventuresome and check out a pot roast with potatoes and carrots.  (I have to admit to being just a little overwhelmed and feeling a little trepidation, as a result of my granny blew an quaint strain cooker via her ceiling)  Ultimately my pot roast was fabulous and as a substitute of taking near 2-2 1/2  hours and lots of pots used, the precise cooking time for the roast was 50 minutes and 10 minutes for the veggies.  It normally takes a couple of minutes to vent the strain cooker so all in all I might say 70 minutes.  The roast was tender, veggies cooked and it was yummy.

I appreciated cooking in it a lot I made a decision to attempt some metal minimize oats, they had been superb!  I’m so enthusiastic about my kitchen Farkle!
