An entree of chili or Irish stew can be done within an hour without you watching over it.
The 7-in-1 appliance is not only a pressure cooker, but also a slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté pan, steamer, yogurt maker, and stockpot warmer. The programmed adjustable cooking modes, with up to 24 hours of delayed cooking, and automatic keep warm for up to 10 hours. Most traditional, modern, and international recipes can easily be adapted for Instant Pot. Users can access cooking tips, recipes, share ideas and obtain the latest news on Instant Pot in the active online community.
Elegant, durable design with dependable, consistent cooking results
The Instant Pot’s design makes it easy to clean and use for both left-handed and right-handed users. The stainless steel inner pot and lid are both dishwasher safe, while the cooker base can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth.
When the cooker is in operation, its microprocessor monitors the pressure and temperature, keeps time, adjusts heating intensity and duration, and even adjusts cooking time based on the volume of food in the cooker. Pressure cooking recipe booklet and suggested cooking time tables are included.

Editor: If you’re considering buying an Instant Pot and wonder what you can fix in it, here are 15 scrumptious recipes from Delish to drool (or at least ponder) over.
Hi Mary- we are new rv’ers. We do have an instant pot and are very interested in some new recipes to use while travelling. Thanks
Sue and Tony
I’m interested! We plan to go full time this fall so I bought an Instant Pot and have been learning to use it. It’s wonderful! So far I have roasted a chicken, made a pot roast, hard-cooked eggs (their shells fall off so easily!) and baked two delicious cakes! I want to learn more!
Although we’re very new to RV living, my goal is to convince my husband to sell our house and become fulltimers, dividing our time between Fort Worth, TX, where family lives, and Park Rapids, MN, where I grew up. I recognized early on that the only way I can convince him is to be able to cook the same meals I do in our kitchen in the house. I had no idea how I was going to accomplish that in our tiny RV galley until I discovered the Instant Pot. There are thousands of IP-specific recipes online, as well as guides for converting ordinary recipes for pressure cooking. There are Pinterest boards devoted to Instant Pot cooking and Facebook groups full of devotees. I would be happy to share some recipes we love if anyone would be interested.
