Do you use an Instant Pot for cooking in your RV?

Instant Pot became all the rage in kitchens across the country, even the world, a few years ago. Do you use an Instant Pot in your RV?

If you don’t know what an Instant Pot is, or why you might want one, check out this article. And, surprisingly, we have quite a few Instant Pot recipes all over our website. There are these super yummy meatballs, and this spicy chicken curry soup. There’s also french onion soup, too, and there’s even Instant Pot Jambalaya!

Do you use an Instant Pot to cook? If so, do you like it? Tell us in the comments below the poll, please. Thanks!

Oh, and if you’re interested in buying an Instant Pot for yourself, check out all these options.

I would not want to waste my precious electricity by using my instapot. We boondock and only use solar to replenish our batteries. Propane is cheap and efficient so we use that for all of our cooking.

Instant Pots are one of our main tools at home (we have three and they all get used every week, usually multiple times). However, in the 17′ travel trailer, we seldom have power, and no generator, so we only take one on select trips. We’re taking one next week, when we’ll have FHU and it will be corn season. I often take it for Thanksgiving, sometimes two, when we meet friends, usually at a SP campground. Great for steam reheating roast turkey, cooking sweet potatoes, etc.
They are a good option for us.

I’ve never even seen one let alone used one, but after clicking on the link above I ended up buying one. I often make ‘all in one’ meals for myself in a pan so this seems like an obvious answer.

I voted “yes, often” though I technically own an electric pressure cooker multifunction cooking appliance, Instapot is a brand name like Kleenex & mine are different brands. I have an eight qt at the house and a six qt in the trailer. Love these things in that anything you cook in them is done in a fraction of the time and only one dish to wash! Perfect for RVing.

The main reason we bought the first Instant Pot was because our two stove top PCs needed new safety parts. So happy to have the IPs instead, we use them so much more than we ever did the stove top models.

There is no better way to hard boil eggs or boil potatoes. You can do a potato salad in about 30 minutes, with eggs and potatoes in the IP. Also so quick for a soup or stew on a busy day.

No, we don’t have an Instant Pot, we use a Ninja Foodie Pressure cooker air fryer. We do a lot of our meals in it when it’s extremely hot and it cooks up fast. One of the few best things we have.

We have three Instapots at home of various sizes and applications. Occasionally the smallest might be packed for a trip. At home one of the pots is used almost daily for something.

never heard of an instant pot so it would seem to follow that we don’t have one.

They’re great you can cook a whole meal in it in 15-25 minutes, it’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, soup pot all in one. DW loves hers.

We use ours in FL for winter potluck dinners. Not the same crowd summer camping in Northern NY.

I use my Insta pot almost every day. I have the air fryer top for the Insta pot as well. One appliance, two tops. I use the Insta pot for almost every recipe. Don’t know what I would do without it.

I’ve used mine three times this week! I use it outside and wouldn’t be without it.
