It is 2 to 6 times faster than regular coking and uses up to70% less energy. Instant Pot is specifically designed for those who lead a fast-paced, health-oriented life style. It produces perfect, healthy and nutritious meals conveniently and at all times.

Pressure cooking is more than one-pot cooking. While you can cook an entire meal like your sauces and stews in it, a pressure cooker instant pot is also a great aid to daily cooking. For instance, you can pressure cook ribs and then transfer on the BBQ. They really help to safely speed up the cooking process. Most importantly, they help to cook foods faster with less energy while retaining more nutrients. Pressure cooking in your Instant Pot is really a great way to cook meat, stews, soups, rice, beans, potatoes, breakfasts, desserts, and just about anything else.

The Benefits Of Instant Pot

Here are a few benefits of using an instant pot pressure cooker:


It has 12 turn-key function keys to aid the most common cooking tasks. It has the benefit of delayed cooking for up to 24 hours so you can effectively plan your meals. It helps to reduce cooking time as well.

Cooks Healthy Nutritious And Tasty Meals

Pressure cooking is healthy cooking. With its extra speed and heat higher temperature cooking, it preserves natural nutrients and vitamins. Studies show that it preserves up to 90-95% of the vitamins in vegetables. Boiling helps to retain about 40-75%, while conventional steaming retains about 75-90%! The flavors and colors of foods are also retained, giving you the best that foods have to offer. The Instant Pot with its smart programming feature produces delicious healthy foods, every time.

Clean & Pleasant

The instant pot, as with all other pressure cookers, contains splatters effectively. So no more splatters on your stove top or spillovers in the oven. Additionally, it is totally quiet, and produces no steam, smells or excessive kitchen heat.

Fast And Easy

The Instant Pot cooks at a higher temperature than conventional cooking. Its use of more heat means more speed and faster cooking, reducing cooking time up to 70%. Simply push a few buttons and cook your entire meal in just a few steps. It is as easy as ABC!

Green Cooking and Energy Efficient

Save up to 70% of energy/ electricity by cooking in your Instant pot. Less heat and less time means this very high percentage of energy savings over other types of cooking.

Absolutely Safe And Dependable

The Instant Pot has 10 fool-proof safety protections. It’s so fool-proof that even if one fails, another will immediately take its place. Its safety features are so well built- in, the lid will not unlock if there is still some pressure in the cooker. They are absolutely safe and dependable.

Cooking Methods


The aim of braising meats and vegetables is to make them juicer and more tender. This cooking method uses low heat to break down the tough connective tissue in less expensive cuts of meat. Braising often starts by browning meat in a small amount of oil. Press the sauté function in your Instant pot to brown the meat in a small amount of heated oil. Cover the meat with a small amount of liquid and deglaze the pan. Add other ingredients, press the stew/ meat function and cook at a low temperature. The cooking environment in your instant pot significantly reduces the braising time needed. It takes only 45 to 60 minutes to braise a roast in the pressure cooker while it will take up to 3 hours to do the same in a stove or oven.


Deglazing is simply the process of removing excess fat or fragments that may be left in the pan. It involves heating the pan and adding some cooking liquid to enable you scrape up any browned bits that are stuck to the bottom. When you deglaze before adding other ingredients for your soups or sauce, it comes out with more color and flavor.


Sautéing involves cooking food quickly and lightly in a few spoons of oil, butter or fat. A sauté pan is brought to temperature over medium-high heat, and then thin or small pieces of food, such as onions and garlic, are quickly added and sautéed to bring out their delightful aroma. In your instant pot, you only need to press the sauté button and this will brown the surface of the food to increase its delicious flavors and aromas


In steaming, the steam from the cooking liquid is used to cook the food. Steaming usually starts when water is added to the pan, a rack or tray is also added and the food is then placed on top of this rack or tray. The water heats and the resulting steam heats the food. Steaming is perfect for vegetables, they become tender when steamed but still retain their nutrients and color

Pressure Cooking

Pressure cooking involves using the steam that is sealed in a pressure cooker, a special airtight cooking pot, to cook food. The sealed liquid such as broth, water or wine, traps the steam that rises from the liquid, raising the pressure inside the pressure cooker and the maximum temperature of the liquid. Consequently, the cooking process is quickened. Pressure cooking helps to retain moisture in foods, which results in more concentrated flavors. It also helps to retain more nutrients and vitamins in your food.

Rice Cooker

The Instant Pot’s rice cooker function is just great! Simply add the rice and water, secure the lid and press the button. 30 to 40 minutes later, you have a delicious and fluffy rice meal to enjoy. There is no need to bother about remembering to stir or to constantly check to prevent burning. You only need to remember this simple formula for cooking different types of rice:

For white rice, use 1 cup water per 1 cook rice.

For wild rice or brown rice, use 11/2 cups of water per 1 cup rice. For extra flavor, you could try using chicken or vegetable broth instead of water.

Slow Cooker

Slow cooking is a “set and forget” cooking method. Simply put something up the morning and by evening, you have a great meal waiting for you. Slow cooking is perfect for soups, stews and meats.

Three Methods Of Opening The Cooker

There are three methods or ways of opening your instant pot after every cooking.

Quick Release – this method releases pressure instantly. Simply press [Cancel] and then twist the steam release handle on the lid to the “Venting” position.

Natural Release – this method continues to cook the food using the heat and steam that is left in the cooker. Simply press [Cancel] and wait for the pressure to come down naturally and the lid to unlock. This usually takes about 20 minutes but if the cooker is very full, it could take more.

10-minute Natural Release – this method automatically takes the cooker to the “Keep Warm” mode and begins to count 10 minutes. Simply press [Cancel] and then twist the steam release handle on the lid to the “Venting” position.


Fruity Irish Oatmeal

For different flavors, you could try using other dried fruits such as cherries, prunes and dates. You can also add butter to this meal for extra flavor and to prevent the oatmeal from foaming. Note that foaming can clog the pressure release valve.

Fruity Irish Oatmeal can also be made the night before. Once cooled, place it in two microwave-safe containers, cover and chill overnight. The next morning, cover each container with a paper towel to prevent splatters and then heated until through.
