I love using my IP to make speedy one-pot penne pasta. It’s also super handy around the holidays when the oven is busy roasting turkey and veggies; I can simply make my cranberry sauce and stuffing in the instant pot!

Pressure cookers are also great for making seasoned black beans or lentils for taco night and for making vegetarian fare such as soups, veggie chili, and rice dishes.

In fact I haven’t made stovetop rice in years – the Instant Pot acts like a handy dandy rice cooker with perfect results every time. Love it so!
