Instant Pot Cheat Sheet
Growing up, did your mother love her pressure cooker? I remember how much my mother insisted I had a pressure cooking added to my wedding registry. You know what, in the 10 years of ownership, I used it twice. I was terrified every time I used it too. Then came the Instant Pot changing the pressure cooker experience for us all!
Make Life easier with America’s beloved Instant Pot, the programmable pressure & multi cooker. This kitchen appliance speeds up cooking time exponentially using up to 70% less energy.
Is Instant Pot Worth It?

However, with the Instant Pot, you can still get that savory, slow cook taste in 5 to 30 minutes! If you are someone who prefers 30 minute (or less) meal preps in the evening, this programmable pressure & multi cooker is your solution!
Instant Pot Sizes
First let’s talk Instant Pot Sizes. For me, this is actually really important. We are a family of seven (with four hungry boys and two pre-teens), so a Instant Pot Ultra Mini is going to be terrible for my family. Instant Pot comes in three sizes so it’s really important to discover which Instant Pot is best for my family.
What Size Instant Pot Do I Need?
Help! Which Instant Pot is right for me? Figuring out which cooker works best for your family can be tricky and the Instant Pot website is actually very helpful.
