I had the pleasure of testing the new Instant Pot 6 Quart Pressure Cooker Model DUO60. I’ve never had or used a pressure cooker before, so I was a little intimidated by the entire process. I was anxious to try this because it looks like a huge time saver in the kitchen. Most days I’m at my computer working on the blog, so this product would be such a blessing for me when trying to prepare a meal for my family each day.
The Instant Pot DUO60 is the latest model in a series of pressure cookers from this manufacturer. After reading about the previous models, it seems this one is far superior and getting excellent reviews from cooks all across the USA. The DUO60 is a 7-in-1 product (pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté/browning pot, yogurt maker, steamer and warmer), so you can clear all these products from your counter and just leave your Instant Pot to do all these jobs. This product can even pasteurize milk!
Since I was a total pressure cooker newbie, I wanted to make something relatively simple from the cookbook (included with the Instant Pot). I chose a dessert, crème brûlée (my favorite), to try the Instant Pot for the first time. I enlisted the help of my son since I have terrible ADD and it is difficult for me to learn from a book or instruction manual. That being said, there are many great video tutorials on the Instant Pot website that will help any novice get the hang of pressure cooking with the Instant Pot DUO60. There are also some amazing cooking videos as well, so be sure to check them out.
Here is a video of the entire process from start to finish with my first attempt at using the Instant Pot DUO60!
I have to tell you, it was much easier than I thought it would be to use the Instant Pot DUO60. This product would be the most amazing gift anyone on your list could receive this year, a real timesaver for any working Mom or Dad (or anyone who would love to put a home cooked meal on the table for their family but doesn’t have time prepare one). Just think of the money you would save using the Instant Pot DUO60 vs. buying take out food each night. Not to mention the health benefits of cooking your own food vs. take out food. We all know that most take out food products are unhealthy, laced with hidden ingredients and lots of fat. With the Instant Pot DUO60, you will know exactly what ingredients are in your food and feel good about serving it to your family each night. You can make breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks all with one amazing product – the Instant Pot DUO60.
