When we don’t feel like doing too much in the kitchen -and, specially when we just can’t be bothered cleaning up too much after cooking-, the best route to take is one that takes the less amount of cookware as possible. No need to be using more than one pot; and no better pot for that kind of cooking than an instant pot. Today, we’ll be talking about one of our favorite instant pots; the Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1.

Whether you’re a big fan of 1-pot recipes or stuff like stews and soup-- an instant pot can really come in handy. In fact, if you don’t already have one, we’re telling you right now you will like it so much that you’ll end up using this baby at the very least once a week.

So, let’s talk about what the Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 can help you do in the kitchen.

Ladies and gentlemen: the Instant Pot Duo!

Functions

Pressure Cooker

Works much like a pressure cooker, only it’s automated and there’s basically zero risk of any accidents happening.

Rice Cooker

Can be programmed for cooking just rice. If you don’t know how to cook rice, or have trouble cooking it without burning it, this will save your ass. Even more so if you eat rice regularly!

Steamer

Has a steaming function for low-heat, sustained steam for steaming vegetables, dumplings, or anything of the sort. Works like a charm.

Sautéeing

High heat for stir frying, sautéeing. Comes in very handy when a recipe needs small quantities of sautéed garlic, onion, bell peppers, etc.

Yogurt Maker

You can even make yogurt in this thing. This function basically keeps the inside of the pot at the exact ideal temperature for yogurt fermentation.

Advantages of owning an Instant Pot

If you’re anything like us, there’s nothing to lose by getting one of these. Getting into the Keto diet is a commitment also to learning how to cook all different sorts of things, and a lot of us lack the hardware to cook things that are out of the norm. And getting said hardware can cost literally hundreds of dollars; an instant pot, however, is way more practical and costs way less.

So, for one, you're saving money and space. What else?

You’ll also be more willing to try new dishes. Just because you have the means, you’ll be more willing to try different cuisines that you wouldn’t otherwise because it would take too much work or would require something that you lacked, like a steamer or a pressure cooker.

Lastly, the best advantage of an Instant Pot is that you have an app that lets you discover recipes that are tailored specifically to the Instant pot that you have. Isn’t that amazing?

And with that, we leave you with what we think is a strong case for getting the Instant Pot Duo. It’s definitely a personal choice, but we strongly recommend all our readers to get one: it will save you money in the long run and make your life easier.
