Instant Pot Multi Cooker – What is it and what are the main functions?

Instant Pot Multi-Cookers offer up to 10 different cooking functions. From pressure cooking to slow cooking, sautéing, steaming, cooking foolproof rice, making yoghurt and more – it’s like having multiple kitchen gadgets but in one pot. Declutter your kitchen and swap out numerous appliances on your countertop with an Instant Pot. It really is revolutionary for busy households.

Pressure Cooking

Among its features, pressure cooking is a real winner for those who are often pressed for time. Did you know pressure cooking can slash cooking times by up to 70% compared to other traditional methods? Pressure cooking works by the process of cooking food under high-pressure steam, which increases cooking temperatures and speeds up cooking. Think about risotto, usually taking around 30 minutes – with an Instant Pot, it’s done in just 6 minutes. See the recipe below!
