Here it is, people. After a year of getting over our Instant Pot fear, we are officially superfans of the Instant Pot! If you’ve never heard of an Instant Pot, it is a new age pressure cooker. It is your all-in-one appliance that can saute, slow cook, quick cook, and everything in between.

She went over all the reasons she had an Instant Pot, so I thought we’d share why YOU need an Instant Pot.
