Why Cooks Have Fallen In Love With The Instant Pot

Modern life has become more and more stressful. Increasingly both individuals and couples with kids seem to find themselves up against the clock. If it does not work pressures, then it is the demands of family - or an effort to at least try and create some work/life balance. One of the places that can eat up vast amounts of time and effort is the kitchen. This is especially true if one is trying to create delicious, nutritious and healthy meals. The alternative is to fall into the trip of the fast food and takeout lifestyle, a lifestyle that increasing numbers of people are rejecting. There is also the pressure to make the most out of the kitchen space - especially where people are downsizing on their living spaces. But what if there was a kitchen appliance that could cut down on clutter and help the home chef make meals that fulfill every requirement - from delicious variety and an approach that frees them up to simply relax?

The good news is that there is - the Instant Pot. This kitchen appliance has taken not only the United States - but the world by storm - but is the hype justified?

This is a phenomenon that is only gathering steam.

So why is the Instant Pot outselling the traditional pressure cooker. For one thing, there is the fear factor.
