What Kind of Pressure Cooker Do I Need?

There are a lot of different types of pressure cookers & multicookers on the market with Instant Pot being the most popular. When people ask what type to get, I recommend the basic 6qt Instant Pot which is large enough for most things you’ll want to make, but it’s a relatively affordable model. There are other brands on the marketplace that work similarly to an Instant Pot, but just be sure to check the size when trying these recipes. Sometimes a different size might make too large a serving for your pressure cooker if you have a smaller type. It’s always a good idea to reference your manual before making any of these recipes.

What Can I Make in My Instant Pot?

This list is a great example of the variety of recipes you can make with a pressure cooker! From popcorn to banana bread, this appliance can do just about anything! I love it for things like lentil soup or wild rice soup which would otherwise take a long time to cook on the stove. But don’t stop there! There are so many ways to use your pressure cooker!
