Instant Pot Hot Spot

Instant Pot Index

In 2014, I pre-ordered the first run of Instant Pot DUO, and a new era began in my kitchen. At the time, oddly enough, I was just shopping for an appliance to sterilize substrate for growing my own oyster mushrooms (that’s a story for another day…) but I quickly realized that this multi-talented multi-cooker had a lot more to offer.

I’m a registered dietitian, culinary nutritionist, and designated Food Captain of my household. I believe that cooking is an essential practice for anyone who wants to eat foods that are optimally health-promoting, sustainably/ethically produced, affordable, and enjoyable. Since inviting this pressure cooker into my kitchen, I have come to rely on its glorious set-it-and-forget-it convenience for many of my whole-foods home-cooking needs.

I now consider Instant Pot a loyal sidekick in my kitchen adventures, and I made this page to serve as the home base for sharing all of those antics with you. Here you can find my user review, my Instant Pot Pinterest board, my picks for the handiest tools and books, and – of course – all of my favorite recipes! Scroll down to browse and enjoy!
