Maybe you, like me, got one of these Instant Pot things for a present? (Thanks, Dad!) I have a weakness for small appliances....and cookbooks. So I took home ALL the cookbooks for the Instant Pot and tested them out so you don't have to. This one has turned out to be my favorite. I'm a fan of this author and his publisher anyway, so the fact that it beat out all the rest is no surprise. It beat out the "official" cookbook by a mile for ease of use, deliciousness of recipes, variety, layout, and photography. It's not particularly "chefy", but that's not what I was looking for in a general cookbook for this appliance. For "chefy", try Dinner In An Instant by Melissa Clark.— From Kelly
Master the revolutionary appliance that is changing the way we cook
The only Instant Pot cookbook that is organized by function, How to Instant Pot is both a guide to understanding the Instant Pot basics and a foodie's creative collection of over 100 recipes specially crafted to take advantage of the Instant Pot's many virtues, from cooking perfect risotto in six minutes, no stirring required, to five kinds of yogurt, to creating one-hour killer chili and soups from scratch, using dried beans.
Here's how to make incredible hands-off meals like Ziti and Italian Sausage, Maple-Mustard Pork Shoulder, and Korean-Style Short Ribs, plus plenty of sides, breakfasts, and desserts. In addition to a set of recipes for each function and master recipes with three variations each, there are surprising shortcuts--basics like quick pickles, perfect hard-boiled eggs, and a 30-minute "baked" potato. It's the essential purchase for every instant pot owner.
