Instant Pot is a combination electric pressure cooker, saute machine, steamer and slow cooker developed by an AI computer wonk, Robert Wang. He was laid off from his job in Ottawa just as the financial crisis arrived on 2008. He developed the machine and with help from Amazon (but with no marketing budget) is now manufacturing them. Sales this year are approaching $300 million. It has become a cult item.
Two of our boys and their families presented us with one of the larger models and we have had fun putting it through its paces. Read the amazing story of this device which has broken through the negative perception of pressure cookers.
People like Melissa Clark, the prominent food writer on the New York Times, published cook books using it. We have always thought that pressure cookers produce more tender food with fresher taste. This device is guaranteed to improve your cooking results noticeably.
