Why you should invest in an Instant Pot

With the New Year approaching, it'll soon be time to make those healthy eating resolutions. If pushing for a healthier lifestyle is on your list, the Instant Pot will undoubtedly help you stick to it. A slew of easy and nutritious recipes will be at your fingertips—minus a sink full of dirty dishes.

The biggest standout is the easy meal-prep the pot provides. Instead of reaching for sugary cereals or your third bagel of the week for breakfast, you can cook steel-cut oats in a fraction of the time a stovetop would demand. With a rice maker setting to whip up a speedy vat of brown rice or quinoa, and another function to effortlessly steam up veggies to go with it, packing a healthy lunch will suddenly be simpler than Seamlessing a massive sub or deceivingly unhealthy salad.

And the Instant Pot concocts hearty dinners in a jiffy, too! You can cook protein on the slow-cooker setting and let the pot work its magic. The best part is that cooking with an Instant Pot requires minimal attention and allows you to whip up a whole meal in one pot—with plenty of space to cook enough for leftovers. Even if you already own the handy kitchen gadget, consider gifting it to the new home cook on your list. Plus, they'll never know that you scored such a great deal on it!
