Move Over Crock-Pot: Meet the New Instant Pot Moms Are Freaking Over (PHOTOS)

Instant PotWhat if one single appliance could do the work of seven? While it might sound too good to be true, Instant Pot, a gadget that serves as your slow cooker, pressure cooker, steamer/warmer, yogurt maker, rice cooker, and sauté pan, is winning the hearts of moms everywhere!  


Fans of fast and flexible cooking have fallen in love with the multi-tasking machine that eliminates the need for piles of pots and pans. Home cooks with limited space are bound to want to check it out!  

If you don't already have one and you favor a "set it and forget it" style of cooking, you'll have to get this on your holiday wish list asap. Imagine preparing family dinners and only having one pot to clean? Sounds like any mother's dream!

Want to see what the fuss is about? Let's take a look at some of the meals that have been prepared in this all-purpose appliance.

My afternoon snack: Pears with Granola and Honey I made it in my pressure cooker, but you could bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Cut pear in half and scoop out the seeds. In a bowl mix some granola with a little cinnamon, coconut palm sugar, and 1/2 tsp vanilla paste. Top the pears with the mixture and sprinkle on a little more cinnamon and coconut palm sugar. Fill pot with 2 cups water. Place pears on trivet and drizzle with a little honey. Cook on high for 7 minutes with QR. You could use natural release or cook a minute or two longer if you like your pears softer. Mine cut easily with a fork at 7 minutes. :) #pears #cooking #eatreal #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fitfoodporn #fitfood #cleaneating #clean #wellnesszone #weightlossmotivation #wellness #losetheweight #healthychoices #healthyliving #healthy #cookinglight #bakedpears #fruitsandveggies #fruit #fitmom #getfit #pressurecooking #pressurecooker #instantpot #blastthefat #fitmom
