If it were a perfect world, we would have enough time, money, and energy to whip up a gourmet five-course meal to be enjoyed by candlelight. Unfortunately, the reality is that we often barely have time to even sneak in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. If we're not rushing to get the kiddos to school then we're rushing to a work meeting, all while trying our best to not let the house fall apart in between. This is precisely why our Instant Pots are true blessings in our hectic lives. 


Since an Instant Pot is basically a pressure cooker, Crock Pot, rice cooker, steamer, and more in just one appliance, the meal possibilities are pretty much endless. Instant Pots can help us put together breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Is anyone else crying tears of joy?

Plus, since home-cooked meals are literally the click of a button away, then we're bound to also save money. As we all know, eating at home rather than at restaurants is more economically friendly -- and healthier too! We know exactly what's going in our delicious meal. 

So do Instant Pots count as a win-win-win then? We vote yes. 

For some Instant Pot recipe inspiration, here are 50 recipes to always keep in our repertoires. We've got recipes for vegans, vegetarians, and meat-lovers alike!
