Instant Pot Recipes

How Does an Instant Pot Work

While you can do many different things with your Instant Pot such as brown meat, steam, make yogurt, use it as a rice cooker and more, the main function is to utilize it as an electric pressure cooker.

How does it cook your food? It cooks the food under pressure. This is why you always have to have at least one cup of water in the Instant Pot. It heats the water to a boil of 248 degrees Fahrenheit which cooks the good very very fast.

I want you to remember anything that can be cooked in the slow cooker, on the oven or on the stove top can be cooked in your pressure cooker simply by adjusting the cook times.
