Instant Pots are all the rage right now, but many of us don’t know much about them beyond the fact that they use pressure to cook food quickly.

As it turns out, these bad boys are quite versatile, from simple one ingredient recipes to gourmet dinners and desserts, you’ve got major cooking power behind you. And, unlike the crockpot, which requires an early start and plenty of forethought, the Instant Pot really does work fast to help you finish a meal in a hurry.
