Instant Pot will not only save you time, it has multiple functions including sterilizing at the touch of a button and allows everyone to cook healthy and nutritious meals for the whole family quickly and easily.
Instant Pot simplifies the joys of home cooking, promotes healthy lifestyles and gives you more time with the people you love.
What is Pressure Cooking & What Makes Instant Pot Different?
Pressure Cooking cooks food using water or other cooking liquid in a cooker with an airtight, sealed lid. Boiled liquid creates steam to create internal pressure. Temperature rises quickly to cook food fast. Steam is released prior to opening lid.
With Instant Pot you can cook with or without pressure!
The Instant Pot electric pressure cookers can achieve optimal cooking results every time due to advanced microprocessor technology. The embedded microprocessor facilitates the use of Smart Programs, a set of extensively tested, pre-programmed cooking instructions. Based on the type of food being cooked, Smart Programs adjust and control all four cooking parameters: heating intensity, temperature, pressure and duration.
Retain Vitamins & Nutrients
Boiling (as well as regular steaming) can cause water-soluble vitamins to leech out of food, diminishing their nutritional value. Pressure cookers cook food quickly, deeply and evenly, and may allow foods to retain up to 90% of those water-soluble vitamins.
Preserve Appearance and Taste
Cooking in open containers (yes, even ones with a lid) exposes food to oxygen and heat, which can lead to dulled colours and diminished flavour. Pressure cooking saturates food with steam, allowing the retention of bright colours and phytochemicals. Similarly, the airtight design enables flavours to develop faster.
Eliminate Harmful Microorganisms By creating an environment that permits water to boil at higher than 100°C (212°F), pressure cookers are exceptional in their multi-faceted ability to effectively destroy harmful bacteria.
Use it as a sterilization tool for jars or baby bottles, or for treating water.
Instant Pot features pre-set Smart Programs for common pressure-cooking tasks:
- Meat & Stew
- Beans & Chili
- Slow Cook
- Keep warm
The Instant Pot can also delay cooking by up to 24 hours, allowing you to plan meals ahead of time.
Long-term delay is useful for foods that do not require refrigeration, like potatoes, beans, and rice.
Short-term delay, less than 2 hours, is helpful when preparing meals. For instance, pre-programing your main course frees up your time as you don’t have to be in the kitchen to produce a healthy, tasty meal!
Because Instant Pot can reduce cooking times by up to 70%, it also works wonders to get dinner on the table in a hurry.
Pressure cookers cook evenly and deeply, and thanks to the advanced technology of the embedded microprocessor, cooking cycles are precisely controlled to prepare delicious meals consistently.
Meals are sealed into an airtight environment for cooking, so vitamins, nutrients, flavours and aromas remain trapped inside the ingredients. This allows flavours to develop quickly and with greater depth than when using other cooking methods.
Tender and Tasty
Instant Pot really flexes its muscle when cooking tougher cuts of meat. Pressure cooking allows tough proteins and intramuscular fats to break down quickly, resulting in tender, fall-off-the-bone meat. Moreover, pressure cooked beans and legumes are firm yet supple, and don’t need to be soaked before cooking.
The Instant Pot’s intelligent programming ensures cooking is consistent regardless of the volume of food. Whether you want to cook one or a dozen eggs, the cooking duration won’t change.
Instant Pot electric pressure cookers are eco-friendly!
Compared to cooking with other appliances, such as roasting in an oven or boiling/steaming on a stovetop, Instant Pot saves up to 70% energy.
- Pressure cookers reach temperatures above boiling, and the higher the temperature, the faster the food will cook. Less cooking time means less energy consumed, and the Instant Pot can reduce cooking time by 70%.
- Pressure cooking requires less water than other cooking methods— 75% less water is used when steaming in an Instant Pot. This reduces energy consumption in making a meal.
- The cooker base is fully insulated with two layers of air pockets between the inner pot and the brushed stainless-steel exterior, so although the internal temperature will be higher than boiling, the cooker base is safe to touch, even during long cooking processes.
- The Instant Pot’s unparalleled insulation pairs perfectly with its intelligent monitoring system to prevent wasteful energy consumption. The cooker only heats the inner pot to maintain a certain pressure level, so it does not need to constantly exert energy in maintaining heat.
