And now, here we are, doing a side by side comparison of the two appliances as well as a microwave steamer. Part of me hopes I can prove that my trusty Black & Decker model has superior steaming qualities (which means I get to buy a new one), but part of me is excited to think about having a little extra space in my cupboard if it turns out my Instant Pot can not only pressure cook like a boss, but also serve as a fully capable steamer
For most people, one of the primary struggles of eating healthier is that cooking can be such a chore sometimes. Rather than spend time over the stove or the oven crafting the perfect recipe, it’s so much easier to go out to eat or order in.
Honesty check - does your Instant Pot shine just like it came out of the box, because, well, it’s still sitting in the box? Are you afraid to pull the trigger on trying your new appliance?
