I am loving my new kitchen gadget – the Instant pot pressure cooker – and have posted about it a few times on Facebook. It is finally time to give it proper due on my blog: the pressure cooker! Yes I love my Instant Pot and I just did a VIDEO TUTORIAL showing you how to use a pressure cooker yourself!
Why use a Pressure Cooker vs. a Slow Cooker?
I actually touch on this in my video but for me it is all about nutrients and flavor. I find the flavor is lost in slow cooking and everything tastes muddled, greasy and bland. Not my idea of a great meal. I have always preferred to use my own dutch oven and to braise on my stove top or in my oven but busy moms can’t always do this, right?! I finally bit the bullet and invested in a pressure cooker and am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. I can make so many things in one day. I push a button and forget it! And it tastes just like I made in my old school dutch oven!
What about those nutrients and the question of whether pressure cooking is healthy for us or not? I like this post which explains how pressure cooking works and why it is a great option. Plus you can’t beat being able to pop in a frozen roast and forget about it until dinner!

Where can you grab the one I use? Here is the pressure cooker I use and love! This one is digital. The stove top type scares me! But this one is a snap…very much like the slow cookers you know and love.
