As if the Instant Pot didn’t already make it super easy (and fun!) to get dinner on the table, there’s something new coming out that will make it all even easier. Williams Sonoma has created the first-ever line of food designed exclusively with Instant Pot.

The line? An assortment of bottles — featuring dried spices and other ingredients — that can be used as starters when you cook. They include almost everything you need to make the dish. In most cases, you just add liquid and follow the directions.

The two teams researched the most popular and best-reviewed recipes made in the Instant Pot and built the line around what they found. To start (ha!), there are five Starters in the line.

  • Tortilla Soup Starter
  • Tuscan Lentil Soup Starter
  • Pumpkin Chili Starter
  • Lemon & Saffron Risotto Starter
  • Italian Herb Quinoa Starter

Each bottle makes four to six servings and has directions right on the package (“Pressure cooks in 9 minutes!”), so you know exactly what other ingredients you need and what steps you need to take.

Go shopping at Williams Sonoma.

If you’re wondering what’s in the bottles, well, that depends on the bottle. The Tuscan Lentil Soup Starter, for example, has a blend of brown lentils (of course), vegetables, garlic, and spices. The Lemon & Saffron Risotto Starter has Arborio rice, saffron, citrus, shallots, and spices.

Prices range from $13 to $15 and the Starters will start (again!) hitting Williams Sonoma stores in the next two weeks.
