Dear friends and family, I am so excited to announce the marriage of two of our favorite subjects here on Kitchn: Ree Drummond and the Instant Pot. Yes, you read that correctly. Food Network's The Pioneer Woman just released her own Instant Pot exclusively for Walmart, and it's a blue floral wonderland.

Ree Drummond's Instant Pot can be found at Walmart stores and online starting this weekend. Although, according to the website, the Instant Pots are going to start shipping next week on September 20. Like the classic IP we've grown to love (and obsess over), Ree's Instant Pot is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, and rice cooker, and it can sauté, steam, and warm. It's a magic pot with a new design!
The two design options for Ree's signature Instant Pots are a summation of her all-time favorite things: "breezy blossoms" and "vintage florals." They are essentially an appliance version of Ree's iconic tunics.
Considering the fact that everything else in Ree's exclusive Walmart line is swathed in whimsical, swirly buds, the gadget's busy floral design is not surprising in the slightest. We are going to make a sweeping, grand statement and say that this is the most joyful-looking Instant Pot we've ever seen — especially since the only other Instant Pot on the market is a utilitarian stainless steel.
If you're wondering whether or not your favorite Instant Pot chicken recipe will taste even better if it's made in Ree's device, I think the obvious answer would be: duh. How could something covered in flowers not make things taste like rainbows and sunshine? Obviously we'll need to test this theory out.
Until then, I'm waiting for Ree to take on the Vitamix.
