We don’t hear many bad things about the Instant Pot. Our staffers love it. Our readers love it. It’s basically the Tom Hanks of cooking appliances — people have only nice things to say about it!

If we had to call out one thing to nitpick about it, it’d maybe be that the sizes — a six- and eight-quart option — are just a little too large for a household of one. If you live alone, you probably aren’t getting to experience the magic of the Instant Pot because you just don’t need to make a vat of potato risotto.

Allow us to introduce you to the newish three-quart Instant Pot!

Buy It!

It does all the fun (and helpful) things the larger Instant Pots can do — cook rice, pressure cook, slow cook, steam, sauté, make yogurt, and warm stuff — it’s just adorably smaller.

It cooks up to 12 cups of rice, which is still probably a lot of rice for one person (unless you’re very hungry for rice!), and is the ideal size for a small dinner or side dish, or even for traveling (bring it on a boat, in a camper, or to a hotel!). The buttons and settings have been simplified, too, which is never a bad idea.

Now if only they’d come out with one in Millennial Pink — then we’d really have no complaints!
