It's been a long week. It's finally Friday, and it's the last hour of the standard work week, which means you're probably catching up with your coworkers, tidying up your desk, and daydreaming about the weekend ahead. You might think the best part of your week has already arrived, but you'd be wrong. So wrong. Because your day is about to get better.
Buy: Ultra 6-Quart Instant Pot, $120
If you've been waiting for the right moment to buy an Instant Pot, it has finally arrived. You know pressure cooking will save you time in the kitchen, but this 10-in-one appliance will also help you save some space by replacing appliances! In addition to pressure cooking, you can also slow cook, sauté, steam, and warm all manner of meals. But it doesn't stop there! It can also cook rice and eggs, make yogurt, bake you a cake, and sterilize jars for canning — all with the turn of a dial.
Why Should You Buy One?
We're no strangers to the cult appeal of this game-changing device. You can go from frozen — yes, frozen — chicken to cooked chicken curry in a flash, cook a pot of beans from dried in a hurry, and even make a silky hands-off risotto in a fraction of the time of the original.
