Before we get started with the Keto meal plans and recipes, it is important for you to understand how different cooking appliances can help you. There are a lot of different options available in the market from different types of blenders to weird kitchen gadget. But not all of them are useful. In this blog post, I’ll be going over some of my favorite kitchen appliances that are a must-have for everyone who loves cooking.
#1 Instant Pot
An instant pot is an appliance that can perform 7 different types of functions. Whether you need a slow cooker, steamer or a pressure cooker – everything can be done in an instant pot. It not only makes cooking easier and fun, but it can also save a lot of time.
How to Use the Instant Pot?
Instant pot makes cooking easier than it ever was. It is a multi-cooker that has the lid lock, safety valves, control box, and inner pot. It can perform more functions than a simple electric pressure cooker.
Here is an easy step by step processes to use the instant pot:
- Familiarize yourself with different parts of the instant pot such as a power cord, condensation collector, lid, accessories, base unit, and inner pot.
- Do a water test so to know how your instant pot builds pressure. Simply add 2 cups water to the pot, close the lid, select the cooking button and set the cooking time, and notice the whole process.
- Release the pressure. It can be done automatically or manually. If you do nothing, the pot will release its pressure by itself but its pressure can also be released manually.
Keep in mind that before using an instant pot, first, you need to make sure that you’ve set the correct pressure level and the amount of time.
