If you are one of the millions of people who have started using an Electric Pressure Cooker like the Instant Pot or Ninja Foodie you are already enjoying more free time right before dinner. I have one and absolutely LOVE mine. If you have not purchased one or are just nervous about the whole pressure-cooking appliance maybe I can help ease your mind.

The Electric Pressure Cooker is a great addition to your kitchen arsenal. This one device can cut down on your meal prep by hours, yes that’s right hours. The beauty of this appliance is that it does use pressure so the temperature inside gets much hotter than a slow cooker, which allows food to cook faster and even cook from frozen in less than an hour. This appliance is a multicooker you can pressure cook food, sauté, slow cook, and even rice cooker. You can make your own yogurt and hard boil eggs. This appliance is a working parents dream, no more fretting over forgetting to thaw something out to make for dinner

I will admit when you first pull it out of the box it looks intimidating. I had to really use this appliance to learn how to operate all of the functions. One really nice thing about the Electric Pressure Cooker is that it is safe, it has a built-in safety shut off that prevents any exploding from happening. You can prepare your one-pot meal set the timer and walk away. Your recipes will be done in about 30 min and taste like you have been cooking them all day.

To help learn about your Electric Pressure Cooker I will be offering a live Zoom session on May 27th at 12:00 p.m. We will look at the electric pressure cooker and walk through all of the functions. Please call Mary Morris 252-482-6585 or email: mary_morris@ncsu.edu for questions.
