The Hottest Gift of 2017: The Instant Pot

Instant Pot Books

Posted on January 17, 2018 - 3:00pm

Many of us either gifted an Instant Pot to a family member of friend, or had one on our wish list. What exactly is an instant pot? It is a 6-8 quart multi-cooking machine that can steam, sauté, roast, pressure cook, and pretty much do everything all in one pot in half the time it would take to use a crockpot or your stove. Make homemade yogurt? Instant Pot it. Soup from scratch? Instant Pot it. BBQ ribs? Instant Pot it. Want to make a hearty meal for your family, but only have 30 minutes? Instant Pot it. The Marion Public Library has all the cooking ideas you need, with many of the newest cook books around for Instant Pots, including cookbooks for Paleo cooks, vegetarian cooks, and those who like a more gourmet twist on their meals. Check out the wide range of cookbooks we have in the 641 Non-fiction section at the Marion Public Library, or our fantastic eResource the Culinary Arts Collection, or search our catalog for “instant pot,” and start creating with your Instant Pot!
