Instant Pot Accessories

Instant Pot Accessories

Getting an Instant Pot leads many people down the road to the poorhouse from buying countless Instant Pot accessories! Think of it like buying shoes to go with different outfits, or tools for your car or shop. There are oodles of accessories out there now. Some are awesome, others not […]

Instant Pot Sous Vide Steak

Sous Vide Steak In The Instant Pot

The BEST steak I’ve ever had was Sous Vide Steak from my Instant Pot Ultra. This is no lie, my friend. Of course, you don’t need an Instant Pot to cook Sous Vide Steak. A Sous Vide circulator is actually the optimal tool for the job. But the Ultra and […]

Instant Pot Chili

Instant Pot Chili is one of my favorite dishes, especially for meal prepping, and it’s super easy to make. There are tons of recipes out there to make chili in your Instant Pot, including ones where you make the chili with dried beans, ones from canned beans, with no beans, […]

Instant Pot Yogurt (Cold Start)

Instant Pot Yogurt (Cold Start Method)

Instant Pot yogurt came as a complete revelation to me. I am NOT a yogurt kinda guy. I’ve had it before, of course, but never cared much for the various commercial brands that are out there. Instant Pot yogurt, using the “cold start” method, however, was a game changer. It’s […]

Instant Pot Popcorn

But it was incredibly difficult to stay away from that addictive sugariness. Until now. We were introduced to the SodaStream […]

Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker

Mr. Coffee 3-Quart Iced Tea and Coffee Maker

The Mr. Coffee 3-Quart Iced Tea and Coffee Maker is one of the (many) workhorse appliances in our kitchen. We’ve never used it for iced coffee, but for tea it’s a snap. Iced (or just cold) tea is our mainstay casual drink, and this iced tea maker can make as […]

Lodge Cast Iron Skillet

Lodge Cast Iron Skillet

If I could only have two “appliances” to cook with, one would definitely by my Instant Pot. The other would have to be my Cast Iron Skillet by Lodge. A cast iron skillet is one of the most versatile pieces of cookware you can own. Those made by Lodge are […]

Heat Resistant Gloves

Heat Resistant Gloves

One of THE best investments you can make in the kitchen is a good pair of heat resistant gloves. THEY WORK. And they’ll keep you from getting burned (unless you’re a complete nincompoop). I tossed my old oven mitts away after I got a pair of these things. After using […]
