This 7-In-1 Home Cooker Will Make You A Cooking Queen

by BUST Magazine

Though I live for soup, I don’t like waiting for stuff to simmer. But now, the wait is over, thanks to The Instant Pot IP-DUO60 ($99.99, target.com), a gadget that’s been all over the internet, and for good reason. This 7-in-1 appliance (pressure/slow/rice cooker, steamer, sauté/browner, yogurt maker, and warmer) is a game changer. It has multiple presets — including one for soup — and there are a ton of recipes online to help newbies get used to this new cooking gizmo. Toss in spaghetti sauce ingredients and pressure-cook those babies into a marinara in 10 minutes; make French onion soup from scratch in 20; prepare pork chops in 15. The best part? Thanks to the steamer function, cleaning it with a bit of water is a snap — the gunk just rinses off, no scrubbing. All my lazy ladies, put your hands up!
