Even if you’re cooking multiple dishes at one time, you can cook and keep one of the meals warm in the Instapot. Smaller Instapots are even more handy since they perform all the functions a plus sized Instapot does and take up even less counter and stove space. 

3. Batch Cooking

If you have a work schedule which doesn’t allow you to stay home most days, then batch cooking is the answer for you. Instapot lets you prepare meals for the entire week in advance. You don’t have to do a lot of thinking everyday and plan the whole week in advance. You can prepare beans, chicken stock, rice, soups and meat in advance. This way you get to save loads of time on your hands and energy as well.

Winters call for lots of soup and what’s better than homemade soup? Instapot lets you prepare soup with the convenience you could only dream of. Its soup setting controls the temperature and consistency, allowing you to adjust the pressure setting as per your liking.

Keeping up with the fast paced routine, using a slow cooker to prepare your meals definitely takes up more time, energy and effort. It doesn’t heat up as quickly as the Instapot and also traps in moisture which may make the gravy watery. Although it is great with recipes that can be cooked overnight, but Instapot definitely helps you prepare meals in half an hour. With its saute function you won’t need to constantly look over it and sear it manually.
