Busy Moms Can Save Time and Money with the Instant Pot

We all know there’s a ton of hype surrounding the Instant Pot, but does that hype really hold up? Yes! In fact, the Instant Pot not only makes delicious meals, but it says you time and money. In other words, busy moms are definitely going to want an Instant Pot in their home. Imagine being able to make a full meal (including dessert) in less than an hour!

Electric pressure cookers give families the ability to enjoy home cooked meals without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. This means you can feed your family something healthy and delicious each and every night. Best of all, you won’t break the bank doing it!

Let’s take a closer look at how the Instant Pot can save time and money!

Cook Cheaper Cuts of Meat

Are you intimidated by all the different cuts of meat your grocery store has to offer? Don’t be. There are so many cheap cuts that can be made into a delicious meal with the correct cooking techniques. For example, you can cook down beef neck bones to make a delicious beef stew. Chuck roasts are another great option. These are perfect for a Sunday roast or to make into barbecue sandwiches. If in doubt, ask your butcher which cuts of meat are affordable and will cook best in a pressure cooker.

Skip the Drive-Thru on Busy Nights

We’re all guilty of hitting the drive-thru on busy nights, but how much money does this cost? Truth be told, those value meals can really add up. Not only are you eating lots of fat, calories, and sodium, but you’re also paying more than you realize. Think about how much is costs your family for one trip and then multiple that by the number of times per week you eat out. Now multiple that by fifty-two. Chances are you’ll be surprised at just how much money it can cost you.

Prepare a Full Meal in Less Time Than Pizza Delivery

Imagine putting a full meal on the table in less time than it takes to order and receive delivery pizza. That’s what the Instant Pot does. It makes it so quick to put a meal on the table. You can do barbecued chicken legs in less than 15 minutes. Pair that with some greens that cooked in 8 minutes and you’ve got a delicious dinner that took less than 30 minutes. Can you really use time as an excuse anymore?

Make Roasts and Vegetables in a Matter of Minutes

Do you love a good beef roast with vegetables? Who doesn’t! What you may not love is cooking it for hours and hours and hours. Did you know that you can make a roast and vegetables in the Instant Pot in 60 to 80 minutes? Think about that! In less time than it takes to wash and dry a load of laundry, you can make a Sunday dinner for your family in the middle of the week. Why would you continue to serve frozen dinners that take just as much time?

Chances are the money you save eating at home will allow you to quickly make your money back on the purchase. Plus, your family is going to love the homemade meals, soups, and desserts.

  1. I’ve fancied having an instant pot for quite a while now, however now I’ve read about the Vortex Plus and the Omni Plus, an instant pot with a lid so you can air fry too and it’s all getting rather confusing as far as I’m concerned, I just can’t work out what would be the most use to me. I do like the idea of having a rotisserie basket, which in one of them too. Decisions, decisions.
