With three kids, and a full time job, I’m constantly looking for the fastest ways to get dinner on the table. And, now, when you throw sports into the mix, I need it even faster than the fastest. I need it in an instant.
Enter the Instant Pot.
Honestly, as I type this, I wish I was given this pot for free and then asked to review it. I was not. I paid full, Prime Day, price for it. But, it’ll be worth it. I hope. My pot got delivered (along with 215,000 other lucky Prime Day shoppers) 4 days ago and I still haven’t used it.
So, if you’re as intimidated as I was after you received your Prime Day Instant Pot, don’t worry, I’ve created a handy guide:
10 Easy Steps to Start Using the Instant Pot
Step One: Remove the Instant Pot from the outer shipping box.
Step Two: Start having buyer’s remorse. Am I ever going to use this dumb thing?
Step Three: Join the Instant Pot Community on Facebook. <– you’re welcome Instant Pot for the link.
Step Four: Spend hours scrolling through the recipes on the IPC on FB.
Step Five: Remove buyer’s remorse. This pot is awesome. 83,204 members keep telling you so on FB.
Step Six: Promise yourself you will make a meal using the Instant Pot. Just as soon as you go to the grocery store.
Step Seven: Go to the grocery store.
Step Eight: Hide the Instant Pot Community on Facebook. It’s taking up too much time and making you feel guilty about not using your Instant Pot.
Step Nine: Text your sister and ask her how to do the water test. I hear this is the real first step.
Step Ten: Unhide FB group and put the kids to bed. Tell yourself you’ll do the water test tomorrow. Just as soon as you get home from work and find the perfect recipe on the IPC FB page.
