Using your Instant Pot for Dinner

I think when we all first got our Instant Pots we were a little intimidated, to say the least. Fears of blowing up the kitchen, or even the house, would play again and again in our heads. Those horrific scenes were definitely fueled by the stove top pressure cookers of the past. The electric pressure cookers of today have all the bells and whistles to prevent this from happening. So do your water test and get started using that Instant Pot today (if you haven’t already).
