Instant Pots are more popular than ever these days. You can make entire meals and even snacks from your Instant Pot. There’s much less mess and even less clean up. There are so many accessories for your Instant Pot out there, so how do you know what you really need? We couldn’t live without our Instant Pot here in Autismland or these accessories.
Which Instant Pot To Pick?
First, let’s talk about which Instant Pot you should pick. I have 3 at my disposal. Two of the 6 quart size and an 8 quart. I don’t have a 3 quart because it doesn’t fit the size of my family. If you were single or a couple then it would be a good fit. You can easily put a small dish in bigger pot but not a bigger dish in a smaller pot is my motto.
