Instant Pot Cooking Times 

Sharing is caring!

 Instant Pot cooking times

  • 7 appliances in 1: pressure cooker, sauté pan, steamer, slow cooker, rice cooker, food warmer, and yogurt maker.
  • 6 Quart is the perfect size for feeding up to 6 people (There’s also 3 qt., 8 qt. & 10 qt. models, too!)
  • The easy-seal lid automatically seals your Instant Pot for pressure cooking and releases steam with a simple, safe push of the quick-release button.
  • 10+ safety features and timed cooking programs let you “set it and forget it,” freeing you to do other things while the Duo Nova cooks your dinner safely and quickly, with minimal mess and easy cleanup.
  • One-touch Smart Program settings let you start cooking instantly. Just press a button for soup, broth, beans, chili, poultry, slow cooking, sautéing, rice, multigrain, porridge, steaming, yogurt, pressure cooking, or keeping warm.

Cooking times

Cooking times are so rarely talked about in the meal planning niche, yet there’s so much angst at dinner time around how long it will take to cook a delicious meal!

Shorter cooking times (without compromising the mouth-watering flavors) are among the biggest benefits of Instant Pot cooking.

But somewhere along the way, we lost sight of sharing how easy Instant Pot cooking is. How you can make magical meals in minutes – without the pre-steps of meal planning and no meal freezing even needed!

 

I wish everyone knew how easy Instant Pot cooking is for busy households – one-pot… straight to plate!

If you’re serious about saving time, money and eating well with high-quality meals that don’t require stewing over a hot pot all day. Stay ’til the end of this post to print out my Instant Pot Cooking Times chart.
