You can even use an Instant Pot as a skillet, vegetable steamer or rice cooker. The Instant Pot Smart WiFi combines eight devices in one – including a slow cooker, steamer and more – and is an especially good device for home cooks of all skill levels.
The Instant Pot is compatible with Alexa via Wi-Fi, allowing you to control it with simple voice commands. You can also manage what you cook with the Instant Pot mobile apps for iOS and Android, which is packed with over 1000 recipes and allows you to monitor cooking progress and receive alerts while you are away from home (or, okay, just chilling on the couch).
In addition to the stove, you will also receive accessories such as the rice paddle, stainless steel steam rack, measuring cup and condensation collector. The Instant Pot itself also has built-in programs for cooking specific foods, including ribs, soups, desserts, rice, poultry, and more. The inner pan is also dishwasher safe, which we love, making it easy to clean.
