Why would you buy the Instant Pot Lux
The Instant Pot Lux 60 V3 6-in-1 Programmable Electric Pressure Cooker has 6 functions to make your cooking experience quicker, easier and more variable. The pressure cooker, for example can speed up your cooking up to 6 times quicker than normal, we can all benefit from anything that can speed up our daily meal preparation. You can cook meat, stew, soup and broth at the touch of a button, but you can also adjust the timer if you feel it needs longer or even less time.
There is a saute button so you can brown your meat or vegetables before you pressure cook or slow cook and there is 3 temperature options. On some pressure cookers this isn’t adjustable and can burn the food.
If you want to slow cook instead of pressure cook you have that option, with 3 temperature settings, so you can get rid of your slow cooker which is taking up kitchen space and use this instead.
How about a rice cooker? The measuring cup is part of the accessories, so you can get your measure correct for perfect rice.
Steaming your fish, chicken or vegetables is quick and easy, the steam tray is included, it’s the best way to keep the nutrients in.
No matter which way you cook in your Instant Pot Lux it will automatically keep warm after the cooking time is over, although you can turn this off if its not required. You also have a delay timer up to 24hrs so you can have a meal ready for when you come in from work.
With the latest version V3, you can even cook eggs or bake a cake, how amazing is that.
There is a 6L stainless steel, inner pot, so no problems with scratching off a non stick lining and with 10 safety features and a very quiet cooking process, this is a very nice addition to your kitchen.
