Instant Pot


With the NFL playoffs and the superbowl around the corner, you might be wondering what to prepare for your guests who come to watch the game. Using an Instant Pot in your kitchen is a quick and relatively easy way to prepare delicious snacks and great meals while gaming.

Like the Multitasking Kitchen Appliance, it’s a multitasking guide, outlining Instant Pot models and football-ready recipes to make with them. First things first: Instant Pot is a brand of a line of multi-purpose pressure cookers that promise to replace other kitchen gadgets, including slow cookers, yogurt makers, rice cookers, steamers and air fryers.

Pressure cooking is a technique that prepares beans, meats, stews and more under high pressure conditions. Pressure cookers cook food much faster than a similarly shaped slow cooker. Instant Pots come with safety features, such as overheat protection and a safety lock lid, which makes pressure cooking seem like a low pressure attempt.

Super Bowl chefs and hosts got creative with this popular kitchen appliance. You can find countless recipes designed for the Instant Pot, available in cookbooks and online. If you’re looking for a bigger collection of great NFL playoff and Super Bowl party foods you can make in an Instant Pot, check out the book “Party in an Instant Pot: 75+ Insanely Easy Instant Pot Recipes from the Editors of Delish”. “

Here’s a breakdown of the most popular Instant Pot models, plus other football party recipes you can create with them, including some NFL hometown favorites. Many of these recipes work for all of the Instant Pot products shown below.
