The instant pot has become my absolute favorite kitchen appliance for so many reasons!
1) The instant pot it cooks meals in a fraction of the time. 2) While the instant pot is doing the cooking, you are freed up to do other things - no need to stand in front of the stove for long periods of time! 3) Clean up is easy - you only have one pot to wash! 4) It makes meals taste like they've been cooking all day in only 20-30 minutes. I have to admit, it can be intimidating at first when you see all those buttons, but once you actually use it, it is really simple and there are mostly only 3 buttons you need to get to know (saute, manual and cancel).
Toaster Oven/Air Fryer Combo
When I went looking for a new toaster oven, I found that they now make combination toaster oven/air fryers! Instead of buying and storing two bulky appliances, it is now conveniently one! Microwaves strip the essential nutrients out of our food, which is why I never use them. I use the toaster oven to heat up my food instead. At 350 degrees, I can heat up a whole meal in 10-20 minutes without zapping my food with radiation. Additionally, the air fryer gives food a delicious crispiness by circulating hot air, instead of using rancid, unhealthy oils. I love the air fryer especially for cooking chicken and fish quickly and deliciously without all the grease (and calories).
