What is an Instant Pot?
The Instant Pot (Lux V3) is an electric pressure cooker that’s all about convenience. The only thing you have to do is slice up some ingredients and press the right button(s). It combines the functions of a Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Sauté, Steamer, and Warmer, easily replacing a few of your existing kitchen appliances.
