An Instant Pot makes cooking a whole chicken or pork shoulder easier and quicker than ever. 

  1. Instant Pot Lemon-Pepper Chicken

    You haven't had chicken like this before... unless you've had Instant Pot chicken. 

  2. Instant Pot Barbecue Ribs

    It's like they've been cooking all day. But it's only been 30 minutes. 

  3. Pressure Cooker Indian Butter Chicken

    Take the pressure out of weeknight dinners with our Pressure Cooker (or Instant Pot) Indian Butter Chicken. Not only is it full of flavor, quick to make, and only uses 4 ingredients, but our Test Kitchen literally cannot stop making it. 

  4. Instant Pot Butternut Squash Risotto

    Making risotto on the stovetop requires a lot of stirring and babysitting to get the texture of the rice just right. The Instant Pot, however ... it just knows.

  5. Easy Pot Roast

    In this simple recipe, we include instructions for either a slow cooker or an Instant Pot. Both are easy, but one is quicker.
