More about the Instant Pot

The Instant Pot is an intelligent multi-cooker with 7 functions including a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker/porridge maker, sauté/browning pan, steamer, yogurt maker and stockpot warmer. The Instant Pot cooks meals faster with less energy while preserving more nutrients.

Imagine coming after home after work having forgotten to defrost your meat. With instant pot you can cook food from a frozen state with great results. If you love beans you dont have to worry about cooking them for hours, with instant pot it takes no time to cook dried beans. This is great for your pocket as dried beans are much cheaper.

My Instant Pot was from Target and it was delivered to me in less than a week which was good as I hear that sometimes you have to wait weeks to get one on other sites. The instant pot comes in different models the lux, duo, duo plus, ultra and smart. I wanted to get the smart model but could not justify the extra cost so I went with the duo model. The duo model has pretty much the same functions as the smart besides the fancy bluetooth technology.

I could go on and on about the instant pot but all I can say is I am glad I bought it. I can’t stop talking about it you would think I work for Instant Pot. I really just love it and it has made my life in the kitchen much easier. Stay tuned for more instant pot recipes!

  1. I haven’t jumped on the instant pot bang wagon. I know it cooks really fast but I have my slow cooker and my pressure cooker. Thinking I don’t need one more big appliance to take up cupboard space. If a person doesn’t have a pressure cooker or slow cooker I could see getting one.

  2. I am obsessed with Instant Pot recipes at the moment (I love how simple they are!). I’ve never tired Coconut Rice before but it looks super yummy.

  3. I really need to get an instant pot. I keep hearing how awesome they are and what they can do. This recipe sounds amazing too.

  4. I love coconut rice and I never even thought to make it in my Instapot! I will definitely be trying this!

  5. I’ve never heard of mirepoix, but it sounds like a great mixture to add to a lot of different dishes. We eat a lot of rice in our household, and I would love to try this recipe.

  6. I love the taste of coconut! I probably should add more rice to my diet too. So I will absolutely try this recipe out!

  7. The rice here looks great and sounds yummy. I am curious about the instapot and cooking times. I guess I will have to check one out next time I am at Target.

  8. Yay. One more recipe to try making with my Instant Pot too. Like you, I am a newbie owner of this incredible kitchen gadget. So far, so good. There is still more to learn and more recipes to enjoy!

  9. I haven’t tried this kind of dish. But cooking in a pot is the best. Because for me I think ingredients are cooked best on pit. Will copy your recipe in the future.

    • I am so used to making my rice in a rice cooker or instant pot but every now and then I use a pot too.

  10. We eat rice everyday, but it’s just the usual plain rice cooked with water. This sounds delicious. I might have to try your recipe later.

  11. Oh yummy! We love coconut and usually have it as an ingredient in a dessert but have never tried cooking rice with it. This would be really tasty! Saving this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
