The Essential Instant Pot Cookbook by Coco Morante

I was SO excited when I saw this book on the Blogging for Books list!  I have been using my Instant Pot quite a bit lately but I am always looking for recipes that I can try and possibly add to our favorites.

This cookbook has a lot of recipes but I found something about myself. I don’t like multi-step recipes for the Instant Pot. The whole reason I have an Instant Pot is so that I can put ingredients in the pot, set it, walk away to do something else before I need to serve dinner and then eat. Many of the recipes in the book have multiple steps where you would have to come back to the pot several times. Too much work for what I am looking for.

There are a couple of recipes I am very excited to try.  I would say though that the favorite parts of the cookbook, weren’t the recipes but the other information. There is a whole section at the beginning of the book that shared the different tools that are helpful.  For instance, I learned how to steam things using the Instant Pot.  I had no idea that I could use my steamer in there…now maybe it will be used for something other than a hat!

At the end of the book, there were several REALLY helpful charts about cooking times. Honestly, one of the biggest things I have been trying to do is convert the recipes I love but take a long time to bake. With the charts this book has, it made it much clearer how I can figure out cooking times.

I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my review.
