The Instant Pot Saves Time And Money
You are busy, and just arriving home from another tough day at work. Your children are “starving” and you still have to take them for extra curricular activities tonight.
How can you find the time to cook your family a nice home cooked meal? You simply don’t have hours and hours available to you. Time that would be needed in the kitchen stirring pots every day.
If you are like most of us, you don’t even have:
- the time
- or energy
at the end of the day to even make a quick 30 minute meal cooked from scratch.
As a result, you end up relying on convenience food and takeout. While those options certainly can save you a good bit of time, you end up paying a lot more for your food.
And if your grocery bill is very tight, any money that you can save should seriously be looked at.
Let’s not even mention the fact that convenience and takeout meals aren’t always the healthiest food out there. What ingredients and preservatives are in the food?
Discover The Instant Pot
Today I’m going to tell you about a recent Canadian kitchen appliance invention that will save you both:
- and money.
Better yet, you will be able to serve up wholesome, home cooked meals on those nights when you don’t have a lot of time or energy left. Meals in minutes, not hours.
That alone should grab your attention.

Hands Free Cooking
Not only does it cook your food faster than just about any other method of cooking, it is also very hands-free. You can even cook frozen meat and veggies for those days when you forget to thaw ahead of time. Oops, don’t tell me that I’m the only one that forgot to pull something out of the freezer.
Using the Instant Pot means that you can:
- come home,
- throw some ingredients in the Instant Pot,
- turn it on,
- and then focus your attention on something else.
- This means that you can help your kids with homework,
- start a load of laundry,
- catch up on work email,
- or just sit back and relax for half an hour before dinner is served.
Saves Time In 2 Ways
In other words, the Instant Pot saves you time in two different ways.
- It will take less time overall to cook the food,
- and most of the cooking time doesn’t require you to be there, stirring pots and playing an active role in the cooking process.
That’s a big deal and something you’ll come to appreciate and love when you start to use your Instant Pot regularly.
It Is An Investment
Now it’s time to talk hard, cold cash. An Instant Pot is a bit of an investment, even when you can find a great “Black Friday” style deal on it. I was able to purchase mine on a recent Amazon Prime Day.
On average, you can expect to spend about $100-$200 for this electric pressure cooker. Price will vary depending on the size of Instant Pot and the features. For instance, I purchased a 7-in-1, 8 quart model. However, there is a model that has Bluetooth technology and understandably has a higher price tag.
The good news is that it won’t take you long to recoup this investment.
Worth The Price
An Instant Pot allows you to cook more at home instead of going out to eat, or ordering takeout. This alone will save you anywhere from $5 to $50 per family meal.
Think about it.
- How many times a week do you eat out now?
- What meals are take out?
- Don’t forget the microwave meals too.
- Quick math—how much are you spending?
Now, if you were to make a roast beef or whole chicken dinner with your Instant Pot, what would that cost? You will be amazed as the savings quickly add up.
In fact, what will you do with money you will save by having an Instant Pot in your kitchen?
Cheaper Cuts Of Meat–Transformed
But it doesn’t stop there. The Instant Pot really shines with inexpensive cuts of meat like pot roasts, whole chickens and even more frugal fare like beans and rice. Get in the habit of making just one frugal meal per week using your electric pressure cooker, and start setting those savings aside. Hmm, perhaps you can use the money saved for Christmas gifts.
You can go even further by:
- cooking double batches
- and taking leftovers for lunch instead of buying it.
Saving time and money with an Instant Pot is quick, easy, and almost automatic. The only trick is that you have to actually get in the habit of using it regularly.
