Celebrity chef Dave Chang has a podcast that I regularly listen to. This particular podcast had a short segment starting at 39:34 about the ubiquitous InstantPot. To be honest, I had been looking to see if a pressure cooker or a slow cooker would be beneficial to me during these unusual COVID-19 times and once normalcy returns. I had looked at an InstantPot but I had been hesitant about these multi-functional devices because… well multi-functional means the devices does nothing well (which I might add was also a sentiment of Dave Chang and his guest).
Since then I’ve done a deep dive into the various pressure cookers, slow cookers and multi-functional cookers in the market. There’s a lot and such a wide price range too. For now, I’m going to hold off on any purchase until later. I’m trying out a 2nd hand slow cooker to see if its useful.
