What is an Instant Pot
If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you may be wondering what it is. To answer this question simply, an Instant Pot is a cooking device that combines several different cooking functions in one, making it an ideal multi-cooker to have for RV living. For example, this 9-in-1 Instant Pot can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, warmer, sterilizer and a sauté mode.
Whether you are interested in an Instant Pot for your RV or for your house, having one cooking gadget that can do multiple cooking functions means space savings and fewer cooking devices.

Is an Instant Pot Safe to use?
When I first started using the Instant Pot in 2016, one of the first questions my mom asked me was whether the Instant Pot is safe to use. Since it is primarily an electric pressure cooker, her concern was around whether the device would explode due to too much pressure. Based on my years of personal experience using the Instant Pot and following the instructions provided with it, I can share that I’ve never had an issue.
Once I showed my mom how to use the Instant Pot she was quickly fell in love with it and has been using it on a regularly basis for nearly as long as I have. I would venture to say that mom probably uses her Instant Pot more than I do!
