Chef's Escape

In making our build list for 17b we opted for no microwave, will take our Instant Pot instead. It's a slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, pressure cooker, sauté, brown meat, even bake the best cheesecake ever. Just putting this out there as "food for thought".

Hi: Pfaffy... "Instant Pot" must be a new type of quick growing weed. It's sure to revolutionize the industry!!! Alf

I have heard rave reviews for the Instant Pot from several people. I might have to get one! Maybe you could do a demo at a rally. Or we could have an Instant Pot "throw down"!

We love our instant pot, and it makes short work of beans, or a pot roast, and also makes excellent rice. But, and this is a big but, it is a power hog. It's really only practical if you have hookups. What we like the most about it is, if we want a dish that would normally take 2+ hours to prepare, it can be done in less than 30 with the same results.

If you don't have a hookup when camping you will need sufficient batteries and inverter to run your 10 amp cooker...

I usually run up to Colorado for my instant pot.

If you don't have a hook-up, a microwave isn't really practical either. To me, choosing an Instant Pot over microwave could make perfect sense. (We already know Alf is on board.)

But can it do pop corn?

Oregon

When we came into Oregon last spring we
went through a town that had a shop with the title Bill's Buds scrawled on the side. From the next two weeks whenever we encountered irresponsible driving we remarked that the driver had probably shopped at Bill's earlier that day. Two of my kids have one of these new fangled cookers and say they work great but they haven't invited me over for a meal yet.
