Instant Pot

Hosting Thanksgiving dinner is no easy feat, but there is one incredible kitchen gadget that will make preparing a feast for friends and family a whole lot easier. The Instant Pot is so much more than an ordinary slow cooker.

This multi-functional appliance does any job your crock pot can do, and it serves as an electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, browning pan, steamer, yogurt maker, egg cooker, sterilizer and warming pot. That’s nine functions in one, if you’re counting.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed about Thanksgiving cooking this year, reach for the Instant Pot to tackle these recipes.

Turkey and Gravy

Turkey is the centerpiece of any Thanksgiving dinner, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to traditional methods to wow your guests. This Instant Pot turkey breast and gravy recipe beautifully moist and tender turkey every time, so you can stop stressing about your bird drying out in the oven.

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce from scratch is one of the first things to go when Thanksgiving prep gets overwhelming. Instead of reaching for the sauce in a can, make this simple Instant Potrecipe from dried cranberries.

Mashed Potatoes

There are few Thanksgiving comfort foods as satisfying as mashed potatoes. The Instant Pot can help you cut your cooking time in half, from boiling for 30 minutes on the stove top to a quick 13 minutes on the pressure cooker setting.

Pumpkin Pie

The Instant Pot can even make dessert. Treat your guests to mini-pumpkin pies “baked” on the pressure cooker setting instead of in the oven.
