So you did it. You clicked “buy now” on that Instant Pot on Amazon.com. Your brand new and shiny Instant Pot arrived on your front step and you excitedly brought it inside. You set it on your counter, stood back, looked at it and said,
“WHAT NOW?” What do I do with this? I don’t know how to cook with the machine! I don’t even know any Instant Pot recipes!
Many people out there stop at that very step. The act of opening that box and plugging in the Instant Pot is so daunting, they leave it in the box and walk away for days, weeks, or even months. I’m here to tell you though—OPEN THAT BOX! Get started now, because you are going to fall in love with this appliance!
