Ode to the Insta-Pot



By Jody Worsham, RIPFS, Recovering Insta Pot Fear Suffer-er


Oh lovely Insta-Pot standing regally on my granite countertop

How I once pushed your buttons, then unplugged your cord…

fearful of pressure unleashed, infinitely repeating.

Oft poking you with a ten foot pole to vent your steam.

Who knew you meant only to decrease my dependence on Taco Bell, McDonalds, Chicken Depressed

Now that you and your Insta-Pot customer Canadian representative have talked me through the intricacies  of Insta-Potting,

I have become one with the 6 quart…

Because of you, eggs no longer explode on the ceiling

 from pots of boiled dry water left forgotten on the stove.

Because of you, roast is succulent, flavorful….and edible

Because of you, frozen chicken can still become chicken spaghetti in less than an hour

Because of you, hubby no longer enters and asks

        “What smells?”

Because of you, children enter our home and ask

       “What smells good?”

So All Hail the Insta-Pot, shiny stainless gleaming from your throne.

Sorryful am I to have ever doubted your magic. 

I am forever your humble pot filler.

I have been thinking of buying one. However, I have a feeling that after using it and praising its wonders, it would soon join all those other large “have to have” cooking marvels (last one being the Air Fryer) in my basement. Out of sight and out of my increasingly forgetful mind.
