The Instant Pot craze is in full swing -- and with good reason. These handy kitchen devices are a shortcut to making stews and sauces, tenderizing tough and inexpensive cuts of meat, and making most meals a snap to cook. From breakfast to dessert, the Instant Pot can help make hearty, healthy, and indulgent dishes faster and easier.
