Instant Pot's new blender will make you forget about pressure cooking
Instant pot is looking to break into a new category with the instant pot ace, a $99 blender that can also cook the food it mixes.
Now, a cooking blender sounds a little weird, but this combination is well suited that need to heat and blend.
And soup, baby food, or even some milk alternatives.
It's all made possible because of the heating element that's located in the bottom of the pitcher.
To cook in the Ace, you put all of your ingredients into the pitcher and select from one of the four hot blending programs.
Pur��e, soy milk, rice milk, and soup.
The blender will then begin to heat up and display of the temperature appears on the base of the Ace.
The blenders blades plus intermittently throughout the cooking cycle.
Which varies in length of time, based on what program you use.
The Ace's cooking feature works well.
Temperatures inside the pitcher reached a maximum of 212 degrees fahrenheit which gives me confidence that your food of choice will be nice and cooked by the end of hot blending.
The heating element isn't the only thing that makes the Ace blender notable.
Overall, it's a really great blender whether you want your food cold or hot.
The Ace plows through smoothies pesto cheese and almonds in short amounts of time.
The results were dishes that were well combined with no big hunks that miss the blades.
The shortcomings were few and far between specifically, I wish there were some manual settings for heated blending so you wouldn't just have to rely on the presets, which is the only way you can access the heating feature.
Over all, the Instant Pot Ace is a suprising but great addition to the company's electric cookers.
And at $99, it's a great bargain.
