This costly cooker is a culinary masterReplace your current stash of small appliances with the $299 Instant Pot Smart.
Hey, guys. I'm Megan Wollerton for CNET appliances. And this is the $299 Instant Pot Smart that is a pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, saute, simmer, basically everything that you could ever want to do in your kitchen all in one handy device. This thing also has Blue Tooth smarts and related apps so you can check on the status of your food or even start a cooking cycle from the comfort of your own couch. Here's the rundown. I love this thing. It's expensive, but it makes excellent, excellent food and can do so many different things. I made pot roast, pulled pork, yogurt, creme brulee, rice, quinoa. So, so many different things and everything turned out as expected or better. We haven't reviewed a lot of products that compare directly to this, but Rychris is testing something called the Time Machine. That is a rice cooker. It's not a smart rice cooker, but it can do a lot of the. The same things that this one can, minus the smart and the pressure-cooking function. So if you're looking for just a simple rice and grain cooker, I think the $70 dollar Tim3 machine is a smart choice. But if you want something that can replace a lot of devices in your kitchen, this is a really, really good product. The one hangup I have is the price but you can find it for 250 bucks on Amazon which is a pretty significant price reduction. So, all and all, I think this is a really excellent product. If you live in a small apartment with a small kitchen and you need optimize your space it is a really, really solid product that will make all of your meals incredibly well. Thanks for watching this review of the Instant Pot Smart. I'm Megan Wollarton for CNet Appliances.
