About Instant Pot Eats

Welcome to Instant Pot Eats!

First of all, thank you for stopping by. If you’re new to the site, here is a little bit about who we are and what we do.

Instant Pot Eats is as a collaboration cooking and recipe blog, founded in 2016. We (the key authors) happened to get an Instant Pot around the same time and fell in love it.  Most of us we have previously developed recipes for other blogs or have written online, so we decided to put our forces together and start a website dedicated to our favourite pressure cooking gadget.

We share a variety of Instant Pot recipes catered to different diets, budgets and needs, as well as roundups of our favourite dishes and ideas from around the web. You can find our Instant Pot 101 series here, which are useful for anyone mastering their new pressure cooker, and if you’re looking for Instant Pot books, you can check out our list of cookbook reviews and guest recipes here.

Our team is based in the UK and the U.S. but we hope that our readers come from many different countries. Read a little bit more about us below.

You can contact us at team@instantpoteats.com and you can follow us on Instagram here, Facebook here, and Pinterest here. We also have a lively community group on Facebook where you can interact with us and other Instant Pot users.
