Extra Pot

Having an extra pot can greatly speed up the pressure cooking of multiple items for the same meal. I can even rationalize the need for having two Instant Pots! Just having the extra pot allows you to prep something else while the Instant Pot is cooking. Often meat is going to take a lot longer to cook, than vegetables. As a result, you end up cooking the meat first, then taking it out, etc. It’s just more of a pain. Almost weekly I cook a large batch of frozen vegetables, start it, and then prep a large batch of frozen chicken in the second pot. That way I can quickly swap them out when the vegetables are done. It keeps things moving.
