Instant Pot Six Gun Chili is My very first creation in my brand new Instant pot! I am SO excited about this cool kitchen appliance! It has many advantages for cooks with very little kitchen space and very little time.

I bought my Instant pot after my crock pot pottery insert cracked for the third time in under two years! I use my crock pot ALL the time. But the crockery inserts are not holding up like they used to.
I started looking for options to the crockery pot and found the Instant Pot! I was immediately interested. After reading the reviews and joining the Instant Pot Community FB Group I knew this tool is for me!
The Instant pot advantages:
- The instant pot has a stainless pot that goes from the instant pot to the fridge without cracking or warping.
- The insert pot has a much smaller footprint in my fridge
- The Instant pot also takes less room (although it is taller) than my crock pot did.
- Food is cooked safely and nutritiously
- It has a DELAY function so I can set it and forget it.
- The instant pot slow cooks, makes yogurt, steam veggies, cooks rice and large hunks of meat and even does saute’ right in the pot.
- Food made in the pressure cooker has better flavor (not kidding) and is more nutritious too!
- Finally this little jewel is a money saver since it saves power. Also, you can replace other kitchen appliances like a slow cooker and yogurt maker saving money, fuss and counter space.
