It seems like everyone is raving about the Instant Pot these days and it’s easy to see why. The smart pressure cooker, which USA Today calls “2017’s Hottest Gadget,” helps take some of the pressure off of pot roasts and slow cooking thanks to its high-tech seamless app integration and Bluetooth-enabled functionality. A time-tested way of preparing meals, the classic crock pot is a staple of any fully equipped kitchen, and now this cooking technology, long a favorite of grandmas and gourmets, can join the 21st-century and take its place in the networked smart home.

The smart pressure cooker from Instant Pot features 14 built-in cooking programs, a sensor-based automatic keep-warm feature and multiple heat settings. It also comes with a free app for iOS/Android that allows you to remotely monitor cooking progress, sync and share recipes and more.

The smart pressure cooker functions as a slow cooker, rice maker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker and food warmer, among other options. Whether you’re making a slow-roasted chicken dinner, a rice dish or steamed bao, the Insta Pot helps to streamline the process.
