The Instant Pot® is also available in 8 Lit in South Africa – the best electric pressure cooker
Why choose an Instant Pot® when you can buy another electric pressure cooker for under R1000?
The most important reason that I chose the Instant Pot® over other electric pressure cookers is that the pot that you cook in is stainless steel. All other cheaper brands have aluminum pots.
According to Michael Greger’s research into peer-reviewed papers: “What about aluminum cookware? Users had twice the level of aluminum in their blood, and those with the highest levels tended to suffer significantly more damage to their DNA. Occasionally using aluminum pots, utensils, and bottles may not be problematic, but regular, daily use isn’t ideal. And aluminum foil? There is leakage from foil to food, but it’s more of an issue for young children or those suffering from diminished kidney function.”
“From my perspective, when something is used frequently and relates to what goes into your body, I would prefer to invest in the more expensive stainless steel option than risk the impact of aluminum. That is the main reason that I chose an Instant Pot” Colleen Thornhill
Also available in 8 Lt which is the only 8 Litre electric pressure cooker available in South Africa.
