The Instant Pot® Multi cooker is also referred to as a electric pressure cooker is also available in South Africa in a 6 Litre capacity
Why choose an Instant Pot® when you can buy an 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 aluminium pots.
According to Michael Greger’s research into peer-reviewed papers: “What about aluminium cookware? Users had twice the level of aluminium in their blood, and those with the highest levels tended to suffer significantly more damage to their DNA. Occasionally using aluminium pots, utensils, and bottles may not be problematic, but regular, daily use isn’t ideal. And aluminium 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 aluminium. That is the main reason that I chose an Instant Pot®.
In addition, it is a multi-cooker with 7 functions and is totally supported by a smart app, YouTube videos and blogger recipes” Colleen Thornhill
