You’ve got a career, a family to support and loads of other obligations – basically life is busy. We totally get it. That’s why an instant pot or multi cooker is such a game-changer. It can do the job of multiple appliances in a fraction of the time. Plus, there are lots of options available in the RCS Shopping Network so you can swipe your RCS Card and get one today. Want to know more? Here’s the lowdown:



Despite using the term “instant”, these multi cookers are not in fact, instant. They’re not magic after all. That being said they do work significantly faster than doing the same job on a stove top, reducing cooking time by at least 50 percent. This compact kitchen appliance can do the job of a rice cooker, steamer, slow cooker, pressure cooker, cake maker and more so it’ll save you time, money and counter space. The preset functions on the instant pot are designed to cook your chosen food to perfection and the specific functions will depend on which model you choose to take home.



Food is cooked quickly with a combination of high pressure and lots of heat. The pre-programmed functions take the guesswork out of cooking and everything from browning mince to cooking pasta can be done in the one pot. If cooking, and the resulting dishes, aren’t really your thing, you’ll definitely want to swap your pots and pans for one of these clever machines.
