www.SouthwestOrlandoBulletin.com x January 18 — 31, 2018 x 5 FOODIE FOR THOUGHT Instant Pot Inspiration Modern-Day Pressure Cooker Works Magic in Kitchen by Kirsten Harrington Goodbye slow cooker, hello Instant Pot. If you’ve resolved to do more cooking in 2018, you might want to invest in this multifunctional cooking device that takes the place of several kitchen appliances, clearing up counter space and slashing meal-preparation time. Instant Pot is the brand name for a programmable electric pressure cooker that can braise, sauté, slow cook, steam, warm, cook rice, make yogurt and even bake a cake — all in one pot. This Canadian-designed smart cooker boasts of cutting cooking time by up to 70 percent, making it possible to prepare healthy meals in a fraction of the time. Since one device can perform six to nine functions, it saves kitchen space, making it perfect for dorm rooms, tiny apartments and places with limited cooking facilities. There are even versions that are Bluetooth-enabled, so you can get dinner started from your tablet or phone. Save Time Being able to cook from scratch quickly means you can prepare a whole chicken in 25 minutes, prepare falling-off-the-bone-tender barbecue ribs in under an hour, or sear beef and sauté veggies for stews and soups and then cook all in one pot. Forgot to defrost the meat? No problem. You can go from frozen to dinner in less than an hour. Put the Instant Pot to work on Sundays for meal planning by cooking pork CONTINUED ON PAGE 6 NEW CLASSES COMING JANUARY 2018 * TAP, YOGA, CONTEMPORARY, VARIATION WORKSHOPS, AND MUCH MORE! *Select Classes Taught by Orlando Ballet’s Professional Dancers THREE CONVENIENT CENTRAL FLORIDA LOCATIONS REGISTER TODAY ORLANDOBALLET.ORG © Photography by Michael Cairns 2017 Help our customers. 2018 Customer Service Representatives Full Time Roles with Excellent Benefits Go to jobs.conduent.com Email charity.thalacker@conduent.com
