The tipping point for me getting the Instant Pot was @aaronpk’s blog post about his “life stack” tools.. I had heard a lot about this appliance. If it’s on Aaron’s list, I reasoned, it must have a good benefit-to-cost ratio.

I made my first recipe: Butternut Cauliflower Soup. It turned out well. I used my trusty Vitamix to purée it. That works but it is a little fiddly and leads to another appliance needing to be washed. So I’ve ordered the Kitchen Aid Immersion Blender, also on Aaron’s list, for my next soup.

I’m a little afraid to re-read Aaron’s post, because I might find something I need! 💸
