The Smaller Instant Pot is Here to Free Up Your Counter Space

I love Instant Pot. You guys love Instant Pot. But what if you don’t have a dinner party every night? What if you live alone but still want to cook fast, easy-to-make food without a crazy amount of clean-up?

Now, you can downsize to the mini 3-quart Instant Pot, which still does the duty of 7 kitchen appliances: rice cooker (actually your favorite rice cooker), slow cooker (another favorite), pressure cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, and warmer.


Although smaller, it still makes a sizable amount of food for all your meal-prepping needs- like up to 12 cups of cooked rice - but takes up about half the amount of counter space when compared to the 6-quart pot, perfect for smaller kitchens and smaller appetites. And still packs a punch in terms of features, like 24-hour delayed start time, dual-pressure setting, and high-temperature monitoring to keep foods from burning. They even made the buttons a little simpler, which is always a good thing!
