Use Your Slow Cooker & Instant Pot to Beat the Summer Heat

Cooking Doesn’t Have to Heat Up Your Kitchen

Think it’s too hot to cook? Don’t let the summer heat keep you from getting in the kitchen and cooking your favorite meals. Keep your cool by relying on the kind of appliances that keep all their heat contained inside: slow cookers, Instant Pots, pressure cookers, or any kind of electric multi-cookers. By not using the stovetop or the oven, your kitchen stays cool.

Hands-Free Cooking = More Time with Family & Friends

These set-it-and-forget-it wonders are also perfect for summertime family meals and gatherings because they’re hands-free — leaving you plenty of time to hang out with friends and enjoy the slower pace, rather than slave over a hot stove. Simply add your ingredients, cover, and set the timer. Then sit back and relax till dinner’s ready.
