Of all the kitchen appliances out there, the Instant Pot is one of the most popular. Since its release in 2010, the do-it-all device has developed an almost cult-like following and has seen its sales numbers double, annually, the New York Times reports. Fans of the Instant Pot have even created blogs, Instagram accounts, and Facebook groups devoted to the appliance, swapping recipes, tips, and tricks.
