The Instant Pot is currently one of my favorite appliances. This system can make solid frozen chicken breasts in 22 minutes…. It had me at “Hello”
It didn’t take long before I noticed some lingering smells… No matter how much I washed it, you could smell the last thing I cooked in it. Smelling salsa while making mac and cheese wasn’t really what I was going for.
Since clearly the pressure cooking was infusing the metal with smells, I started looking into ways to cook my pot into like new. An easy cleaning method is put 1 Part Water, 1 Part Vinegar and 1/2 a lemon sliced up into the pot, set to the Steam setting for 2 minutes and let this amazing pot do the rest!
Once completed, remove the rubber rim to ensure it can dry fully and you will find yourself with a nice fresh cleaning Instant pot ready for your next adventure!
