Cook with an energy-efficient pressure cooker

By: Anne-Christine Strugnell, Resilient Neighborhoods

Pressure cookers are an energy-efficient way to cook beans and other foods that require long cook times. That’s one great reason to get an Instant Pot (which costs less than $100). 

But wait, there’s more! The Instant Pot can also reduce your use of natural gas if you can’t afford to replace your gas stove. It does everything a stovetop can and more: sauté, simmer, and even incubate yogurt by keeping the temperature around 110°F for several hours, which stovetop pressure cookers can’t do.

Be an energy-efficient cook and put an end to gas stovetop guilt!
