Pressure cookers used to have a bad reputation. Everyone had a story about how Cousin Agnes had one and she somehow blew up her kitchen with it.

Old-style pressure cookers were intimidating appliances, especially for those of us raised on the ease and safety of microwaves. But then came the Instant Pot.

The new appliance combined pressure cooking, slow cooking, sauteing and, depending on the model, other techniques such as yogurt-making and cake-baking. Suddenly, pressure cooking felt safe — and hip — again.

There’s no question that the Instant Pot has captured the hearts and kitchens of many. Just try reading through some of the glowing reviews on Amazon, or joining one or more of the Facebook groups devoted to the appliance.

Gluten-free groups love it. Those who’ve gone paleo or vegetarian sing its praises. Dieters and those with allergies have all found it an aid. Call it the equal-opportunity appliance.

If an Instant Pot is in your plans — or maybe on your shelf — following are several ways it can save you enough money to quickly pay for itself.
