Before I got my Instant Pot, I really thought it was so silly. I actually told my friend that it was an overpriced hard boiled egg cooker. Then I got one as a present and my eyes were opened.

Yes, it makes the most wonderful and easy to peel eggs, but there are so many other advantages too! My homemade chicken broth is so flavorful, I love having an easy way to make egg muffins for a weeks woth of breakfast, my homemade pot roast has never been as tender before, and a lemon cream cheese dump cake was wonderfully easy to make!

So, if you haven't bought an Instant Pot yet and are wondering if it is worth it....YES!
