Instant Pot Duo Nova Pressure Cooker

This gadget has earned its status as a cult favorite perhaps because it does the same job as many other gadgets, such as a slow cooker and yogurt maker, in one. Plus, the Instant Pot is a timesaver—it cooks food up to 70% faster than other methods, according to its manufacturer. “This little gem allows me to often halve the time it takes to make a dish,” Christen Cupples Cooper, Ed.D., R.D.N., assistant professor and founding director of the Nutrition and Dietetics Program at the College of Health Professions at Pace University, tells SELF. “For example, cooking brown rice and dried black beans usually involves two different pots, clever timing, and what seems eternal waiting while the foods’ textures soften. I can place rice and beans together in the Instant Pot and in 35 minutes, have a tender, delicious meal.”

It also comes with a steaming rack, so you can cook veggies while your meal cooks below, Cooper says.
