There are so few things around my house that I couldn't live without or that I recommend to friends and family ALL.THE.FREAKING.TIME, but the Instant Pot is one of them! I received my first one as a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law years ago (thanks so much, Kathie!), and it has replaced so many kitchen appliances and gadgets, including my oven, toaster oven, and slow cooker. (I use a Mealthy CrispLid -- another awesome gadget I recommend! -- with it and it has replaced my oven for just about everything, saving me pre-heating time, and just time in general since things cook faster in a smaller space!)
I loved my large IP so much, I bought a smaller one so I could meal prep multiple things simultaneously...and I'm very close to purchasing a third one, because, well, I do a LOT of meal prepping one day a week(!), and it's so nice to be able to throw ingredients in, set the timer, and walk away to do other things without watching the stove or waiting for a timer to go off. I also love that the only cleanup is throwing the liner pot in the dishwasher -- no more pots or pans, utensils, bowls, etc. to scrub in the sink or crowding the dishwasher!
Besides easy clean-up & time savings, there are plenty of great reasons why this is the best-selling item on Amazon year after year! If you don't have one yet, get one! Then, ask me for some delicious recipes. I've got plenty of them -- and tips & tricks, too -- to share!
