I’ve been wanting an instant pot for a while now. I always forget to set stuff out to cook, so I think having something that cooks so fast would be great!

» Kathie Harvey said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 08:01:46 }

Want this for my daughter. I have one and know what a great thing it would be for a single mother (widowed in August 2016) with 3 kids (9, 3 1/2, and 29 months).

» Natasha said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:17 }

All of my friends have an instant pot and love it! It’s on my wishlist for the days I forgot to set out meat to thaw or forget to throw my ingredients in the crock pot.

» Becca C said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:25 }

Having a family of 6, this would bless my socks off! Making supper would be so much faster and easier.

My MIL has been wanting one. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to buy her one for Christmas. I’d love to surprise her with one. She works hard as an elementary school cook and coming home to a fast meal prep would help her to not spend sooooo much time in a kitchen.

» Joanne said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:04 }

I believe it would help me spend less time in the kitchen, and also be a big help if I forget to plan ahead.

» rebecca childers said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:20 }

i homeschool 9 adorable, darling, angelic, perfectly behaved children. well ok they are adorable sometimes LOL i would love to win this pot so maybe 1 thing a day could be fast and easy LOL

» Tina said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:35 }

I have an old stove-top pressure cooker, but I’d love a fancy new electric one.

» Briana Brown said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:45 }

I would love this! I would use it almost everyday to cook dinner.

» Terri Timmons said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:05 }

I really, really, really need a instant pot…really I do!

» Cheyenne said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:23 }

I would LOVE to win the Instant Pot. We do a lot of healthy eating around here with family members with autoimmune disorders (Crohn’s Disease, etc). I use my crockpot a LOT, but after reading about the Instant Pot, I think it would be sooo helpful!

» Heather said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:28 }

An instant pot would help me get dinner on the table faster

» Katie S. said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:18 }

I have heard so many great things about the instant pot and how many things you can make with it!! I think this would save me a ton of time (and money) in the kitchen by being able to make quick and healthy meals at home!! Thank you so much for doing this giveaway!! 🙂

» Tami said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:37 }

Thank you so much for the chance to win!!

I would love to have an Instant Pot!

» Nora Fries said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 10:01:09 }

I was just thinking about how handy an Instant Pot would be this morning! Hopefully that’s a sign. Thank you for the opportunity.

» Ronda R said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:02 }

I would love an Instant Pot to cook awesome meals for my busy family!

» KIMBERLY S. said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:36 }

I have an instant pot and would love to give one to my mom!!! Instant pot makes my life super easy, especially when I don’t know what we’re having for dinner until late afternoon. 😉

» Kelsy said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:46 }

I love the idea of the IP as a crockpot for the lazy/forgetful.

» Tina said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:08 }

I’ve heard such wonderful things about instant pots. I would LOVE to have one. 🙂

» Nicole Douthit said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:17 }

Who doesn’t want to have super YUMMY food in a flash?!?…We all need a little less stress at meal time and I think the Instant Pot would be the perfect accomplice with your fabulous Meal Plans!

» Holly P. said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:06 }

An Instant Pot would make my life easier because this procrastinating brain would thrive being able to make my family a good, healthy dinner, even when I’m down to the wire…rather than defaulting to salad (they’re getting bored with that).

» cara said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:58 }

This would help so much because I am the worst at remembering to thaw meat.

» Dana Potocki said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:33 }

What a great giveaway! I think an Instant Pot would make life easier because with homeschooling, there are days that dinner doesn’t get done until 7 because I forget to unthaw! (grr).

» Michelle said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:42 }

I have 6 kids and we’re buying a farm, so it would make life a lot easier, to have one of these! 🙂

» Erin said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:41 }

Have been wanting an all in one gadget for a while now!

» Haleigh Adams said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 11:01:21 }

I’ve Bren wanting an insta pot for awhile now! We just found out last week that were moving and have a ton of work to do to our house before we put it on the market. This would help so much with quick easy meals!

» Amanda said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 12:01:47 }

I had not really had much interst in an instant pot until every recipe I see lately uses one. Now I’m wishing I had one to put next to my shiny new air fryer 😉

» Rachel Cusick said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 12:01:02 }

Thanks so much for the chance to win

» Melissa Bywalski said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 12:01:15 }

I need an instant pot because I never remember to plan dinner ahead of time!

» Heather S said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 01:01:15 }

I have heard such good things about Instant Pot. I would love to try one!

» Stacy B said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 01:01:19 }

An Instant Pot would be awesome, have really been wanting to try one!

» Will G said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 02:01:49 }

It would make making dinner a lot easier!

» Susanne Shaw said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 02:01:23 }

I have 4 boys 6 and under and this would be SUCH a lifesaver!! The best of a crockpot and last-minute “oh my goodness I forgot to plan something for dinner” rolled into one! Such a fun giveaway…thank you!! 🙂

» Joyce L said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 02:01:11 }

I have fibromyalgia and arthritis. When i have to stand a long time, my knees swell up and my back will start hurting. Having the instant pot would shorten that time AND shorten the pain time. 🙂

» Karyn said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 03:01:45 }

I need all the shortcuts in the kitchen I can get…which is why I love Build a Menu! An IP would be a great tool for feeding my hungry munchkins quick, tasty, and healthy foods.

» Alyssa said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 04:01:25 }

I saw the instant pot in action for the first time this holiday season. It is so intriguing and would make last minute homemade dinners a snap!

» Stacy Hill said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 05:01:12 }

How will an instant pot benefit me? Since I began my journey of weight-loss I have found a need to research a way to simplify my cooking. I have found that the instant pot offers busy individuals and families the diversity to serve a wonderful home cooked meal with in minutes verses hours.

» Sandy said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 05:01:02 }

My husband is a hospital chaplain with unusual hours and I will be starting back to work part time. Anything that helps us get healthy food on the table fast is a blessing!

» Cathy said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 06:01:50 }

I really wanted one for Christmas but didn’t get it. I have heard so many great things about it. I am not good at getting my meat out in time to cook it and I have heard this is what I need to get dinner on the table.

» Erin said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 06:01:58 }

Homeschooling in the morning typically leads me to forget to thaw something for dinner. It would be great to have the instapot to come to my rescue!

» Samara said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 06:01:48 }

At one point in my adult life, I had 3 slow cookers! I used them for batch cooking and they always came in handy. Last year, all three died on my within two months. I haven’t replaced them yet because I want to get an Instapot instead. Imagine the difficulty of my life with not even a slow cooker to my name! Save me! Award me the Instapot! My family will sing your praises!

» Rachel said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 07:01:57 }

The Instant Pot would make my life easier because making food in a crock pot makes meal time a breeze. It can be hard juggling a full time job, family and household responsibilities.

» Rena said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 07:01:05 }

I’ve been doing a lot of research on the INSTANT POT and I do believe I’m in love! My daughter says I’m obsessed ..lol. Instant pot would not only make my life easier, but also the lives of my two daughters and three grandchildren. We try to take turns cooking for each other in order to help out with everyones super busy schedules. My oldest daughter is a full-time student in her last semester of becoming a Radiation Therapist, as well as being a full time mom to my two oldest grandchildren. My youngest daughter is a full time working, single parent to my youngest grandchild, and also about to start college. As for myself, well I am currently working 40+ hours a week in pharmacy, which also includes some weekends. An instant pot would make it so much easier to prepare delicious and healthy meals quickly so that we can spend time as a family and then get back to our demanding schedules! One Instant Pot would equal 6 very happy people!

» tara h said: { Jan 5, 2017 - 08:01:00 }

I’m sure my situation is like so many others so I’ll spare you the details. I can’t imagine the Instant Pot wouldn’t make anyone’s life easier. I’d appreciate the chance to see it work for us!

» Angie F said: { Jan 6, 2017 - 07:01:17 }

What a great opportunity! An instant pot would save me from yet another unplanned trip to Taco Bell for cheap tacos cause I forgot to load up the crockpot in the morning. Not that I did that yesterday or anything. 😉

» Babetta said: { Jan 6, 2017 - 09:01:32 }

My husband and I have committed to whole food plant based living this year and an instapot will go a long way in helping us keep true to that goal. We both work full time jobs that have after hours demands and sometimes it’s just easier to grab something from a restaurant or the deli section of a grocer. I look forward to making those options obsolete and coming home to fresh cooked meals!

» Amanda Fletcher said: { Jan 6, 2017 - 10:01:59 }

I’d love to try an Instant Pot!

» Randi Cook said: { Jan 6, 2017 - 11:01:18 }

It would make my life better and easier by being able to take meat out from the freezer and cook it!

» Elizabeth Suggs said: { Jan 6, 2017 - 10:01:37 }

I would love to have an Instant Pot to make healthy bone broth, without having to simmer in a pot on the stove for 24 hours!
I love to make soup, so we go through tons of broth. Using my own would be just one more small step in this journey to improve our family’s diet and environment.

» Rachel Janssen said: { Jan 7, 2017 - 05:01:38 }

I never even knew these cookers existed! I would love to own one and make some rice and beans in it.

» Sherril McGann said: { Jan 7, 2017 - 05:01:47 }

I would love to be able to make healthy recipes in a short amount of time.

» JoAnn said: { Jan 7, 2017 - 01:01:18 }

I’ve heard a lot about InstaPot, it would be great to try one.

» Allison M. said: { Jan 7, 2017 - 01:01:00 }

What a fun giveaway! I would love an Instant pot!

» Emily Ricketts said: { Jan 7, 2017 - 03:01:37 }

This would help me cook faster and healthier meals and eat at home more often. Thanks!!

» Melissa said: { Jan 7, 2017 - 03:01:15 }

I have been looking for an instant pot, they sound AMAZING!!

» Liz said: { Jan 7, 2017 - 03:01:53 }

It would be a huge help to win this instant pot. We live in a very small space and anything that can do multiple jobs is a blessing!

» Jenna said: { Jan 7, 2017 - 09:01:37 }

I just heard about the Instant Pot over Christmas, and I would love to try it out! As a full-time working mom, anything that makes it more likely that I’ll actually cook for my family (instead of serving cereal or eggs or picking something up on the way home – again!) would be very much appreciated by my cooking-deprived kids and husband! 😉
