Instant Cookers or Wonder Pots – Are They All They Are “Crocked” Up To Be?!

Post by Debra Murray

World Launch of Debra Murray’s latest book.

It has been so exciting for me to see the electric pressure cooker finally become a mainstream kitchen appliance.  I sold the very first electric pressure cooker for Revere – Corning on HSN in 2002.  Back then they were almost $200.00.  They were very heavy with a petroleum based inner pot.  The Instant Pot that is taking the world by storm 16 years later is essentially the same product with a few different preset buttons  and a stainless steel inner pot.   The Instant Pot is  essentially  an electric pressure cooker that can slow cook and rice cook too, as well as make yogurt.  I highly recommend them!  I have written 5 different electric pressure cooker books,  you can find links on my site for all of them.  http://The Best Pressure Cooker Recipes on the Planet: 200 Triple-Tested, Family-Approved, Fast & Easy Recipes

I am super excited to announce the launch of my latest book,  it’s called The Best Of Both Worlds.  It is a book for Rice Cookers or Wonder Pots, which are my favorite cooking products of all time!  Rice cookers work in the same fashion as Instant Pots,  but they are not under extreme pressure so you can add ingredients without releasing pressure, they use steam like pressure cooking so you don’t need fats to be tender, it’s a very healthy way to cook. Rice cookers do help you cook absolutely perfect rice and grains effortlessly and for only that reason it’s worth the purchase. In my 15 year love affair with these machines I have fallen in love with the ability to just dump in ingredients,  press a button and come back to perfect food.  That may not sound like the thing you would expect to hear from someone who makes a living cooking,  but sometimes,  even if it’s just make rice for a sick pet,  it’s nice to have easy one touch cooking.

I wrote a very successful rice cooker book years ago,  but it has been out of publication for over a decade,  this book will feature the most popular recipes from that book,  some new recipes for cakes and yogurts,  yes you can make those as well.  In addition to those recipes  I included 80 of my favorite Air Fryer Recipes.  This book is my best book, in my opinion.  If you are looking for something for Mom for Mothers Day.  Moms will love how easy cooking can be!

Chicken Soup For the Soul and Body!

The book, The Best of Both Worlds is only available on  It debuts on Mother’s Day in The Sizzle with Chef Allison.  We will be launching a brilliant new Rice Cooker that morning with the latest and greatest technology in one button cooking with the finest nonstick pot in the market place.  I hope you can join us!  Please celebrate all the Mom’s out there.  Where would we be without them!  Happy Cooking!  Love to you!
