When I first got my Instant Pot, like many of you, I joined a few Facebook groups, did the water test, boiled eggs, cooked rice and moved on to main meals. But, every now and then, I would come across the term, Pot-in-Pot.
What is Pot-in-Pot Method?
Let’s understand the basic concept first. The Pot-in-Pot Instant pot method is exactly what it sounds like. It is cooking something in a smaller, oven-safe pot (or basket, trivet etc.), inside the main pot of the pressure cooker.
You start by adding water in the inner pot, then place a trivet, which is a metal stand that will give you a base to put another bowl or container on top. Or you can place a steamer basket instead of a trivet if you are cooking eggs or steaming vegetables.
