9. Super Easy to Clean
Sure, cooking is fun but no one likes to clean up afterwards unless you’re Monica Geller. Instant Pot is extremely easy to clean unlike other cookers which take minutes of scrubbing. Its inner stainless steel pot is removable and basically that’s the only part that you’ll actually need to wash. It is dishwasher safe so you can bid farewell to scrubbing pots and pans. You can handwash the sealing ring and lid; just wipe the exterior with a wet piece of cloth and you’re good to go.
