Some models even contain inserts for baking cupcakes, coddling an egg, or steaming fish and veggies.
After you’ve mastered all of your Instant Pot’s settings and recipes, you’ll need to learn how to clean it. After each use, a brief hand wash or a quick trip through the dishwasher (lid, seals, and inner chamber) is required, followed by a wipe-down of the base.

Cleaning before the new baby arrives home

Having a baby is a big job and there are many things you should take care of before it arrives. Apart from buying all the necessary tools and equipment, you should thoroughly clean and disinfect your house and baby-proof it. The deep cleaning and disinfection of the house are of crucial importance since a newborn has sensitive skin and eyes, and is generally prone to catching disease relatively easily. Not to mention that all babies and toddlers touch everything and often put random items in their mouths.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that once the baby is born the mother will need her well-deserved rest and will spend time bonding with her little one. She will not have time to do the cleaning and tidying up of the house. If everything is cleaned thoroughly before they both arrive home, things will be much easier for everyone in the household.
