About America's Test Kitchen & Instant Pot Ace Blender Cookbook

Revolutionary Recipes for the Blender That Can Also Make Dinner

Here in the test kitchen we are always on the lookout for new appliances that can make cooking better or easier. So when Instant Pot came out with its Ace Multi-Use Cooking and Beverage Blender, we were intrigued. After the Ace Blender’s integrity stood up to our tests, we created The Instant Pot Ace Blender Cookbook which delivers 75 foolproof recipes you’ll really want to make at home—many of which will undoubtedly seem surprising. In the end, we were converts to using a blender that could cook a meal and handle the usual blender tasks (yes, it also makes nice smoothies). In the pages of this book, you will learn exactly how to use the Ace Blender, along with the tips, techniques, and discoveries that enabled the test kitchen to make the most of it.


75 Foolproof Recipes The Instant Pot Ace Blender Cookbook

"If you're interested in a blender that cooks, I highly recommend the Ace, but only if you buy it with America's Test Kitchen's book. The only thing that could make this pairing more effective and useful is if the book arrived nestled inside the blender's own styrofoam clamshell." — Wired
