Shortly after Instant Pot came out with its Ace Multi-Use Cooking and Beverage Blender, the blogosphere started to light up with reviews and a clamoring for recipes that go beyond the usual smoothies. So we had to see for ourselves what all the excitement was about.
In short, this blender is truly a first of its kind. It has eight discrete "smart" functions (more on those below), some of which combine chopping, pureeing, or mixing with heating and that truly set this device apart from other blenders on the market.
The America’s Test Kitchen test cooks were impressed with its ability to both cook foods and complete regular functions you would usually expect from a blender, all in one package. If you are considering giving this blender a chance, you already own it, or are just trying to learn more about the newest invention from Instant Pot, this is what you need to know.
