If you’ve never heard of the Instant Pot you should go and check it out over on Amazon. Imagine the best Slow Cooker in the world and times that by a hundred.

It’s a slow cooker, a pressure cooker, and you can even use it to sauté instead of having to use another pan before you put stuff in the slow cooker, who has time for that? Just set the time, close the lid and go. It even keeps your food warm once it’s finished cooking! There’s not much it can’t do.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Rapeseed or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this  Syn Free Meatball Marinara recipe.
