The Instant Pot, a combination cooker / pressure cooker that revolutionized the kitchen of the world in just a few short years, is part of the blender business. The new Instant Blender Instant Pot Ace 60 blender is designed for cooling, cooking and mixing. Exclusive Walmart, it is available now for 99 dollars.
Ace 60 has eight Smart programs — four each for cold and hot mixing. Of course, there are also three manual low, medium and high speeds, if you just want to mix something quickly. But Instant Pot made its bones in a "set and forget" functionality. The new Ace 60 culinary blender fits perfectly into the rest of the product line.
Now you can make smoothies, peanut milk, ice cream and crush the ice in your blender at the touch of a button. Cooling and storing all ingredients cold when mixed is a damn sweet feature. And the presence of ice cream in the house is just a bonus.
These are all great things, of course. But what worries us most about Ace 60 is four hot mix programs that allow us to mix hot soup and more in a matter of minutes. Now some reviewers at Walmart.com have noticed that it is a pity that the level of heat is not regulated – it is either turned on or not. But everyone agrees that hot-mixing programs are great for cooking and quick-mixing dishes from one jug. And it is ideal for soups, such as squash squash, peas, etc.
The hot feature is also ideal for making homemade soy and rice milk. And parents of babies will enjoy the possibility of mashed potatoes and warming up their own baby food in one fell swoop.
The display in real time shows the cooking temperature in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius, so you can immediately check the cooking progress. The powerful and silent engine with a speed of 23 000 rpm crushes, mixes and crushes rigid ingredients for only a few seconds. The Pulse / Clean feature allows you to break up large portions of food or thoroughly clean the blender. Best of all, Ace 60 comes with a 60-ounce glass jar. Glass obviously adapts to temperature changes much better and resists them than plastic.
After all, the Instant Pot Ace 60 cooking blender is a pretty cool machine. But do you really need? If you want to replace the old full-size blender, the answer is undoubtedly yes. If you already have a blender, but are intrigued by the opportunity to beat mashed potatoes or make homemade soups and peanut milk, Ace 60 can be a valuable tool in your arsenal. Residents of apartments and people with limited space in the kitchen will surely find it valuable, especially if you make a lot of your own cocktails or have a baby in the house. And lovers of ice cream and frozen desserts should be delighted.
