Mealthy MultiPot and This Old Gal’s Pressure Cooker Cookbook

There is a new multipot on the scene and so far, I am impressed. The Mealthy MultiPot 9-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker is a 6 quart workhorse with a stainless steel pot, steamer basket that pressure cooks, slow cooks, sautés, cooks rice, makes yogurt and steams – all combined with instant access to the Mealthy recipe app. For more details, see the Mealthy website. Not only does this Multipot cover all of the above functions, but Mealthy’s newest and most innovative product, the CrispLid, converts any electric pressure cooker into an air fryer. Broil, crisp, and air fry directly in the steel pot of your electric pressure cooker and it is compatible with both 6 and 8 quart electric pressure cookers. Prime Day  is just around the corner and Mealthy will be giving away one of these CrispLids here at Eat Your Books. See Mealthy’s website for more details. Today, we have a combined promotion. Mealthy is providing one winner in the US or Canada, a chance to win a Mealthy MultiPot 9-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker and a copy of This Old Gal’s Pressure Cooker Cookbook: 120 Easy and Delicious Recipes for Your Instant Pot and Pressure Cooker (on sale for 2.99 Kindle) by Jill Selkowitz. This Old Gal’s Pressure Cooker Cookbook contains recipes and tips to cover every meal. I picked up a Kindle copy for 2.99 as the review copy hasn’t made it to me yet and I am pleased. As I have said before, I am a huge fan of international dishes and this title includes recipes that cover cuisines such as Chinese, Indian, and Vietnamese. Her tested tips for creative pressure cooking are shared and Jill shares her recipes for spice blends and sauces before delivering 120 other dishes! I tested the Mealthy Multipot’s rice function and pressure cooker setting this week and am very happy with the results. I could tell no difference in the quality of the pot itself or food prepared in that of other big name multicookers. In fact, I may have a new favorite appliance. Yesterday, I experimented with the CrispLid (remember this lid can be used on any 6 or 8 quart multicooker) and made boneless fried chicken thighs. You can judge for yourself my results: Granted the photo above represents the most perfect piece and sometimes with an air fryer you lose some of that crispy crust but for the health benefits and lack of an oily mess this chicken was a winner. I do recommend buying these air fryer liners  to help make cleanup of the metal liner easier.

Special thanks to Mealthy for sending me their Multipot and CrispLid to review as well as for providing the product and cookbook in the giveaway below. Come back soon for a giveaway of the CrispLid.

    My favorite recipe for the pressure cooker is definitely bone broth. It's so ridiculously fast and fail proof! So much better than letting it boil away on the stove for a whole day and having it still not gel. I use my pressure cooker at least twice a day though, it's perfect for steaming veggies!
