I really, truly love my Instant Pot and, based on the many blogs, recipes, and Facebook groups, the rest of the world does too. But, as with any hyped appliance, things are getting a little out of control. And knowing when not to use the Instant Pot can be just as valuable as knowing when you should use it.
Pancakes are pretty easy to make. However, like most breakfast food, they require a certain amount of active cooking, by way of pouring, flipping, and general vigilance. I am quite lazy, especially in the morning, so the idea of a giant, fluffy, set-it-and-go-back-to-sleep Instant Pot pancake appealed to me.
