Behind the Scenes Time Lapse – Chili with Certified Angus Beef

Amazon Lightning Deal on Instant Pot SMART at 1:29PM EST

Psst – Amazon has a pre-Christmas Lightning Deal on the fancier Bluetooth-enabled version of my favorite pressure cooker, the Instant Pot IP-SMART, starting at 1:29PM EST. I own an IP-SMART, and use it all the time alongside my IP-Duo. I don’t use the bluetooth features that separate it from my IP-Duo, which is why I don’t recommend it at its higher price…but with this deal, the price is only $35 more for the newer model. For that difference, I would spring for the IP-Smart.  If you’re looking for a last minute Christmas gift (or just want to treat yourself), wait until 1:29PM EST, and then grab one quickly – once they’re gone, they’re gone: &amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br /> Instant Pot IP-SMART [Amazon.com Lightning Deals] Any purchases through that Amazon link support DadCooksDinner – thank  you!
