Welcome to Set It & Forget It, a new series about all the ways we rely on our slow cookers, Instant Pots, and ovens during the colder months. Whether it’s a long braise on the stove or a quick burst in the pressure cooker, one thing’s for sure: Comfort food means comfort cooking.

Skim a bunch of Instant Pot-y cookbook covers and you’ll notice a pattern pretty quickly. Melissa Clark’s Dinner in an Instant has saucy glazed ribs and its follow-up Comfort in an Instant, chicken Parmesan. Instantly Southern shows a pulled pork sandwich (appropriate). Archana Mundhe’s Essential Indian Instant Pot Cookbook brings creamy butter chicken. All of which to say, the Instant Pot excels at a lot of things, but they all boil down to: comfort food.

As my co–recipe developer Ella Quittner puts it, “My Instant Pot and I can’t wait to have many cozy nights in together all fall and winter.” For many reasons, she tells me, but especially: “Deeply flavored ragu, in under an hour! Mac and cheese in 6 minutes! Beans, broth, and none of the guesswork.”

Yes, please, and thank you.
