Before the Instant Pot®, making risotto meant standing at your stove stirring. And stirring some more. You couldn’t risk walking away or the rice might burn. It was exhausting! Now you just have to sauté for a couple minutes, then you’re free to go read a book or play with your dog until it’s done cooking. It’s basically a risotto miracle.
