If you haven’t gotten your hands on an Instant Pot yet, you’re probably pining for one to magically appear in your kitchen. The popular pressure cooker has taken over other gadgets like rice cookers and crock pots as the ultimate multi-function kitchen tool. Of course, like with any new item you bring into your home, there is one nagging question that comes with it: Where should you store it? There’s no denying that even the smaller Instant Pots can take up counter space you’d rather keep clear for preparing your meals.
That’s exactly why so many folks have been rushing to buy helpful a cart from Target. More specifically, the Round Metal Utility Cart from Made By Design ($30, Target). Although it wasn’t designed with the Instant Pot in mind, it just happens to be the perfect size to store it and any accessories you’ve likely purchased along with it. In fact, some reviewers on the store’s website think this cart should be sold together with every Instant Pot purchase at Target! As one glowing review writes, “I love this cart!!!!!! Used to keep the Instant Pot on my small table which is near an outlet. My table is free again for prep! I love this cart! It should be sold as an Instant Pot accessory along with the steamers, various pans and other utensils. I love this cart!” Apparently saying how much they love this cart just once wasn’t enough — they had to make sure everyone knows how great it is by saying it at least three times!
It’s not just the size, shelves, and round shape that makes this an ideal addition to your kitchen, but also the fact that the cart is on wheels. That means you can easily tuck it away when you’re not using the pot and roll it back out when you’re ready to plug it in for a recipe. Just when you thought the Instant Pot couldn’t get any better, this simple cart goes ahead and makes it all the more convenient.
