While this Instant Pot Mac + Cheese is crazy delicious, I’m not sure I’d classify “made from scratch” Mac + Cheese as a recipe where the Instant Pot is required. As I wrap up a week with this fancy gadget, I’ve learned that there’s a big difference between what you CAN make in the IP and what you SHOULD make in it – meaning that I do think that there are a few dishes that yield a better result with a quicker and easier process, but definitely not everything. Mac + Cheese falls under the category of “nice to have” rather than “need to have” when it comes to the necessity of this kitchen tool. If you have an IP, I highly recommend this recipe. If you don’t, don’t buy one for for making pasta.
