The Food Network's Pioneer Woman has a line of floral Instant Pots at Walmart and they are precious

The Food Network's Pioneer Woman has a line of floral Instant Pots at Walmart and they are preciousCalling everyone who watches the Food Network as if it's a religion: Your obsession is about to get worse. We're sure you've heard of the Pioneer Woman (she's kind of a big deal) — and if you've seen her show, you know that she is the definition of a precious human. She's designed a new line of Instant Pots with flowers on them, which debuted at Walmart this week, and it's the cutest thing we've ever seen. SEE ALSO: Best Instant Pot cookbooks on Amazon This floral Instant Pot comes in the form of the six-quart LUX, the 6-in-1 model that pressure cooks, slow cooks, sautés, cooks rice, steams, and warms. According to their website, Instant Pots use 70% less energy than the average pressure cooker, but somehow cook food, as their title states, instantly — well, 2-10 times faster, but that's the closest to instant you're gonna get. And the fact that these are launching right before holiday shopping kicks into high gear — coincidence? I think not. I'm sure you already have a list of people in your head who would love to have this puppy sitting on their counter, or you're already ordering one for yourself (raises hand). There are two floral options: A royal blue one with a water color theme or a teal one with an adorable vintage floral pattern. The latter is already sold out (are we surprised?), but we're sure it'll be back ASAP for the hungry holiday shoppers. Find them for $99 each here.
