Instapot braises, steams, fries, makes yougurt, and despite no special spot on the dial, can now safely sterilize your precious N-95 masks.
As Vishal Verma, one of the authors of "Dry heat as a decontamination method for N95 respirator reuse" reports in Environmental Science and Technology Letters
"The respirators maintained their filtration capacity of more than 95% and kept their fit, still properly seated on the wearer's face, even after 20 cycles of decontamination in the electric cooker."
