Welcome to the Rootitoot website where you will find valuable tips and amazing recipes to help you on your pressure cooking journey. Sadly the creator, Ruth "Rootitoot" McCusker passed on early in 2020. Nevertheless her family is continuing her legacy just as she wished. Here are a few words from Ruth herself:

"Hi! I'm Ruth “Rootitoot” McCusker. (Rootitoot is what my dad called me when I was a little girl.) I'm a 63-year-old Canadian grandma. I've always been a good cook and I truly love helping people, especially with Instant Pot cooking.

I know how intimidated I was by my Instant Pot when I first started and I will help you feel comfortable and confident with yours. It's the Grandmother in me. I can't help it. I want you to succeed and love it as much as I do.

I'm sharing my treasured family heirloom recipes that I learned from my mother and tweaked over the years.

If you are new to Instant Pot or even new to cooking, you're in the right place. I write step by step recipes and I don't leave anything to chance. Take my hand, come into the kitchen... and cook like a grandma."

For even more personal help, please join our Facebook group, Rootitoot Instant Pot Recipes & Help, which is still growing and being enjoyed today just as it was when Ruth was there nurturing it herself.

The spirit of Ruth's hand is here still for you to take, to help guide you in your kitchen to cook like a grandma. She left an incredible treasure trove of her knowledge, kindness and expertise in the form of this website, her books and her Facebook Group, where her family and friends can help you with any questions you may have about pretty much anything to do with electric pressure cooking.

So be well, have fun and happy cooking to everyone!
