Welp, I’m rich.

Good news though. You can be too if you have a pressure cooker. Turns out you just throw some charcoal in your Instant Pot, turn it on high pressure for like 6 months and BOOM: DIAMONDS!

I figured this would probably work fine, but I wasn’t expecting the diamonds to come out perfectly cut and polished! Instant Pots truly are magical.

  1. Nice one Nick – although usually you have me going for a little bit longer on April Fool’s. This one was pretty obviously a joke – but nonetheless a creative one!

  2. Do you have instructions for making this in a slow cooker? I don’t yet have an instant pot.

      1. I cracked up when I read this but the first thing I noticed was the date and then I wondered how many people actually tried it lol

  3. Tried this… added food coloring and got sapphires. Great recipe! Am now independently wealthy, and will send a thank-you check to you.

  4. There seems to be an error in the recipe. Total cooking time doesn’t account for prep time. This glaring mistake makes me think you don’t take this recipe seriously! 2 stars!

  5. No one told me that this would destroy my instant pot! But at least I’m rich now and flying around the globe in my personal jumbo jet. lol

  6. 4 stars
    I hear if you put spare change into it 3/4 to top and add tsp salt and some shredded tin foil. Cook on high 36.2541hrs. Then fill the room with 132 megahertz frequency for 4m 36s precisely. Turn off lights. Open cooker. Yes!! There it is!!! What a wonder to behold ! You’re welcome, Physicist,Scientist, Podiatrist, Dr ALCHEMIST.
