Third Prize

3 Paperback copies of Epic Vegan Instant Pot Cooking (3 winners)



We weren’t very excited about doing a giveaway where someone just has to input an email address or guess a number. We want something a little more engaging.

We thought a video submission would be an excellent way to get people more invested and put some effort in to winning something as amazing as an Instant Pot!

We also wanted a funny theme so we asked our followers for one… we decided on the theme “Things you would do with all the extra time you’d have if you had an Instant Pot.” This is where you get to be really creative and think of funny things you would do with the extra time you’d have if you had an Instant Pot.

So here are the instructions to follow:

  1. Think of funny things you would do if you had extra time because you now have an Instant Pot.
  2. Record yourself doing those things using your cell phone or camera. Edit it in to a funny short video (1 to 3 minutes long). You can use music, voice overs, etc. Whatever you can think of to make it funny and creative, DO THAT! If you have a Mac you can use iMovie, if you have a PC, you can use Windows Movie Maker.
  3. Once the video is finished, upload it to YouTube.
  4. Send us an email – with a link to the video you’ve uploaded on YouTube. Also in the email include which prize you want to win. Some people may already have an Instant Pot and just want the 2nd or 3rd prize. When you enter for each respective prize, you can only win that prize. For example, if one person enters to win the 2nd prize, they will win it by default because they were the only one to submit a video for that prize.
  5. Hannah, Jimmy and Derek will view the videos and decide  the winners and email them on Thursday March 10th.
  6. The new book will be released on March 11th.

The final day for entry will be March 9th at 11:59PM EST. You can also enter from wherever you live in the world. The books can be shipped anywhere but the Instant Pot may not work in your respective country because of the voltage difference. They work at 120V. Keep that in mind as well.

Here is an example video below. Took me about 10 minutes to record everything and edited it in 10 minutes on my phone. You could get a lot fancier with Emojis, text, sound, etc.

We think this will be a lot of fun and we will showcase the winner’s videos on Life Inside A Box. If you have any questions, just leave a comment below!

Wishing you all the best,

Hannah & Derek

  1. como on!!!!! make it simple, let the luck decided the name of the winner. dont´t ansk to make videos.

    1. I would love for someone to be rewarded by working hard and doing something creative instead of just getting something for putting in an email in to a box

    1. Everyone does have this capability. Anyone can record a video that they have put some thought in to and upload it to YouTube.

  2. Why are people being negative in the comments? This seems so fun and, at the very least, much more engaging! I’m excited!

    1. Hey Katie – not being negative. Just saying we have nothing to record videos on so it was too bad. I think it’s very create. Just can’t participate, that’s all.

  3. Great idea!
    I’m so creative I’d be sleeping for three minutes in the video! Or eating! That seems to be the obvious thing to do if I had a cool cooker like that.

  4. I can’t wait to do this! Should I make a YouTube account to submit the video?? I won’t have any subscribers or anything but I’ll have the video uploaded, Is that okay?

  5. Hey, brilliant idea ! Will definitely be submitting a video ❤ I was just wondering would it be possible for you to purchase the Instant Pot from the Amazon website in the winner’s country of origin so it’s in the same voltage or have you already purchased it ? No worries if not was just wondering :* x

  6. It’s a great idea! You two are just amazing i love your videos they are never boring and this is an awesome giveaway!! 🙂
    Greetings from Quebec, Canada 🙂

  7. Aww damn, the instant pot won’t work in Australia 🙁 I wonder if I can get one for a 240 voltage. I was thinking up epic ideas for my video too! Good luck to everyone! 🙂

  8. So 1 video for one prize? If I enter I’m all the prizes I would need 3 videos? Or can u only enter 1 for 1 prize?

  9. Just sent my video off. 🙂 I hope you guys like it. I am now going to start making youtube videos as I loved doing this so much!

  10. just finished editing my video! Is it ok that its 3 minutes and 10 seconds long? I hope its appropriate lol

      1. Is it okay if I submit it tomorrow? Will u not pick last minute entry’s or do they have same chance?

  11. Challenge accepted. I’ve never made an edited video but it’s time to learn. I look forward to brainstorming awesome ideas.

  12. Hi Hannah and Derek,

    Will your Epic Vegan Instant Pot Cooking book be available to purchase from Amazon UK? I live in the UK and really want a physical copy of the book 🙂
