When you buy a cookbook, the chances are you don't spend much time looking at the cover compared with the recipes inside. But while browsing Amazon, a few Twitter users noticed just how weird cook book covers are. Specifically, the covers for a series of books called 'Instant Pot For Now.' Which appear to be a series of recipe books to go alongside a pressure cooker.
I don't think you're helping much, stock photo husband.
And yes, there are literally dozens of these out there...
Here's a breakdown by one Twitter user...
I'm so confused. Is this...?— 🥧 SUZANNE 🥧 (@425suzanne) January 2, 2018
a) "we're so in love we have to do EVERYTHING together"
b) hapless lass needs to be taught how to cut a pepper
c) demo of most awkward way to assist in pepper cutting
d) supposed to make me want to buy the book pic.twitter.com/s8OKlawLjP
Two is a crowd.
Cutting peppers is hard, we guess.
Now's not the time.
Just let her cut vegetables in peace!
This one is surprisingly normal...
This one is like an optical illusion.

Instant Pot for Two recipe covers are back in my dang Amazon page somehow. 🙃
I had to stare hard at this one to figure out
1) if there was an extra hand in the photo
2) who was holding the knife
and wondering if this pic was also used for a tooth whitening ad. pic.twitter.com/6CAIb3GErL
Does it really take two people to make a salad?
Whoa. Finally! I was getting worried POC didn't use #InstantPot. This is pretty much the least weird cover photo too. Although something in her smile says "Kelly - don't ever ask me to do a favor for your photography internship again." pic.twitter.com/bwCYWBi3nM— 🥧 SUZANNE 🥧 (@425suzanne) January 20, 2018
Unsurprisingly, social media was in hysterics.
Oh that’s why some of my recipes don’t come out exactly right, I don’t cook with a man standing over me— Felicia (@Felicious1908) January 22, 2018
Cooking is hard.
