There’s nothing like instant gratification. Perhaps that’s what makes the Instant Pot so enticing—still. You’ve seen it all over Pinterest and heard it practically worshipped at book club, and now the kitchen tool that gave the Crock-Pot a run for its money is seriously on sale—like, over 50% on sale.
Thanks to Amazon Prime Day, you can now snag one of the popular pressure cooker models at a deep, deep discount. Right now, the Instant Pot Ultra 3 Quart 10-in-1 multicooker (pictured above) is $50 (down 58 percent from $120), and its deluxe cousin, the Instant Pot Aura Pro 8-Quart Multi-Use Programmable Slow Cooker with Sous Vide is just $70 (down 53 percent from $150). The brand is a consistent bestseller on Amazon in kitchen and dining, so this is kind of a big deal.
But being popular isn’t the Instant Pot’s only bragging right. Depending on the model you choose, the appliance can replace up to ten kitchen appliances, like a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, egg cooker, sauté steamer, warmer, sous vide cooker and sterilizer. (That’s a lot of purpose in one little pot.)
In addition to all of the aforementioned tricks, the Instant Pot features one-touch cooking presets for dishes like soup, braises, cakes, eggs and rice. There’s a handy “delay start function” so you can toss everything into the pot 24 hours in advance and have dinner ready with minimal effort, and because it’s just a single pot, the cleanup is basically nonexistent. It’s also UI certified for safety, so you know it won’t pull a Jack Pearson and set your house on fire. (Kidding, but not actually.)
Whether you’re looking to save time on dinner or reduce post-meal cleanup (or just love a shiny new kitchen appliance as much as we do), you may want to live your best Amazon Prime life and gift yourself with a brand-new Instant Pot. Your stress levels and appetite will thank you.
