There’s no doubting that the Instant Pot has become one of the most sought-after small appliances of the last few years.
While major shopping holidays like Black Friday and Cyber Monday are typically known for amazing Instant Pot deals, you can score an early discount thanks to Amazon Prime Day’s current Instant Pot deals.
From now until the end of Prime Day on October 14, you can score major deals on select Instant Pot models, including 58 percent off the Instant Pot Ultra, 53 percent off the Instant Pot Aura Pro (which includes a built-in sous vide) and 33 percent off the Instant Pot Duo Crisp (which includes an air fryer).
Shop: Instant Pot Ultra 3-Quart 10-in-1 Multi- Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, $49.99 (Orig. $119.95)
Shop: Instant Pot 8-Quart Aura Pro Slow Cooker with Sous Vide, $69.99 (Orig. $149.95)
Shop: Instant Pot Duo Crisp Pressure Cooker 11-in-1 with Air Fryer, $119.99 (Orig. $179.95)
To say the Instant Pot is the super hero of appliances is an understatement. The cult-favorite appliance has racked up more than 108,000 reviews and for good reason.
While there are multiple Instant Pot models that vary in size, each one offers seven or more functions in one. The one-touch cooking presets allow you to pressure cook, sauté or sear, slow cook, steam, make yogurt and rice and act as a food warmer — all in one.
But if you’re wondering which Instant Pot model you should snag during Prime Day, you’ll want to note the key differences between them.
If you need to save space in a small kitchen but want all the functions of an Instant Pot, the Instant Pot Ultra Mini is a great option, since it’s small in size yet performs all of the same cooking methods of the orignal model.
You can consider the Instant Pot Aura Pro as the next step up when it comes to slow cooking. While it has a more modern, oval design versus the traditional round look of the Instant Pot, the main cooking difference here is that the Aura Pro is a slower cooker, but it’s not a pressure cooker — so it doesn’t reach those same higher-than-boiling temperatures that can be achieved when pressure cooking.
And for those who want to test out air frying when it comes to making veggies or French fries, the Instant Pot Duo Crisp will be your best bet. Not only does this model come with a built-in air fryer, but you’ll also receive additional air fryer accessories. You get the multi-level air fryer basket for dehydrating, a boiler tray to help with air flow and a protective pad for countertop use.
If you haven’t jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon yet, now’s the time to invest in the appliance that can literally up your cooking game with just the touch of a button. Plus, there’s now hundreds of easy recipes you can make with an Instant Pot.
