While spending time at home over the past year, more and more people began considering the air quality of the spaces where they spend the most time. In 2020, the market for air purifiers increased by 57%, according to a report from Verify Markets, and the trend will continue to grow over the next two years.

While there are mixed reviews on if air purifiers truly help eliminate pollutants, viruses and allergens in the air, they can be beneficial in certain spaces of the home. However, it’s important to ensure you have the correct size of air purifier for the space.

The latest air purifier to hit the market happens to be from none other than the makers of the Instant Pot, marking the company’s first-ever appliance outside of kitchenware.

The new Instant Air Purifier devices are the first “products independently lab-tested to remove 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, from treated air,” according to a press release about Instant Air.

Available in two sizes for both smaller and larger rooms and in two colors, the Instant Air Purifier helps remove 99.9% of ultra-fine particles, including viruses, bacteria and allergens from treated air.

With the help of a three-in-one filtration system made of a HEPA-13 filter, a carbon filter layer to reduce unpleasant odors and an antimicrobial coating to prevent bacterial growth and filter degradation, the Instant Air is an air purifier that can help clean your air in a matter of minutes.

Not only does this new air purifier quickly and efficiently clean the air, but it’s also equipped with sensors that continually monitor the air quality and automatically adjust the fan speed when air quality is decreasing.

While Instant released three versions of Instant Air, only two are available on Amazon right now. The smaller device works on rooms of up to 126 square feet, and the larger device works on up to 338 square feet.

If you’ve been waiting for the right air purifier for you, Instant Air is one of the best new options available, and you can shop both of its sizes below.
