If you hear someone using superlatives to describe a countertop appliance, there’s a good bet they’re talking about the Instant Pot multi-cooker. This souped-up pressure-cooker inspires a level of fandom that’s practically unheard-of in the realm of kitchen gadgets.
Instant Pot’s flagship line is its seven-function DUO. Shoppers had the chance to snag the eight-quart DUO80 for just $82 at Amazon on Black Friday 2017, and this model was a top seller on Amazon Prime Day last year when it was marked down to $90.
We’re eagerly awaiting the announcement of this year’s Amazon Prime Day deals, as well as the debut of the new Instant Pot Max. But if you can’t bear to wait, there’s an amazing deal happening right now on the Instant Pot’s top-of-the-line Ultra model.
Free delivery is easy to come by too. You can get free shipping on the Instant Pot Ultra or any purchase over $59 at Sur la Table with the promo code SHIPFREE.
Although Instant Pot’s Facebook community has an astonishing 1.4 million members (up about half a million in just the past six months) who swap recipes and exchange cooking tips, you might also want to pick up an Instant Pot cookbook or two for recipes and inspiration.
One that comes highly recommended is Instant Pot Obsession: The Ultimate Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook for Cooking Everything Fast. It covers everything from main courses and desserts to breakfasts and side dishes, and readers appreciate the charts and reference materials it covers.
Since it’s getting to be that time of year when you probably don’t want to turn your oven on, it could be worth dropping about $100 and keeping your kitchen cool this summer.
