Ah, the Instant Pot: The revolutionary time-saving pressure cooker that has all kinds of food lovers changing the way they think about cooking.
Best known for its 14 built-in smart programs, this top-selling multi-purpose cooking appliance is designed to replace up to nine other common kitchen appliances to help you prep your meals with ease — from ‘baking’ desserts to whipping up a roast chicken dinner to cooking chilli and stews in zero time. The Instant Pot, a game-changer for hosting holiday gatherings, even allows you to delay cooking time for up to 24 hours, so your dishes are hot and ready to serve as your guests arrive.
With an average 4.7-star rating on Amazon, the Instant Pot Duo Plus 9-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker is now on sale for Black Friday for 41 per cent off — just $95!
“I use it almost every day and sometimes twice in a day. It’s a great way to steam, pressure cook, and prepares so many different foods and wonderful for leftovers too. I don’t know how I did without it in the past. It’s been a great time saver and so easy to use and clean,” says one five-star review.
While another says, “I have bought five of this exact unit. One for home, one for the vacation condo and three as gifts for family. They make anything more quickly and often [tastier]. Baked beans from hard beans, Chilis, sauces, stock, braised meats are the obvious and easy choices. You have to read the instructions and get a good book as this is a different technique of cooking but our kitchen has never been less messy.”
And with the Instant Pot being immensely popular, you can bet retailers have marked down it down for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Whether you’re thinking about getting one for yourself or gifting it to the busy-body that’s constantly on-the-go, we’ve narrowed it all down to help you score the best deal.
