The Instant Pot 8-quart Aura Pro Multi-cooker is the only Instant Pot that comes with a built-in sous vide function — and it rarely goes on sale.

That all changes right now because for a limited time, Amazon has the Instant Pot Aura Pro on sale for $140, down from $150. While we don’t know how long this sale will last, our advice is to check it out before the deal disappears.

“My everyday cooking pot! This is the most useful and versatile cooking item I own,” writes one of more than 6,000 five-star reviewers. “I use it more for searing and roasting than as a slow cooker, but it works great for that as well! This makes wonderful cakes, bread and pizza also... I even take this on trips and use it while on-grid camping or traveling.”

And according to the Amazon description, the Aura Pro model is meant to replace 11 “commonly used kitchen appliances” and has functions for searing, baking, slow cooking, steaming and roasting to name a few.

While it does not pressure-cook, the Aura Pro boasts microprocessor technology to set and maintain exact cooking time and temperature. That precision works with the built-in sous vide function, which has a temperature range from 104 to 194 degrees, making this model a standout in the Instant Pot family.

“This is a much easier option and it cooks a lot more evenly,” shares a satisfied Amazon shopper. “I made steaks first and they came out perfectly. Then I did sous vide tamales, basically just using parchment paper instead of husks and then vacuum sealing them before submersing in temp controlled water. It really kept the flavor in that is usually lost when steaming.”

Take advantage of the rare savings and head to Amazon to score the Instant Pot 8-quart Aura Pro Multicooker.

Continued the shopper: “This device is perfect for what I needed and it's much easier than my old method of immersion cooking. The stainless steel is so much easier to clean than my old non-stick slow cooker.”
