Amazon’s Prime Day event is officially here, offering two days of deals on everything from DNA test kits, fitness products, toys, Apple iPads and watches and more. You’ll also find deals on kitchen items, including the popular Instant Pot.
If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you might want to take the advice of the hundreds of thousands of people who got one last Prime Day and pick one up this year. Last year, Amazon reportedly sold 300,000 Instant Pots, making it the U.S.’s most popular Prime Day item in 2018.
Why such love for a kitchen gadget? It will definitely make weeknight dinners easier, as you can make tons of different foods, including everything from rice and eggs to desert, entire meals and yes, even wine! Essentially, an Instant Pot can easily replace your slow cooker, but also serves as a pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, warmer and will even sauté or brown food and vegetables.
If you’re ready to jump on the Instant Pot bandwagon, the best deal you’ll find this Prime Day is on the Instant Pot DUO Plus 60. This 6-quart Instant Pot replaces up to nine appliances — along with being a pressure cooker, slow cooker and rice cooker, it can also make yogurt, eggs, saute, steam, warm and sterilize. With a list price of $129, you can get it right now for $55.99, a savings of 57%.
The Instant Pot DUO Plus 60 also features 15 one-touch cooking presets for quicker cooking: soup/broth, meat/stew, bean/chili, cake, egg, slow cook, saute/simmer, rice cook, multigrain, porridge, steam, sterilize, yogurt, keep warm and pressure cook. The gadget cooks up to 70% faster and cleans up easily, plus has a fingerprint-resistant stainless steel lid. Components and accessories are also dishwasher safe, including the inner pot, steam rack with handles, serving spoon, soup spoon and measuring cup.
It features 10 safety mechanisms as well, so you can have peace of mind while the Instant Pot is doing your meal prep for you.
If this Instant Pot isn’t the one for you, take a look at our list of the best Instant Pots, as determined by our experts and top expert reviews. While the Instant Pot DUO Plus does make our list, the Instant Pot DUO is actually our top choice based on its affordability and versatility. It is also currently $55, though it is not as great of savings as the DUO Plus, as the DUO is regularly only $99 and is only 7-in-1 use, not 9-in-1.
