How to choose an Instant Pot
With the wide range of Cyber Monday kitchen sales, how do you know which of the best Instant Pots you should buy? You can start with this link to researching what is an Instant Pot. Follow up by reading our experts’ advice on which Instant Pot to buy. The first consideration should be what size to buy because that decision can eliminate some models. Instant Pots are available in three sizes. Three-quart models, sometimes called Minis, are typically considered the right size for one, two, or, possibly, three people. The 6-quart Instant Pots, which are the most popular by far, are suitable for most families with three to five people. If you have a large family or regularly cook for a group of six people or more, an 8-quart Instant Pot model is your best choice.
When you know the size Instant Pot you want, it makes sense to consider the various models. There are feature updates in newer Instant Pot generations, but the more significant difference is in the number of cooking functions. Instant Pots have at least six or seven functions, which means, at a minimum, any Instant Pot can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, rice cooker, and warmer, as well as for sautéing. Other models, which increase in price, have seven to eleven functions, with added capabilities as yogurt making, cake making, sterilizing, and even air frying. Unless you’re looking for a specific cooking function not included in the basic models, such as sous vide cooking with the Instant Pot Max, most home cooks will get a lot of use from a basic model such as the Instant Pot Duo 60.

Are any Instant Pot deals too good to be true?
Cyber Monday Instant Pot deals are great, but check any deal you’re about to buy to be sure it’s the best. Retailers use Cyber Monday to sell older inventory as well as the latest models. Generally speaking, not every Cyber Monday deal is always a great deal, so take some time to do your diligence when shopping. Don’t allow yourself to be pressured by countdown timers or other techniques for fast sales. One thing about Instant Pots that is different than with many products, is that even if a retailer is selling an inventory of some of the earliest models, those were the appliances that won the hearts and loyalty of cooks around the world, so if the price is right, there’s no compelling reason to hesitate.
