Hitting the sweet spot between affordability and features, the Duo80 is our pick as the best Instant Pot. It carries the functionalities of seven kitchen appliances in one: Pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saute pan, yogurt maker, and warmer. It also has a microprocessor that controls 10 programs so you can optimize cooking for a broad range of meals.

With an 8-quart pot, this model makes it convenient for you to cook dishes for large groups. You can easily fit a whole chicken, prepare a large roast or brown three to four pounds of frozen ground beef. An 8-inch springform pan and some 9-inch round pans will also fit in, allowing you to whip up desserts in a breeze.


Instant Pot Lux60 V3, 6-Quart — $65, was $99

The most affordable Instant Pot in this roundup is the Lux60. As a baseline model, it makes an ideal pick for someone trying out the brand for the first time. Don’t take it as a sign of skimpy features, though. With six different cooking functions and 10 built-in programs, it’s still very much capable of cooking a wide variety of meals.

With a third-generation microprocessor inside, the Instant Pot Lux60 enables up to 240 minutes of pressure cooking with up to 24-hour start delay. This means you can pre-program the machine and come home to a ready-to-eat meal.


Instant Pot Ultra, 6-Quart — $109, was $159

Something with richer features is the Ultra model. With a whopping 10 functions — pressure cooker, saute/searing pan, slow cooker, rice/porridge cooker, cake maker, egg cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, sterilizer, and warmer — this Instant Pot covers just about anything you might want to do in the kitchen. This model has a central dial that allows for easy selections of programs and adjustments of settings.

This device is also outfitted with a microprocessor to help ensure the perfect cook every time. It helps monitor the temperature and pressure all while adjusting the intensity accordingly. Its mid-sized 6-quart pot is ideal for cooking dishes for a family of four.


Instant Pot Duo Nova, 8-Quart — $100, was $120

One of the new models in the Instant Pot lineup released last month is the Duo Nova. Like the Duo, it combines seven kitchen devices in one. It also has 14 different smart programs, allowing you to cook anything — from soup and whole chicken to dessert — just the way you like it.

What really makes the Duo Nova stand out is the lid. When you forget to set the sealing valve in place, it will automatically set to seal in pressure. The lid is also built with a steam release button, making it easier and (burn-free) for you to perform a manual pressure release.


Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi, 6-Quart — $121, was $150

As the “smart” moniker suggests, this Instant Pot is equipped with smart functionalities. It’s the first multi-use programmable cooker that can be controlled through Alexa, your tablet, or your phone. This conveniently allows you to schedule, adjust, and monitor the progress of your means wherever you are.

A true multicooker, this Instant Pot carries several cooking functions plus 13 smart programs. You can easily select among pre-programmed options for optimal cooking of a wide array of dishes. Outfitted with temperature and pressure settings, this smart Instant Pot lets you prepare juicy meals two to three times faster than the traditional methods.

Cyber Monday deal gets you Amazon Music Unlimited for free

Music lovers considering streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music should definitely take a look at Amazon Music Unlimited, mostly because you can get it for free. Well, sort of. For Cyber Monday, you can get three months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free, before it goes back to its original pricing. That may not seem like much, but given that Amazon increased the cost of its Music Unlimited plans, it's a big win. You could also get an extra month for free, so four in total, if you also grab one of a select number of Amazon Echo Devices, so that's also an option.
Get 3 months FREE of Amazon Music Unlimited

With an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription you get access to more than 100 million songs in high definition and millions of songs in Ultra HD. Amazon Music Unlimited is a great subscription for audiophiles to consider, as it puts a lot of emphasis on high-quality audio. It has a growing catalog of music mastered in Dolby Atmos and 360 Reality Audio. But it also has thousands of expertly crafted stations and playlists for people just trying to find some new music. In this regard Amazon Music Unlimited could be seen as similar to music streaming services like Apple Music or Spotify, as it also comes with access to podcasts. This Cyber Monday deal gets you three free months of access where Amazon regularly offers just one. After the three months is up Amazon Music Unlimited reverts to $11 per month or $10 per month for Prime members, so you’ll need to remember to cancel if you don’t want to keep it as a paid service.
