Whether you’re a chef or a novice cook, an Instant Pot would enable you to make delicious homecooked meals effortlessly and in no time at all. And since you’ll just be using one pot, you wouldn’t have to worry about limited counter space or a tedious cleanup after. To spice things up, even more, Amazon cooks up to $50 in discounts on the Instant Pot Max or Duo 80.
— $150 ($50 off)
The Max, like any other model from Instant Pot, can combine quite a few kitchen appliances. You’ll just as instantly get nine functions in one device along with eight built-in programs. But with its ability to reach a higher pressure level of up to 15 psi on max mode, you don’t only get to cook faster, you’ll also be able to do home pressure canning as much as you can ferment, simmer, slow cook, sear, and boil. And to help you get started, the Instant Pot app grants you access to over a thousand recipes, personalized grocery lists, and save your favorites.
This six-quart multicooker also sets itself apart with NutriBoost technology that adds movements or a boiling motion to the food during pressure cooking. This sort of auto-stirring function breaks down cells to ensure maximum extraction of flavor, resulting in enhanced food taste and texture. It also comes with UL-certified 13 proven safety mechanisms including the new automated venting and lid lock as well as accurate temperature control for sous vide cooking. You can even leave it cooking and trust that your house wouldn’t get burned down.
Tinkering with this multicooker won’t give you any trouble. Its large touchscreen and dial make it easy to set and view changes you made for time, temperature, pressure level, delay start, and warm. And with altitude adjustment, you can eliminate the guesswork from your recipe conversion and yield a more precise cooking time.
It typically sells for $200, but Amazon’s 25% price cut makes it available for only $150. An additional $50 discount can be applied when you’re approved for an Amazon Rewards Visa card.

When someone speaks of Instant Pot, chances are the Duo is what comes into mind. The Duo 80 being the eight-quart variant would normally have enough servings to feed 8 to 12 people. Although more affordable than the Max, the most popular and best-selling 7-in-1 multicooker is capable of delivering the same functionalities of a rice cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, saute pan, and warmer. And with 14 preset programs, you’ll undoubtedly have the means to prepare a variety of dishes with a touch of a button while you can always refer to the Instant Pot app for more ideas or tips.
Cooking in an Instant Pot can be synonymous with cooking in a fully sealed container. With dual pressure settings, you’ll be able to cut your time in the kitchen by 70% and retain all the food’s flavors, nutrients, and mouthwatering aromas intact. Consistent results are then guaranteed with the latest third generation microprocessor that enables the Duo80 to monitor pressure and temperature, keep time, and adjust heat intensity while its three-ply bottom ensures that heat is evenly distributed. And with the option to delay start up to 24 hours plus the fact that it automatically switches to warm once the cooking cycle is done, you can savor every bite as hot, fresh, and as ready as you are.
As promised, cleaning up is hassle-free with dishwasher-safe parts and accessories. Its brushed stainless steel exterior is fingerprint-resistant too so you can simply wipe it down from time to time. Peace of mind is ensured with more than 10 integrated safety features that passed the stringent UL certification.
