This discounted Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker is a great Instant Pot alternative

Cooking with a pressure cooker is one of the best ways to quickly prepare delicious meals that would normally take longer and require multiple pots and pans — which is why the Instant Pot became instantly popular. It’s easy to see why there’s such hype centered around the kitchen device. Even best-selling cooking author Chrissy Tiegen tweeted that she might have converted into a slow cooker herself — and we can’t blame her. If you’ve been wanting to start experimenting with your own meals, Amazon is discounting the Ninja Instant Cooker and the Ninja Foodi.

While the Instant Pot is usually the first thing that comes to mind when you hear about programmable pressure cookers, these Ninja products prove that it’s not the only name in town. Ninja makes some of the best Instant Pot alternatives on the market right now. So if you’re thinking about picking up an all-in-one multicooker, these deals make it a great time to do so.
