The announcement includes two new Instant Pot multicookers and a variety of food preparation devices, including Instant Vortex Air Fryers, Instant Ace Cooking and Beverage Blenders, Instant Zest Rice and Grain Cookers, and Instant Omni Toaster Ovens.

Instant Brands leaps from multicookers to the new Instant Air Purifier
Instant air purifier with pet.

While the Instant brand is most known for its popular Instant Pot multicookers and related kitchen appliances, the manufacturer is entering a new field with the Instant Air Purifier, designed to help users remove unwanted contaminants from the air.

The Instant Air Purifier, which is currently available for sale for $240, may seem like an odd move for a brand that exists primarily in the kitchen, but the expansion is timely: Instant designed and tested the Air Purifier specifically for dealing with issues like potential COVID-19 virus particles in the air. It uses a three-in-one filtration system with a HEPA-13 filter, a carbon filter to help remove odors, and an antimicrobial filter to prevent the growth of bacteria in the purifier. An additional plasma ion filter helps to sterilize potential harmful particles and reduce particle numbers.
