If you’ve upped the ante on your home cooking game, there’s never been a better time to invest in a new gadget, thanks to the best Instant Pot deal you’ll find for months. As part of Amazon Prime Day 2021, buyers can save over 50%—a rare, rare deal—off this kitchen must-have.
For the unenlightened, here’s what makes Instant Pots so essential: They do it all (and fast). Really. This nine-in-one appliance—which won’t command too much of your precious counter space—can steam and sauté vegetables, cook rice to perfection, make oatmeal and grains, whip up yogurt, sous vide meat, make cake, and even sterilize items. (Perhaps this last feature doesn’t seem necessary—but just ask any new parent, and they’ll tell you how useful it is.) But the best part? Instant Pots take the guesswork (and waiting) out of slow cooking classic comfort dishes—think beef stew, bolognese sauce, and homemade chicken stock.
Instant Pots also require minimal cleanup, since so many Instant Pot recipes can all be made directly in the cooker—no additional pots and pans needed. Plus, this model has fingerprint-resistant stainless steel sides, and comes with a dishwasher-safe lid and inner pot, so there’s no need to waste time scrubbing at the kitchen sink.
If we haven’t sold you yet, just know that an Instant Pot sale like this doesn’t come around often or at such a steep discount. Prime Day only lasts June 21 and 22, so you’ll want to move fast (on picking the Instant Pot up, as well as a bevy of the other best smart home deals out there). With social calendars filling up, the ability to easily whip up a quick and nutritious meal, is more appealing than ever. Consider your summer dinners—done.
