- Instant Pot is the hottest multi-cooker brand in the business, but you won’t soon forget the name CHEF iQ once you’ve seen the CHEF iQ Smart Cooker in action.
- This fantastic multi-function electric cooker bundles everything people love about Instant Pots with intelligent new features that you can’t find on similar models.
- There’s a rare discount at Amazon right now on the Smart Cooker, so it’s the perfect time to see what all the fuss is about.
If I think back, I can still remember how blown away I was when I got my first Instant Pot and began using it in place of a traditional pressure cooker. It was so eye-opening… and I was able to experience that feeling all over again last year when I was sent a new CHEF iQ Smart Cooker to test. Now that I’ve been using it for months and I have experienced firsthand how much better the cooking experience is when you add in novel features and app connectivity, I don’t see myself ever going back to my old Instant Pot.
The CHEF iQ Smart Cooker appears at first glance to be yet another Instant Pot knockoff that will never measure up to the original. Once you turn it on for the first time, however, you can tell right away that the Smart Cooker is something else entirely. Yes, it looks like an Instant Pot. And yes, it offers plenty of different cooking modes like an Instant Pot. But this fantastic kitchen tool is actually so much more — it’s the next logical step in the evolution of electric multi-cookers.Today's Top Deal Amazon just kicked off a massive new sale — see all the best deals right here!

Chefman’s new Smart Cooker is about so much more than just cooking a meal after you’ve prepped the ingredients and dumped them into the inner pot. This brilliant device connects to the CHEF iQ app and walks you through each step of the process when you’re preparing the meal, from start to finish. These guided recipes are wonderfully easy to follow, just like your favorite YouTube chef tutorials. But these are interactive — the CHEF iQ Smart Cooker will even weigh liquid and dry ingredients as you add each one to the pot, ensuring that you get the perfect result each and every time.
There are more than 300 cooking presets in the Smart Cooker and more than 1,000 in the app. It also comes with everything you need to use each and every one. This brilliant device blew me away the very first time I used it, and I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to go back to my Instant Pot.
