There are thousands upon thousands of fantastic deals available during Prime Day each year, but there are a few product categories in particular that people always seem to look for. Examples include TVs, wireless noise cancelling headphones, Amazon’s own hardware devices of course, and Instant Pots. That last one is of particular interest for most shoppers out there. In fact, we can’t think of the last time Prime Day came and went without an Instant Pot model included among Amazon’s five best-selling deals.
If you want a very basic Instant Pot model like the Duo 60, definitely wait for Prime Day because it’ll definitely be on sale at the lowest price of the year. If you want a better model with far more features, however, there are two deals available right now that you definitely need to check out.
First, the Instant Pot Max Pressure Cooker is on sale with a massive $50 discount, dropping it to the lowest price we’ve seen all year. This 9-in-1 multi-use Instant Pot has all the modes you’d get in models like the Duo, but it also has features like built-in sous vide cooking and even a canning mode! If you don’t need quite that much oomph but you still want an Instant Pot with a sous vide feature (trust us, you definitely want sous vide!), definitely check out the Instant Pot 8 Qt Aura Pro, which is on sale for $126.86 if you buy a renewed model. It’s guaranteed to look and function just like a new one, and you have 90 full days to return it if you’re not satisfied.
It always makes sense to get an Instant Pot, especially as the holidays are coming up. You’ll have the opportunity to cook for more people with either of these machines. Plus, you can do it quickly or slowly. This will be your opportunity to boost your cooking skills and try new recipes.
But don’t take our word for it. Here is the product information from the two machines.
