Instant Deals

Spend any amount of time researching Instant Pots — or multicookers, instant crocks, multi-pots, etc. — and your eyes might start to roll back in your head (trust us, we know). But, whether it's a gift or for yourself, it really comes down to just a few key things to consider. How many people are you feeding and what do you plan to use it for? Are you the type of person who is going to make your own yogurt or porridge, or will you sous vide? Also, how much functionality can your brain handle before it shuts down and you slink back to your trusty pots, pans, and slow cooker? And then, of course, there is price. That last one is where we come in.


We looked at more multicookers than you can shake a soup ladle at to find the best deals available right now, both on name brands and well-reviewed "off" brands. The rest? You'll have to figure that out yourself — as well as whether you just want to say the heck with it and buy an Instant Pot that looks like R2-D2, Chewbacca, or BB-8. Once you've made your mind up, head on over to our 50 Best Cheap Instant Pot Recipes for inspiration.
