Prime Day is such an all-encompassing retail event that the term has come to include more than just the annual monster sale on Amazon. The spectacular annual sales have also spawned many knock-off savings events like Walmart̵
The convergence of these three main sales brings great deals to the Instant Pot and Instant Pot-copycat brands this week. Since when is it definitely pressure cooker season, we scoured the sales to find the best discounts on Instant Pots, slow cookers and other multicookers. So far we have found a fileon Walmart’s website and a sleek, black and silver available online from Target, among other offers. We will update this story with more Amazon Prime Day offers as they become available.
This is as inexpensive as you will find any multicooker, with all the features of an Instant Pot but for around half the price. The Insignia scores high in verified purchase reviews on Best Buy and has six quarters of cooking capacity, which is more than enough to handle easy weekly dinners for a family of four.
Best known for its slow cookers, Crock-Pot now has its own version of the Instant Pot and scores extremely high in Target verified purchase reviews. Now it’s down to $ 50. The Express does everything your standard Instant Pot does, including pressure cook, slow cook, heat, steam, saute and more. If you are looking for a sleek, black and silver aesthetic, this is definitely your choice.
For a slimmer Instant Pot, the 6-quart Lux is also on sale, down to just $ 59 and available in red or navy blue. The 6-quart Lux features 12 cooking programs and a programmable timer. Free two-day shipping is included.
This multicooker does not have the Instant Pot’s characteristic pressure cooking function, but it does slow cook, sear and brown, steam, bake, roast and heat. It has a full 6 quart cooking capacity and a sleek, modern look.
Instant Pot Duo Crisp is probably the most versatile of the entire line as the crunchy lid turns your multicooker into an air fryer. Make tender, flavorful meats stewed on low and then air-fry a batch of chicken wings or French fries in seconds, or make some saggy pork chops and finish with the lid of the air fryer for a crisp, crunchy exterior.
