If you’re familiar with cooking gadgets, you’ve surely heard about the Instant Pot. It’s one of the more versatile cooking devices you can have in your kitchen, and it has amassed a bit of a cult following in recent years. If you want to get on board, Amazon Prime Day is a good time to do so — the Instant Pot Ultra 3 is on sale, down from its regular price of $119 to an all-time low of $50.
This is the best deal out of the many different Instant Pot models we’ve seen for Prime Day this year. The Ultra combines 10 different features into one: Pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, cake maker, egg cooker, sauté, steamer, warmer and sterilizer. The pressure cooker feature is probably the biggest draw, though — as a colleague of mine said, “imagine having amazing barbacoa tacos in an hour instead of eight.” A compelling case, indeed. And the fact that it’s an electric appliance rather than a stovetop-based pressure cooker means you don’t need to keep an constant watch on it.
One thing to note is that this deal is specifically for the three-quart version, making it a better option for smaller households. It’s also an inexpensive way to see if the Instant Pot craze is right for you. And if you’d prefer a larger cooker, we’ll be keeping an eye out for any other notable Instant Pot deals we see during Prime Day, as well.
