PSA: The Instant Pot Is Absurdly Cheap, Thanks to Amazon Prime Day

If you've been thinking about buying one, there's no better time than Prime Day.

July 15, 2019

The Instant Pot is the Brad Pitt of the food appliance world. Ever since it came on the scene, it's been wildly popular—and just like almost every movie Brad Pitt has ever starred in, never fails to break the box office (so to speak). This multi-cooking wonder, which counts food writers, home cooks, and famous chefs all as fans, remains a consistent best-seller for retailers around the world, especially Amazon.

Which is why it should come as no surprise that the behemoth online retailer has been offering up massive discounts on the Instant Pot this Prime Day: the company's annual shopping holiday, which will last for a glorious two whole days this years, and is happening right now.

So whether you've been dreaming about buying an Instant Pot of your very own or thinking about gifting it someone for a birthday or the holidays (which really aren't that far away), make sure you take advantage of the Amazon Prime Day deals below. And remember: These magical discounts are set to disappear on July 16, when Prime Day ends.

This is Amazon's biggest Instant Pot Prime Day deal so far, so you know the savings are going to be big (as in, "over 50 percent off" big). Not surprisingly, the Duo Plus has all the same bells and whistles of the regular Duo, along with two extra appliance settings and a couple of snazzy features—now for just $55.99. We're talking 15 smart cooking programs just the touch of button away, a 1,000+ recipe app, and the Instant Pot Alexa Skill.

But if you want to buy the Duo Plus in a different size than the classic six-quart, take note: the eight-quart version is slightly discounted at 13% off, for $139.95; the smaller, three-quart version is not on sale at the moment (but we'll let you know if that changes).

Instant Pots should start showing up in yard sales and thrift stores at any moment now. I think I can wait.

Not cool that you're supporting Amazon today just for the sake of SEO to get clicks. Hate to see this site dissolve into clickbait over the past year, but here we are.

I'm weirdly relieved to hear this. I thought it was just me and my cooking tastes changing, but the site is clearly becoming something very different than what it was even just a few short years ago.

Stop encouraging people to cross picket lines. This is absolutely contrary to the ethos of a site that promotes handmade design and valuing labor. Instant Pots are about $50 every Black Friday, for goodness' sake.

The Brad Pitt of appliances???? As in wildly overrated? A fad past its prime??? Not a kind comparison, and to be fair, the old fashioned stove top pressure cookers are faster to use because they reach temp faster and can be depressurized ultra fast in the sink under cool running water so you don’t need to spew steamy smelly air all over your kitchen. (I own both and find the stove top version much closer to “instant” in its performance.)
