(Pocket-lint) – Pressure cookers are a huge hit every holiday season – specifically, Instant Pot pressure cookers – so, of course, retailers are marking them down for Black Friday. And those deals are going live.
With any of these amazing deals, you can not only snag an Instant Pot on the cheap, but also cook up this year’s Christmas feast in a fraction of the time.
The Instant Pot Duo electric pressure cooker has 9 functions and will cook rice, steam vegetables, make yogurt and slow cook. It has an 8QT capacity. It’s now only $79.95 at Amazon.
The Instant Pot Crisp includes an Air Fryer Lid on top of the normal functions, offering 9 modes in total. This is a 6QT option, but the 8QT and 11QT models are also discounted. It’s now $99.95.
Why buy an Instant Pot?
Instant Pot has become one of the most popular choices in kitchens and with good reason. It’s more than just a pressure cooker, giving you access to a range of different cooking methods all from one device. That means you don’t need a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker and steamer – because you can have one device that will do everything.
The combination of pressure and heat can speed up cooking times, so cuts of meat that may take a long time in a slow cooker to get them really tender may cook up to 3x faster in an Instant Pot. There are loads of recipes for Instant Pot too, so you’ll never be short of inspiration for something to eat.
You can also get your meal cooking without having to worry about leaving the stove on. Just make sure you buy the model that will have a capacity that suits the family you’re feeding. If there’s only two of you, you might be fine with going smaller, but if there’s a lot of hungry mouths – or big cuts of meat you want to get into it – you might need something larger.
Instant Pot are also easy to clean when you’re finished.
