the Instant pot is the Swiss army knife of the kitchen. It is an all-in-one appliance that is easy to use and offers a range of cooking options. Several models are on sale for Amazon Prime Day, and perhaps the best choice for most people is the Three-Quarter Nova Instant Pot Duo, which boils down to $ 50 from the standard price of $ 80.
This is a seven-in-one multicooker that offers a range of cooking functions with just the push of a button. It is a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a steamer, a sauté pan, a plate warmer and a yogurt maker.
The Duo Nova’s lid closes automatically, while a microprocessor tracks and adjusts pressure, temperature, time and heat. According to Instant Pot, this helps the device cook food up to 70% faster than other methods while providing consistent results. There are several safety features for peace of mind and the three quart size is large enough to prepare a meal for two.
If the Nova Duo is a little too small for your needs, consider the six-quart Instant Pot Duo Plus nine-in-one, which went from $ 120 to $ 55 for the first day. In addition to all of the Duo Nova’s cooking functions, the Duo Plus adds vacuum and sterilizer options.
