If you are one of those people who has yet to jump on the Instant Pot bandwagon, or if you simply need a new one to add to your collection, there’s a Black Friday deal on this must-have kitchen gadget that you need to check out.

For the uninitiated, Instant Pot is a line of pressure cookers that helps you make countless dishes safely and easily. If you cook a lot but have heard the endless praise about Instant Pots online and have been doubtful of their powers to this point, you need to get in on this trend.

Seriously, I got one for Christmas last year and it has completely changed my cooking routine, giving me access to tons of easy-to-make meals that are delicious and require very little cleanup. For people who love clearing up counter space, this mighty tool also acts as a slow cooker and rice steamer, meaning you can move those tools to the basement, where mine have lived for the past year.


The standard 6-quart Instant Pot typically retails for $99.95 but Amazon and Walmart are selling them for $49 on Black Friday. And it comes with everything you need to get cooking right out of the box, including the sealing ring and removable steam rack. If you need the bigger, 8-quart Instant Pot, it’s marked down at an even deeper discount, selling for $64.99 instead of the usual $150!

That’s a serious steal for something that you may end up using on a daily basis.


These also make a great gift for home cooks of all skill levels — especially when paired with one of the many cookbooks made specifically for Instant Pot cooking — and at this price, you can get one for yourself and one for someone else at the regular price of a single Instant Pot!
