Thinking of buying an Instant Pot on Prime Day? Here’s why you should


The answer to this question is an emphatic yes! There's no better time to buy an Instant Pot than on Amazon Prime Day. I bought mine years ago on Prime Day and I'm so glad I did. Usually, Instant Pots cost as much as $80, but with some of them selling for as low as $50, it's the perfect time to buy a second Pot (a 3-quart for side dishes, perhaps), grab one for a holiday gift, or upgrade yours to a newer model.

One thing to keep in mind is that pricing goes up and down pretty often on Instant Pots during Prime Day, so if you see a top Pot on sale for a ridiculously good deal, grab it ASAP before it's gone.

You can get an Instant Pot in three main sizes (3-quart, 6-quart, and 8-quart) with varying features, improved button designs, fun colors, and special functions. The great thing about the Instant Pot is that it appeals to various people, from beginner cooks to adventurous aspiring chefs, busy families, and singles or couples looking for easy meals.

After much excitement to its lead-up, Prime Day deals is finally here and the deals are a-plenty. Among the many popular items you can buy at deep discounts is one that I'm particularly excited about, the Instant Pot multicooker. Whether you're upgrading your own, getting one for the first time, or gifting one to someone special, now is the time to buy. The Instant Pot is rarely, if ever, offered for as low a price as it is on Prime Day.

The Instant Pot has become a staple in many households thanks to its ability to cook food that would normally take hours or complex processes in a fraction of the time. Primarily a pressure cooker, it also has one-touch buttons for making everything from rice to chili, homemade boxed cakes, porridge, soups, and stews. Some models even have a function for making homemade yogurt. In many cases, you can just set and forget or, as Instant Pot fans like to say, "dump and go." When the food is done, the Pot can keep it warm until you're ready.

One of the newer models is the Instant Pot Duo Nova 7-in-1, which is deemed the ideal model for beginner cooks. It has all of the features you'd need, along with a new smart lid that automatically seals.

However, the previous-generation Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 still remains a popular option, and is Amazon's top bestseller in this category. It has seven different cooking modes, including slow cook, saute, and steam, as well as that aforementioned yogurt making mode.

It might seem a bit early to start holiday shopping, and it's tempting to want to wait until Black Friday. But Prime Day Instant Pot deals are pretty hot, and it's worth investing now, whether it's a gift for yourself or a special someone. And there are some really unique models worth considering.

Prime Day is the best time to get on the Instant Pot bandwagon

As mentioned, I bought my Instant Pot years ago on Prime Day. A few years later, I bought another one as a surprise gift for a friend, again, waiting until Prime Day (which coincidentally falls right before her birthday) to grab it because I knew that's when I would be able to find the best price. It's the best time of year to browse the various models, find ones that are being offered for deep discounts, and grab one before the deal is gone.

Which ones are among the best options? Here's a look at various versions of the Instant Pot, with a model to suit every type of kitchen and cook.

Don't wait until Black Friday

Historically, when it comes to shopping for the best deals, Black Friday is the day (rather, week) when you'll find them. But Amazon's Prime Day has quickly become one of the most exciting shopping days of the year. And the timing couldn't be better for those who like to get a jump start on their holiday shopping.

Having bought not one, but two Instant Pots, during Prime Day over the years, and continually following the prices of the most popular models, I can confidently say that you'll find some of the best deals for them on Prime Day. That goes, by the way, not only for various Pots of all sizes, but other small appliances from the brand, too, that you might want to invest in to expand your selection and experiment with new methods of cooking.

After looking through all of the great Instant Pot deals, make sure to see the rest of the deals for Prime Day 2020. Happy shopping!
