The medium-sized, ten-in-one Instant Pot Ultra is even cheaper than the smaller model right now.
If you've been sitting on the fence about picking up an Instant Pot—the multi-use cooker that replaces a Crock Pot, pressure cooker, steamer, rice maker, and sterilizer, among many other things—Amazon may have just the push over to the "go for it" side you've been waiting for. As part of its daily deals, the online retailer just dropped the price of the six-quart model of the Instant Pot Ultra by $40.
That's right, the Instant Pot Ultra six-quart ten-in-one cooker that usually retails for $150 is now just $110 (that's over 25 percent off) plus there's free shipping for Prime members, of course. If you've been keeping track of the going rate for Instant Pots, you'll know that that's not only a huge savings on this model, it also beats the price on the cooker that's only half its size, as the three-quart Instant Pot Ultra retails for $120. It's not clear how long this sale will last, but it is listed under the site's Mother's Day deals so hopefully, you don't miss it.
Instant Pots have become a go-to tool for many home cooks, especially those using Pinterest and YouTube to source their recipe inspirations. But chefs are coming on board the Instant Pot train, too. Rick Bayliss uses his to make risotto and says that a pressure cooker is the easiest way to make rich stock in under two hours. The New York Times' Melissa Clark even penned an entire cookbook full of recipes that take advantage of the Instant Pot's many functions. Check her out with our own Justin Chapple using the cooker in the all-pimento cheese-themed episode of Mad Genius Live.
But if a six-quart cooker does seem big enough for the all parties plan on throwing, the all ribs you plan on cooking, all the yogurt you plan on making, or all the wine you plan on drinking (yes, people have made wine in their Instant Pots), then you've got the larger, eight-quart option still available to you at $180.
