Instant Pot Duo
The Duo is Instant Pot’s simplest model, and a great starter machine for delving into the basics of electric pressure cooking. But just because it’s the classic doesn’t mean it’s basic: The Duo is serious multi-use tool that can be used as a pressure cooker, of course, but also for steaming, sautéing, yogurt-making, rice cooking, slow cooking, soup brewing, and even sous-vide cooking. They are also straight forward to clean, with a dishwasher-safe interior pot that's easy to remove once you're finished cooking. It really is a one stop shop at a very affordable price.
Instant Pot Pro
The Instant Pot Pro differentiates itself from other models with its shiny black aesthetic. Its inner pot features easy-to-hold handles for easy removal—and that’s great because you can use it on electric, induction, or ceramic cooktops and in the oven up to 450°F; it’s an even-heating great additional piece of cookware in addition to a part of the machine. This Instant Pot has a large LED display and allows you to save 28 customizable cooking programs. It can do the following: Pressure cook, slow cook, sous vide, sauté, cook rice and grains, sterilize, make yogurt, warm, bake, and steam.
Instant Pot Duo Crisp
This was the Instant Pot model to offer an air-frying function before the company started making separate air-frying ovens; it comes with a second air fryer lid. Of course, you can use the standard lid for all the usual features: pressure cooking, steaming, sautéing, and more—it has a broiling function, which is more than most models offer.
Instant Air Purifier
Surprise! Instant Pot makes air purifiers. No, these models will not make you carnitas in under an hour, but they will remove 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, and allergens from your home thanks to their 3-in-1 HEPA filtration system with plasma ion technology. The deal on the small version of the air purifier, which covered rooms up to 630 square feet, sold out, but you can still get the large version which covers an area up to a whopping 1942 square feet, or, roughly the size if nine New York City apartments.
Instant Pot Vortex Plus
The Vortex Plus is the air-frying-centric Instant Pot. With a six-quart capacity pull-drawer cooking area, it air-fries, roasts, broils, bakes, reheats, and dehydrates. Make all your favorite super crispy foods like french fries and breaded chicken tenders without any extra oil or cleanup. For Prime Day, it’s on sale for 25% off. The leveled up version of Instant’s air fryer, the Instant Omni Pro, is unfortunately no longer on sale for Prime Day. But if you absolutely must have it for to air fry, toast, broil, dehydrate, roast, and slow cook, you can still get it. It’s just more expensive than it was yesterday.
Instant Pot Dual Pod Coffee Maker
Snag a new Instant appliance: their K-cup coffee maker. It's $90 off right now. If K-Cups aren't your thing check out all the other Prime Day coffee maker deals here.
Instant Pot roasting rack
Roasting racks improve an Instant Pot’s roasting and baking functionality by allowing you to elevate your chicken, pork, or vegetables so that air can circulate underneath them (this is particularly important if you have an air frying model of Instant Pot because that air circulation is what makes the air frying work). This Instant Pot–specific design is made of a durable nonstick silicone and can go in the dishwasher. You can also use it as a trivet when you’re not cooking in your Instant Pot.
Instant Pot steamer baskets
Built especially for a three-, six-, or eight-quart Instant Pot, these silicone steamer baskets unlock all the steaming capabilities of your slow cooker/electric pressure cooker. Use one to steam dumplings, boil eggs, and even to make broth: Keep all of the solids in the basket and then lift them out when you’re done without fishing around for tiny bones and scraps. Instant also makes a stainless steel version of these baskets that were on sale earlier during Prime Day. The deal is off, but you can still get one for a reasonable $17.
Instant Pot cake pans
What you aren’t baking all your cakes in an Instant Pot? Why not? They really do a pretty solid job of cake baking and, let you leave your oven off on any particularly hot days when you don’t want to sweat too much in the kitchen. These seven-inch nonstick cake pans—in round and fluted shapes—are compatible with any six- or eight-quart Instant Pot. Use it to bake, steam, store, and reheat.
Instant Pot cheat sheet magnet set
Slap this detailed, comprehensive magnet on your refrigerator and you’ll always have cook times, temperatures, and other details on hand to refer to when using your Instant Pot as a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker—or basically any of its functions. Because memorizing liquid amounts per grain or protein is not worth your time! For Prime Day, it’s a few bucks cheaper.
