We’re constantly amazed by the magic of the Instant Pot. A whole slew of appliances in one machine that sits proudly on your countertop, always prepared to help you whip up next-level meals in no time.
Up until now, Instant Pot’s best-selling models have been six-in-one and seven-in-one units, but a new powerhouse is in town—the Instant Pot Aura—and this one wraps nine appliances into one countertop superstar. Better yet, the Instant Pot Aura 9-in-1 is more than 50 percent off on Amazon all day, so you can invest in this trusty dinnertime sidekick for just 60 bucks!
With an Instant Pot Aura 9-in-1, you’ll be saving on time, energy, and a whole lot of cabinet and countertop space. This device can roast, stew, bake, steam, slow cook, sear/sauté, cook rice, make yogurt, ferment, and and keep food warm. In other words, you can make chicken soup and yogurt in the same appliance you use to bake cookies and slow cook a perfect brisket.
It holds 6 quarts of ingredients, so you can easily make dinner for the whole family or a batch of pasta sauce to last the whole month. The device is programmable, too, so you can schedule it to start cooking a whole 24 hours in advance. Schedule it the night before, and rest easy knowing it will start cooking while you’re still at work. If you’re not home in time, the Instant Pot Aura keeps your food warm until you arrive.
The Instant Pot Aura is smart enough to regulate temperature on its own, too—and while you can manually set the temperature if you want, you don’t have to. The machine is designed to churn out perfect results with very little guidance. And by very little guidance, we mean by pushing one button. Just select from 10 smart cooking modes, and the Instant Pot will take care of the rest. Novice cooks, take note: this all-in-one gadget will have you looking like an old pro in the kitchen!
When you’re all done, just pop the pot, lid and steam/roasting rack right in the dishwasher—cleanup is literally that easy. While there’s something to be said for slaving away in the kitchen to master the art of cooking, nowadays you have a choice—and if convenience is your thing, this is the multicooker for you.
“What did I do before this?,” wrote one incredulous fan. “Well for one thing I used my heavy crock pots more, another, I had to use multiple pots and pans and do more dishes!...This little baby...can cook meals ahead in the pot and keep warm until we are ready to eat. I just does EVERYTHING I need!”
“I bought this to bake single meal items, lasagna, pot pie, things like that,” wrote another happy shopper. “This cooks really well, saves power, and does not heat up the whole kitchen like the main oven does. For these reasons, and the great deal Amazon had on it, I give it top marks!”
“I have years of experience with multicookers and this is the best,” wrote a satisfied shopper. “It makes food for my family at the fraction of the time it would normally take. Unlike other Instant Pots, it has a glass lid so you can see what is going on with the food...Being able to bake, slow cook low or high, and all the other many ways of cooking it does, is so handy and simplifies everything.”
Normally, the Instant Pot Aura 9-in-1 multicooker is $130, but today it’s just $60. It’s an incredible deal by anyone’s standards, and the return on investment is just off the charts. Become a kitchen hero with an appliance that ups your cooking game for you, and throw in bragging rights as a bonus, too!
