Instant Pot’s multicookers have a fervent following. And, for the uninitiated, Amazon Prime Day 2021 — live now through June 22 — might be a good time to hop on the bandwagon
There are several deals to take advantage of, including all-time low prices on the Instant Pot Duo Plus and the Instant Pot Duo Crisp Pressure Cooker with Air Fryer. The Duo Crisp is the best multitasking Instant Pot we’ve tested and also has spots in our guides to the best air fryers and the best sous vide machines.
You’ll also find great savings on electric pressure cookers and multicookers that aren’t specifically Instant Pot brand during the event. These models can sometimes be even better than Instant Pot — our top-rated model from our guide to the best electric pressure cookers is actually the Crock-Pot Express Crock XL Multicooker.
That said, we still really love Instant Pot, and the deals going on right now are the best we’ve seen in a couple of years. You can even save $15 on “The Ultimate Instant Pot Cookbook”to guide your cooking adventures.
Below you’ll find the best Instant Pot deals to shop now, plus some FAQs about Amazon Prime Day 2021. Be sure to check out our other coverage of best kitchen Prime Day deals, too, for more deals on small appliances. And, check back tomorrow morning for the latest deals through the end of Prime Day.

Do you need an Instant Pot?
If you’re looking for a kitchen appliance that can pressure cook, slow cook, saute, simmer, and more, a multicooker like the Instant Pot is the way to go. We mainly use the pressure cooking function on our multicookers because it uses heat and pressure to shorten cooking tasks that typically take hours. For instance, an Instant Pot can produce easy-to-shred pulled pork in an hour, rather than the usual eight-plus hours. It’s also great for making broths, roasts, hard-boiled eggs, egg bites, beans, rice, and much more. If this sounds appealing to you, take advantage of the Prime Day 2021 deals.
What Instant Pot model should I buy?
Our favorite “Instant Pot” from our guide to the best electric pressure cookers isn’t actually an Instant Pot at all. We love the Crock-Pot Express Crock XL Multicooker (8-quart) for its even cooking, easy-to-use interface, and roomy interior. That said, it’s on the pricier side.
One of the benefits of Instant Pot branded multicookers is that they have so many additional functions. If you’re interested in an economical appliance that can do things like sous vide and air fry, the Instant Pot Duo Crisp Pressure Cooker with Air Fryer (8 Qt), has earned spots in our guides to the best air fryers and the best sous vide machines, in addition to being named “best multitasking” in our multicooker guide.
If you’re primarily interested in slow cooking and pressure cooking (the base Instant Pot tasks), the Instant Pot DUO 60 7-in-1 (6-qt) is our best budget pick and usually retails for around $89.
What size Instant Pot should I buy?
We think most people will get the best use out of a six or eight-quart model. Most people start with a six-quart pressure cooker and upgrade as needed. If you plan on cooking larger meals, an eight-quart model may be best. We didn’t notice any difference in performance between the six and eight-quart multicookers we tested. Also, while larger Instant Pots are available, we don’t think most people will find the extra space of a 10-quart or larger model necessary.
