If you haven’t gotten your hands on a slow cooker or air fryer yet, it’s time…for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Amazon just slashed prices on Instant Pots, Instant Vortex slow cookers and Cosori pressure cookers with savings up to 58 percent off. Hey, maybe your patience (and reluctance to hop on the biggest trend in home cooking) has actually paid off!
Whether you’re looking for a smaller pot for side dishes or individual servings, or you need something to feed a large family, these devices are ideal for whipping up masterpieces with minimal effort — and, in the case of air fryers, no time at all. They’re also super versatile: the slow cookers double as steamers, yogurt makers, warmers, sterilizers, and pressure cookers. Some are literally seven appliances rolled into one.
Check out the best countertop appliances on sale at Amazon right now, but you gotta hurry — deals this delicious rarely last long.
This best-selling model has 14 smart-touch programs, so it can make ribs, soups, pice, chicken and more basically on auto-pilot. It can act as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saute pan, yogurt maker and warmer — just think of the counter space you can save with this beast of a gizmo. Not sure what size to grab? The six-quart capacity is the most popular.
“One hundred percent worth it,” one thrilled shopper shared. “Bought it thinking it may not work — nah. Comes with all the info and accessories you need. Used it the first night for frozen fries and came out tasting like a restaurant. You won’t regret it.”
Whether you have a large family to feed or you like to meal plan on the weekends, this best-selling Instant Vortex can handle six quarts of whatever you’re cooking. It has six smart programs plus it’s equipped to air fry, roast, broil, bake, reheat and dehydrate — all in one machine. The unit uses up to 95 percent less oil to fry up your favorite dishes, including potatoes, onion rings, fish and chicken.
“Cooked chicken breast straight from my deep freezer in 20 minutes!!!!!” one shopper enthusiastically shared. “This is the best investment of my LIFE!!!! I wanted to buy the Ninja Foodie, but hubby wasn’t convinced about an air fryer yet. Now he is a believer.”
Over sixteen smart programs set this smart gizmo apart. Six different levels cook perfect meats, veggies, rice and beans, while ten safety mechanisms ensure that pressure is kept within safe operating levels, and automatically turn off the pressure cooker if electrical currents exceed operational levels. You can also adjust settings on the fly without turning off the pot.
“I’ve only had this two weeks and already gave it quite a workout,” one shopper shared. “I’ve used it as a vegetable steamer, for cooking brown rice, a slow cooker and a pressure cooker. Yes it’s big and heavy but it takes the place of 4 appliances and I’m sure I’ll find ways to make it take the place of more. I’m collecting recipes and adjusting those I have on hand. This is so easy to use, my husband — he who burns water — manages just fine [sticky note on cabinet with “press this..then this…then this”] which is nothing short of a miracle. Very easy to clean! This is my new go-to appliance.”
If you’re cooking a large meal — perhaps for a special occasion or to divide into portions for freezing — an eight-quart Instant Pot will be a massive help. This one uses 11 smart programs to cook any protein or veggie you throw in, plus a clear lid makes it easy to check on progress without releasing steam. An automatic ‘keep warm’ feature ensures your morsels stay toasty up to 24 hours, and you can delay cooking start time so your food will be ready at the exact time you need.
“I absolutely love this thing!” one shopper raved. “It’s big and has a deep pan. With all of the settings, you can really cook anything in there. Has really been an awesome addition to my appliances.”
If you want to dress up your basic black or stainless steel Instant Pot, this bright red shade should be right up your alley. The cutie features 12 smart programs, including soup, pressure cooking, warming and steaming. It can pressure cook for up to 240 minutes, keep your meal warm up to 10 hours and has three different saute and cook temperatures.
“I love that I can make a quick meal in half the time,” a shopper raved. “I was scared of using a pressure cooker. However, with this product, it makes it so much safer as long as you are following the proper directions. Boiled eggs in minutes, hot wings, you name it….wonderful product!”
