Prime Day is such an all-encompassing retail event that the term includes more than just the annual monster sale on Amazon. The annual sales have also spawned many cutting savings such as Walmart’s Big Save and Target’s Deal Days, which now coincide and compete directly with Prime Day.

It’s about as cheap as any multicooker, with all the functionality of Instant Pot, but for about half the price. The Insignia scores high on Best Buy’s confirmed purchase reviews and has six liters of cooking capacity – more than enough to handle easy dinners during the week for a family of four.
Best known for its slow cookers, the Crock-Pot now has its own version of Instant Pot and scores extremely well in reviews of verified purchases from Target. It’s currently up to $ 50. Express does everything your standard Instant Pot does, including pressure cooker, slow cooker, hot, steam, sauté and more. If you dig shiny, black and silver aesthetics, this is definitely your choice.
For a finer Instant Pot, the 6-liter Lux also retails for just $ 59 and is available in red or navy blue. The 6-liter Lux offers 12 cooking programs and a programmable timer. Free two-day delivery is included.
This multicooker does not have the Instant Pot pressure cooker function, but does slow cooking, burning and sautéing, steaming, baking, baking and heating. It has a full cooking capacity of 6 liters and an elegant, modern look.
Instant Pot Duo Crisp is probably the most versatile in the entire line, as the crispy lid turns your multicooker into a deep fryer. Make tender meats and fragrant stews on the bottom and then fry a batch of chicken wings or french fries for seconds, or make fallen pork ribs and finish them with the fryer lid for a crispy, crispy outside.
