While the rest of the country sleeps off their Thanksgiving meal (or braves the crowds at various big-box stores), the folks at Amazon have released a special deal on the 8-Quart Instant Pot DUO. The sale is a Daily Deal, good just between midnight (Pacific time) today and a second before midnight tomorrow night.
Buy: 8-Quart Instant Pot DUO, $70 (was $140)
Why You Need the 8-Quart Instant Pot DUO
The DUO does all the things the Instant Pot LUX can do — so it can be used to pressure cook, slow cook, make rice, steam veggies and fish, sauté nearly anything — plus, it can also make yogurt. And it has a low-pressure setting, which can be used to make custards or bake cakes. Translation: If you're buying the Instant Pot because you're curious about all the bells and whistles, this is the one to get, as it gives you more settings and functions.
While the 6-quart version can be big enough for two to four people, the 8-quart will give you plenty of room if you're the kind of cook who likes to double a recipe for leftovers or if you want to be able to use your Instant Pot when you entertain. (And we do recommend using the Instant Pot when you entertain, as it's a great way to free up space in the oven and your own hands so you can focus on other things.) Oh, and this model is currently half off! That means you save $70!
If you're not convinced to buy the larger IP Duo, the 6-quart one is on sale for $60 (marked down from $100). And the 3-quart is also on sale for $60 (from $80). But for just 10 extra dollars, why not size up?
