This is your friendly reminder that Amazon’s huge Summer Sale event is still going strong, and there are tons of amazing deals on our favorite brands across the home and kitchen categories! One standout we’re particularly excited about? Instant Pot’s Ace Plus blender, which, at 40 percent off, is just $90 right now!

Even at full price, it’s a terrific value for anyone considering a high-speed blender without a high price tag. Kitchn’s Food Editor, Kelli, put the O.G Ace 60 head-to-head against her beloved Vitamix, and was impressed by its performance. “Given the choice,” she said, “I reach for the Ace nearly every time.” The newer, souped-up Ace Plus comes fully loaded with 10 One Touch programs and can power through smoothies, purees, nut butters, and crushed ice like a total boss. Plus, the wide design of the 54-ounce glass blending jar also helps the powerful appliance slice through heavy and thick recipes like cookie dough, so it can do the work of a food processor.

If you typically buy non-dairy milk, you’ll be happy to know that the Ace Plus has three programs for making your own rice milk, soy milk, and oat/nut milk. A strainer bag is included, so you can filter out any pulp. It also comes with two tampers, one of which does double-duty as a measuring cup, and a cleaning brush for getting in and around the super-sharp blade assembly. Right below the blades is one of the blender’s most innovative features: a built-in heating element. Add raw ingredients like vegetables, greens, and aromatics, some stock or your liquid of choice, and select the soup program. Hot soup within a few minutes, without even touching a saucepan or immersion blender!  

If you’ve been considering adding a high-speed blender to your arsenal, this is your chance to get a great one at a great price. And thanks to Amazon prime, if you order the Ace Plus now, you could be sipping a frozen cocktail and snacking on fresh salsa by Friday!
