1. Instant Vortex 4-in-1 Air Fryer

When it first launched, the Instant Vortex Air Fryer was an Internet sensation! Just like the Instant Pot multicooker, the air fryer also has multiple functions that are incredibly practical: It can roast, broil, bake, reheat, dehydrate food and even has a “rotate” setting for rotisserie chicken. It basically functions like a compact oven. It also has a faster preheat, which is supposed to cut down cooking time by 20 percent. Our Associate Food Editor, Meghan, owns one and absolutely loves the air fryer’s size, ease of use and ability to crisp food up rather nicely.

2. Instant Pot Duo Nova 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker

Unlike the O.G Instant Pot, the Duo Nova has an Easy Seal Lid, which automatically sets to seal when you close it, saving you precious cooking time and effort. It also has an Easy Steam Release Button, which you can press to let steam out and safely keep your fingers away from the nozzle. Other than these two major upgrades, the Duo Nova is just like the Duo in that it’s a 7-in-1 machine: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer and yogurt maker!

3. Instant Pot Omni Plus Air Fryer Toaster Oven

If you prefer multi-tasking appliances, Instant Pot’s version of the toaster oven is a good one to add to your countertop. It does more than just make toast and heat up leftovers. You can bake a 12-inch pizza, make a cake and roast a whole chicken. It has seven pre-programmed buttons: Air Fry, Dehydrate, Toast, Roast, Bake, Broil and Reheat. And it comes with an oven rack, cooking pan, air fryer basket and everything you need to turn the machine into a rotisserie. At 50 percent off, it’s a deal totally worth snagging.
