We obviously love the convenience of an Instant Pot, and that includes their other one-pot-wonder, The Aura 9-In-One Multicooker. Merging the functionality of up to 10 appliances — including a slow cooker, saute pan, rice cooker, and oven — the Aura adds a different kind of versatility to your routine, embracing time and temperature to make comfort-cooking truly convenient. Even better? Today only, the Aura is 54% off on Amazon! But if the almost 70 dollars in savings isn’t incentive enough, let’s review just a few of the many things you can do with this superstar multicooker.

Unlike a pressure cooker, the compact Aura takes a gentler approach to cooking tender foods like vegetables and fish, which can go from done to overdone very quickly. Plus, it comes with a multi-purpose rack for steaming items and a glass lid that makes it easy to monitor the progress of your recipes so they come out perfect every time. 

Just like the cult-favorite Instant Pot, the Aura is totally programmable to take the guesswork out of whatever you’re cooking. Choose from 10 versatile functions that allow you to roast, stew, bake, steam, slow cook, sear/saute, prep rice and yogurt, and even ferment. A 24-hour delay-start function lets you hold the cooking start time to suit your schedule, and there’s also a keep warm option, which is particularly handy if you’ve started a slow-cook recipe before work and end up having a longer day than expected. 

Both the bottom and sides of the pot are heated, so you can also use the Aura to dry-bake or roast foods (traditional pressure cookers require some moisture to work). Using the same rack, you can prepare quick breads, or dry roast a whole small chicken, not to mention that the long, oval pot itself can function like a casserole for making lasagnas and one-pot meals

The pot’s temperature can be set from 250 to 425 degrees, so it virtually replaces your oven. “It’s nice to use on hot days so you don’t heat up the house with the oven,” notes one reviewer. The ceramic-coated, nonstick aluminum surface functions like a skillet for sauteing vegetables or browning meats before braising or slow-cooking, while the five-inch depth contains bubbling and splatter so that countertops stay clean. Hosting guests for dinner? The Aura can stand in as a second burner, so you can keep soups or side dishes warm without taking up stove space.

Included with the multicooker are the aforementioned rack, as well as a recipe booklet and measuring cup. Think of the Aura as a much, much smarter version of your grandmother’s one-hit-wonder slow cooker.

“I literally use this pot for everything!” says one fan. “It is a tremendous sidekick in the kitchen setting. What did I do before this? Well, for one thing, I used my heavy crock pots more, another, I had to use multiple pots and pans and do more dishes!”
