Instant Pot multi-cookers are one of the most popular kitchen gadgets on the planet. According to one survey, 21% of American adults own one of the small kitchen appliances that perform up to 16 functions (depending on the model), from pressure cooking to air frying.

Amazon Prime Day is one of the best times of the year to pick up an Instant Pot -- the brand is known to seriously cut prices during the event. And this year's Prime Day is no exception, as some of the most popular Instant Pot models have been marked down more than 40% off.

CBS Essentials has rounded up some the best Instant Pot Prime Day deals on Amazon, which will be in effect through June 22 ... or until they sell out!
