Right now on Amazon, you can save nearly 40% off the $130 list price of the Instant Pot Duo Plus 9-1

This 9-in-1 model functions as an electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, sauté pan and food warmer. You get two other tricks, too: a sterilizer; and, a sous-vide function that allows you to keep your cooking water at a constant temperature. The machine has 15 customizable programming options.

Here's another really big deal. You can save $50 right now on Amazon on the Instant Pot Duo Crisp.

The Duo Crisp is the Instant Pot Duo, but with the ability to air fry. It comes with a multi-level, air-fryer basket. If you're keeping count, the 11-in-1 Instant Pot Duo Crisp can do all of these things: air fry, pressure cook, slow cook, bake, broil, roast, steam, sauté, proof, sous-vide cook and warm food.

    And the big Instant Pot deals just keep coming. Right now on Amazon, you can get more than 25% off this higher-end Instant Pot model

    As you can see from the picture above, the Instant Omni Plus is not exactly a pot. In fact, no, it isn't a pot. The Instant Omni Plus is a countertop convection oven that, in true Instant Pot fashion, has a bunch of tricks up its sleeves. (And, yes, we know, the not-a-pot doesn't have sleeves -- just go with it.)  This 10-in-1 appliance can be used to air fry, broil, bake, roast, dehydrate, reheat, toast and warm. And, as noted, it works as a convection oven and a rotisserie.

    A relative of the above model, the Instant Omni Pro has 14 total functions, including the ability to proof cook and split cook. And, though, no, it's not marked as on sale right now on Amazon, $275 is a great Amazon price on this.

    Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 (6 quart): $75

    Hungry for another Instant Pot deal? How about this one? Right now on Amazon, get 25% off the Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1

    If you're seeking the classic Instant Pot experience, then this may be the model for you. The Instant Pot Duo is basically seven appliances in one: an electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, sauté pan and food warmer. It has 13 customizable programs, too. The Instant Pot Duo features dual-pressure settings: high, for speedy cooking; and low, for you-really-don't-want-to-overcook-this cooking.  

    Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 (6 quart), $75 (reduced from $100)

    Recipe to try:

  • Philly cheesesteak (from The Salty Marshmallow)

  • Instant Pot Pro 10-in-1 (8 quart): $130

    Instant Pot Pro 10-in-1 Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice/Grain Cooker, Steamer, Saute, Sous Vide, Yogurt Maker, Sterilizer, and Warmer, 6 Quart

    The 8-quart version of the Instant Pot Pro is on sale right now on Amazon: You can save $20 off the $150 list price. A 6-quart model is also available on Amazon, but it's not on sale right now. 

    Like the Instant Pot Duo Plus, the Instant Pot Pro can be used for pressure cooking, slow cooking, rice cooking, sous-vide cooking, sautéing, sterilizing, yogurt making, warming and steaming. But the Pro does the Duo Plus one better, and adds a 10th function: cake baking.

    There are 28 program settings for essential meals, and five programmable settings for your own favorite Instant Pot recipes. This model has an upgraded gentle steam release switch with a diffusing cover (to reduce noise and prevent splashing on your countertop).

    This Baby Yoda- or Grogu-themed Star Wars Instant Pot Duo is on sale right now on Amazon. The deal brings the model's $116 price tag down to $100. 

    Four other Star Wars themes are available on Amazon, and while none of the others are marked as on sale, they're basically going for $100 each, too. The one exception: The BB-8 Instant Pot Duo Mini. It's listed right now on Amazon for $80. But note: The BB-8 model is a 3-quart model (hence, why it's an Instant Pot Duo Mini). The Baby Yoda and/or Grogu version, known as Little Bounty, is a 6-quart Instant Pot Duo.

    The Instant Pot Ultra is a 10-in-1 product. It has updates such as altitude adjustment, and a steam-release reset button.

    "Even if you don't cook a lot or have a wide range of cooking skills, the LCD panel really takes the mystery out of the pressure cooking cycle which is not available on the Duo or Lux models," reads a verified-purchase review on Amazon. "Maybe the extra settings will entice novice cooks to try new things."

  • Pork carnitas tacos (from Julie Hartigan)

  • Instant Pot Duo Nova (6 quart)
