“I bought my first Instant Pot when Ultra was just released, so went with the newest model. I was very skeptical, and thought I could always return it. After using it twice, I was hooked,” said one five-star reviewer. “I cook congee, rice, broth, soup, stews, eggs with it regularly. It was so useful, I had to get another around Christmas.”

“I love my Instant Pot! It's great for people who work full time and have very little time to prepare healthy, home cooked meals and want to eat before 8 p.m.,” added another. “This is a MUST have for all home cooks who value nutritious & delicious food and of course what little time we have during the week. I highly recommend!”

Some users have noted that it takes some time to learn how to correctly use all of the Instant Pot’s settings to cook, but the learning curve seems to be worth it.

“I really like this appliance. However, it does take some trial and error to get cook times right for some things, or at least a lot of Googling...That said, the thing cooks frozen meat perfectly in no time, and makes veggie squash stew so much more flavourful and tender than I can make it on the stovetop. It cooks eggs perfectly and makes risotto super fast with no stirring. The thing isn't perfect, but I love the results,” added another reviewer.

The verdict

While an Instant Pot may require a bit of trial and error before you get the cooking methods down, it's a great tool to have on hand for busy weeknight dinners. You can set it and forget about it until the timer goes off, when you’ll end up with delicious and low-stress meals at home.

But hurry, since this deal is only on for a limited time, you’ll want to add this multipurpose cooker to your cart before it’s gone.
