Instant Pot Duo Mini Plus | $55 | Amazon
If you don’t own a pressure cooker , today’s a great day to fix that. The apartment-friendly 3 qt. Instant Pot Mini Plus wants a permanent home on your kitchen counter, and it’s down to $55 today, a $45 discount from its typical price.
This is the Plus model , which has a few additional cooking modes compared to the original DUO model. You’ll probably never use the Egg mode, but the sterilize mode can be useful for cleaning things like baby bottles, and even for certain types of canning. Its biggest advantage over the original though, in my opinion, is the more information-rich screen.
While Instant Pots are best known for cooking foods quickly, they’re also our readers’ favorite slow cooker , and a damn good rice cooker too. Basically it’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own, and this model is great if you’re nervous about it taking up precious cabinet and counter space.
