Huge Prime Day Deal on Instant Pot

Prime Day has arrived!

Last year, the Instant Pot made waves with its best deal ever — but it looks like this year is going to be even better.

Right now through the end of Prime Day, you can pick up the bestselling Instant Pot DUO60 for a whopping 41% off! That makes it under $60 and an absolute steal.

This is a very limited time deal, so act fast. With this low of a price, it’s possible that the popular multicooker could sell out. And if not, once Prime Day ends, this deal is gone!

The Instant Pot isn’t on sale that often, and this might be the lowest we’ve ever seen this particular model. A 6 quart is a great size for a family, and you’ll likely find that it’s infinitely useful.
