No doubt you’ve already come across the Instant Pot, the internet-famous pressure cooker that can cook, can, sous vide, steam and more! Sure, it’s not the most elegant of appliances, leaning more towards infomercial territory than Chef’s Table, but it’s an undeniably popular workhorse and one worth picking up should you find yourself dining out more than you’d like.
Giving into the simple joys of this all-in-one appliance doesn’t mean reaching for the bottom shelf, either — the relatively new Instant Pot Max model is at its lowest price since it was released in August, down to $150 from $200.
The Max is an industry first 15psi electric pressure cooker, as Instant Pot touts, which is typically a strength only stovetop cookers can sustain. In other words, this is the kitchen appliance equivalent of turning up to 11. And for those of you who may not know how to spell sous vide, much less cook in that style, the Max has an intuitive touchscreen and 13 safety mechanisms to make sure you don’t end up like Tim Allen on Christmas Eve.
