The gadget can cook up to five dishes at once, replacing multiple kitchen appliances

Instant Pots are loved by fervent foodies all over the globe and, while they’ve been around for more than a decade, it’s likely that you’ve heard more about these miraculous machines over the past year than ever before.

As we have spent more time at home, these multi-cookers have skyrocketed in popularity among households looking for new ways to make quick, hot and delicious meals from scratch.

An increasingly popular cooking device, an Instant Pot makes it super easy to prepare delicious and nutritious meals with minimal effort by combining up to nine kitchen appliances in one. It can sauté, steam, stew and slow cook, and even comes with built-in smart programmes so you can make everything from your breakfast porridge to pulled pork, restaurant-worthy steak and dessert, all with a press of a button.

If you’ve somehow avoided the Instant Pot craze so far, we’ve found a deal that might just tempt you to hop on the bandwagon. As part of its annual Prime Day sale, Amazon is offering you the chance to save an impressive 44 per cent on the Instant Pot duo.

The nifty appliance, which costs just £49.99, can truly do it all. So, if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t have the time – or patience – to stand over a sizzling stove all day long, it could soon become your best friend in the kitchen.

Instant Pot duo 7-in-1 electric pressure cooker: Was £89.99, now £49.99, Amazon.co.uk

Say hello to the multi-functional machine of your dreams, the Instant Pot duo.

This feature-packed gadget combines a bunch of functions into one easy-to-use appliance, including pressure cooking, sautéing, slow cooking, rice cooking, yogurt making and so much more. The Instant Pot Duo can remember the way you like to cook, and which smart programmes you use most often, so you can “set it and forget it”, freeing you to do other things while your dinner cooks safely and quickly.

In our review of the appliance, our tester said it is a great option for anyone that’s new to pressure cooking and wants a gadget they can rely on for batch cooking stew, preparing perfect rice or keeping curries warm. “It’s an absolutely brilliant piece of kitchen kit you won’t regret giving countertop space to,” they said.

“It’s well built, easy to take apart and dishwasher friendly and the controls are intuitive, albeit basic. Plus there’s a whole army of Instant Pot fans online who will share tips and tricks, recipes and results with you.”

If you didn’t quite make it in time to snap up this deal, you can find plenty of great alternatives in our round-up of the best pressure cookers, where this Ninja foodi 7-in-1 multi cooker (was £199.99, now £172.41, Amazon.co.uk) was praised for being an “absolutely brilliant piece of kit”.

“Where it really scores over other models is that its lid can also grill, bake or air fry contents,” our reviewer wrote. “The smaller, lighter pressure-cooking lid twists on and off but the ‘crisping’ top stays hinged at the side to be lowered as needed.
