Confession: I do not own an Instant Pot. I am intrigued by the Instant Pot, and my social media feeds are filled with people raving about their Instant Pots (“Got home late from picking up the kids and had a full roast done in 30 seconds with my trusty Instant Pot!”) (okay, I may be exaggerating just a tad), but I haven’t bitten yet, in large part because I own five crock pots and I know that if I go for another Big Cooking Thing I am going to be pressured to part with one of those. (Yes, I need all five. It’s complicated.)
Anyway! The Instant Pot has been one of the big markdowns this holiday season, but if you weren’t quite there before, and/or you are now in need of a last-minute, will-still-arrive-before-Christmas gift, get on it: Amazon has the 6-quart Instant Pot marked down to just $79, today. That’s still about $10 over Black Friday/Cyber Monday price, but not bad at all. And you’ll look like a hero on Christmas morning.
