Instant Pot alternative: Best Buy’s 6-quart pressure cooker is back for $30



It doesn’t get any cheaper than this: A 6-quart pressure cooker for just $30.

Best Buy

Still don’t own a pressure cooker? As of today, price is no longer an obstacle: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy once again has the Insignia 6-quart Multi-Function Pressure Cooker for just $29.99, which ties the lowest price I’ve ever seen for any cooker of this size. However, shipping will run you a hefty $12 unless you opt for in-store pickup. Or read on for a potentially better option.

Also on sale right now: The Insignia 8-quart Multi-Function Pressure Cooker for $39.99, with free shipping included. If you want to be able to prepare larger meals, that’s undoubtedly the better option — especially considering that it does sometimes sell at its $120 list price.

But getting back to the 6-quart, it appears to be nearly identical to the equivalent Instant Pot. It offers 10 preset modes for things like rice, meat, soup and even cake. It features a delayed-start option, an automatic keep-warm function and a dishwasher-safe non-stick pot.

Sounds good on paper, right? Here’s the most telling detail: The Insignia cooker has a 4.7-star average rating from nearly 2,900 Best Buy customers — and a whopping 98% of them would recommend this product to a friend. (The 8-quart model has the same rating, though from “only” 1,700 buyers.)

If you’re not convinced this is a must-have kitchen appliance (trust me, it is), here are five reasons you need an Instant Pot — and some great recipes to get you started.

Thirty bucks, people!
