The Instant Pot Duo Plus comes with nine cooking functions including pressure and slow cook, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker, sterilizer and food warmer. It has a simple one-touch operation, large LCD display and cooking progress bar. In addition, the Instant Pot Duo has the quietest steam release which is handy. Its 6-quart capacity is suitable for six people and comes in an attractive, stainless steel color to suit any kitchen. 

The one feature that makes this Instant Pot Duo Plus stand out from the other models is its ‘whisper quiet technology’, which essentially makes the steam release super quiet. There is an, ‘ok to open lid’ message that appears on the LCD display, and step-by-step cooking instructions — which are all handy for beginners. And you can also download the free Instant Pot app on your smartphone for over 800 tasty recipe ideas. 

What’s more, the Instant Pot Duo Plus came out on top in on our best Instant Pot guide for its impressive cooking results. During our tests, it performed well — especially at slow cooking, and was easy to clean and program. It also comes with 25 smart recipe programs, and has a helpful message display to guide you through the whole process.

Compared to the standard Duo, the Duo Plus comes with extra features to handle every cooking need. This includes the bonus Egg, Cake, Yogurt and Sterilize features that its predecessor doesn't offer. It’s also super easy to keep clean and maintain, with a fingerprint resistant surface to avoid those unsightly marks. In addition, if you have a small kitchen or limited countertop space, the Instant Pot Duo Plus, 6-quart is the ideal size — ideal for a family.

As with all great Instant Pot limited-time deals, this won’t stay on sale for long. So if you enjoy cooking up family feasts, or simply want to make cooking easy, grab this hot deal while it still lasts — and save serious cash.
