We saw some fantastic Amazon Prime Day Instant Pot deals in July. The event has now been and gone, but we'll bring you best Amazon Prime Day Instant Pot deals in 2020, so bookmark this page and check back next year. 

If you've been waiting for a good time to buy an Instant Pot, Amazon Prime Day may just be it, thanks to Amazon Prime Day Instant Pot deals. Amazon Prime Day Instant Pot deals will be in abundance, come next week - but that's if the last few Amazon Prime Day events are anything to go by. For the last few years, the Instant Pot has been a best-seller during the retailer's annual – and epic – summer sales event, with steep discounts on a variety of models and sizes. 

Last year Amazon sold more than 300,000 Instant Pots, making it one of the top-selling items and best Amazon Prime Day deals in the US. We expect the pressure cooker to be a popular item again this year, when Prime Day starts on  July 15, with significant price cuts on older models and first-time discounts on new models.

Last year the most popular model, the Instant Pot Duo60, was on sale for $58.99 during the big July event. That's the lowest price we've seen for the Instant Pot, which is normally priced at $99.95 and currently on sale for $79.95. If you decide to wait for Prime Day to purchase the pressure cooker, we believe the price could go as low as $55.99.

We can also expect to see discounts on the Instant Pot Ultra, an eight-quart pressure cooker that's perfect for families that need to prepare large meals. We didn't see discounts during Prime Day 2018, but we've recently seen the pressure cooker on sale for as low as $119, so we expect Prime Day 2019 to either match that or set a new record low.

We also hope to see discounts on the newer-model Instant Pot Smart, which is WiFi-enabled and rarely on sale. Prime Day 2019 would be the perfect time to purchase the latest model pressure cooker at a reduced price.

If you don't want to wait around for an Amazon Prime Day Instant Pot deal, fear not. We've rounded up the top Instant Pot deals that are going on right now. We've also listed our top Instant Pot picks, detailing all the features, so you can find the best model, size, and price that's right for you.

The most popular Instant Pot model

Pot size: 6 Qt | Pressure Cooking Time: Up to 4 hours | Power: 1000W

Replaces 7 kitchen appliances
14 different smart programs
Easy one touch controls

Last year's Prime Day top seller, the Instant Pot Duo combines seven popular kitchen appliances (pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt marker and warmer) into one six-quart pot. The best-selling pressure cooker has an easy to read display with 14 different one-touch smart programs that include dishes like soup, chili, and rice. The Instant Pot Duo also lets you pressure cook on low or high so you can adjust the temperature based on what meal you're preparing.

2. Instant Pot LUX60 6 Qt 6-in-1 Pressure Cooker

The most affordable Instant Pot

Pot size: 6 Quart | Pressure Cooking Time: Up to 4 hours | Power: 1000W

Increased pressure cooking time
Cake baking and egg cooking additions
Low price
Lacks low pressure setting

The Instant Pot Lux is the most basic model with six kitchen appliances and 12 built-in smart programs. This six-quart Instant Pot slow cooks, pressure cooks, makes rice, sautés, steams, and has a "keep warm" option but lacks the yogurt setting that the other models include. The Lux can only pressure cook on high, which may require monitoring to make sure meals don't overcook.

This is a fantastic model for beginners and for those that are looking for a more affordable option. The Lux is the least expensive Instant Pot model and can normally be found on sale.

3. Instant Pot Ultra 8 Qt 10-in-1 Pressure Cooker

Largest capacity with advanced features – great for larger families and groups

Pot size: 8 Qt | Pressure Cooking Time: Up to 6 hours | Power: 1200W

Perfect for large meals
16 different smart programs
Dial and button controls
Expensive

Perfect for large families, the eight-quart Instant Pot Ultra is the ultimate pressure cooker for anyone who loves to cook. In addition to the seven appliances the Duo offers, the Ultra can also make cake, cook eggs and sterilize. This feature-rich Instant Pot also includes a central dial that provides added precision in program selection and temperature adjustment. The Ultra includes an impressive 21 pre-set temperature options and 16 different built-in smart programs. The Ultra also offers an altitude adjustment setting to give you a hand with recipe conversion.

Because the eight-quart Instant Pot Ultra is packed with added features, it does cost more than the previous models, but for adventurous cooks, it will be worth every penny. 

4. Instant Pot Duo Mini 3 Qt 7-in-1 Pressure Cooker

Perfect for small meals and side dishes

Pot size: 3 Qt | Pressure Cooking Time: Up to 4 hours | Power: 700W

The mighty but small Instant Pot Mini is perfect for singles or couples that only need to prepare small portions. This three-quart pressure cooker still combines seven kitchen appliances in one and offers 11 different built-in smart programs. The compact Mini also features 12 different temperature settings and includes up to four hours of pressure cooking time.

The affordable Mini is excellent for making side dishes and small meals, and the compact size makes it perfect for travel and storage.
