Sure, we’ve all heard of the Instant Pot. But what if I told you that there was a multi-cooker that worked just as well for a fraction of the price? Let me introduce you to the Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-Cooker. It has the same exact functions as the Instant Pot—and it’s on sale right now.
This pressure cooker typically costs around $70, but right now you can get it for just $50 at Best Buy as one of their Deals of the Day, which is one of the biggest discounts we’ve seen on this model as of late. Plus, it’s also $30 cheaper than the comparable Instant Pot Duo model, so it’s a total steal if you’ve been wanting to pressure cook on a budget.
Although it doesn’t have the same cult-following as the Instant Pot, we found that the Crock-Pot Express was the best affordable multi-cooker we’ve ever tested for its ease of use. We found that it had easier-to-read settings like “Rice/Risotto” instead of having to decide whether “Rice,” “Multigrain,” or “Pressure Cook” would be appropriate to make that butternut squash risotto you had planned for dinner.
The Crock-Pot Express has eight smart presets ranging from sauté to soup to slow cook (Crock-Pot’s expertise!), which is honestly aIl you need for the average home chef. Plus, this gadget will leave you stovetop and oven free, making it ideal for cooking if you have roommates crowding the kitchen. It’s also one of the few multi-cookers that has a nonstick inner pot—a.k.a. clean-up is that much easier.
The Crock-Pot Express could finally be the answer for those of use who want an Instant Pot but don’t want to pay the price of one. Reminder: This deal is only good for today only, so you better act fast to get on this pressure-cooking train.
