The Best Pressure Cooker Black Friday Deals (2021): This Dad-Approved Instant Pot is on Sale for Black Friday

HQ Gadget

It’s never a bad time to invest in a pressure cooker, but thanks to the best pressure cooker Black Friday deals for 2021, now’s a particularly excellent time to cop one at a nice discount. As cliché as it may sound, my dad happens to be the best cook I know. In fact, whenever I’m away from home for long periods of time, one of the things I look forward to the most is his delicious home-cooked meals. And though my father is a creature of habit (in true dad fashion), every so often a new gadget will look enticing enough for him to “add to cart.” Of all the products he has bought in recent years, the Instant Pot has been one of his most satisfying purchases (and it’s being offered at a great price for Black Friday!).

It has built-in functions that include slow cooking, steaming, sautéing, and even a setting to make homemade yogurt (though he refuses to let me experiment with that one), but it is the device’s braising abilities that he appreciates the most. “It speeds up the timeline by several hours, and it’s good for experimenting,” he says. But besides saving time, the appliance allows him to make some of his favorite recipes—like homemade kale and white bean soup, pork carnitas, short rib beef stew, and deconstructed lasagna dishes—year-round. “In the summertime, I wouldn’t cook certain things because it’d be too hot. But my pressure cooker prevents me from having the stove and oven on, keeping the house cool.”

In the past, he’s even joked about ordering a second Instant Pot—and though I’m not sure he’s entirely joking, I wouldn’t blame him if he did! When I consider some of my favorite dishes he makes, the Instant Pot plays a key role in their preparation. And while there have been times I’ve had a sneaking suspicion that my dad might consider the Instant Pot to be his favorite (and perhaps most productive) child, I’ll gladly concede any claim to the title as long as I have a bowl of soup or a hearty stew waiting for me when I come home.

Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker

Here’s the 7-in-1 pressure cooker my dad has owned for over two years, which he swears has held up “really well” (and is easy to clean). He suggests trying the sauté function for making homemade stock using leftover beef bones and some aromatics. If my dad’s beloved model isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, keep scrolling for several similar models that are also deeply discounted.
