Few things inspire love and devotion quite like an Instant Pot. (Don't believe me? Check out the very active Facebook groups.) And we can't say we blame anyone obsessed with the multi-cooker. It's a kitchen workhorse, with the power to cook everything—from fall-off-the-bone short ribs and creamy risotto to fluffy rice and fork-tender steamed vegetables—all in one easy-to-clean, er, pot.

If you don't own one already, or you’re thinking about buying an Instant Pot as a special gift, now's the time. Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, retailers like WalmartAmazonMacy's, and more offer huge price cuts on a variety of Instant Pot models and sizes.

Right now, the brand's most popular model, the 6-Quart DUO60, is just $49 (from $100) at Walmart, while the even more advanced Instant Pot Smart WiFi is 40 percent off on Amazon. Scroll down to learn more about each device, as well as other incredible Instant Pot sales we’ve found.

Instant Pot Smart WiFi

Why it's so great: Instant Pot's most hands-off option, you can pair the gadget with your phone to create custom cooking settings, or use the brand's app with more than 750 pre-programmed recipes. And if you have an Amazon Alexa or Google Home, you can control this model with voice commands.

To buy: $90 (originally $150);

Instant Pot DUO60

Why it's so great: Like we mentioned, this is the company's most popular model. It works as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, and warmer, and also has a low-pressure setting to make yogurt. If you're the type of person who cooks batches of food on Sundays for the following week but you're on a tight schedule, using the DUO60 is a smart get.

Instant Pot Ultra

Why it's so great: For an Instant Pot with all the bells and whistles, check out this model. The top-of-the-line machine is a 10-in-one pressure cooker, capable of everything from sterilizing baby pacifiers to making cakes (even at high altitudes). It also features a cooking progress indicator to take the guesswork out of recipes, as well as a quick release button to safely release steam manually.

Why it’s so great: The most straightforward Instant Pot, the Lux is also the most affordable. While it doesn’t have a yogurt-making setting, it’s still great for steaming, sauteing, warming, and slow cooking.

Instant Vortex Plus 7-in-1 Air Fryer Oven

Why it’s so great: Okay, so this isn’t an Instant Pot. The brand released the Instant Vortex Plus in July as an answer to the air fryer clamor, and it more than delivers. With this appliance, you can air-fry, roast, broil, bake, reheat, rotisserie, and dehydrate foods—perfectly complementing the Instant Pot.

To buy: $69 (originally $120);
