If you’re not familiar, the Instant Pot combines a bunch of small kitchen appliances into one. It’s probably best known for its pressure cooking capabilities, but the Duo Nova has this functionality along with that of a rice cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, sauté pan, steamer and Moreover. It’s actually an upgraded version of the Instant Pot Duo and it adds a lid that closes automatically without the need for an additional toggle.
We love the Duo Nova for all of these reasons, plus its clear controls, built-in safety features and in this case, its 6 quart capacity. It’s big enough to make a meal that will easily feed a family of six, and if your household isn’t that big, it’ll be a good meal-maker.
You can’t go wrong with the Duo Nova if you’re an Instant Pot newbie – but if you want a slightly more advanced model, the Instant Crisp Duo, which includes the company’s fry lid, remains on sale for $ 130. the Instant Pot Smart WiFi, a version of the multicooker that you can control with your smartphone, is also on sale for $ 90. It’s only $ 10 more than its lowest price.
