Amazon Prime Day 2018 – Instant Pot Deals? (Yes, on the IP-Duo)

(Image courtesy of Amazon.com)

Looking for a deal on an Instant Pot? You’re in luck – it’s Amazon Prime Day! I’m an Amazon affiliate, and I get a small commission on anything you buy through the Amazon links on my site. Thank you!

Why is Prime Day such a big deal for Instant Pot fans? Because Amazon traditionally has a fantastic Instant Pot deal on Prime Day for Amazon Prime members. Their lowest prices of the year are on Prime Day and Black Friday.

(Side note: Prime “Day” is now Prime Day-And-A-Half, starting at 3 PM EST July 16 (today), running through the end of July 17.)

Which Instant Pot is on sale for Prime Day?

I don’t know yet, and I’ll update this post when I find out.

The sale is usually on one specific model; 2015 and 2016 were on the IP Duo 6-Quart, and 2017 was the IP Duo 8-Quart. What will it be this year? I think it will be one of these six Instant Pots:

[UPDATE 2018-07-16 3PM] The sale is on the Instant Pot Duo 6-Quart in the US, and the 6- and 8-Quart in Canada. The Duo is not the latest and greatest, but it’s a very good cooker – it was my daily driver for years. And it’s on sale for its lowest price ever, !

Instant Pot Duo 6-Quart SALE! $58.99 (Regular price: $99.95)

Instant Pot Duo 8-Quart (Currently $139 .95)

Instant Pot Duo Plus 6-Quart (Currently $129.95)

Instant Pot Duo Plus 8-Quart (Currently $159.95)

Instant Pot Ultra 6-Quart (Currently $149.95)

Instant Pot Ultra 8-Quart (Currently $179.95)

(Me? I’m hoping for a sale on the 8-Quart Duo Plus or Ultra; my 8-Quart Duo is lonely, and could use a friend. UPDATE: Darn. The 6 quart Duo is great, but I already have one.)

Instant Pot Prime Day Shopping Tips

Don’t dawdle! The Instant Pot deals are usually time limited, or numbers limited, and sell out. I get hate mail every year from people who see this post too late and miss the sale. If you see the deal, act now.

Don’t get picky! (Unless you’re picky.) My favorite Instant Pot right now is the IP-Duo Plus 6-Quart. I prefer the size to the 8-Quart models, and the interface to the “plain” duo and the Ultra. That said…the family resemblance between these pots is strong. And, Amazon will probably only have a deal on one of them. If the deal is important to you, don’t worry, get the one that’s on sale.
The Instant Pot Duo 6 Quart is great – as I said, I used it for years. It’s not the latest and greatest, but you’ll love it.

That said…If you have your heart set on a specific model, and you know that’s the one you want, get it. (Or wait for Black Friday, and hope it’s on sale then.) You’ll still love it, even if you don’t get a deal.

I hope this helps, and may Prime Day be with you, always!

(Ahem. Sorry.)

    I got the 3-quart Instant Pot Ultra ($119.95) for $85.95! Saved $34.00. The 3-quart steamer basket and glass lid I ordered were not reduced.
