The universe has saved the best Instant Pot sale for the slackers. If you haven’t gotten around to picking up an Instant Pot yet, this is your lucky day. Amazon has slashed the price of its best-selling appliance (and by best-selling we mean the one that broke the Internet on Amazon Prime Day) by nearly 40 percent. Now is the time to catch up with the rest of humanity and get on the Insta-train.

It may have seemed like a trend at first but by now you know that the Instant Pot has truly earned its hoards of obsessives. The thing really works! By making cooking so easy, it makes everyone more inventive and adventurous in the kitchen. That means dinner is more exciting. That means families are happier. Basically, the Instant Pot is fixing everything. Don’t be surprised if it runs as a third-party candidate in 2020.

The multi-talented cooker can get you to a delicious, creative meal in minutes. We’re talking everything from perfectly cooked meats to homemade yogurt to restaurant-quality desserts.

The model of the moment is the Instant Pot Ultra, an 8-quart beauty. Perfectly sized to cook for a family, the Instant Pot Ultra promises to replace 10 other kitchen appliances, including your pressure cooker, your rice cooker, steamers, your abundant collection of unnecessary pans and more. Imagine your cabinets cleared of these items. Conjure the feeling of calm satisfaction you’ll have in donating these goods and simplifying your cook space. Don’t you feel lighter already?

The Ultra model even includes a sous vide setting for restaurant-perfect temps and texture when cooking meat, fish, eggs—just about anything. You can even adjust the cooking settings based on the altitude you’re at (we’re looking at you, Colorado!). It’s truly hard to believe the price—today only you can snag the Ultra for just $110—that’s a savings of $70! (Don’t need a full 8-quart cooking capacity? Prices are also slashed on the Instant Pot Ultra 6 quart today!)

With more than 18,600 reviews on Amazon, the Instant Pot Ultra has a 4.7 out of 5-star rating, and super-relatable feedback:

“I never thought I would use a pressure cooker. I bought this and waited awhile before I even opened the box,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “I did read all the directions and followed a few YouTube videos, and finally got the nerve to use it. Dinners are quick, amazingly good, and my entire family is happy. I ended up buying a second one, to allow me to make multiple items at the same time! If you make the same thing in both pots you can feed a lot of people. Nothing like having a full home-cooked meal in less than an hour for a large group. Best purchase on Amazon yet.”

Versatile and easy to use, the Instant Pot Ultra is a great help during holiday meal prep. Day-to-day it’s a way to sometimes opt out of using the oven too.

Another fan said: “I love this Instant Pot. I use it as often as I can. I barely use my oven any more. Great for cooking almost anything, but almost worth it if just to cook hard boiled eggs... they almost jump out of their shells. If you don't have one of these... what are you waiting for?! I did have to replace the sealing ring as the original would not stay in place. Small pittance for what good I get out of this.”
