Step aside, Xboxes and giant TVs: Instant Pots are taking up space on page one of Black Friday ads now. These little multi-cookers have been dominating the kitchen gadget conversation for the past year or so, and numerous retailers are competing to see who can offer the best price on one of this year’s hottest items.
It’s totally not surprising, though. Instant Pots just make cooking (and life) easier, and are one of those rare items that fit into the daily lives of college students, adults, and grandparents alike — so we’d suggest shopping online to avoid stores selling out or getting knocked over by grandma hauling ass down the kitchen aisle.
Somewhere around $30 off seems to be the sweet spot this year, but not all retailers have the same models on sale — but we’ll let you know where the deals are and where coupons can help you even more. If you’re iffy on which model makes the most sense for your household, you can check out our guide to which Instant Pot is right for you.
Kohl’s is offering 15% off your purchase until Nov. 23 with promo code JOY. That means that the price of the 6-quart DUO technically drops to around $59.49, which is a way better price than every other place is offering. But remember, that’s only if you snag it on actual Black Friday. If you’ve been eyeing up the roast-ready Aura or the Fancy 10-in-1 Ultra, here’s a chance to take 15% off.
Walmart is the only place we’ve seen so far with a discount on the LUX. It has the least amount of functions, but that also means a low price. Plus, most retailers are only offering the 6-quart model on sale, and this 8-quart model is great when cooking for a crowd.
The 6-quart 7-in-1 Duo sits at $69.99 here, which is what we’re seeing at most other places for Black Friday. Macy’s is running a promo that takes $20 off of purchases over $50, but it won’t work on the 6-quart price as it’s a doorbuster. However, Macy’s has the Duo in the 3-quart and 8-quart models, and the coupon should work on those — giving you a sneak discount on models that other stores aren’t offering. Use code BLKFRI50 on Nov. 23 to get the extra savings.

Target’s price on the 6-quart Duo is basically what Macy’s is, but $0.05 cheaper. But if you have a Target card, you can save an extra 5% on your purchase and take an extra three bucks off. Hey, whatever you’ve got to do to save some cash — that’s our motto anyway.
