One-Day Deal on Instant Pots

I just realized that today, July 10, is Amazon Prime Day.  The 8-Quart Instant Pot came down in price from $130 to $90 - more than 30% savings. This is the same pot that I bought a few months ago.

Back when I was waffling on whether or not to get an Instant Pot, I had considered waiting for the sales on either Amazon Prime Day or Black Friday. On both those days in the past, Amazon severely reduces the cost of the Instant Pot. And I'm always a procrastinator when it comes to spending money.

But my husband told me to just go ahead and get it. And I'm glad I did. It was nice that I had practiced using the Instant Pot early this spring. Now that my brain is often overwhelmed  by other details, I'm so glad I can drop food in the Instant Pot, set the timer, walk away, and let it cook with no further thought for me. In my distracted state, I would have burnt many more meals the past month if it were not for the Instant Pot. Not to mention just having late meals. The Instant Pot has become a valuable addition to my kitchen staff.

Some of you asked for more details on how I use the Instant Pot. I'll try to give you all more details in a future post but for now, if you have been waiting for a good deal on the 8-Quart Instant Pot, this is a good time.

To get the discount price you will need to be a Amazon Prime member. But you can sign up for the free thirty-day membership to take advantage of today's deals. Last year on Amazon Prime Day, the Instant Pot was the second best seller and Amazon actually ran out of the pots near the end of the day.

  1. I have resisted the instant pot as I have been wanting a regular pressure cooker, for canning and the like. I will be interested in how you use yours! Keeping you and yours in our prayers.

  2. I have followed your blog for awhile (years?) and yet am finally persuaded to share since my Dad was diagnosed with gliomastoma late last year. He was 66 at the time and I, the youngest, was 39 with grandkids who were 4 & 20 months. My heart goes out to you. Your family & children. I read persistenpand pray persistently knowing the realities of your circumstances. All our love & prayers - the Grady's.

  3. We got an instant Pot a few months ago and my husband uses it many times throughout the week. Today he cooked soup bones which had a nice bit of meat on them - he just uses the manual setting for 38 minutes. We had enough broth I was able to make two different meals out of it ( last week we did this and I made one dish and froze up 4 baggies of broth.) for my husband and older son( big eaters). Actually,they get 2 meals each out of the one meal; dinner tonight and lunch for work. Our other son is a very sick young man ( has been for years and much of it is a mystery to dr.'s except for the uncontrollable seizures). He has reactive hypoglycemia and needs 6 small meals a day. He has delayed gastric emptying, where his stomach doesn't empty in a timely manner and so he cannot eat many vegetables and a lot of his food has to be soft or pureed ( he can't eat meat but a couple of times a week, pureed.). The broth my husband likes to make out of beef and chicken bones helps me to create some nutritious soups for our Patrick, the sick one. I simmer veggies he can't eat into a broth and mix some of each and use mushrooms blended up in my Vitamix ( Oh, I love, love, love my Vitamix. Just got it this week and I should have gotten this years ago.) to thicken into a stew sometimes. My husband makes up a large portion of white and brown rice in the Instapot 2 times a week so we have the basis for quick meals. He just hits the rice button and it cooks any kind of rice - even brown - in 12 minutes. Perfect. Roasts in that thing are delectable and tender in like 35 minutes. So, we mostly use it now for rice, meats, and broths, which is what our family needs right now. I should make some veggie broth in it. I'm getting around to it.

    Gina, I know what you mean when you talk about food being such a big deal ( can't remember how you said it, but you know what I mean) at gatherings. We don't come from a plain church background ( we spent yrs getting together with German Baptists and would be still, but our son became to sick to travel, so we have been homebound for about 4 yrs) so the amount and variety of food beat anything we had ever seen at other churches in the past. Most of the time, though, it was just everyone pitching in and well organized. There is a prayer meeting/Bible study called Family Worship hosted by a GB family 2x a month and the hostess, my closest friend, really worked hard to put out the main dish and other foods everytime. She really enjoys serving, but sometimes it seems like we spent more time on the meal and clean up than we did on singing, Bible discussions, and prayer. I suggested we do something more limited like snacks or desert and coffee, but no one saw it my way. But I wondered how many people would come if we had no food? ( it was a meeting for any and everyone, not just a particular church) and when I read in Voice of the Martyr that some walked for hours in rain and mud to get to a secret church just to worship it makes me feel we ought to just think about it a bit.

    I will be praying for you all, as well. Your testimonies speak volumes.


I'm still learning how to be a joyful homemaker and I'd love to hear from you!
