You hear about smart bulbs and smart speakers all the time, but many people neglect to add smarts where some of us need it most: the kitchen. The Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi 6-Quart Multi-use Pressure Cooker (opens in new tab) is one of the very first things you need to add to your smart kitchen — especially if you don't own an Instant Pot already. Today it's down to just $99.95 at Amazon while supplies last, which happens to be one of its lowest prices in history. It regularly sells for $150, and we've only seen it drop as low as $90 on extremely rare occasions such as Black Friday and Prime Day.

This app-enabled Instant Pot lets you check on the status of your dinner using an app on your phone, or you could even ask Alexa for updates. It also sends notifications when your meal is done so you can worry about forgetting something's cooking. (opens in new tab)

This takes everything you know and love about the Instant Pot and makes it even better. The Smart Wi-Fi features give you total control over your cooker using just your phone and a free app. Adjust settings, schedule meals, monitor progress, and more. There are even over 1,000 pre-programmed recipes to access, though you could just as easily pick up a cookbook or hit up Pinterest for cooking inspiration.

As usual, this little pot can do a ton of stuff. It'll replace your pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, cake maker, sauté pan, and steamer. There are thirteen smart programs available, and with eleven different safety mechanisms, you can feel good about cooking with this gadget.

Your Instant Pot comes with quite a few accessories, but one downside for lots of people is the lack of a clear lid. Luckily, right now you can pick one up on sale for just $11 (opens in new tab) which fits the 6-quart Instant Pot above.
