After a long day at work, you can't beat the convenience of coming home to a hot meal, prepared in advance. Slow cookers and pressure cookers have long been American family staples, but today's generation of multi-cookers give much more bang for their buck.
Not only do multi-cookers offer reliable slow cooking, but they come with a range of other functions, from steaming to pressure cooking.
Top of the list is the famous Instant Pot. If you've been thinking about investing in one, then this Black Friday is the ideal time as Walmart has the best-selling Duo cooker at less than half price.
The Instant Pot Duo replaces seven appliances, serving as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté, steamer, yogurt maker and warmer. It also speeds up cooking by up to six times and saves up to 70 per cent of the energy used in traditional cooking.
With 14 built-in smart programs, you can cook all your family's favorite dishes at the push of a button, while the 24-hour timer means you can get it ready to go the day before.
The stainless steel cooking pot distributes heat evenly, and is dishwasher safe, so you can dish up without having to wash up afterwards.
