If you’re a regular of this website, you probably know that Instant Pot’s claim to fame is it’s line of cultish, multifunctional pressure cookers. But those aren’t the brand’s only kitchen appliances: It also has a line of versatile multicookers like this Aura Pro, which is a slow cooker that can be used to prepare many of the same things as the pressure cookers, just not as fast (pressure cookers cut down on cook time by heating to higher-than-boiling temperatures; slow cookers, as their name implies, do not). Still, you can use this 8-quart, 11-in-1 Aura Pro to make rice, yogurt, and entire family meals, plus you can (attempt to) sous vide with it, as well as prepare hearty roasts and stews to serve throughout the fall and winter. At $60 (or 80 percent off), this Aura Pro’s price is the lowest we’ve ever seen it. But it’s not the only deal to be found right now at Sur La Table, which is slashing prices on everything from bakeware and knives to dining-room decor as part of an extensive warehouse sale that ends October 21.
