It’s still a little too hot to justify turning on your oven, but the weather is getting noticeably cooler, and any urges to bake a cake or braise some short ribs or roast some Brussels sprouts are certainly understandable. Which is why this is exactly the season when it’s good to have an Instant Pot, the cult-y multifunctional pressure cooker that lets you bake and braise and roast with the press of a button. This three-quart model is the right size if you’re cooking for one or two people, or if you’ve got limited storage space in your kitchen. And at just $60, half off the list price, it’s a very good deal. The last time it was this cheap was more than nine months ago, and we’re not sure when it’ll happen again.
