A $50 Instant Pot multicooker to recharge mealtime

Plus, a $60 countertop convection oven and toaster at Best Buy.


We're nearly through with week three of coronavirus quarantine, and you're probably either finding your groove in the kitchen or ready to burn it all down and start over. Either way, an easy new kitchen gadget -- like this 6-quart Instant Pot Viva multicooker -- will breathe some new life into your mealtime operation. Right now the popular appliance costs less than $50 (down from $120) for today only at Best Buy, as one of its Deals of the Day.

Instant Pots make the most of kitchen space with many useful functions all wrapped up into a frame the size of a rice cooker. It works as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, warmer and more. And there are literally millions of recipes floating around online for the Instant Pot, so if you're running thin on dinner ideas, it'll likely inspire some new family favorites. The Viva is fully programable so you don't have to guess on cook times. Plus it comes with a sear function to make a good old fashioned pot roast or beef brisket from start to finish all just the one pot.

Not to be outdone, you can snag this Cuisinart countertop convection oven and toaster for $70, down from $160. Large enough to hold a 12-inch pizza or six slices of bread, this toaster will help mornings run a little smoother for any big crew.

Best Buy offers free shipping on the Instant Pot or toaster oven. You can also choose no-contact curbside pickup and grab your new appliance later today, pending inventory.
