It doesn't get any cheaper than this: a 6-quart pressure cooker for just $30.

Best Buy

Still don't own a pressure cooker? As of this morning, price is no longer an obstacle: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy once again has the Insignia 6-quart Multi-Function Pressure Cooker for just $29.99. That ties the lowest price I've ever seen for any cooker of this size. Shipping will run you $6 unless you opt for in-store pickup.

Alternatively, add something to your cart that costs at least $5.01, which will bump you to the $35 minimum needed to bag free shipping. For example, this Casio calculator is $6.99. Now it's like you're paying just $2 for shipping and getting a free calculator.

Insignia's cooker appears nearly identical to the equivalent Instant Pot. It offers 10 preset modes for things like rice, meat, soup and even cake. It features a delayed-start option, an automatic keep-warm function and a dishwasher-safe nonstick pot.
