If you're a chef with limited counter and cabinet space, it can be tricky to figure out what items are worthy of that precious culinary real estate. Should you buy a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, or a rice cooker? Luckily, you don't have to choose. The wildly popular Instant Pot DUO Plus 6 Qt 9-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker manages to cram a rice cooker, a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a yogurt maker, egg cooker, a warmer, a steamer, and a saute pan, and a sterilizer into one tight package.

Today, it's also a great deal! Amazon has cut the price for the six-quart Instant Pot DUO Plus all the way to $74.95, a savings of $45 off its list price.
