Instant Pot Lux for $59 at Walmart

As the name implies, there are certain luxe details about this Instant Pot model. It's the cheapest 8-quart Instant Pot we've ever seen, and features 10 programs with six cooking modes. However, the $59 price tag is valid in-store only. And since Walmart has temporarily suspended its in-store pickup, you'll have to battle the crowds to get it.

Both Kohl's and Walmart have Instant Pot deals at around $59 — and the Kohl's model has better specs.

Instant Pot Duo + $15 Kohl's Cash for $59.49 at Kohl's

The Instant Pot Duo is a smaller model than the Instant Pot Lux above at only 6 quarts, but this Kohl's deal is actually better than Walmart's. It boasts 14 smart programs (compared to 10 for the Lux version), and it's basically the same price after coupon code "JOY". If you care about the $15 Kohl's Cash and free shipping, then this deal is tough to beat.

Instant Pot Nova Plus for $79.99 at Costco

It's pricier than the above deals, but this $80 Instant Pot Nova Plus is still at the lowest price we've seen for this model. Plus, it's another deal that qualifies for free shipping — meaning it's another deal you can score without venturing in-store. The downside is that it's for Costco members only.

But if you're a member, it's a solid buy! It features 15 smart programs (including the new cake, sterilize, and egg programs), start delays, and keep warm functions.

I used the 8qt duo and love it. Great for even two people.
I bought the InstantPot 6 Quart version during a lightening deal on Amazon, but my wife complained it was way too big for just the two of us. When the smaller 3 Quart version came out, I bought that, and she loves it. If you are a large family or frequently entertain, the 6 quart version is the one to get. For a single person or a couple, the 3 quart version is smaller and more suited for their needs.

Happy shopping!
Thanks for posting this! I actually bought both the Instant Pot Lux and walmart.com and the Nova Plus at Costco. Not sure which one my wife will want more? The larger one for the whole family, or the one with more features? Thanks for the info!
