Cuckoo multi-cooker
Filed Under Food

Instant Pot might be one of the more talked-about multi-cooker brands on the market, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other products out there that have similar, if not more, functions. In fact, there are plenty of alternatives, many of which come with reasonable price tags, one-of-a-kind features and sleek designs.

For instance, take the Mealthy MultiPot. It’s nine appliances in one, as opposed to Instant Pot’s seven. And then there’s VitaClay’s Multi-Cooker which is made with an organic, aluminum- and lead-free clay pot, compared to Instant Pot’s stainless steel version. Or there’s Cuckoo’s design that’s crafted with a research-based pressure algorithm and patented steam technology. And who could pass up a $25 5-in-1 kettle?

At the end of the day, when it comes to making the leap and purchasing this appliance, it’s all about what aspects are most important to you. With this in mind, we’ve rounded up 8 innovative products and shared what makes them unique so you can channel your inner Ina Garten and get cooking!
