This seven-in-one machine serves as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, food warmer, sautéer, and yogurt maker. There are plenty of features we love about this model, starting with the Easy Seal Lid, which automatically seals when you close it (as opposed to the older models that require you to do so manually). “It also has an Easy Steam Release Button, which sits an inch or two away from the steam nozzle, that you can press to gently release the steam. (This keeps your fingers out of the way of the hot steam!),” says Kitchn's lifestyle director, Lisa.

Getting $50 off makes this beauty a serious steal. The Duo Plus has nine functions — pressure cook, slow cook, sauté, rice, yogurt, steam, warm, sous vide, and sterilize— making the price even more impressive. All the little details and extra touches make it a true standout, like the steam release switch that makes venting a cinch and the one-touch cooking Smart Programs with 15 options.

Our editors have sung the praises of the slightly larger version of this workhorse in the past. “Everything I made in it turned out crispy and nicely browned all over, and it had a responsive touchscreen and dial that made it simple to adjust the time and temperature,” tools editor, Riddley, wrote. Aside from being an air fryer, the six-in-one appliance is also a broiler, roaster, and dehydrator, plus it can be used for baking and reheating. For those moments when you’re wondering when your food will be ready, the touchscreen keeps you posted on every stage of cooking.
