"Instant Pots are one of the hottest kitchen appliances on the market. And their do-it-all nature makes them a particular favorite of busy adults and one-pot meal fans—especially fitness enthusiasts, including athletes and runners. But the Instant Pot isn’t the only player in the multicooker game. Plenty of other multicookers work just as well, and many for a comparable price.

The clay pot acts as a seasoning chamber, allowing you to cook dishes that are low in fat and cholesterol without added oil or grease.
