We’re all spending more time at home lately, and, for some, that has equated to more time for planning, preparing and enjoying our meals. That, paired with an increased interest in cooking, has contributed to a surge in popularity of the tried-and-true slow cooker. If you already have an Instant Pot or multicooker, you might wonder what you would do with a slow cooker. But, if you’re home all day, the ease of putting your meal together in the morning and having it ready to eat once work ends is certainly appealing.

Luckily, Instant Pot's programmable slow cooker, the Aura, is nearly 50% off on Amazon right now. Like all of the gadgets made by Instant Pot, this slow cooker is all about functionality — it comes with 10 built-in smart programs, so you can roast, stew, bake, steam, slow cook, sauté, ferment, warm and more. You can manually set cooking time and temperature for complete control over your meal, and the 24-hour 'Delay Start' feature lets you adjust cooking time to suit your schedule. Plus, the automatic 'Keep Warm' function keeps your finished dish at the perfect temperature until you're ready to serve.

The Aura is designed for easy everyday care – the ceramic cooking pot is removable and has a nonstick finish for fuss-free cleanup, and, the cooking pot, lid and steaming/roasting rack are all dishwasher safe. We love that the lid is clear, so you can monitor your meal's cooking progress without releasing heat or steam, and we think the oval shape is so versatile. Whether you're slow-cooking a large cut of meat or simmering a hearty soup, the Aura is sure to simplify your home cooking routine.

Amazon shoppers are loving the Aura, too. There are more than 5,000 five-star reviews, and one writes, "I literally use this pot for everything! It is a tremendous sidekick in the kitchen. What did I do before this?" Another calls the Aura a, "Great addition to my Instant Pot collection. I use this for the nights I know everyone won't be able to eat at the same time. I can make a one-pot meal and then keep it warm for hours. I use it mainly for soups and skillet-style meals but have also used it for proofing dough, hot dips and baking smaller dishes."

Whether you're a loyal devotee to all things Instant Pot or just want to upgrade your old slow cooker, this is an amazing chance to get the Aura at a major discount.
