We like to think we have an eye for a bargain here at Bring Me The News' Tip Jar column, so we immediately sat up and took notice when we saw this offer from Walmart.

Instant Pots were among the biggest sellers on Amazon Prime Day and in Target's own day of discounts last Tuesday, and now rival Walmart is joining the fun.

It's selling an Instant Pot LUX60 V3 6-quarter 6-in-1 for just $49.

That's a discount of $30 down from its usual price of $79, and is also cheaper than the $59 Amazon was selling a 6-quart Instant Pot for last week, albeit for a better model.

But you'll have to act quick to take advantage of the deal – the offer's only good till the end of Wednesday.

Here's a link to the Walmart deal.

Instant Pots have become must-haves in American kitchens due to their versatility, with each product acting as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, as well as allowing users to saute, steam, warm and boil foods.

This piece by Slate in November explains how it's becoming an "economy and religion all of its own," generating hundreds of websites and recipe books designed to help owners make the most of the product.
