Instant Pot Has a New Product and We Need It ASAP

The new high performance blender from the makers of the Instant Pot is an absolute game-changer!

The Instant Pot is our top-rated pressure cooker. (Here are six reasons we’ve fallen in love with it.) Imagine our delight at hearing about the Ace 60 Cooking Blender, a super-high performance blender from the genius minds who brought us the Instant Pot! The Ace does everything its high-tech competition does, but at a fraction of the cost.

3. The price is right

Currently available only at Walmart, the Ace blender is $99. Compare that with Blendtec and Vitamix models with similar features, which can run you upwards of $299. Early reviews suggest you’d be better off going with the Ace and saving your extra cash for something else.
