No, it was not the Echo or Fire TV.

Just in case you have no idea what Prime Day is, it’s Amazon’s biggest shopping day for Prime Members to take advantage of a vast majority of deals.  It’s similar to Black Friday but without having to endure the long lines, deal with annoying shoppers or wake up really early for the limited number of door buster deals.

Prime Day 2016 was the biggest one for Amazon, with its sales being 60% higher than the previous year.  And the bestselling item wasn’t one of Amazon’s devices – it was actually the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker, with over 250,000 units sold on Prime Day.

Instant Pot ($99.99)

This multi-functional cooker can be used in 7 ways – as a Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Saute/Browning, Yogurt Maker, Steamer and Warmer.  It’s very easy and convenient to use with its adjustable cooking modes for various cooking results and lifestyles.

The Instant Pot has become a favorite among Youtubers and bloggers.  Thanks to its marketing strategies, this kitchen essential has an impressive social media fan-base.  On Facebook alone, the product’s page already has 48,000 likes and followers.

But Instant Pot isn’t the only multi-cooker in the market, here’s a list of other Amazon favorites:
