Instant Pot’s slow cooker has been getting its own share of praise and online search by shoppers, and it certainly lives up to the hype.

The slow cooker in question: the Instant Pot Aura 10-in-1 Multi-Use Slow Cooker. This multi-cooker might fly under the IP flag, but it isn’t actually a pressure cooker. Instead, it’s the update to your old slow cooker that you never knew you needed—until now. It’s got all the functionality of a classic slow cooker, plus some other seriously useful features. Like being able to sear meat before switching to slow-cooker mode, which many pot roasts and other red meat slow-cooker recipes call for. Also, it can roast a whole chicken with the roast setting. Not to mention, it can double as a rice cooker, a venture that can be a little dicey in some slow cookers. All in all, there are 10 different function settings. That’s a whole Christmas dinner, people.
