LOS ANGELES (CIRCA) — Seemingly everyone who wasn't already on the instant pot train joined up after Cyber Monday.
According to figures shared by Walmart for the Cyber weekend, one of last year's hottest online buys again reigned supreme as the instant pot was the most popular purchase in 33 states. The retailer reported that it saw pretty solid sales across the kitchen department, with air fryers, food storage and the Magic Bullet blender showing up in quite a few online carts.
In five Southern states and Vermont, buyers snatched up the store's offers for a prepaid iPhone 6 on the Straight Talk network. Meanwhile, iPads were the hot item in Massachusetts and New Jersey. Google's Chromecast came out on top in three states, as did laptops — whether HP, Lenovo or Chromebook. Rhode Islanders opted for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and 50-inch Sceptre HDTVs rounded out the tech lineup, serving as the top item in the District of Columbia.
New York threw its individual flair on Cyber Monday as the only state to list the LEGO Classic Creative Box as its top seller. Walmart said that L.O.L. Surprise Dolls were also a hot toy, and classic board and card games were also were fairly popular.
