Found 11th Jan
Ive heard so much about this pot and I was going to buy this two days ago for £140 but for some reason waited went to get it today and its another £40 off. If you use the amazon smile page they will donate to a charity of your choice as well.

This apparently saves loads of energy that would be used in an oven and for people like me its great to cook something healthy really fast, read the reviews and they seem brill. so handy for anyone who was looking for one really hope this gets me cooking again!

The cook book for this is free here

Can I ask what you do with them?


Hi dear I do all sorts of cooking.. Mainly Indian though .. In the main pot I have made everything from biryani to pulao rice to curries to sweet dishes.. I do pot in pot.. Have purchased steel boxes that go in one on top of each other to cook multiple items like rice, dry veg curry and lentils (dal). I also steam veggies, fish, etc using a steamer insert bought separately as well. Made idlis (South Indian) as well. Just tried boiling eggs today and they came out perfect too. I'm yet to try baking but do most of my cooking in these. It helps to be part of various IP groups on fb to get ideas and inspiration and also ask questions if need help.

Now that's what you call inflation 60>140
decent enough price but it does drop lower than that sometimes.
All praises from me as well.. I have a 6qt and a 3qt. Use it daily.

Cosori also has a stainless steel pot, and online comparisons with IP are very similar. Costs £50!
Just checked on Amazon, currently unavailable

Dumb question, but is this basically an electric pressure cooker with programmes ?

If it is, is it fundamentally any different (apart from price) to wilko.com/en-…514

It says its a pressure cooker, but an expensive one at £100 in my opinion. That £25 one you refer too looks half decent though may give it a try, thanks.
More or less paying for the convenience of online recipes with "Instant Pot" timings
Big pinch of salt with the RRP. It was on TV just before Xmas at £110, even on that Xmas Schofield itv programme it's RRP was stated as £110.
the wilko one will do the same job i teckon it just hasnt got stainless steel innerpot just a non stick mine is a bella pressure cooker which is a mid range priced one about £60 that has got the non stick liner as well i may try the wilko one as a spare back up myself it looks to be the same kind of thing
Everyone who has one seems to say they can cook whole chickens in 30 mins, rice in minutes? I can't comment as I haven't used one yet but everyone who has one uses it daily - my electric oven is expensive so trying to find something to use less energy

Where did you get your 3qt one from please? I've not seen it in the UK.
i have one of these and they are brilliant. u can do a whole chicken in 20mins. u can also ‘brown’ meat using the ‘saute’ mode first which is very useful and saves on washing up u can do all sorts in this inc desserts etc

The headline cooking times are misleading. You also need to factor in time to get it up to pressure, which can be as much as fifteen minutes. Depending on recipe, it can take fifteen minutes to half an hour to reduce pressure naturally, which is recommended for joints of meat. I use less energy with pressure cooker than oven, and it's brilliant for cooking joints , beans, lentils and cheaper cuts of meat. Chicken and meat turn out better than in oven. I wouldn't bother using it for some things like eggs and porridge as they cook quicker on hob or microwave.

Could you please link to a product you recommend when you say steel boxes for the instant pot?

Do you mean this type of steel box: amazon.co.uk/Acc…ies

Although they seem to be classed as steamers.

Thanks.

Got it from USA dear.. Ordered it to a relative and then bought it back when we visited them. Dnt think you get that size here in UK.

Yes something like this but mine has 3 boxes with lid.
I own one of these as this price is expensive.

Thanks. Maybe I need to search more on Amazon and ebay to see what is available.

Did you get your steel boxes online or from a local shop?

Edit: Here is a 3 tier one for anyone interested. Unsure if the price is the best though: amazon.co.uk/dp/…c=1

Only issue is needing to cook foods with same times.

Make me a book!! I keep looking at my IP and raising an eyebrow. I keep cooking curry in my casserole. Can't decide if I really need it!
This is still a deal, not an amazing one but doesn't deserve this level of chill.

No just a convertor as the wattage is the same. You need a step down convertor in countries like India if you want to use a pot from UK there.

It's the initial hesitation.. Once you start you won't stop honestly.. Give it a go.. Join fb groups and follow recipes and ideas. You need to play with it to get used to it. I know the negative brigade here dnt wNt to hear this but this is one item in my kitchen I can't live without as it's made my life with toddler twins and full time job so much easier!

The price isn't too bad if I'm honest.. And about cooking foods that need same cooking times.. You will get more confident as you use it more and understand how to find a happy medium. For example if I cook dal in one box rice in other and dry veg curry in third, I know dal needs more time so I will either soak it for few mins bef cooking or use hot water from kettle to make the cooking faster. All three things cook in 15 mins and no clean up at all other than the 3 boxes. Happy days!

Also I got all my accessories online either from amazon or ebay but some here and some in USA.

May be you are right and I dnt want to sound like an advocate for IP but I have boiled 6 eggs today in IP in 5-7mins and have made porridge in the past (with no stirring or baby sitting) in 10mins.
I purchased one for £79 on black Friday from Amazon. I also tried the Pressure King Pro and there are lots of cheaper ones. However the IP is really well made, specifically the inner stainless steel pot which can be put on a hotplate with the lid on. I have a second inner pot so I can then cook more things for the same meal and of course you can get inner stackable pans as another accessory to cook multiple things at the same time.

I haven't stopped using it every day since then and my wife loves that I now do most of the cooking

You only need a plug shape adaptor to use in India. They use 220v 50hz, UK items will work without issue.

The advise above is incorrect.
