Normal price I think
All Pressure Cooker Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2018
I got this on Prime day too but sent it back and got the Instant Pot. Lol. My main reason is that I like the stainless steel pot that comes with the Instant Pot. Its more durable than the non-stick, you don't have to worry about it peeling and you can put any accessories in it. Plus it's easier to buy replacement pots and accessories for. You can get them on Amazon and other places. Plus there were a few more variables with the settings that I liked. They are both similar though and this Crock-pot one is good value for the price. :D
I got this on Prime Day and I know someone with an Instant Pot. It's literally the same thing, but cheaper. I can't see anything the Instant Pot does that this doesn't. I wanted it for yoghurt and beans mainly and it's really good, can recommend!
Yeah try the sauté function on your pressure cooker. It saves washing up as you can do it all in the same pot. Also, all flavours are kept within the one pot too. It depends which pressure cooker you have with regards to the browning/sauté temperature though. My Instant Pot has low, medium and high so it covers all of my browning needs quite well. It sautes for up to 30 minutes too. You can also use the sauté function at the end of pressure cooking to thicken sauces. Plus use it to heat soup and reheat food etc. Its like using a pan on the stove. Try it. ;)
absolutely and yes saute and browning. for browning tho i'll put it on the frying pan. i nevery actually used saute - should i? isn't it 'gentle browning'?
Sauté is a good feature too. ;) I like to sauté before pressure cooking or slow cooking. I agree that not all 12 modes are needed though. You can use use the pressure cooker or manual mode and select the timings. I suppose it’s down to individual preference.
Jesus i miss it every time hahah
All gone...again! 5% off offer by adding ebay code for me PRICEDROP5
3 litres is quite small
Third time this has been posted this week! FWIW, I've got one and I'm happy with it for the money. Big enough for two people.
Really want the 5 litre one
These must be great compared to normal - as all the hassle - the complexity of the timings, turning it on and off and the weights are done for you. My ordinary full hassle stainless steel pressure cooker is 5L and I bought it in 1999 for £30 - it's still going strong but tends to fall out of use compared to the steamer. Frankly I normally use it as a pan for pasta. However the video below was the first time I saw this device (just skip to its use - its long and boring, and it seems stupid to use it for oatmeal which takes 3 mins in the microwave) and had me consider buying an electric one - I see he uses a 5L instant pot. I love the idea of having a cooked meal waiting for me without much hassle.
The browning button works the same as what you mentioned. You do it with the lid off and can brown 3 minutes at a time. Keep pressing ‘browning’ until you’ve done it. Then when you put the lid on you can use the pressure cooking functions. Sounds the same as yours, just repackaged differently. They don’t advertise that function with yours either. God yeah...I know how bad Currys can be to make returns. I was surprised you got your click and collect. I’ve done it before and been told they’ve not got the item when I’ve got to the store. Currys are pretty useless. XD
Not crispy, but very moist. One chicken, at least up to MIN level with chicken stock (water and a stock cube), add any herbs etc, and 25 minutes on MEAT.
Not too bothered. If I press the STEW button with the lid off, the pot heats up enough to brown. I can then turn it off, back on again, and set it stewing properly. I wonder if the "browning" button is just a label change on the control panel. Besides, have you ever tried to return something to a Dixons Group company? ;(
Thanks for letting me know. Definitely get an Instant Pot. I got one last month. Its well made. You should hopefully like it. Plus there are lots of accessories and the stainless steel pot is great. (y)
@scarecrow @terriclarkfan Thank you both so much. This is the version I was hoping for. I ordered one off Currys eBay. I am hoping it's the same model. The one pictured and described on Currys is the older version without the browning function. I hope I get sent the same one that you've got. I ordered one off Amazon too just in case but the wait is 1 to 2 months.
@Loubou Sorry, just saw your message. My machine's the same as Scare_monger's, obviously. Just did a 1.6kg fresh chicken in 25 minutes! Wonderfully moist.
Hiya, I picked one up from currys Dundee. Here is a photo of the buttons on mine. :)
Which version is it please? The one with the ‘meat/browning’ button on the right or the one with just the meat button on the left? I can’t tell from your pic as it’s a bit blurred. :)
Just click and collected one from Wakefield. I'm stunned that Dixons Group C&C actually worked!
Just click and collected one from Currys Wakefield. Mint condition.

The Amazon one is better because it’s the newer version with the sautéing/browning function.
Thanks @Mandalin, i did post this in a comment above but my post has never appeared? :/ i see that a 2 year accident and breakdown cover is also available for £5.25 from Amazon, thats a great deal!
Still available here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XD81RXF?tag=22&ascsubtag=1ba00-01000-org00-win10-other-nomod-uk000-pcomp-feature-pcomp-wm-3-wm-1-wm-8&ref=aa_pcomp
Instant pot is awesome, but it's so badly priced in Europe. I was in Canada over Prime day and same pot was $69 Canadian and $59 in USA for that sale. Normal price is about $99 Canadian in a lot of shops, including equivalent of our Tkmaxx. If you look at USA Amazon they have so many varieties, sizes, colours. We get one. If it's in stock in a first place.
True, Amazon are able to sell this much cheaper, I just clicked on the link and got a reminder at the top of the page saying I previously bought this for £69 of them.
If you want a stainless steel pot, you can buy a Cosori for around £65. Does very well in direct comparison to instant pot on YouTube
The difference between the two is the inner pot on this 115 one is made of stainless steel, and therefore is more durable (and some say conducts better with the internal element), the 80 one is teflon. The 80 one was 60 few weeks back, and im sure will be again soon.
Normal price. Very expensive on Amazon these days. A hot deal would be about £80. Cold.
There are loads online really really simple to use
Bought one of these about 4 years ago and too scared to use it. Still in the box in one of the kitchen cupboards somewhere. Got one of the all in one cookers from Aldi about 2 years ago and love that..... Seems a lots safer having the timer etc on it. Any good pointers / recipes to get me using the pressure cooker would be appreciated (embarrassed)
Sorry probably old age catching up with me.
No I was talking about the other one mentioned x
Dispatched from and sold by Amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Morphy-Richards-Pressure-Cooker-2-7/dp/B00CVRBJW8
It would be good for having a meal ready when you come home when its cooler. If you want that.
I already have a stove top one too. Wanted the electric one for convenience as a one pot meal rather than my slow cooker.
Yes it is and will last a life time or untill the gasket gives out. The electric one wont last a life time.
Thank you OP just ordered mine (highfive)
This one is a stove top one
Aluminium, not stainless steel
Cheapest it's been & for a while. Have some heat.
Old school these are, my nana used to use a pressure cooker with a weight on the top that would whistle. Very good find these are great
Not sure why this is so cold. This is the cheapest I've ever seen it. I'm tempted!
I think people have voted cold because they think it’s just a slow cooker. Maybe you should have written a description explaining that it has got other functions too. It is a pressure cooker, sautés, sears, steams, reduces and slow cooks. It’s the same as an Instant Pot but has more pressure settings. It’s expensive but a good price compared to what it usually is. :)
no its not....but that was the other one is an oximoron
No, it's an oxymoron.
may be expired £20 not getting applied.
Howdo you get £20 off?
Where do u get the code from plz
Came to £36.99 for me (y)
Thanks OP. Been thinking about getting my first pressure cooker for some time now but just couldn't make my mind up on which one. Have gone for this. Mine came down to £36.99 with the £20 and 5% off.
You're welcome and thanks for letting me know. ;)
A few minutes at most to reach pressure. Thanks for link to USA recipes. Much more on there.
That’s great. I’ve not used mine yet. Not sure what to cook. I might do chilli con carne. Here’s the link to the USA recipe book. It’s different to the one that we get in the UK. crockpot recipes usa How long did it take to reach pressure before the cooking started please? Did you take note? :D
Well I cooked the Thai green curry from the recipe book and in was amazing! Just need a list of other recipes now.
I've not used one before. If you look on the Crock pot USA site, you can get the recipe manual for it. Or use recipes for the Instant Pot. Should be similar. There will be loads on Google and probably their Facebook page. :)

They seem to be out of stock now - but in case they come up again.... I got one for £15.99 - total bargain. I already have a Breville Fast Slow Pro that I bought for over £!50 18 months ago. This cooks just as well. It is missing a lot of features, but for simple saute and pressure cooking it does just fine. Downsides: * the timer is manual, doesn't ring (despite saying it does), and doesn't include time to get to pressure (so you have to mentally add that to the cooking times for any recipes you find online). This 'time to get to pressure' will be different for each recipe, so when cooking a recipe for the first time, it is best to watch over and time it until the red button comes up (ie pressure reached), then adjust the timer dial to the recipe's stated cooking time. Add this extra time to your recipe so it is a no-brainer next time. It does turn off the cooker when done, and allows the pressure to drop gradually. This means that if you are cooking something that needs a fast release, you will need to set a reminder (e.g. on your phone) to remind you to go and release pressure manually. * the recipe book that comes with it is awful - just looks like a mishmash of recipes that copied from online - some are not even for an electric pressure cooker. Not a major problem, there are millions of Instant Pot recipes that work just fine if you add on the time to get to pressure to the cooking time. These problems are not much of a bother to me, but might be for someone new to pressure cooking.
Whilst looking for something else I came across this on eBay and it was £15.99 again(cheeky) so I’ve got one. Thanks op!
Must be a case of bad luck, I reserved it in two stores and picked it up for my sisters (nerd)
Ordered this twice and both times were a “ghost” order. (Money charged to credit card but email doesn’t come through and not there when you go to store.) ebay price now £39.99 - I offered them £16.99 and explained why asking for price match. Declined :(
If, like me you're attracted by the price, but no local stores have the item available and delivery is an extra £4 which makes the deal taste a little bitter. Have a look at the 3 year instant replacement warranty, I usually add this to my electrical purchases anyway. It's about £6.20. This is counted as a separate purchase and because you're then purchasing two items delivery on the cooker becomes free. Or look at it another way, pay delivery at full price and get your 3yr protection for about £2.20. Hope someone finds this helpful.
It vents thru the top valve, the larger thing visible on top of the handle. It has two pressure settings I and II and a position for releasing the steam quickly, it hisses rather than whistles. Great price for stainless steel, I bought one a while ago when on offer to replace my corroded aluminium one. Would like a bigger stainless steel one for nice price though....
Looks like it goes though the handle instead...
Got this one from Dunhelm for £28. Not as quick as my old Fissler of 30 years use (but 5x the price) but safe to use. Probably wont last as long. For this price I do recommend this cooker.
Where is the thingy at the top that goes round and whistles?
only if you want to slow cook fast, this thing has made my mothers sunday dinner a lot more palitable
If you have a slow cooker do you need one of these?
Had the teleshopping advert of this on a loop all night after coming home drunk. Actually want one now.
We have one, good for stews but some things you don't save any time as it takes a while to get to temp/pressure
had mine for about 6 months, used several times a week. Love it. Cooks chicken breasts from frozen in half an hour. Lots of reports of issues with the 6L on the Facebook groups so personally I'd stick with the 5.
Thanks, just ordered this. Have been waiting since Christmas when it went out of stock. It has been cheaper previously, but you can't build that time machine.
Sorry it was in store at Chelmsford x
Sainsbury’s have the 8-1 for £40!
Posted mainly for people who have been waiting. It has been out of stock for 6 months and many paid quite a lot. May be I posted in deal section as this is not a dea
I bought one in Argos last year, and after having problems with three, I bought a Cosori. Cosori is much better quality, and their customer service is excellent. Argos assistant said they had a lot of returns of pressure king pros. Two of mine had faulty display units, and one started off fine, then wouldn't come to pressure in spite of trying all the troubleshooting tips. For anyone considering a digital pressure cooker who has not used a pressure cooker before, the headline cooking times don't include the time taken to get to pressure, which could be from 5 to 20 minutes depending on amount of liquid used. For some things, by the time you factor in heat up times, you don't save a lot of time. That said, for some things, digital pressure cookers are brilliant.
I have this and it's OK unfortunately due to operator indifference it now resides in the cupboard !!
Should I add heat or pressure (party)
Thanks for post this deal, heat added!
I thought it was a pokeball!
950W pure pressure power
Looks to me like a portable bluetooth speaker how many watts can it chuck out (cheeky)
