Hello All!

Our slow cooker and rice cooker are on the way out and I want to replace it with an Instant Pot, does anyone know what the equivalent is in Australia?

Cheers

I have the Phillips All in One Multicooker. It's meant to be the equivalent of the Instant Pot. I cook many IP recipes in it, and it's amazing!

The main difference for me is that the instant pot had a stainless steel pot versus the ones in Australia which are all coated in something which after awhile starts to flake. This is why I spent the extra money and got one from the UK and just got a converted plug to make it work here.  It's a pretty cool machine.

Etd. Terrible spelling.  There were no pigs involved.

Am I the only one who thought this was about scoring quickly?

Possibly, but as it was in the recipe section I was thinking it was a request for some brownie recipes?

Isn't it a pressure cooker? Kmart have one that also does rice and slow cooks. I've lost faith in the proper brands after tossing a Tefal recently

oooh I'd like an Instant Pot, they look awesome. I'm very keen to hear of Aussie equivalents. Or PP, does it work fine using the converter plug?

What do you want to do with it? Just braises and “slow cooker” type meals?

Or do you want to make yoghurt as well.

I love my Tefalcook4me.

I've got a Russell Hobbs multi cooker which I think is pretty similar to an instant pot:

I have used a lot of instant pot recipes in it and they turn out fine.  I found this website which is instant pot gold for recipes:

I"ve got the Phillips multicooker, and I LOVE it.

My parents have the Instant Pot, which they just use with an adapator, and they LOVE it too.  We exchange recipes, they are pretty much the same.  

c.sanders, my Phillips one came with 2 pots, one is coated non-stick, the other is stainless steel.  

I highly recommend either.  I haven't used it for rice yet, and struggle sometimes to get liquid ratios right, but I"m sure if I used it more often and remembered what I did last time, I'd have more success.

I have the Philips All-In One and I love it.  it is super convenient, a huge time saver and food tastes much better than simply slow cooked. Not very expensive to buy either.

As a pp mentioned, the deluxe model comes with two different pots, but I have the basic one, and you can purchase the stainless steel inner pot separately here.  I have been happy enough using the nonstick inner pot for now, but it is good to now that all the parts are quite simple to replace.

Oh I didn't know. I actually checked it out at Myer and a few other stores and didn't see it
