    That looks like a mad yoke altogether?
    Whats your experience with it?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,661 ✭✭✭masterboy123


    Great experience from friends and family.
    I will share my experience once I receive it next week.

    Good day

    I absolutely adore it. Thats a brilliant bargain. Think slow cooker but much quicker


  • Registered Users Posts: 831 ✭✭✭Diziet


    It's a brilliant gadget, used daily in my house.

    \I have both, and it's pretty much all I use. The oven gets turned on about once a month or less.

    Instant Pot - risottos, curries, stews, casseroles, anything that needs a slow cooking

    Airfyer - cooking meat, steaks, frozen things, sweet potato fries

    I literally just bought a pressure cooker and the first line on this thing is "No more rattles and hisses"

    Is this a better yoke?

    Have both also

    My oven only gets used for pizzas

    Fire a small chicken into this and it's done in an hour, small drop of water is all I add
    It won't beat a roast chicken for taste though imo

    I cook all my curries in this :, butter chicken, Madras, chicken curry, casseroles, bacon and cabbage, lamb, beef etc

    It's silent once it reaches the right pressure (15mins or so)

    I just bought this! Can anyone recommend cooking accessories to cook two things in it at once like a curry and rice?

    Do you pressure or slow cook the above?

    Just wondering about adjusting duration (if it's needed).

    Had my eye on one of these for ages

    The only thing I pressure cook is the Chicken

    You can check it anytime and it easy to adjust if slow cooking

    I’m tempted by this offer ,only thing holding me back is I was waiting for the ultra model (couple of extra features) but no sign of it’s release for here


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 4,467 Mod ✭✭✭✭dory


    Currently £69.99. Is that the 60% off price? I'm tempted as well. Was going to buy a George Foreman but might get better use out of this.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,661 ✭✭✭masterboy123


    Original price is 170 pounds and currently on for 70 pounds.

    Thanks. Very tempted. I need to start cooking more than fish and potatoes!


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 4,467 Mod ✭✭✭✭dory


    Bought one! Came to €72 in the end. Amazon wanted €76 if I were to pay in Euro. Paying in Sterling with the N26 card saved a whole €4! Thanks for the tip.

    Thanks op, I was in the market for one of these


  • Registered Users Posts: 856 ✭✭✭RoYoBo


    Best kitchen gadget I ever bought. I have 2 now - got the second on Prime Day at the same 69.99.

    My favourite things to cook with this: Yogurt, Risotto, Curries, Gammon, Brisket, hard boiled eggs (shells just fall off), Chicken from frozen (when I've forgotten to take it out), thawing/reheating home cooked meals and, of course, spuds.

    I also use it to prove bread and to make mulled wine. It makes fantastic cheesecakes too. So many uses ....


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,979 ✭✭✭Caranica


    Almost jumped on prime day. Very tempted now but as I'm almost always just cooking for one so not sure if I can justify it.

    If you have decent freezer space, cooking for one in an IP saves a fortune in both money and time. Also, the timer and Keep Warm function is great for having a hot meal ready to eat when you get home from work.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,979 ✭✭✭Caranica


    Thanks. Picked one up there, remembered for once to use smile.amazon.co.uk to get a donation for my chosen charity. Small but every penny counts


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,931 ✭✭✭dingding


    Thanks OP, Just ordered one.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,661 ✭✭✭masterboy123


    Great, you all are welcome.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,933 ✭✭✭✭Kintarō Hattori


    I've been thinking about one of these for a while now. I haven't been cooking properly since our daughter came into our lives- I just don't seem to have the time.

    Does anyone have any links for recipes?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,661 ✭✭✭masterboy123


    We will get more recipes in the coming week.

    You can check this thread for butter chicken recipe.

    You'd not want to do that. White rice takes 3.5 mins to cook in the instant pot! Just cook it off when finished curry :)
