If you’re anything like me, you probably follow lots of food blogs or get bombarded with recipe and food ideas in your Facebook feed. It’s great to see all of the latest food crazes around the world, but sometimes it can get frustrating down here in Australia where we don’t always have access to ingredients and appliances discussed and used on American food blogs.
Case in point, the Instant Pot. For a number of years now I have watched on enviously as Americans make dish after dish of amazing looking food in a matter of minutes using their Instant Pots. At the time we had no access to them here in the land of Oz, so I actually went out and bought myself an Instant Pot alternative, the Tefal electric pressure cooker or Cook4Me.
The Tefal Cook4Me has been a huge asset to my kitchen, we cook rice and pasta in it all the time and its “Cook 4 Me” design has allowed my teenagers to easily cook meals in it too. But, while it’s a great device, I still had a hankering to get a real Instant Pot.
You know how it is when you see Instant Pot recipes you want to try so you try to adapt them to suit whatever cooking apparatus you have. If the results turn out less than perfect you’ll naturally assume it was because you didn’t use the right appliance.
The good news is….the Instant Pot is now finally available right here in Australia!
The good people from Instant Pot have even had the plug adapted to an Australian plug to suit our 240 volt electricity so there’s no need for an adapter.
More than just a pressure cooker, the Instant Pot is a 7-in-1 multi tasker. This amazingly clever device can be your:
So, you can put away your other appliances and make way for the clever Instant Pot!
Here in Australia you can buy the “Duo Nova” model of Instant Pot directly from Amazon.com.au and have it delivered to your door within a couple of days.
The “Duo Nova” is the latest model of Instant Pot, developed in 2019, and is considered a big upgrade in features compared with the original “Duo” model which was released in 2013. The Duo Nova is a lot easier for beginners to use as it seals the lid for you and includes a pressure release button as well as an LCD screen.
Which Instant Pot?
The Instant Pot comes in 3 sizes here in Australia:
The 3L model is the cute and compact model that has a capacity to suit 2-3 people.
The 8L model is for those with big families or who like to entertain a lot, and has a capacity big enough to cook for 8 people.
Whichever size model you choose, I’d recommend grabbing an extra pot for your machine to so you can always have one on the go even if one is in the dishwasher.
Yes, another fantastic feature of the Instant Pot is the fact that the inner pot (where the food goes) is made of stainless steel and is therefore dishwasher safe. And dishwasher safe means less time spent doing the dishes so that will always be a win in my book!
Just imagine tender, fall off the bone chicken and fall apart pot roasts all cooked up to 70% faster than conventional methods. There’s even a free app for your smartphone or tablet that has over 1,000 recipes on it, so you’ll never be stuck for ideas on what to cook for dinner again!
What’s more, once you put the ingredients in and set it to cook, you can walk away and do something else and let the Instant Pot cook the dinner for you – no more slaving over a hot stove!
Sound too good to be true? The Instant Pot Duo Nova has over 70,000 positive reviews in the USA! Surely that many American’s can’t be wrong! It’s only been available here in Australia for a few months but, so far, over 140 Australian’s are loving it too, so there’s got to be something to love about this amazing kitchen appliance.
