Not impressed with the quality

The rim of the inner pot is sharp and jagged and cut my finger during cleaning. Photo attached. The Inner pot is made from cheap stainless steel, the bottom burned on first use and is very difficult to clean. Not impressed with the quality of the materials of this appliance and would not recommend to anyone Show details

Easy to use and easy to clean

I bought the 3-litre size about 4 months ago and find I am using it all the time - not only because it saves time and money, but because I can set and forget it and don't have to worry about saucepans boiling over. I even cook potatoes in it. It's also easy to soak things like chickpeas over-night in the quantities I need (rather than being forced to use the quantity in a tin) and then pressure cook for 5 minutes. Fresh cooked pulses taste so much better. When I first bought it, one of the ring seals didn't work properly but the Australian distributors sent me a new one (two actually), so I was very happy with their service. Very satisfied with the product. Show details

Not top quality material

Inner pot seems made out of cheap stainless steel material. The bottom turned blue / purple only after 4-5 cooks.
The stainless steel of outer case also show symptoms of degradation, my wife has to wipe it carefully to remove stains. Show details

Used nearly daily

I have been using my instant pot almost daily for about 9 months now. For a person that eats heavily plant based- this will make your life so much easier. It makes cooking various grains and legumes a breeze. It's safe, easy to use and easy to clean. I've really enjoyed having this appliance in my kitchen and I think the purchase point is very good considering how much I use it - I have a milk frother that cost me nearly as much and only does one thing! The last point I'd like to make is that it comes with a stainless steel inner pot, which is great for those of us that hate non-stick chemicals. Show details

Making life easier

I’ve had two previous electric pressure cookers and although I loved using them I found the non stick surface on the bowls quickly deteriorated. The big appeal of the Instant Pot was the stainless steel bowl, and the availability of accessories (including bowls). Although in terms of functionality, my previous one cooked just as well, the sturdiness of this machine is so much better. I find it so good I’m planning on getting the 3l for smaller meals.  Show details

Best pressure cooker

Great pressure cooker. We had 5 in our families. And had nothing wrong with it. My mum and dad love their instant pot alots. My sister have a smaller one then the 8L and it work just as great. Highly recommended it. Got it for $220 on Amazon  Show details

Did not work well but very convenient

It is a good device but mine had inconsistent heating so I found results were not reliable and I returned it. Am now looking into other alternative pressure cookers but don’t think there is a good stainless steel pot alternative. So might rebuy Instant Pot and see if I just got a lemon first time around. Show details

I got the IP Nova Aussie version. Couldn't be happier!

What a great product! It made pulled pork in 20'!
Again I was skeptical about do-it-all electrical appliance. I was so wrong about the wonderful instant pot. It made slow cook meals even tastier than the traditional method of cooking them.
I'm used to cooking soup bones and meat stew for hours on gas stove tops. I was also worry about the electricity bill after a month of using instant pot every 2nd day. To my surprise, it did not cost much at all. Especially when compared to my reduced gas bill.
The silver lining is it's supper mess-free and easy to clean. Show details

Just bought one and couldn’t even get through “Test” Water run successfully. Every step seems fine until Step No. 8 where cooker should have Keep Warm or “End”. Tried twice and still skip Step No. 8. Please advise. Sylvia

Are you happy with the quality of the SS bowl?

Garth

Hi, We have a large family so I’m interested in the 8 litre Duo Nova Instant Pot (Australia). Can I actually cook 8 litres of food (let’s say casserole for example) in the 8 litre model? I mean, if I were to fill the pot to its “maximum fill” line would I have 8 litres of food in the pot or less? Thank you.
