(Pocket-lint) – Instant Pot is synonymous with Black Friday, as Amazon always discounts deeply in the US. Now the Instant Pot craze is spreading to the UK, as Amazon has cut the price of the Instant Pot Duo V2 to £59.99 – that’s a saving of £25.
The Instant Pot Duo V2 is a surface top pressure cooker that’s a bit smarter than pressure cookers of old. You don’t have to adjust the temperature to maintain the pressure or listen to the rattling as you did with hob pressure cookers that were popular in the 1980s. The pressure is managed by the Instant Pot automatically.
It’s more than just a pressure cooker because it’s also a slow cooker, steamer, rice cooker, yogurt maker – it will turn its talents to many culinary tasks – and there’s no shortage of Instant Pot recipes to be found online. It can speed up cooking using pressure, or slow down cooking for stews and melt-in-the-mouth meat dishes – as well as offering a 24-hour delay timer.
This model has a 5.7-litre capacity, 14 different programs and it comes with a full range of accessories. The Instant Pot is one of Amazon’s Lightning Deals so there is limited stock – and it’s only discounted for today.
