    How does this compare to Instantpot ( the original RRP of this is comaprable to a old gen instantpot )

    That reminds me of my Morphy Richards $79 Vacuum Cleaner, still going strong after years.

      I got that vacuum, kicks arse

    Are these worth it? The wife is annoying me to get her one….What's so good about them?

    • +10 votes

      Just buy it for her; happy wife, happy life and all that.

    •  

      Slow cook dishes but it takes minutes, not hours ;)

      And as I said, very yummy and easy risotto!

      Wife is annoying you to get something so she can cook for you, don't argue, just get it and profit and enjoy home cooked meals.

        My wife makes rissoles with the blood sachet left in them or she makes pasta bake with the plastic lid on top….I don't trust anything she makes for me.

        Oh well deal expired. Less chance of her killing me.

      They cook things a lot quicker= less power bills? Cooks potatoes in 8 minutes as opposed to about 40 on the stove. White rice, 3 minutes (plus cool down but the device is turned off for that), all-day meat dishes in about 25 minutes. Still figuring out how to properly cook meat though. Veges, not so good unless you are cooking them one at a time they turn out a bit 'mushy' but when cooked as part of a stew/curry they turn out quite nice…go figure? Getting my $30 worth but if it packs up too soon I might invest in a more expensive unit.

      Things seem a bit tastier and it's supposed to keep more nutrients in rather than boiling them off. Have ordered a springform pan so I can experiment with cakes and cheesecakes. :)

      •  

        But cant same be done with normal pressure cooker over a gas cooktop to save more on power bills?

        •  

          Sure. If you have one. And have gas. :)

          @EightImmortals: Oh dear. It is not NBN. You can gave natural gas or portable gas cylinders for gas.

        •  

          @Gaggy: You can, but not everyone does. Probably a bit of a false economy to put in gas, have it plumbed and replace your electric appliances just to save a bit on power when buying a fantastic new pressure cooker can save you a lot? :)

        •  

          @EightImmortals: In that case for those who already have gas. Non stick is another thing.

    •  

      If it only costs $49 to get on your wife's good side then there's value right there. But why is she annoying YOU to get her one? Doesn't she have her own money?

      •  

        Not if she's a housewife

    Like this brand, Aldi's pressure cooker is like $59.

    Would have probably considered getting one of this if I hadn't already got one from the Target deal!

    •  

      How do the 2 compare?

    •  

      Yeah if someone can provide info on this it'll be great. Considering to return the ones from Target and get this one instead. I bought two for my sister and myself on the last discount ($79 ea).

      •  

        I have no experience with the Morphy one, but have had the target one for over a year now, find it takes a real long time to build up pressure now and seems to lose pressure intermittently during the cooking time, don't think it will last too much longer.

        •  

          Gah, I hope not. I got one for $29 recently and have upgraded the teflon pot to a stainless steel one. Takes about 5 minutes to get up to pressure depending on the volume of the contents. Though I did discover that they don't keep spares in Australia for them (gaskets etc). Someone else mentioned they come out of the same factory as cuisinart units, dunno if that means anything in terms of quality or spare parts?

        •  

          @EightImmortals: Probably a good thing they have changed to stainless steel, my teflon pot discoloured pretty much on the 2nd or 3rd use. It's a good unit though, however I bought a Morphy's as backup.

        •  

          @JetLi:

          They haven't. :) I had to order it from Amazon and it was twice as much as I paid for the PC. :) But I don't like using teflon so I got the SS one for the peace of mind. Fits perfectly. :)

        •  

          @EightImmortals: I hope it's just discolouration and not the teflon coating coming off!

        •  

          @JetLi: Yeah that was the situation I wanted to avoid, can post the link to the SS pot if you're interested. It wasn't cheap though, about ~$70 delivered. Awesome SS pot though. :)

        •  

          @EightImmortals: Yep post it just in case, however I do think I will chuck it out soon once the Morphy arrives. Does the food stick to the ss pot?

        •  

          @JetLi:

          Here you go, it might even fit your new PC as well?

        •  

          @EightImmortals: Thanks mate!

        •  

          @EightImmortals: like minded about Teflon, and on board with the idea, but for 70 bucks you could probably buy a SS pressure cooker for the stove couldn't you?

        •  

          @Jackson: Not sure. Most of the ones I glanced at were a lot more expensive. Plus the stovetop ones didn't really suit my 'vibe' as much as the electric ones do. :)

        •  

          @EightImmortals: i picked one up from Big W for 50 bucks a year ago, but it didn't pressurise properly and I only have the option of a refund, there are occasionally sales for 79 buck. Aluminium ones are usually cheap but as I have induction they are no good to me

        •  

          @Jackson:

          Get an electric one instead?

        •  

          @EightImmortals: i got the Target one for $20 bucks a few weeks ago, haven't tested it out yet but hoping to today, any pointers or recipes you find good?

          The way I saw it was that the electric ones are a bit easier and safer to use and had preprograms, but the stainless ones were less likely to die (no electronics), didn't have Teflon, we're less bulky, pressurised to a higher psi and so got hotter, and could be opened faster using the running water method. For $20 bucks thought couldn't argue

  •  

    Isnt the normal pressure cooker better for usability and cleaning over these? If you are using gas, you will save on electricity as well.

      yup saw that… considering most ppl only like to review things when they have a bed experience and its $49 its not too bad a product lol

        haven't seen any BED experience reviews yet on product review…. now - that would be a good column to read :D

        •  

          you've been looking in the wrong section! … gotta love typing on a mobile device.. :P

  •  

    From a price point perspective, hard to find pressure cookers any cheaper than this.

  •  

    I have been using mine for about a year on and off and overall it is acceptable for the price point.
    Sometimes the lid seal sits strangely and wont seal to build pressure when starting. The nonstick inner scratched easily by shank bones.
    But I would still buy it again at this price.

    Ran out of stock while I was having a look at reviews. Gutted. :(

      Looks back in stock now, listing is back up…!

      •  

        The page says in stock, but it doesn't seem to add to cart.

        Have tried on multiple devices and browsers…

  •  

    Cannot place order, is it our of stock?

  •  

    The page seems to have died! - Not the first time JB Hifi has pulled a page as the specials get popular… They're definitely tracking click throughs from OZB!

  •  

    bummer,I wanted to scare my redneck neighbour by putting one of these by his letterbox

  •  

    God dammit. While waiting for my password to come via email I've missed out. Literally all that mum has asked for for xmas

    •  

      Can I take this opportunity to now ask everyone about what pressure cooker to buy? It seems between $100 and $150 is the normal price?

      •  

        Also would like to know too, not sure how long Ill have to wait till another good deal since I'm currently missing out using one for meals.

  •  

    I missed my chance because I kept checking the review on this thing ! Damnit ALL !

    Goddamit. Been chasing one these for a while and the one day I go out for a long lunch….

  •  

    I paid about $130 for one of these about 4 years ago. Great appliance. We use it all the time for a wide range of one pot meal ideas. There are some excellent pressure cooking tutes on Youtube

    Would any wise person suggest that oz bargain 10th birthday will likely to see another deal for a pressure cooker?

  •  

    Received my pressure cooker but steam is releasing from the sides of the pot rather than the valve. I've never had a pressure cooker before but it seems faulty to me?

    Has anyone else used their pressure cooker?
