Where to buy an Instant Pot in the UK, Europe and other 220~240 voltage countries

Have you been waiting for the Instant Pot® to come back in stock? Well, it's back! You can order it from Amazon right now.

Depending on when you read this, delivery won't be straight away as the cookers need to arrive and be delivered to Amazon first. Right now it says you can order it now and it'll be in stock on 10th July 2018.

Its summer arrival is perfect as the Instant Pot doesn't release any heat into the kitchen. Above all with this heatwave we're having in the UK. Then come Autumn it will keep earning its keep.

At the time of writing this (July 2018) only the Instant Pot DUO 6 quart / 5.5 litre is available.

Where to buy

Amazon or the Instant Pot UK online store are always the main places. Sometimes Costco has them in stock but not at this time. Amazon already has them ready to order right here.

Can I use it in my country?

If you live in a 220~240 voltage, this is the Instant Pot for you.

What about the plug?

Instant Pot Lime Pickle

I already have a Quick Lime Pickle recipe from a while ago. This recipe I'm posting here is the longer version, you need to steam the limes first and let them rest in the fridge for 3-4 days so you need to start with plenty of time.

We use the Instant Pot DUO to mature the lime pickle overnight (thank you Amanda for the tip!) but it will still be even better in 6 months! So make sure you let it mature in the jars too and let the flavours develop.

Don't worry if your Instant Pot or multicooker doesn't have the Yoghurt function, I give you a solution to that below. 

Lime pickle is great with poppadums. With a curry. With a pint of lager. With a glass of wine. With friends. On your own.

It's just great.

Does the photo look Christmassy? That's because Lime Pickle is one of our Christmas Makes but you can make it round every day.

It makes great gifts!

Thank you Mike B for being my recipe tester!

Instant Pot Giant Cous Cous with Seafood

Instant Pot Giant Cous Cous with Seafood

I had never cooked giant cous cous until a few weeks ago when I saw it in Aldi. I tried a quick lunch experiment and it turned out well so last week I decided to recreate it with a few added touches. It turned out amazing and it's so quick and easy.

You can scale this recipe up or down. Always remembering the rule about filling your Instant Pot up to half way when pressure cooking ingredients that expand or foam up.

The most useful thing I can tell you when cooking giant cous cous is the ratio and the cooking times and then you can play to your heart's content so:

Ratio is 1:2.5. That's one cup of giant cous cous to two and a half cups of liquid (homemade stock in this case).

Cooking time is one minute on manual with a 6 minute QPR. This means that six minutes after it finishes cooking you let out the rest of the steam trapped inside by performing a Quick Pressure Release.

Please note that this recipe is for giant cous cous, not normal cous cous which cooks in no time with hot water.

Instant Pot Squid Stew

Instant Pot Squid Stew

This Instant Pot Squid Stew is so tasty and it's amazing how tender the squid goes! I'm posting it quickly for Dejanka to have and will make it prettier later on. Serve it on its own, with plain rice, with pasta or with quinoa like Alli did below. If you want a quick method to cook quinoa in your Instant Pot (the best quinoa), just ask.

LittleT loved it!!

Let me know if you enjoy it.

Instant Pot Thai Pork Larb Recipe (Thai Minced Pork)

Instant Pot Thai Pork Larb Recipe (Thai Minced Pork)

I have the huge luck of having a child who eats well and, despite asking for pasta all the time, is open to trying new things.

The little Tapita loves eating Thai Larb with plain rice and the Instant Pot makes it a breeze. As I’m low carb it’s just a spoon for me, ready to dig in to that delicious savoury pork.

That said, you could totally serve this in little gem lettuce leaves as if they were wraps (imagine serving those as starters, how pretty would they look?). This Instant Pot Thai Larb is full of flavour so it’s great any way you choose to eat it.

I have added fresh red chilli as an optional ingredient as it's great with it. If you too have a child who hates spicy food, just use it the sliced fresh red chilli as garnish at the end of cooking your Instant Pot Thai Larb.

Oh and you know I'm a daredevil who tries to reduce the liquid used when pressure cooking to the minimum, right?

Ready for the recipe?

Instant Pot Nasi Goreng (Malaysian Fried Rice)

Instant Pot Nasi Goreng (Malaysian Fried Rice) - a super easy midweek dish or delicious side dish

You may have gathered by now that I am a huge fan of soy sauce and fish sauce. Yes, I love umami and I love Nasi Goreng, which means “fried rice” in Indonesian and Malay. I don't eat carbs all that often nowadays since I've been on a low carb diet for the past year so, when I do eat them, I want them to be really tasty.

I have tried to simplify this dish as much as I can to make it a really easy midweek meal or even a lovely weekend side dish when you're cooking a variety of dishes for one special meal.

I like Nasi Goreng with chicken but I have marked chicken as optional because you could totally r remove the chicken and avoid the omelette if you don’t eat eggs and have a very tasty vegetarian dish.

Thank you very much to Francine and Lucy for testing this recipe for me in their Instant Pots and for their feedback. Make sure you check out Lucy's new website, Fresher Bites, particularly handy if you have someone in your life who's off to university and wants to learn to cook but also anyone who wants to learn to cook in general, I especially recommend her Safe Cutting video.

I add turmeric to a lot of dishes because of its anti-inflammatory properties and in this case turmeric has a second use. Add it to the beaten eggs to have an omelette with a fantastic colour. The omelette is made PiP (pot in pot), i.e. in a bowl/dish on the trivet. Read my post on cooking PIP in your Instant Pot here.

Here’s the recipe, I hope you like it!

Instant Pot on Amazon's Prime Day and the other best deal

Instant Pot on Amazon Prime Day and other amazing deals!

Is the Instant Pot taking part on Amazon's Prime Day? Oh yes it is and in a big way with the Instant Pot DUO 7 in 1 8 LITRES at the lowest price it has ever had (by far!).

Now, you all know I am a big Instant Pot fan, so much so that I joined the Instant Pot UK team last year after running my Pressure Cooking UK with Feisty Tapas Facebook group for a few months.

There is nothing to worry about using a modern day pressure cooker as robust as the Instant Pot! It doesn't hiss nor rattle (in fact it doesn't make much noise at all!) and it comes with a ton of safety features to give you peace of mind. Not just that, it has a huge online community. Instant Pot UK offers a Facebook group as an extension of its customer care, the Instant Pot® UK Community, which I run. We have awesome clients who share amazing recipes every day, who are wonderfully supportive, you will never be short of inspiration with the community and me by your side.

To think I didn't even want an Instant Pot! Over two years later, it has made my life easier day after day, when you have a chronic pain condition like fibromyalgia, this is a life saver, above all midweek, when you have to feed a child, have had a long day of work and can't think of anything. It's just as easy as reheating a previously instantpotted meal from frozen in about 15-20 minutes.
