Description

This a numpty sale. But that I mean I was a numpty to buy this wonderful Instant Pot from the US as a Christmas present. The US where they use 110v for their electrical devices. Not like here in New Zealand where we use 220/240v appliances. So this great cooker only works with 110v and therefore won't be able to be used in our wonderful land - unless you have a voltage converter or a Step Up & Down Transformer, or something similar that I don't understand.

This particular 110v Instant Pot is an IP-DUO60 V3 model and looks great and no doubt cooks even better- if you live in the US. You can read all about Instant Pots at https://instantpot.com. If you want to know about voltage converters please google this. I did this and my numpty eyes glazed over very quickly.

This Instant Pot comes in its original packaging - in fact it has never been removed from it because even this numpty knew something was wrong when I spotted the US power cord. Whoops,I thought, not such a great Christmas present after all.

So, please remember this is a 110v Instant Pot that can not be used in New Zealand unless you have a special device. Please don't bid on this unless you understand this. Don't be like me. Don't be a numpty.

Pick up from Wellington is fine. Also happy to post/courier. Quite frankly, I just want to get rid oft his 110v dang thing because looking at it reminds me of my muptinesss.

    The ones available from the UK are 220/240v, the US one is only 110v. A new cord will NOT make the US model work in New Zealand. To quote from the Instant Pot FAQ. "The US/Canada Instant Pot models are designed to work only with 110~120v. It will not work with a 220v. Instant Pot has 220~240v model(s) available for sale. Please see www.instantpot.co.uk or on amazon.co.uk." nzvac(179) • Saturday, 5 January 2019

    A plug converter doesn't solve the voltage issue. Any 110/120v US appliance won't work in the NZ 220/240v environment unless you have a device to convert the voltage. A US to NZ converter plug doesn't do that. nzvac(179) • Sunday, 6 January 2019

    What about a step down transformer? It converts voltage. I’m after an instant pot myself but 8 litre and they are not in stock ?? ailsa25(0)07:55 pm, Sun, 6 Jan

    That sounds about right from what little research I did. But you should check with someone who knows about such things. I don't. Maybe your local Jaycar shop, or even better a sparkie, would be able to confirm. nzvac(179) • Sunday, 6 January 2019
