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.

Hi If you want to try again, keep checking amazon UK. You just need a new cord. Just bought one. Arrived in a week. Love it. mac1960(213• 08:09 pm, Sat, 5 Jan ) 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 US to NZ coverter plug costs around $20 on Trademe texreid(182• 01:21 pm, Sun, 6 Jan ) 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 )
