Instant Pot IP-LUX60 Product Review
February 4, 2018

If you’re anything like our family then you’re probably far too busy when you come home from work to even think about cooking. It’s either that, or you’re just too tired to do anything when you get home.

So, what do you do? Buy ready meals, dine out or get take-away? All of these options are expensive, and in the case of the ready meals probably have little to no nutrients left after being nuked in the microwave.

So, what’s the solution?

Well, you have at least two options, suck it up and start cooking when you’ve finished work, or buy a slow cooker and set it running before you go to work.

There are many slow cookers available, and if you’re unfamiliar with what they are, they basically give you the chance to throw in all the veg, meat, spices and stock you require in one pot and switch on to slow cook for a set amount of time (usually throughout the day).

Personally, we looked at various models available, and after doing our research we chose the Instant Pot IP-LUX60. A 6 litre pot which is not only a slow cooker but also a pressure cooker (useful for if you decided to cook quickly in the evening instead). The IP-LUX60 is a 6-in-1 multi-functional cooker which can saute, slow cook, cook rice, steam and warm all  in one.

It has three temperatures, low, medium and high, and the slow cook function comes with an automatic keep warm feature, meaning that if the time finishes whilst you’re still out your dinner will stay warm.

It has a large, easy to use control panel with ten built-in Smart Programs, automatic keep-warm, and 3 temperatures for saute/browning and slow cook. It can also delay cooking time up to 24-Hours.

It is highly energy efficient and comes with 3-ply bottom stainless steel cooking pot, stainless steel steam rack, instructions, recipe book and cooking time tables.

Basic operation is simple, chop up your desired veg and meat, add in your spices and stock (or sauce), and start the desired program – setting the hours as necessary.

We purchased the V2 model back in June 2015 for £99.00, however they now have a V3 model which has egg cooking, cake programs, and the ability to disable the auto keep warm and audible alarms, all for the lower price of £79.99

There is also the Instant Pot IP-DUO 7-in-1 which is very similar in design and use, and sells on Amazon US for $99.99. This model has 14 programs in total consisting of soup, meat/stew, bean/chili, poultry, sauté/simmer, rice, multigrain, porridge, steam, slow cook, keep warm, yogurt, manual, and pressure cook.

If you’re looking to make your life a little easier after work, then I can highly recommend purchasing one of these slow cookers. I can only really comment on the IP-LUX60, as this is the one we purchased, but the overall model range appears to be of high quality, and easy to use.

Check out the full features of each:-

All of these slow cookers do not come with the glass lid as standard, which is useful for the slow cook feature. The standard lid is more for pressure cooking, and the rubber seal and steam valves could become worn through slow cook use. However, the Instant Pot Tempered Glass Lid is available to buy here from Amazon.com for $16.99, or here from Amazon.co.uk for £12.99.

Struggling for cash? Tried and tested solution!
February 4, 2018

What if I told you that you could earn an extra £1000+ a month tax free, would you be interested?

You’re probably thinking, “What’s the catch?” – but what if I told you that there wasn’t one?

I’ll tell you about my personal experience of the following system, in the hopes that it may be of some help for you too.

Firstly, let me start out by saying that I’m not selling you anything, and you will not pay me anything ever! However, if you do choose to sign up, using the links in this post, I will receive a small commission via referral.

Secondly, let me also say that the system I’m about to explain to you does work and YOU WILL make a monthly profit using this system for less than a couple of hours work a day.

And so my story begins…

A few months ago a friend told me about a website called Profit Accumulator. He also told me he’d already made £3000 using their system. Now, at the time I was struggling money-wise, even though I had full-time job – So I was looking for an extra income, and this sounded a little too good to be true.

I decided to check it out what it was, and found it uses a system called matched betting. Matched betting is when you place a back bet with a bookie and then find similar odds on the same game or race with a betting exchange and place a lay bet, it doesn’t matter which one loses as the other will win.

I’ve simplified matched betting to a basic overview, but this site will explain it more in-depth, so don’t worry!

I didn’t jump in straight away because I was still not convinced. I did trust my friend, but I was still unsure. I had already signed up for Profit Accumulator’s trial account, but I still waited two days before actually going through their trial. Their trial account is free and gives you the chance to win up to £45 tax free, so you can try the system out before you buy – if you’re not happy then you can stop straight away.

Their first offer is with the bookmaker Coral, deposit and bet £5 and they give you £20 as a free bet. I watched the video and read through the step by step instructions carefully (I’d never betted before so I didn’t have a clue what I was doing). I deposited the £5 and placed my qualifying bet. To qualify for the free bet you will always lose a small amount initially, but don’t worry as you make this back with the winnings from the free bet you receive.

I waited for the bet to qualify and followed through the instructions for placing my free bet. The site gives you access to various tools, one of which is the calculator, which can be filtered down to the specific bookie and the odds that you are looking for.

This saves you searching through bookmakers and exchanges for similar odds, it then gives you the amount you need to place as a lay bet with the exchange to make your profit on the free bet(s).

I was nervous as I waited for the match to finish, and afterwards checked in with Coral and Betfair to see which had won. Betfair had lost, but Coral had won and I had made £11, minus the small loss on the qualifying bet. Excitedly I moved on to the their second offer, which was BetFred and went through the same procedure. I ended up winning another £20, and in total with both bookmakers I’d made £31. Tax free, quick earnings, which I withdrew straight away into my bank account.

I was elated, I signed up straight away for their monthly offer which is £17.99 a month. This opened up the whole site to me, 63+ signup offers, casino offers, bingo offers, reload offers (for when the initial signup bets are complete) and a support forum.

In summary

This site is fantastic, and I’m still winning today, and financially much better off! Profit accumulator may not be the cheapest, but it has been running the longest and their support forum is fantastic. You can ask the administrators, or members, a question and they will help you in every way possible.

The site and offers are constantly kept up-to-date, and any new free signups are added regularly.


Their monthly fee is £17.99 and their annual fee is £150 – so, if you can afford the initial outlay, then paying annually will save you £65.88. They also run a loyalty bonus where, after a year, the monthly payments are reduced to £14.99.

If you are currently in a similar situation, like I was, then this is a very easy, profitable and tax free way of supplementing your income, and I urge you to give it a shot. Even if you only try their trial,  I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Sign up today, even if you are just after some extra holiday cash, I promise you that you won’t regret it!
