Summary: I have two of these and they are essential for everything. Melt in your mouth roasts, makes the very best rice ever, pre-cook ribs in it to tenderize and cut time and use of pellets in my Traegar. Awesome equipment for the kitchen. Set it and forget it ...come home and it's all done. When you have guest, you can serve the foods straight from the cooker and it keeps it constantly warm!! Best investment ever.
Summary: I have had this pressure cooker for two years now and I love it! It makes great fresh beans, soups, meat, potatoes and much more. I use it multiple times a week. Just don't over fill it. The reviews that are negative may have no water (burn to the bottom) or too much water. It will click over to warm if it is not filled right. Check the owners manual for times and directions. I have an electronic version of the manual on my tablet that I refer to as needed.
Summary: I had seen some advertising ads on TV. It looked like a great cooker consider its fast cooking time. After comparing prices, costco has it with the lowest price and excellent return policy. I was happy to give the pressure cooker a try. The instruction was not hard to follow and the food turned out great with only 25' under high pressure, instead of hours and hours with the slow cook.
Excerpt: I was totally amazed with this cooker. I am a great grandma and thought why do I need this.at my age. I made the lamb shanks first in it. Being able to brown the meat and add the rest of the ingredients in one pot was a time saver. It only cooked for 20 minutes and it tasted and looked like it cooked all day.
Excerpt: I purchased this pressure cooker 3 weeks ago and it became my favorite kitchen appliance since then. I use it a lot. Rice cooked in pressure cooker comes out perfect, just follow the instructions. You can make just about anything in a matter of minutes. Pulled pork comes out so delicious, better and faster than out of the slow cooker which I have as well. You can saute and brown food as well. Very efficient, convenient, and preserves all the goodness in your food.
Excerpt: Am new to pressure cooking, have used this 4 times so far, took another reviewer's advice and used the rack insert for more solid items and it worked great. Agree that the instructions could be better, but once you figure it out it is very easy to use. Really like the set it and forget it aspect, plus it does not heat up the kitchen, which is appreciated during the hot summer weather.
Excerpt: This is my first pressure cooker and so far I am loving it. It is so easy to use. I am still getting use to it and have only cooked a few things but it all came out perfect. Last night I made Chili in 8 minutes. It was delicious! I have been cooking a long time so I do change recipes to my liking. But, after cooking for 45 years I am happy to have this cooker to lessen my time in the kitchen. I can't wait to try other things, especially dessert.
