Features

This Fagor model has been designed with features that reduce environmental effects. The cooker has an LED screen which has a soft-touch control button, and it also has two independent pressure-control valves.

  • Simple and safe. The pressure cooker has a self-locking lid, and the lid goes hand in hand with the automatic pressure release feature. The lid is designed in such a way that it will not open while under pressure for safety measures. It is also preloaded with an anti-heating safety setting and controlled automatic valves. 
  • 4-in-1 multi-cooker. The cooker has stainless steel which has precise settings for pressure cooking, rice cooking, slow cooking and even yogurt making. With this pressure cooker, all you need to do is set the timer and let it do all the work. It is also designed to cook all day long with a steady flow of low heat. Setting the timer is a perfect option because when the timer runs out it beeps and goes back to the warm setting.
  • Easy to use. This pressure cooker is delightfully flexible and operational in all settings. It is also made of stainless steel, and its accessories are detachable to facilitate easy cleaning. The external part of the cooker can be easily cleaned using a mild detergent and a damp fabric. The inside part has a non-stick coat making removal of leftover foods simple.

Key Advantages

  • Less cooking time. Although the cooker uses less time to prepare a meal, everything that is cooked using the pressure cooker turns out pretty much perfect. Most users have loved the browning function because it does it perfectly within a few minutes. The warming function also keeps the food warm and ensures that it is ready to serve.
  • Easy to clean. The cooker has removable parts which make it easy to clean. You can detach the parts and clean them one by one. It is also made of stainless steel making it easy to clean.
  • Durable. The Fagor LUX has been constructed from 18/10 American made stainless steel making it  exceptionally durable.

Things to Watch out For

Users must note that the cooker has no handles so pouring out the food from the pot may be a bit challenging. Additionally, you do not get a rice scoop with your purchase of this unit.

Bottom Line

It's not what can you cook with it, it's what can't you. If you want to upgrade your cooking methods from the old fashioned ones, purchase the Fagor LUX for great results in all cooking modes.  Let me know how your yogurt turns out :-).
