Ease of Use

Easy to master. You'll be cooking like a pro in minutes!


At around $100, it's a solid cooker for a good price.


Ideal pot for a large family.  Advanced cooks might want more control though.


The pressure cooker is bigger than the average pot, made with stainless steel material and a contemporary lid. It has a number of features that are quite useful to help you cook more effectively.

  • Safety. You are guaranteed safety when you plan to use this cooker. It is ETL approved. The added features also promote a safer operation. For instance, it has a handy indicator known as the float valve. The float valve releases pressure when food is cooking. Thus, you can open the lid without the worry of getting burnt.
  • Durable stainless steel. The pressure cooker possesses high-quality stainless steel and accessories. The outer part is made of stainless steel. It is lined with a rubber gasket which locks the pressure cooker. The lid also holds all the properties of the pressure cooker.
  • 6- in-1 electric pressure cooker. With the cooker, you can perform 6 main functions effectively which are that of a rice cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker, browning or sauté pan, steamer, and warmer. Steaming is a healthy way of cooking because it eliminates the use of oil. It also keeps all the nutrients intact. It acts as a warmer as it keeps the food warm until you serve it. You can cook any type of rice with it to perfection.

Key Advantages

  • Cleaning is easy. Stainless-steel Cooking Pot is made of stainless steel which is easy to clean. The lid is also easy to clean because it is made of different pieces which can be taken apart.
  • Saves time. Cooking with this pressure cooker takes less time. You only need to set it up and wait for a few minutes. Additionally, you can perform different functions with it. You can also leave the food to cook as you perform other errands.

Things to Watch out For

Some users have noted that the pot is not as popular as other brands, though in our experience some of the lesser-selling models usually end up being just as good anyway.  There can be  a herd mentality that says the most popular is also the best.  This isn't always true.

Bottom Line

This stainless-steel pressure cooker is one of the best kitchen appliances that will help you to produce some healthy meals. It is also small in size, leaving a spacious kitchen and adding elegance to your cooking area.

That was using a pressure cooker to create delicious, nutritious meals quickly and efficiently. I'm now using this site to pass on my tips and advice to you for buying and getting the best out of your new pressure cooker. Happy Cooking!

I’d just like to point out that you do need to be wary of the seal on the lid wearing or drying as it gets older. Mine is around 5 years old now and I’ve just had to replace the seal. A minor quibble. And to be honest it’s just a small issue but one that needed to be addressed in a timely manner. All in all it’s a great pot and has served my family of five well.

Thanks you for reviewing these pressure cookers. I have a question. Can other liquid, apart from water, be used in a pressure cooker?

    Chris says 12/21/2015

    Good question Rosaline.

    The answer is Yes. Use your imagination and you’ll find that pretty much nay liquid works fine. Wine, beer, bouillon, and fruit or vegetable juices all make excellent cooking liquids in a pressure cooker. Of course how good it takes depends on the type of meat or vegetables you;re cooking. But for example, you can do a great beef and ale stew in a pressure cooker.

Excellent blog Also your web site loads up fast!
What web host are you using? I wish my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

    Chris says 12/21/2015

    Thanks Nancy. People usually comment on the cookers rather than the site itself. 🙂 But I use Justhost.com for my hosting. It’s cheap and works well.

Thanks for the great review. I used it when I bought my GoWise, and I love it.
I have the next generation, with the yogurt setting, and I love this thing so much. I’m glad to see others with positive comments. I’ve been using it for about 6 or 8 months, and now, it’s every day. I’ve even picked up a used epc at the thrift store (yeah, lucky find for $20!) that’s a different brand, and doesn’t work as precisely or as fast. I’ll never boil potatoes again! I now love beans, and I eat steel cut oats fresh daily. My favorite appliance, ever, even more than my microwave. Never thought I’d say that.
