I had friends and my sister rave about using a pressure cooker for everything. Being mostly a plant-based diet person, I wanted to be cooking many more legumes and other beans, but hated 2+ hour cook times for garbanzos just to make hummus, or Chana Masala. Though a small kitchen, and this is not a tiny unit, this has become my almost everyday go-to cooking solution. Perfect interface features; a dream to use. I'm cooking an expanded range of new foods - solid tool. Nice! This PC is the bomb!
I could not tell from the product that is was refurbished. I expected scratches or food residue at the price but it had neither. I have made several meals in it and it works well, giving crock pot meals in much less time.
Reduce time spent in the kitchen preparing meals with the help of this 6-quart electric pressure cooker--it cuts cooking times up to 70-percent when compared to traditional stovetop cooking methods. The unit traps steam inside, which builds up pressure to create hotter temperatures, and its tight seal locks in heat, moisture, and flavor, as well as vitamins and minerals for exceptionally healthy, great-tasting meals like soup, chili, and other one-dish entrees. It also works well for cheesecake and custard, because dessert should never be left off the menu. The unit's push-button controls and easy-to-read digital display eliminate guesswork, while its precision digital thermostat regulates temperatures. Choose from preprogrammed settings for high- or low-pressure cooking, browning, simmering, sauteing, and warming. For safety, the cooker must be fully locked for pressure to build, and it will remain locked until the pressure inside drops to zero. Other highlights include a 99-minute timer with an LED countdown display, cool-touch side handles, and a nonstick cooking pot that cleans up easily by hand or in the dishwasher. A dishwasher-safe trivet also comes included. Housed in brushed stainless steel, the 1000-watt pressure cooker measures 12-1/5 by 12-1/5 by 13-1/5 inches and carries a 90-day warranty limited warranty.
