The Cuisinart CPC-600 6-Quart, 1000-Watt Electric Pressure CookerCuisinart updates a classic! Our brushed stainless pressure cooker is safe, easy to use, cooks up to 70% faster than conventional methods and cooks healthier, too. Steam trapped in the pot builds up pressure that creates hotter temperatures, and the pot is so tightly sealed that vitamins and minerals can't boil away. Foods stay moist and flavors stay true. Features variable pressure and temperature settings, plus Browning, Simmering and Sauté functions for perfect roasts, stews, vegetables, cheesecake or custard. The Cuisinart Pressure Cooker is absolutely safe, with a lid that has to be locked in place before pressure builds, and stays locked until pressure is released. Cook faster, eat healthier, with Cuisinart!

Cut your time drastically6/24/2014
This is my first pressure cooker. It's been great!
Excellent item, but still the longevity has yet to be proven
Failed after 2nd use6/21/2013
Won't pressurize after 2 uses. Cleaned gasket, pressure switch, etc....worked great for the first 2 times, but useless now
Onlyl used it once so far12/17/2012
Well, it's a little intimidating, and can be very messy if you're not familiar.... But I have faith that it's all a matter of practice.
since it is a gift, havent used it yet, but cuisinart is a good brand, and i've had good luck with their products
The next generation pressure cooker12/6/2012
Having used traditional pressure cookers all my life I was apprehensive in getting an electronically controlled pressure cooker. Was it pleasantly surprised. This is superb. It is far less noisy, far more automated and far more beautiful on the kitchen counter than anything comparable. I like the two pressure settings, the timer setting and the auto switch to keep warm once the set time has elapsed. Highly recommend.
Quick and painless9/11/2012
I bought this for cooking rice, since my old $20 rice cooker never really did a good job. This is so much more convenient, not to mention quicker. It also boils potatoes in a fraction of the time it takes cooking them on the stove. Cleanup is a snap, too, since nothing seems to stick to the removable pot (another problem I had with my old rice cooker). I can't wait to start experimenting with some of the recipes it comes with.
The Cuisinart pressure cooker is fabulous, who can complain about delicious beef short ribs in 50 minutes as opposed to 3 hours. It's safe and easy, plus you can brown in the same removable inner pot then just change the setting to pressure cook. I love it!
The cooker works great. It doesn't send out steam like traditional ones. The one I get has a lot of scratches on the collar.
My wife loves it6/24/2012
I got it for my wife and was sure it'll get rejected like the last kitchen appliance (a burner) I got for her. The initial reaction was - so you wasted some more money on tech stuff! Then together we made one recipe in it that turned out to be good, but still wasn't convincing enough. A few days later, one more, and now, she uses it on a daily basis - cooking rice, soup, and whatever she can think of. Have owned only for a month now, but one of the best things we've bought since our Blendtec mixer 2 years back.. First of all - it is clean. It doesn't let steam escape like in the normal pressure cookers so that you need less water and the cooking time is faster (not to mention of the food smell all over the house because of the released steam by the traditional cookers). Cleaning is a breeze. So, in short, everyone is happy. The food tastes much better as it is cooked under pressure which makes all the spices, flavors etc.. get absorbed and nutrients don't escape. Thinking of buying one more.
The deal is very good. I saw the same product in my friend's room and was amazed by the product. I will definitely prefer this for anyone who wanted to buy a electric rice cooker. This is the good deal and I will definitely go for this product in very early time.
I had never used a pressure cooker before because I had heard stories of them "blowing up" but this electric cooker is completely safe. It's appearance is high tech but it is super easy to use. You just set the temperature and time controls and let it do the work!
i love this ...i can cook rice or soup every time i want to eat ...so easy
This is a wonderful product! I had never used a pressure cooker before because I had heard stories of them "blowing up" but this electric cooker is completely safe. It's appearance is high tech but it is super easy to use. You just set the temperature and time controls and let it do the work! The nonstick surface makes cleanup a breeze. Another reviewer gave this product two stars because the instruction and recipe booklet wasn't what he expected. You can find cooking time/liquid amount charts on a number of web sites as well as in pressure cooking recipe books.
great product, very quick and quiet when cooking. I was using a traditional pressure cooker, which startled my daughter when releasing steam. not any more with this one, I am very happy.
This is just what I was looking for5/28/2012
I haven't used it yet but I have many plans for it. I'm so tired of listening to the jiggle of the weight to tell me if I am at the right pressure, this one I can set and forget, I can't wait to use it.
Performance Outstanding & Made Cooking Enjoyable5/25/2012
I would recommend this Cuisinart CPC-600 6-Quart, 1000-Watt Electric Pressure Cooker to anyone interesting in buying a Pressure Cooker. This unit removes the need to watch a pressure cooker over a stove.

Great product, made soup for the first time, very tasty. Save a lot time.
it saves time, with timer, no sound (comparing with regular one), and safe.
I've been using it for a month and it turned out to be great! Easy and to use and clean, plus it saves me so much of time! Love it!!
What was I thinking?!3/27/2012
I'm not sure why I haven't owned one of these things sooner. I've had this cooker for 4 days, and have made dinner in it 3 times. Makes cooking and cleanup a snap, from browning to cooking...
Best pressure cooker ever3/26/2012
I was a little hesitant at first since I've never used an electric pressure cooker. But this machine is very solid, easy to use, and probably more efficient than traditional pressure cookers. Meals that normally take 3 hours can be done in 25 minutes. This is truly an amazing machine
I love my new pressure cooker.
LOVE THIS PRESSURE COOKER!2/12/2012
I had a pork loin, potatoes, carrots and gravy cooked in 15 minutes. Not to mention the flavor and moistness was to die for. This is the best purchase I have made in a long time. No more fast food drive thru when you have this appliance it is just as fast as the drive thru and much more healthy.
