I love this little machine. I have never used a pressure cooker before but recent events in my life have left me very little cooking time. I cooked my first meal in it using the cookbook included. Pork chops and potatoes....it was ridiculously easy and fast. Releasing the pressure after the cook time was done was a little scary, and sent my cat sailing down my basement stairs, but other than that, I can't complain. The removable cookpot is great for easy clean up.
Large capacity, first time I used it I browned and cooked a 4 lb Pot Roast in half the time. Rice cooker also worked great, restaurant quality rice. Pressure cooked vegetables don't lose their color. Sturdy design, easy to use.
This has become my go-to kitchen appliance. It makes perfect rice in less than 10 minutes. Browns food in the pot so you can deglaze and then add additional ingredients. (Yeah! Only one pot to wash.) The slow-cooker and pressure-cooker functions are excellent. I had never used a pressure cooker before and was a little nervous, but my anxieties were unnecessary. The accompanying cookbook and instruction booklet are excellent. I love this thing!

This is an appliance every kitchen should have. Dinner is always ready when I get home. Love the easy clean up. Rice cooker has cut cooking time of whole grain brown rice to 12 minutes. Excellent. Will recommend to anyone.
Since receiving this multicooker, I have made numerous items in it and all turned out really well. I cooked a whole chicken to make soup, the meat was tender and juicy. It is also really fast with the pressure cooking function. I didn't think pressure cooker soup could have that great taste of simmered all day soup, but it is great! Now I have wonderful homemade chicken soup in the freezer. I've made the rice pudding recipe (cookbook included) twice - first time in my life I've made really good rice pudding and it's all done in about 30 mins. I've cooked dried beans super quick.
Clean up is relatively quick and easy. The nonstick inner pan really is nonstick. The instruction book is easy to understand. I really think this is a worthwhile purchase as I am now planning to donate my rice cooker and crockpot to a charity and free up some storage space.

I was very excited to get this cooker. I used it to to make rice, potatoes and then as a slow cooker for a pot roast. As a pressure cooker it did a pretty good job, but the seal did not last. After making the first pot roast I could not get the beef smell out of the lid. I tried for weeks, but EVERYTHING I cooked after that had a beef taste to it. I tried making cider for last Thanksgiving and even THAT tasted like beef - YUCK!
I will not get another 3 in 1 cooking appliance. I would rather get a separate rice, cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker.
I bought this item, and it worked rather well. As described, it makes everything from rice to pot roast and functions as a rice cooker, a slow cooker, and a pressure cooker. I used it four or five times a month until just after the warranty expired. A minor part failed and was replaced, and then the entire unit died suddenly in the middle of a cycle, ruining our dinner. Repair costs about as much with shipping as a new unit, so I am rather disappointed.
This is such an awesome tool to have in the kitchen. My Crock Pot always burned everything, leaving my dinners dry and charred. Not the case with this...you can set the timer to start cooking later, meaning you come home to a perfectly cooked meal. The pressure cooker works very well also, as does the rice cooker. However, you will need to cook brown rice about twice as long. I love this cooker!
Rice cooker, pressure cooker, and slow cooker all in one! And they all work just as I'd expect. Be very careful releasing the steam valve. I use the end of a wooden spoon that has a hanging loop to hook around the tab and pull from a safe distance. Don't put under a cabinet, there will be a LOT of steam. Cleanup of the non-stick inner bowl is very simple, but take care not to scratch it. Stick to wooden and plastic utensils and never put it in the dishwasher.
what's the main benefit between this and the fagor electric pressure cooker with 2 settings?georgeelliot on Mar 24, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This item is a bit more versatile since it's a pressure cooker, slow cooker and rice cooker in one. The other cooker doesn't have all these cooking capabilities in one unit.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 27, 2012
