Multi Function Pressure Cooker Reviewed

Sometimes You Want To Cook Fast

I asked Santa Claus to bring me a multi-function pressure cooker for Christmas this year. I sure hope that my name is on his "good list" and that he will consider leaving one under my tree. 

I can remember my grandmother and mother used a pressure cooker often when I was a child. It isn't a tool that I have ever owned but now I think I want one. 

Back when the girls were small and during the time that I worked outside of the home, I had a tendency to use a slow-cooker for many of our meals. It was nice to put it all in the pot and let it cook all day so that we could eat shortly after I got home. I still use the slow-cooker from time to time. 

Now that I am home all of the time, I think that having a pressure cooker would be nice. I will be able to cook healthy meals in much less time. Unlike the versions that my mother and grandmother owned, the new models offer several functions to use depending on what you are cooking. 

I love the versatility of the features in the one pictured above. There are 25 functions available with 12 of them being automatic features. I can set the timer for cooking for as little as 5 minutes or as long as 12 hours which makes it a fast cooker and a slow cooker in one pot. I also love that one of the automatic settings is a reheat. So, when I have leftovers that need to be warmed up, I will no longer have to heat up the oven to get dinner ready. That will save energy and time.

This multi function pressure cooker also comes with its own measuring cup, spatula, steam tray, trivet and recipe book.  Those should come in handy, I think.

I'm really hoping that Santa remembers that I asked him for one of these this year. I told him that of all of the things that I have mentioned as gift ideas, this pressure cooker is the one that I most want. Of course, I am never disappointed with anything that he leaves me under the tree. That jolly old elf always delights me with his choices every year.

How about you? What have you asked Santa for this year?

  1. My grandmother had a pressure cooker too, but I have never owned one myself. Her pressure cooker was a stove top version, but I think I would much prefer the current day electric version. I have never considered one before today, but I have to admit, being able to prepare a good meal quickly definitely appeals. I hope you get your pressure cooker for Christmas and that you have a very, merry Christmas!

  2. I had a top-of-the-stove pressure cooker for years and used it quite a lot. Stew was a favorite dish, I remember. It came in really handy when I was cooking for a family of five. I don't really need one today with the family grown and living far away, so have passed mine on. Hope you get your 'Santa wish' Bev, and Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  3. I have considered buying one but just haven't yet. Years ago I had the old-fashioned, stove top pressure cooker and loved it. I hope Santa is good to you and brings you one for Christmas.

  4. Living at high altitude presents many cooking and baking challenges. A pressure cooker would solve a number of those challenges (since water boils at a different temp at my elevation and causes many foods to take much longer to cook). Maybe Santa will bring both of us this really nice pressure cooker. Thanks for your review and happy holidays!
