Anna Boiardi 5.5 qt. Flavor Pro Nonstick Stovetop Cooker
Excellent product User error
This pan performs as promised IF the directions are followed. The lid seals perfectly if the small handle on the right is pushed closed as instructed. Wonderful Go-To pan! This is a great low-pressure cooker. This is the pan I reach for when I come home from work.
LID DOES NOT SEAL
I loved the shape of this low pressure cooker but the lid did not seal and no pressure built up. Water leaked out around the lid onto the counter and it also made a loud noise. it is just a very large pan with a lid.
Best Pressure Cooker
This is my second pot. Easy to clean switch lids and you can use it for anything. It's a blessing b/c you can add ingredients anytime.
My favorite cooking product in my kitchen!
I love this pressure cooker! Growing up with a fear of high pressure cookers that you can't view the food that is cooking kept me from ever using any pressure cooker. When I discovered this low pressure cooker it has been a dream come true. I can now cook in under an hour food that has an all day crockpot cooking flavor! Everything that I cook turns out perfect! The other wonderful thing is the nonstick surface, I can brown and cook with no residue that is hard to remove, everything cleans with ease. The ability to view the food while using the pressure cooker was another attractive factor. If you want to open the lid, even in the middle of cooking, you can very easily by releasing the pressure in seconds. Opening and replacing the lid is easy and no fear of an explosion.
My worst purchased fron QVC so far. My family bought 3 at the QVC outlet in Lancastet 2 wks ago and we are so disappointed because the seal is not tight enough to keep the pressure. It cooks like a regular pot with a lid. Worst thing we can't return it to the outlet.
Nice addition to my Kitchen
This low pressure cooker is very well made and sturdy. I have tried a couple of the recipes that came with it and they came out perfect. Cleanup is a breeze too.
The only thing that stops me from giving it 5 stars is the availability of recipes for it. The manual only has a small page of basic foods, plus 12 recipes cards were included. No additional info on how to use it for everyday use. I want to know how to convert my favorite recipes to use them with this cooker.
NEEDS MUCH IMPROVEMENT, IF I CAN FIND THE BOX THIS IS GOING BACK.
THE SEAL DOES NOT SEAL I HAD WATER ALL OVER THE TOP OF MY STOVE
Buy this cooker, You will not regret it.
Getting ready to order another one. :o)
I was very pleasantly suprised with this pan. I love it. I ordered the red one and have tried 3 of the recipies it came with. They all came out great. So much so that my husband wanted one of his own. We ordered him the cream colored one. We just can't say enough about this product. It would be great if Anna came out with more recipes and more products.
I received this a few weeks ago and tried it today for the first time. I Made the lentil soup from her recipe card. It was awful! The lentils didn't cook in the time shown in the recipe and it tasted awful. I have used high pressure cookers for many years now. This doesn't even come close to low pressure as advertised. I've read the reviews and maybe there is something wrong with mine also. It is a beautiful pot, but so far that's about it. By the way, I had a ham sandwich for dinner. I wish QVC would be more careful with quality control. This isn't the first time they have raved about a product that wasn't any good.
LID IS THE PROBLEM NOT THE SEAL!
I have used pressure cookers and canners for 30 plus years. I have a variety of them. I was hoping that this pressure cooker was really going to save me time cooking. Before ordering this cooker I read all the reviews about the seal not sealing and building up pressure. That did not hinder my purchase because I thought there must be something that the other people were not doing right. Well, much to my surprise I had the same problem. However, where I have used pressure cookers a lot, I started looking at this one and the "Problem is the lid" not the seal. It is a manufacture's defect. The lid does not sit flat against the pan in order for the seal to seal tight and build up pressure. I don't know if all the other people who had the same problem ordered the graphite color as I did. Maybe it was just the one color. Because there are the other people who purchased one of these and had good luck with it and loved it. Sad that this did not work for me.
i love it
the best purchase I used it daily love it love it,
