Anna Boiardi 5.5 qt. Flavor Pro Nonstick Stovetop Cooker
my new favorite cooking pot
Man,do I ever love this pot! Wish I would have had this years ago when I was cooking big batches of food for my family. The big batches are mostly gone, but the pot is still great for the smaller recipes,too. I fix everything from soup to stews to casseroles and I don't have to hover over them to be sure they don't burn. A lot of my recipes start out with bacon, onions, garlic and all colors of bell peppers ( I'm nuts over that combination) The pot is so easy to clean that I want to use it for everything. Small batches large batches, anything I'd like to simmer for a while to intensify the flavor of. Everything cooks so beautifully in it and joy of joys , I don't have to stand over it to keep it from sticking or burning .Sound like I love this pot? Yessem, I do, I do I do!. .
DO NOT PURCHASE THIS COOKER!!!!!
I do not understand why QVC continues to promote this product! Sadly, this pan simply does not work. The lid does not fit tightly, steam escapes from sides, and so it never builds up pressure. I tried adjusting the gasket, but it did not make any difference. The only way I could get a tight seal was by pressing down on the lid as the food cooked. But unless you are willing to stand there and do this the entire time you are cooking, this pan will never work as a low pressure cooker.
Food did not cook in any less time, there was never any pressure to 'release'. POOR QUALITY!
This works beautifully if you turn it very low. It does not need much heat. I almost sent it back but liked the idea so much I kept experimenting. It is great and the flavor is incredible!
Asset to my kitchen‼️
I love that I can season, throw my meat in, and seal the lid....this pressure cooker does the rest! My meat is falling off the bones by the time it's ready. Added bonus, it does NOT take hours!!!! I'm in love‼️
I bought this cooker on the 5th march. I use it for the first time on the 26th march. I close the lid and lock it. I noticed steam is coming from the valve and around the lid where no steam should be coming through. No pressure. I would like to return it but I threw out the box. I will call QVC and see if they can replace it. This one may be defect.( I hope)
Working moms best friend
Purchased this item hoping it was as good as the show indicated. It is better, GREAT tasting food. WARNING - turn your flame down don't cook on high heat - I made that mistake the first time. Clean up is a snap!
My O My
I just made the most tender pork chops n potatoes EVER. I have always been hesitant to use a pressure cooker. Those days are OVER!
Not so great
Sorry to say I'm returning this low pressure cooker. Description says it's safe for ceramic cooktops--NOT SO. It put major scratches on my ceramic/glass cooktop and when cleaning the pan, it put dark marks on my Silestone sink. It is quite large and awkward to handle when full of food. On a better note, the nonstick interior is easy to clean. It would have been extremely helpful if there were instructions for converting recipes that included basic cooking times when going from high pressure cooking to low pressure.
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.
