Chris Freytag 4 quart Pressure Cooker
You will not go wrong with this cooker!
I had been looking at pressure cookers and because of the great reviews and price, I ordered this particular one. After it arrived it sat on my counter for a week. There are very few recipes in the booklet. I started out cooking frozen chicken breasts that came out perfect as well as pinto beans. Last night I made Bob Warden's mac and cheese recipeand that turned out perfect as well. This cooker is so easy to use and clean. So happy with this purchase!
I love this pressure cooker! I'm a first time user and this pressure cooker takes a lot of pressure off! My husband and I work 12 hour and 10 1/2 hour days plus drive 17 and 26 miles each way so we have LONG days away from home. Now we can have a meal with meat that usually takes too long to cook the conventional way after work. The only reason I give it four stars is that I think it could have came with more recipes in the book, there were only two. There are, however, many recipes available online plus I know that QVC has a few cookbooks that I'm looking into.
I HAD EXCELLENT RESULTS
this is a very good cooker,,i find i use much more than i thought i would,,and it performs very well,,,,everyone should have one
newbie to pressure cooking AWESOME
This pressure cooker is super easy too use. I've never used on before so I just wish the instructions were more clear on how much water to use I saw one or two mentions of using one cup. But being a newbie im not so sure if that seems correct I made bbq wings in it and the bbq sauce was very thin after cooking. I don't know if this is suppose to be this way. The mac n cheese was super awesome and the the corn bread recipe also that was in the instruction manuel. This machine is Great!! Just Buy It if you are looking.
I bought this one because the one I ordered originally was out of stock, It is quite large in size which i like, I made chicken soup the 1st day i got it and the chicken was frozen solid, only took 45 mins to cook... AWESOME! It was pretty easy to use, the one thing i dont like about it is the lid... I find the partial hinge thing is a bit clunky and hard to use, but other than that, i really do like it. Very powerful...
Read the manual and you can't go wrong. I like cooking again and I'm sure my husband is glad I picked this up.
I LOVE THIS ONE SO MUCH, I GOT IT FOR ONE OF MY DAUGHTER !! I WANTED A COOK ESSENTIAL BRAND BUT AFTER HAVING TWO OF EXACTLY THE SAME ONES, THE PRESSURE VALVE BROKE AS IT'S PLASTIC AND STEAM AND PLASTIC DO NOT MIX AFTER A TIME!!! THIS ONE IS ALL METAL.... PERFECT SIZE FOR TWO PEOPLE WITH SOME LEFTOVERS .... JUST HOPE IT CONTINUES MAKING WONDERFUL MEALS FOR ME... YES, GET BOB WARDENS COOKBOOK FOR PRESSURE COOKERS AND MEREDITH (the bluejean chef) HAS A BOOK ...
A VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE WITH THIS ONE IS THAT THE GUIDE THAT COMES WITH THIS ALSO HAS TROUBLESHOOTING INFO!! I DO HAVE TO MAKE LITTLE ADJUSTMENTS WITH THE PRESSURE VALVE TO STOP STEAM FROM RELEASING.. I'VE USED ELECTRIC PRESSURE COOKERS FOR 4 YRS NOW SO I AM USE TO THIS..
WONDERFUL PRODUCT AT A WONDERFUL CLEARANCE PRICE...
My new best friend
Love this not sure why the other review was so negative. Used it the first day I had it and fell in love immediately. Made the pressure cooker lasagne first off---amazing time for cooking and yummy!! Have used it 3-4 times a week since I got it. I have even adapted some of my favorite recipes for it and found it so easy to use, clean and enjoy. I am getting my daughter one who is a busy mom with two toddlers. She is an adventurous cook and I know this will save her time. Also recommending Bob Wardens books I have one and will get others they have great recipes and tips to adapt your own for the cooker
Thats all I can say about this, its a piece of JUNK!!! Not worth the time or the effort to order!
