K17379 - Cook's Essentials 6.5 Quart Digital Oval Pressure Cooker
Best Pressure Cooker I've Ever Used!
This is the first oval pressure I've owned, and it is so much better than the round ones that always made me feel like I was putting the food down into a narrow deep hole. LOL!
I bought this several months ago, and I've found it to be perfect for both large and small meals. I just cooked corned beef and cabbage and it was so nice to be able to lay the corned beef out flat in the cooker without cutting it to make it fit.
I am really pleased with this oval pressure cooker, and I'm so glad I got it when I did, because now it seems to be no longer available. I think that's a big mistake, because the only other oval Cooks Essentials pressure cooker is the 5 quart size.
Best buy for the kitchen!!!!
Wow, this pressure cooker is so quick and easy, I bought two of them. Cook and freeze dinners to save time and they taste fabulous. Hope you bring this back, my sister wants to order one. Great, great buy.
I used this three times and it just stopped working. There must be something wrong with the electronics of my unit. I ordered another brand....
GREATEST PRODUCT SINCE THE OVEN.....
This is the best product for moms and all cooks since the oven! or pots and pans or ..there is no other like it,,,,,along with Bob Wardens cookbook I have been the greatest cook ever per friends and family...it literally takes but a few minutes to put together healthy, and one friend even said "gourmet" type meals, Everybody needs one, really, you wont believe how easy it is. But make sure you get this one for the browning feature helps more than one realizes...and there are others out there where you cannot adjust the timing feature,,,that is also very important for this one does...... One complaint, it is always unavailable and have many friends wanting one, and I am wanting MORE for gifts.. Hurry and get more......it is a problem.
A Must Buy
I am extremely pleased with this pressure cooker. My first meal turned out excellent! Now you can prepare healthy meals in a matter of minutes. The 6.5 quart is decent.
The unit does what you expect, what more can you ask for. Highly recommend.
This unit is great. Cooked a whole chicken from rock hard frozen to falling off the bone in 35 minutes. The 6.5 qt. capacity is perfect. When you pressure cook the larger the size the better. The only improvement I would suggest is an 8 or 10 qt. model. The unit is virtually silent. Cleans up in less that 2 minutes.
Love It !
So far, so good. Have had this unit for a week and a half, have used it 4 times with no problems at all. I had another 6 qt. CE cooker about 3 years ago that only worked 4 times, then died. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one, hoping they got the problem fixed this time around.
REAL TIME SAVER
I purchased this unit for my daughter for Christmas. She has 7 children and cooks all the time. She loves it and has kept it cooking since she got it. I asked again today and she says it has been a life saver . She had no problems with this unit. Everyone is pleased with how it has performed, and the cook book is a real plus as well. Just keep the good products coming!
I received my pressure cooker last week, was kinda scared after reading some of the negative reviews but I'm so glads that I went ahead and purchased it for myself. I cooked a pot roast and it turned out wonderful, my kids are picky eaters but they really enjoyed the roast and after there was no more roast, we made a hearty soup being that we were expecting a winter storm and they loved the vegetable soup! Sorry to hear that some are having problems for some reason or another but it's really a great product.
Not So Electric !!
Was excited to receive this. I went out and bought a roast and couldn't wait to have it cooked in half the time VS baking in the oven. However, half way through the cooking time the screen went blank and the cooker came to a stop. It never did come back on even when I tried different outlets. The machine was DEAD. It is on it's way back to QVC Hopefully the next one will work fine.
This is the second unit that failed. I ordered the first when it was TSV, it heated up and then just shut off. I liked the size of it so I ordered another one....THE SAME THING HAPPENED, heated up and just shut off.
I got this cooker for Christmas. The first one I got whistled. I called the manufacturer and they said it was not normal and I should remove the gasket and put it back in. It still whistled. I returned it to QVC and had my new one in less than a week! I have used it for the last 4 days. I LOVE it. As far as some of the reviews talking about taking time to come up to pressure.....I preheat my oven, my skillets on the stove are not immediately hot, so I understand this is just the way it works. However, if you use the cooker to brown something before using it under pressure it seems to come up to pressure significantly faster. Makes sense, it's already hot. I also think the cookbook for pressure cookers are a must.
