CooksEssentials 8 quart Digital Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker
The first time ever using a pressure cooker was 40+ years ago with a stove-top model we received as a wedding gift. I was terrified to use it, finally convinced by my husband to give it a try. We have since worn out two stove-top pressure cookers. It was time to replace the last one, and went with the Cook's Essentials 8 qt. digital electric pressure cooker. Wow! Great choice! We love this pressure cooker for the ease of use and easy clean-up. The directions in the manual are very helpful. I would encourage anyone on the fence about purchasing this to go ahead and take the plunge...you won't be disappointed! Thanks so much for a quality product!
best one yet
this pressure cooker is the best cooking one that i have purchased yet. i have a 6 qt a 5 qt and now this one. each has their own appeal, i use them almost daily. i love that there is so much less clean up in the kitchen. no splatters on the stove and hood and backsplash to clean up. this pressure cooker does everything it says it will and perfectly. i highly recommend it to anyone who is on the fence.
I used this a couple of times and then the non-stick lining of the pot started to flake off when cleaning.
Inner pot coating problem
Not a bad cooker for the price.. Works great and cleans up well. However, the inner pot coating chips off! If you can get past that..you'll like it!
miracles can happen
Hello everyone this is the best product on the market I have used so far. I own a commercial Food Truck on wheels. " Little Bite of Paradise 201-602-9873 Saddle Brook ,NJ " . I do Fairs,Carnivals, Feast, Catering, parties and much more. EVERYTHING is homemade which takes a long time to make, with my lovely pressure cooker, I get everything done in half the time. This is truly a MIRACLE. I can only say 1 thing. GO AND BUY THIS TODAY.Don't wait or hesitate, this is a must have. 20 plus pounds of pork in 30 minutes, BEAUTIFUL pulled pork.
Best thing I ever bought!
I have never used a pressure cooker or knew anything about them so was afraid there might be quite a learning curve. It is easy! I use it a couple of times a week, sometimes twice in a day on the weekend. You can do everything the demo shows and it comes out with fast, tasty and TENDER foods. I have even made hard boiled eggs, omelettes, boiled noodles, french onion soup, and delicious split pea soup in it! Many recipes online and once you get the hang of it, you can make up your own. Planning to take it camping in the RV with us!
Only one flaw
I love this pressure cooker the only reason I gave it 4 stars is the nonstick insert liner got pitted after a couple of uses.I still use it, is great to cook fast meals it is safe and easy to use. Even my 14 year old daughter loves it. I will keep it and hope you can buy a new insert liner for it. Wonderful product just perfect it on the insert linger to stand up to pressure.I will be watching so come on guys make new liners and make sure we can can buy them for our cookers.
Best Purchase Ever!
This pressure cooker is amazing! I am now able to cook a wide array of main and side dishes in mere MINUTES... and the clean up is easy. This appliance allows me to come home from work and have an amazing home-cooked meal on the table within 30 minutes. Everything tastes like it has been slow cooked or baked for hours. AMAZING! I was a little intimidated at first, but once I used it the first time, I realized just how easy it is to operate. Wish I had purchased this long ago.
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
I AM SO EXCITED WITH MY NEW PRESSURE COOKER EVEN THOUGH IT TOOK ME A YEAR TO FINALLY ORDER IT. I WOULD HEARTELY RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE!!!!!!
I received my pressure cooker and first thing I had to try was a pork roast for pulled pork. I love this! kitchen stayed cool and it only took less than half the time than if I had put it in the oven or on top the stove! Have done chicken also and it comes out so moist, even the white meat! Soups are done in no time! JUST LOVE IT!
I do have one concern, it seems the finish is chipping off the pot inside. I only use plastic, silicone or wood utensils. Would like to have the pot replaced but i don't have the original box and the cooker part works fantastic! Will be contacting QVC to see if i can just get the pot replaced.
Anyone that likes to cook and doesn't have time to wait forever for the food to be done, will love this! It's also easy to set, no confusing buttons or settings.
Inner pot finish already coming off
I just used this for the 1st time and was very happy with the result BUT, the inner pot is already flaking off and have email customer service about getting a new inner pot. I see on the manufacture site they do make an 8 QT stainless but I should not have to pay for one.
WOW WHAT A BUY
This is my 5th pressure cooker from Q.V.C. One I purchased as a gift for a younger friend who was just learning to cook. I currently have a 4 quart pressure cooker that I use some times 4 to 5 times a month. The l.e.d. lights are wearing out so I decided to move up in size. My first time using this Goliath pressure cooker I packed it with a 5.5lb chicken two large turkey wings and 3 turkey drum sticks. It cooked soooo quickly I couldn't believe it. Everything was cooked well, and it was delicious. I'm an experienced foodie.For someone else they may need practice before feeling confident to use a pressure cooker. I am thoroughly satisfied with this purchase. I'm single ,and I cook enough for several days. I also cooked two 2.5 lb beef roasts my first time using this fabulous machine. I remember David and his other host saying that when you need the larger capacity you'll have it, and you don't have to fill it up every time you cook.
