K31101 - Gordon Ramsay 6 qt. Nonstick Low Pressure Stovetop Cooker
won't build up steam
Like so many others, mine will not build up any steam at all. Makes me wonder if this has anything to do with the large price reduction. I guess for some people they were lucky enough to get one that works like it is supposed to. The gasket doesn't seem to be thick enough to make a seal. I have 2 pressure cookers so I know how the lid should fit.
Works great. I have made galic mashed potatos and home made chicken soup. Great results from both. Great price! Before I bought this I did a little research. I originally was going to buy the Anna Boiardi's low pressure cooker. After researching I found out that Gordon's, Bioardis, and Cook Essentials are all made by Flavor-Pro. So unless you want a specific design or color buy Gordon's. You wil save money and you'll be happy with the results.
no pressure pressure cooker
I would recommend this to all my friends. Used only 1 time and made the best beef stew ever in 15 min. of cooking.
Wonderful stovetop cooker
I haven't found there to be any problem with my low pressure cooker, I enjoy using it.
As with any pressure cooker, the seal needs to be seated in the lid correctly. That being said, mine seals perfectly as soon as I turn the heat on and it begins to build pressure...........if I need to stir or add additioinal ingredients, the pressure releases easily and then builds pressure again as soon as I lock the lid.
I know that I will continue to use this and enjoy the results.........the food comes out wonderfully flavorful and tender.
Used my cooker 3 times following instructions....even hand washed and dried. Handle steam release lever broke in pieces after 3rd use. Past 30 day return time.
Nice Pot but doesn't save time
This is a nice pot and I use it frequently but I realized right away that it wasn't a true pressure cooker. It takes pretty much the same amount of time to cook in this pot as it does in my regular lidded pot, it may shave a little time but not a noticeable amount.
I do like the lid and the way it seals so its not a total loss,but it's not a real pressure cooker. I don't believe Gordon if he says this was used in a speedy cooking contest! LOL
Love Love Love
This makes my cooking so easy. I can come home from work and still be able to put a good hot meal on the table in no time. Clean up is so easy. I Love Love Love my pressure cooker
Not what I need
I expected it to be faster than regular cook pots. It wasn't Food tasted good but took as long as regular cookware. I'm sending it back and going to purchase a regular pressure cooker. I love cooks essentials and plan to buy one of their pressure cookers.
BEST PURCHASE!!!! LOVE THIS!!!!
You will not be sorry! We use this almost everyday! With life being so busy, I wasn't able to cook certain things such as stew, pork roasts, etc. without a lot of time (which I rarely have). Now, I am able to cook these things last minute. I made beef stew in just a couple hours- prep time included! Pork tenderloin roasts come out unbelievably tender! Everything comes out so tender and delicious! This Pot has changed our lives! We LOVE it!!!
You need to get seal wet by running water on it, In other words get seal wet before sealing it!
Wonderful cooker!! I use it almost every day! Best purchase ever!!!!
This cooker is not any good.Would like my money back.
