Used this product about 10 times or so. First few times it worked fairly well. After a few times the settings on the dial came off, so it was a guessing game where to set the dial to pressure cook. After doing that a few times, the pressure cooker would just shut off after reaching pressure. It kept doing that a few times, and then the last time I used it the cooker still shut off right after achieving pressure, so unplugged the cooker and released the pressure. Was surprised when I opened the lid and saw the cup or so of liquid in the bottom of the pan was completely gone and burned to the bottom. Went right in the garbage at that point. Bummer. Seems like no matter what the brand, folks are not having a lot of good luck with their pressure cookers.

I have been using a pressure cooker for 51 years of marriage and have had one explode and burn my stomach! This cooker works great, is faster than a traditional cooker, safer, and SO EASY to use. Only reccomendation I have is to always include a rack and steamer insert.

When I tried Bob Warden's Pot Roast recipe in this cooker- I was hooked. My husband and I could not wait to eat the leftovers! I am still experimenting with the cooker but I am finding it to be easy and fun to use. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because I find lifting the non-stick pot out of the cooker to be a little inconvenient when its hot- but then you don't have to because you can cook your gravy right in the pot instead of transferring it. I just think they should design the non-stick pot with a grip or handle. No matter, this cooker is a keeper.

I remember my mother in law using a pressure cooker and we all had to leave the kitchen when the steam was released just in case it exploded. This digital machine... IS SO SAFE AND FOOLPROOF!! I was nervous using it the first time and after using it once, I will never be without my Nesco pressure cooker ! The instructions are easy to understand and my first cooked meal was delicously tender. IF YOU ARE EVEN CONSIDERING PURCHASING A PRESSURE COOKER BUY THIS NESCO.You can get rid of your slow cooker, steamer and ricer. This does it all.

Just received my pressure cooker and have used it everyday so far, easy to use and handle. Very easy clean up. The dishes I made in this cooker came from Bob Warden's cookbook and came out great. If you don't want to heat up your house and get rid of half of the extra cookware, this pot does it all, from slow cook, pressure cook, brown etc. I plan on using it in our RV and enjoy the weather instead of spending hours preparing meals.
