K21899 - Technique 5 Quart Stainless Steel Programmable Pressure Cooker
Won't build pressure
If I had written a review on this product right after I got it I would be raving about it. When it worked it was wonderful. I just didn't work very long. I used it maybe 5 times and then I couldn't get it to hold pressure.
I have to say that I will try another pressure cooker. I loved it and was so upset that it stopped working. I also have to say how pleased I am with the response from QVC. I called QVC and they sent me a label to ship it back and credited me for the cost. You couldn't ask for more.
I am disappointed with the pot, but I still love QVC.
IT works great...Just follow the instructions!
I was so pleased to get this item, I have not had any problems with it at all. You need to be careful to make sure the valve is resting and pointing to the word pressure if it is lifted it won't work and you will burn you food, it happened to me twice. The only recommendation, it they make a bigger one like an 8 quart, but for a family of 4 it works great for me. I am happy with the quality and honestly the only thing I can say is really make sure you read the instructions carefully to get the hang of it. It is easy to put the lid on, no issues with it not locking or with any part of it. Works just like it should.
I have never written a review before, But this item had me so aggravated I just Had to write this! Don't get me Wrong Pressure Cookers Are Amazing!! Food Comes out Phenomenal, Tender, Juicy, ETC... But This machine... JUNK! Gasket will not stay in lid, wouldn't come to pressure, Can't get the lid on. used 7 times and RUINED 4 meals Because of the mentioned issues. When I did get the lid to attach and the cooker to get to come to pressure I did Make AMAZING Stuufed Peppers and Barbecue Pork to die for!! Another thing they FAIL to Tell you Yes It cooks food in 20 min.. BUT It Takes another 20 or more to come to temp before it starts to cook. Go Figure! I will purchase another But I assure you It will be A Tottally Different model.
Extremely Satisfied! This is the first pressure cooker I have purchased. Based on previous reviews I was unsure of the purchase. I don't have any regrets purchasing this product. Both my husband and I look forward to cooking our meals. We have fun deciding what we will cook for lunch or supper. The entire family has enjoyed the food we have prepared. The food cooks in less time than if you were to cook it in an oven or stove top.
Best Of The Best ...
This pressure cooker is money saving and time saving.
I spend $ 5.00 when I made pulled pork sandwich using pork shoulder for 12 peoples.
The delay timer is the perfect touch.
Was excited to get this as a replacement for a previous Cook's Essentials pressure cooker which I loved and wore out!!! This cooker reaps good results if you can close and lock it! There is a plastic ring and rubber gasket which are a difficult fit on the underside of the lid. Have transferred food content to other pots due to difficulty closing the lid on this pressure cooker!
I have only used traditional stove top pressure cookers and always was afraid they were going to explode! LOL I wasn't even sure this thing was cooking. It barely makes a sound! It did not turn on right away, and I had to give it a tap on the side before it worked the first time. (Hope this isn't going to be a problem.) My spaghetti sauce was cooked in 8 minutes and very good. Super easy clean up.
This was terrible. The meat came out like rubber after using the slow cooker setting. Returned.
love love love
I love this cooker it was so easy to use. It would be nice to include cooking times for people how haven't used one before. I had so that was not a problem. I have used it on a lot of different foods with great results every time.
NEED COOKING DIRECTIONS
I was so excited to receive this product, however, not having any recipes or cooking guidelines I have found it frustrating to use. I have an old pressure cooker that I have had to refer back to that manual to find out how long to cook things. Are you supposed to guess how long to cook a roast or ribs? It would be so helpful to have that information included with this product. Technique products are so great that I can't believe that they didn't include such an obvious needed item for their customers. You shouldn't have to order additional cook books to cook items in this pressure cooker.
Can't wait to try mine!!!
I just received my Technique Pressure Cooker and I can't wait to try it. My sister has one and swears by it.
I have to say that after reading some of the reviews which said they received no instructions or manuals I was a little nerveous. I received mine with a detailed instruction manual that described everything necessary to properly use the pressure cooker even though no recipes were included!!!
Wish me luck!!!
I received this pressure cooker a couple of weeks ago and so far I love it!. It it easy to operate and I love how quite it is as I had one of those pressure cookers that you used on top of the stove that made so much noise and you had to drain over the sink, so this is so much of an improvement to say the least. I also ordered and received Quick & Easy Pressure Cooking cookbook that you sell by Bob Warden. Lots of recipes and full cooking chart which will be a great help on knowing how long to cook meats and vegetables.
