K23583 - Technique Hard Anodized 5 qt. Digital Pressure Cooker,Stm Bskt
I have always wanted a pressure cooker, jumped at the change on the Technique Hard Anodized 5 qt Pressure Cooker great price. Once I received the Pressure Cooker It was just like Christmas I could not wait to used it. I love to cook, and cook at lot I used the Pressure Cooker every night, however last night I tried to cook a roast and the pressure cooker would not work .....worked liked a dream for a couple of months then just would not come on. I am returing this back to QVC, no I would recommend this product to anyone. Now I am back to square one looking for another Pressure Cooker....upset in Maryland
Best cooker ever
This is the best thing I've ever bought. Works like a dream, no more quessing.
Spewed out steam the entire time
Was quite excited to receive (also bought 2 as gifts) since the price was right and I like the idea of the hard anodized pot. Unfortunately the pressure regulator did not work properly no matter what I tried; spewed steam during the entire cooking cycle. Had to send all 3 back.
I like this cooker, it is a nice size for a smaller family. Mine does hiss though the whole time it is pressurized and I wonder if everyones does. It sounds like an old time stove top model, very unlike my other CE 8 Quart digital. I like the fact that you can use it as a slow cooker too and also as a regular electric cooker. But what I appreciate the most is the hard annodized interior, I dislike the non stick in other digitals. I hope it holds up as well as my other CE Digitals have.
Works great and so easy to use!
I have always used an on the stove pressure cooker, but when I saw this one on clearance and that is has the hard anodized insert, I had to try it. Technique certainly didn't disappoint me. This works wonderfully well. I can set it and go off and do other things, not worrying about staying close by the stove like I do with my on the stove cookers. It has a nice capacity and will easily hold a large roast with veggies, or a pile or ribs or chicken. Versatile too. I can use it as a steamer or a slow cooker too. I am looking forward to enjoying this pressure cooker for years to come :-)
I cooked barbecue spare ribs tonight, They were delicious. I have a large electric stainless steel pressure cooker with a stainless steel pot that I love, but I also needed pressure cooker that was smaller. Then I saw this one on line and noticed that it wasn't that "toxic non stick" so I ordered it, and I'm so glad I did. Its very easy to use and the hard anodized pot is easy to wash. Thanks Technique for having another great product!
Didn't last long
I bought this product and loved it until it quit working about 6 months after I had it. It actually quit while I was cooking dinner in it. I paid full price for it. I don't know if I would pay the clearance price after my experience.
Love my pressure cooker!
I love this pressure cooker!!!! It is so quiet that I thought it wasn't working, but it was. It is not messy like the pressure cookers I have used on the stove top. I didn't have any water to clean up. I love that the timer starts timing the minutes to cook the food when the pressure is where it is supposed to be. So, there is no standing over the stove to turn the burner down or set the timer on the stove. The electricity I will save by using this will be appreciable because it uses so much less energy than the stove eye. And, to top it off, I ordered this cooker on Sunday and the UPS man delivered it on the following Tuesday!!! Two days!! I could not believe it. I am so happy with this product and wish I had bought an electric pressure cooker years ago because I use one nearly every day.
I have recently purchased this. It is so very easy to use. Cooks fast and cleans up easily. My husband also has used this so it is user friendly to those who are kitchen challenged. The cooker cooks food such as our parents made but had to simmer all day to get tender. You will love this. My only regret is that it is now on clearance for half as much as I paid for it.
Love this PC
I have had this pc for 3 years now and have used it constantly. It is easy to put together and take apart and clean. I can use metals utencils and not worry about scraping the finish. I would love a bigger size in the hard anodized someday as I cook for 3 extra people besides my own family and would love to triple the serving size of my recipes at a time.
Great time saver
I purchased this because of the digital controls. I've used a pressure cooker before and have always been afraid of them. This is so easy to use and my daughter who will never use one is wanting one now. Everybody loves whatever I cook in it and it's so fast....Can't live without it now. We cook meals for 7, so it is large enough for us. You can remove the meat and put something else in it in no time because of the quick release. It's not hard to clean up either.
Just What I Was Looking For!
I finally tried my new Technique 5 qt. digital pressure cooker this evening. I ordered this pressure cooker before it was even on the air. I did a few test runs when I received this unit a few days ago - a must to test out and get the feel of any new appliance. I did have a few bumps in the road but that was my fault.
I can't say that I was at all disappointed in the least. The only thing I didn't like is the lid - hence the 4 stars. It is very hard to get on and off. Maybe it is because of the silicone seal which might make the lid not slide back and forth easily. My hubby also found a few of the screws for the handles not screwed in all the way. Not a big deal. Next time I use this unit I will rinse the silicone seal in warm water first. That might help a bit. This certainly wouldn't give me incentive to send the unit back though.
I made pot roast tonight and it was just yummy!!!! The recipe came from Bob Warden's "Slow Food Fast" cook book (a must have).
I have a large 8qt. unit but felt that this 5 qt would be great for smaller meals.
I love the extra glass lid to keep foods warm and the steamer and rack.
Clean up is simple and easy.
The instructions are pretty simple to follow but if you need further help the people at the service center for the company are really nice and accommodating to answer any further questions you might have.
I don't think anyone would be disappointed in the least.
I think we will all enjoy this unit for some time to come.
