Ecohouzng 13.82-in White Multi Function Pressure Cooker is rated
Rated 3 out of
Too many bells and whistles
Got this for Christmas and am returning after two uses. The instruction manual is too brief. I wanted it for the pressure cooking function. There are many preset cooking functions that are really unnecessary. I had hoped that the electric unit would offer some advantage over my manual unit, and really there is not. I would have no trouble using it as a slow cooker. Be aware that the cooker is very large and you might want to leave it on your counter as it can be used often. I was disappointed that on one try that the pop up valve did not rise and allow the cooker to come up to pressure, so I cannot feel confident to use the timer to set the cooking for a future time. This would have been a nice feature to count on. At least in not coming to pressure there would be no safety concerns....only an uncooked meal. Not sure why it did not come up to pressure as the pop up valve was not jammed, and was free moving. If you would appreciate the multi function of slow cooker and pressure cooker this might be for you. I would not give up my manual pressure cooker for this though.....so back it goes. Be prepared to spend a lot of time figuring out the controls, as the instructions available are lacking.
The cooker is beautiful and may be a good fit for you especially if you are opposed to trying a manual pressure cooker as some are. Just be prepared for a learning curve on the pressure cooker function.
