Finally, it also helps to keep your kitchen much cooler than if you were to use the stove which is great for those hot summer days when you would rather not heat the house while making dinner.
- Pressure Cooker Pros
This model has this astonishing volume of 10 quarts, that makes it a really great choice if you are looking for a large volume, because, as mentioned earlier, very few models are available in the market that provide you with a volume this high.

Using this cooker was pretty easy. It doesn’t have an On Button, so you just have to plug it in and its ready to go. Once you’ve done that, you can add your favorite food, lock the lid and use one of the push buttons to set the time.
- Best Pressure Cooker
Simple one-touch operation let you put it to work without having to do calculations or guess parameters.

Has received good reviews overall for its innovative cooking design. The one touch cooking settings, and easy canning and cooking of one pot recipes is a great hit among users.
- Copper Square Pans
Another great feature is the safety lock lid. This lid incorporates a manual steam release system for safety purposes. On the lid is a sturdy handle you can use to either open or close the pressure cooker. A slow cooker and auto keep warm feature are great for those delicate meals.
- Cook Taste Eat
It is a faster cooker that delivers 10 times faster cooking results.
- Salient Themes
Cleanup is quite easy as the design is dishwasher safe. Simply remove the inner pot and put it in the dishwasher for a quicker and safer washing.

My personal favorite feature is how much time you can save on your food prep. Because you can put all the ingredients in a single pot, the Power Cooker XL helps you to save a great deal of time on prepping.

It has been an amazing experience cooking with it; no wonder it is ever found on my kitchen table rather than on the shelves.

What experts didn't like

The non-stick pot cleaned up relatively well in our testing, but many users have reported that the non-stick coating started peeling off after only a few uses.

One of the biggest complaints was the poor customer service that the company offered. Their representatives couldn't answer questions and customers experienced long hold times.
- Pressure Cooker Pros
It started burning the food after I used it fewer than 6 times.

I would’ve hoped that it reached a higher because it did take longer to cook my roast than comparable pressure cookers did in the past.
- Best Pressure Cooker
The problem with canning (aside from people teasing you about turning into an old lady) is that everything has to be kept completely sterile, or your preserves will go bad and all your effort will be wasted.

Some users also had negative thoughts about the aluminum interior pot, saying that they would prefer a stainless steel finish.

Other negative reviews involve the laborious cleaning time taken than what the customers had expected. And many customers have expressed their displeasure over the Teflon coating.
- Copper Square Pans
Some users do not like the Teflon coated inner pot.
- Cook Taste Eat
Hard to clean.
- ReviewingPlus
The inside of the pot is made with a very soft layer of a Teflon material while the lid also is made up of aluminum. Both the Teflon and aluminum can bring up health problems to us if they get in frequent contact with the meals prepared inside this cooker.

An Overview On Electric Pressure Cookers For Families

Unless you’ve been hibernating for the past few years, you’ve likely heard of electric pressure cookers. It seems every year, a new crop of friends tries one of these appliances out and has to shout to the world how great it is.

What’s all the hype about? The biggest draw to electric pressure cookers is that it can replace numerous kitchen appliances, including your slow cooker and rice cooker. You can also use pressure cookers to make yogurt, cheesecake, hardboiled eggs and oatmeal. Of course, most pressure cooker owners will tell you all about the soups, beans and delicious meats they make in their electric pressure cookers.

“I use my Instant Pot to sauté and brown proteins and veggies before switching over to pressure cook the stew they will become, as well as to cook hard boil eggs, rice, homemade yogurt, slow-cooked soups, beans, overnight oats and much, much more,” says Julie Chernoff, dining editor of “Better,” a lifestyle website and print magazine. “It can be a godsend for a smaller kitchen since you only need the one appliance.”

But before you invest in an electric pressure cooker, it’s important to know that there’s a steep learning curve with the appliance. If you’ve been making meals using your slow cooker for a while, you’ll love the slow cooker feature included with many pressure cookers. But there’s so much more you can do that you’ll need to research the options before you choose one.

Although you’ll primarily hear the name “Instant Pot” when it comes to modern pressure cookers, there are plenty of other competitors on the market, many from known brands. The Instant Pot has its own unique setup, so you may find another brand is easier to use, particularly if you’re a novice.

The Electric Pressure Cooker For Families Buying Guide

  • Electric pressure cookers are usually offered in two major sizes: 6 and 8 quarts. The 6-quart version should be enough to cook a meal for a family of six, but if you cook for larger groups, a 10-quart pressure cooker can handle up to 10 servings.
  • If you’re worried about safety, it’s important to note that today’s pressure cookers aren’t the same as the appliances your grandparents used for canning.

“There are safety features involved with the pressure-cooking function, including that it won’t start until the lid is safely locked in place, so you can rest easy,” Chernoff says. “Be careful not to fill the pot too full, especially if you are cooking items that expand while cooking, like legumes and grains.”

  • If you’re looking for instructions, you’ll probably have to go online. Even if you get a manual with your pressure cooker, the best recipes and tips can be found in the many pressure cooker communities that have emerged on Facebook.
  • One major difference from one pressure cooker to the next is the seal. The way your appliance seals while cooking, as well as how the steam is released when your meal is ready, can vary from one cooker to another. Some pressure cookers even have a manual release button to make it easy to manually release steam when it’s time.
  • As fun as it is to make delicious meals, someone has to clean everything up after dinner. Many modern pressure cookers have nonstick surfaces to make cleanup easy. Also look for an electric pressure cooker that has accessories that are dishwasher safe.
  • Speaking of accessories, those can vary from one pressure cooker to another. A ladle and rice paddle can come in handy, as can cooking mitts and an extra silicone sealing ring in case yours wears out. But as you dive further into different recipes, you’ll probably find yourself longing for a stainless-steel steaming basket that will expand the foods you can make.
