I purchased the Elite Bistro 8 Qt electric pressure cooker online. I was called by the UPS Store 18 miles from my location that my purchase was at the store and ready for pick up. My shipping information showed that it was supposed to be delivered to my home address which did not happen. Today I decided to try my cooker out. I spent time preparing everything that I was going to cook. The first step was to brown the meat. So I plugged the cooker in and used the Menu option to select the proper setting, then hit Start button. This was all as directed. About 10 seconds later I get an error message saying that the internal Thermo Fuse needs replaced. Called the support number and was told to return the product to the store. Needless to say I will not be purchasing one of these units again. I realize this may have been a fluke, however, I think there may be a Quality Control Problem.

I was always skeptical of pressure cookers, but finally decided to purchase one. This is one awesome product. The flavors are infused into whatever you are cooking. Everything has been so tender it is unbelievable. My husband said this was the best purchase I've made this year!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Familycircus Having fun learning! Good and bad.
I wanted one large enough for family of 6. This one is great and it came in my favorite red! The only thing I would change = the digital screen is a little hard for me to read. The booklet is a little hard to understand at first and I wish it had more recipes. Plus I can't tell what to do with one of the little parts that came with it! It works great - pork tenderloin was done quickly and tasted great. Macaroni and cheese stuck to bottom of pan, won't try that again. Chili was the best.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by lschrader Not what I expected
I bought 2 of these pressure cookers because of the lid that lifted but stayed attached. My mom has arthritis and needed something that had a lid that was easy to use. I decided to buy one for me too.
The lids do not seal. They have to be pushed down and played with to get them to finally seal. After that, it takes about 15 min for them to pressure up.
If you cook soup, the moisture will come out after you release the steam. I am not impressed with this pressure cooker.
Both pressure cookers did the same thing. Not a good product
