Rated 5 out of 5Â by Vanderlaanmommy4 This has replaced my crockpot
I am really enjoying this. I've used this many times for meals that normally would take 4-6 hours in crock-'pot - its on the table in 45 minutes. I believe it taste better- the pressure cooker roasts are amazing! I've put a whole roaster size chicken in and it comes out full of flavor (chicken broth, onions, orange/mango juice) I hope it lasts- because I am donating my old crock. I have yet to try it for canning. But cant wait.
My only dislike is when I underestimate cooking time. When timer goes off I cannot turn back on to cook longer until it cools down. (10 minutes)

I bought one of these after one of my sons showed me his. I couldn't believe how quickly it cooked. Easy clean up also. I ordered one for me and got each of my other two sons one for Christmas. This cooked frozen pork ribs in two hours. I don't like pork ribs, but loved these. It seems to take the grease away. My son said he made black eyed peas in 20 minutes and they were so good. I have made beans and ham from dried beans in two hours. No mess, the inner pot comes out to put left overs in fridge or to put in dishwasher. This is a great gift for anyone.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Laurelai Not built to last; Light-wt pot with bad coating
I owned this pressure cooker for just under a year when it quit working--permanently. It only has a 60 day warranty, so I'm looking into buying another one, but it won't be the Power Pressure Cooker XL. It has nice features, but the weight of the pot and the coating are very poor quality. After the first roast we made in it, the Teflon started coming off. Also, we did a pork roast and sauerkraut in it once (it tasted fantastic) but the smell never went away. We smelled sauerkraut every time we used it! I did love the features, but found the Instant Pot Duo has similar features but they have added a few more and have a 1-year warranty. Most importantly, it has a stainless steel pot.

I tried the Bella first and the pot flaked in 2 days. I would like to report that this pot is way better. I have used it almost everyday since I bought it, and no flaking. I have cooked tomatoes in it several times and still great. I even hard boiled some eggs in the steamer and it worked really well. I'm still getting used to how it works, but I think it will be great in the long run.
