Rated 1 out of 5Â by DaveWo Safety feature makes it frustrating to cook
I got this to replace my 30 year old stove top model. If you want to make simple throw it in the pot and cook recipes this will work. If, however, you want to "cook" in this device you will be frustrated. If you brown or saute before beginning the pressure cook there's a good chance you will not be able to start because the machine will keep shutting off. Twice I have attempted to make a chicken and rice dish and both times after browning meat and sauteing veggies the unit would refuse to come to pressure and cook. The second time I just dumped it all into my old cooker and finished on the stove. I would not recommend this pressure cooker.

This is the 2nd one I've bought for another house. This cooker does it all from browning the meat, to sauteing to simmer. Then you set the time for the cooker and leave it. No longer do you have to wait for the jiggles etc. And once it's finished, it switches over to "keep warm". Meat is tender you can cut it with a fork. For those that have used the old stove top pressure cookers, you will love this.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by esperron1303 Love this Pressure Cooker
I had heard a lot of good things about a pressure cooker so I decided to invest in one. This pressure cooker is easy to use and is everything I expected it to be so far. I bought two cookbooks exclusively for pressure cookers and have tried many new recipes that have been outstanding. I can honestly say, I really don't have any interest in pulling out a slow cooker again. Most meats/meals can be cooked in 30 minutes or less and are tender, juicy, and delicious. I live by reviews so I felt it necessary to review this product because it really is a great product. So, if there is anyone looking for a pressure cooker, even as a beginner, this is the one...you won't regret it!

I've had my small stove-top pressure cooker and large pressure canner for years. Decided to treat myself to a new counter-top pressure cooker, did some research, and decided on this Cuisinart.
Unpacked it, read through the manual, and plugged it in. I was a bit cautious at first, but after the first time using it (cooked a pork shoulder to perfection in less than an hour), I was hooked!
Very easy to use (even with all the buttons!), quiet, and easy to clean.
