The front control panel is large, easy to read and easy to use. The main difference from this pressure cooker to others is that it doesn’t allow any steam to escape and it makes no noise.

The technology used in this pressure cooker is the latest 3rd generation technology which uses an embedded microprocessor. What this means is that during the cooking process the microprocessor monitors the pressure and the temperature. This allows the pressure cooker to cook evenly and the microprocessor adjusts the heat and the length of cooking time accordingly. This results in food that is cooked perfectly and cooked consistently.

Customer Feedback on the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker

We found this pressure cooker on sale over on the Amazon website [insert link]. Customers really like the multi functions of this pressure cooker especially having the ability to use it as a slow cooker.
Below we have printed a few actual comments from customers. You can read more on the Amazon sales page if you like.

  • I have owned 8 different pressure cookers over the years, this, so far, is the best pressure cooker I have yet seen.
  • Much, much, MUCH more convenient to use than the “manual” type pressure cookers where you have to stand by until you hear the pressure has built up, then start the counter, and then turn it off when it is done.
  • Very easy to clean – since only the pot has to be cleaned, it fits in the dishwasher better than the stove-top type with handles.
  • The quality of material and build appear to be excellent. The lid, interior parts, stainless steel pot seems sturdy so far. Nothing feels cheap in this unit.

All the customers were extremely pleased with this product and in fact there are over 400 reviews that you can read. We have no problem with recommending this pressure cooker just on the basis of all the great reviews alone.

It is affordable and the multi-functional feature really mean it is a pot that you will use again and again in your kitchen.
