The Presto electric pressure cooker comes in a six quart size. The size is large enough to feed a family of four to six people. Imagine putting a hot healthy meal for your entire family on the table after working an eight hour shift and then fighting rush hour traffic to get back home. It is a reality with this electric pressure cooker. In a very short amount of time you can have your meal prepared and ready to serve. Your family will be amazed by the fabulous tasting meals you will whip up with this handy little appliance.
A steamer basket also comes with this electric pressure cooker. While your meat is pressure cooking, you can toss some vegetables in the basket to complete your meal. Steaming vegetables is the healthier method of cooking them. You are not losing all of the vitamins and minerals. Your vegetables will come out tender, yet firm. Not overcooked and mushy.
The Presto electric pressure cooker has an automatic locking lid. This is a built in safety feature, so there is not chance the lid will come lose while your pressure is building. The lid is placed on the pot and locked, then the steam and pressure will begin to build to pressure cook your meal. The lid will not unlock again until the pressure has completely escaped the pot by way of the release valve.
The Presto electric pressure cooker is made of durable stainless steel. It is easy to clean up and dishwasher safe. Not only is your meal preparation quick and easy, but this electric pressure cooker also gives you the convenience of easy clean up. Think of all of the time you will save in the kitchen, allowing you more time with the family.
Finally, this electric pressure cooker has heat control to regulate the temperature. Unlike stove top methods, the electric pressure cooker will keep a consistent heat.
Of the many customer reviews I have read through for this product, they are mostly positive. Easy to use and it reaches the pressure point quickly. There were very few negative comments about the Presto electric pressure cooker. The feet leave little black marks on the counter. The price is well worth the many great meals you will serve from this pressure cooker.
