      I caught this at a good sale price, but it would be a good value at full price. You just pour in the ingredients, set the pressure and the time, and let it cook. It also has very useful options of sauteing and browning, which avoids having to use a separate skillet. It doesn't have a lot of buttons like some other units, but pressure cooking boils down to [pun intended] pressure (=temperature) and time. Two minor things I wish could be improved: 1. It's a bit tricky to position the pressure limit valve in the right place. Some venting is necessary at the beginning to purge out the air. You'll hear steam blowing out until you learn the correct (non-obvious) place to orient the valve. Once the unit starts cooking, there is very little venting. Better marking on the unit, or an obvious "click" in place would help. 2. The gasket picks up quite an odor from garlic, spices, etc., and the dishwasher doesn't remove it. I keep baking soda in the cooker between uses, which helps. A little geek-speak here re pressure cooking in case anybody else on the planet also finds this interesting! Cooking is basically a lot of complex chemical reactions. There's a very approximate rule of thumb in chemical reactions that a 10°C (18°F) rise in temperature doubles the reaction rate (halves the time). Not precise, more a guesstimate. Higher pressures mean water boils at a higher temperatures, thus faster reactions. At atmospheric pressure water boils at 212°F. At 7 psi it's 233°F. At 15 psi it's 250°F. At each of the two steps, the reaction rate approximately doubles, hence the faster cooking. The pressure holding in moisture also helps in the quality of many foods.

      Often we are all consumed with other task and errands that steals us away from the who matter most, family and friends. This item will definitely help you gain some of that time back in the Kitchen. First time I used it I put a whole chicken. Browned the outside with the bird after seasoning thoroughly. Threw in baby red skins and carrots raw...28min after starting the high pressure. That birds was done! I love this pressure cooker. The only drawback I have with this cooker is the pressure release time. Some entrées will require the pressure to naturally release. It takes forever (exaggeration), but it's longer than I want to wait after hearing the beep and smelling the goodness within throughout my kitchen. Regardless, clean up is a breeze and if you truly can't wait for the natural pressure release, turn the pressure dial to quick release but know you stand a chance of ruining your meat. Impatiently, I've tried to release the pressure slowly and my bird still came out juicy. Be careful with the release, too much at one time and you might burn your fingers. Top won't open while pressurized of course. Happy eating. Very simple and straight forward to use, I just have to get better knowing how much water to add and make sure you have a pair of tongues to get your bird out, because it will fall apart easily with the wrong gear trying to remove it. My 7 year old like anything that comes from this thing!

      Had been thinking about getting a pressure cooker for probably more than a year and finally committed to purchasing one roughly 2 months ago. I always thought to myself "What exactly would i cook in it?" When it finally came i still didn't know what to use it for so i just started using it for most things: rice, pasta with sauce and meatballs, corn; they all came out great. Rice comes out creamy almost like risotto, that might be because i don't put the correct amount of water but i love when it comes out like this. Also attempted making things that i have hated making in the oven in the past. Pot roast takes 4+ hours and i have never been able to make ribs tender even having them in the oven over 8 hours i just gave up on them. This makes the meat fall apart in only 30 minutes it's amazing! Also used it to make soups. Has a great feature so you can brown/sauté so you don't have to use the stove to brown meat before hand or sauté veggies. I chose this model mostly because it was one of the highest rated on Amazon, Best Buy priced matched them for me so that is why i ultimately purchased from them :)

      Downright Perfect

      When I got this I really didn't know what to expect. I had heard a lot of pros of pressure cooking but wasn't sure if it was really up to all of the hype. I did a lot of checking before finally settling on this one. The instruction booklet isn't very user friendly in explaining things. I got more info off Google and YouTube than that booklet inside of it but, that is not a reflection of the machine itself. Once you get the hang of it and figure out what they are actually saying the set up is so easy its almost embarrassing that the booklet confused so much. Its effortless! Like most I like easy and this is very easy. Use was a breeze and it performed perfectly. Literally start and walk away. The timer is loud enough to be heard in other rooms and even if you can't jump up and go to it right away, it auto goes into warm while it de-pressurizes itself. I'm extremely happy with my purchase. I can see it will get a lot of use.

      I must have really wanted one of these, because after receiving two from online orders that were dented, I returned the second one to a store and they let me open and inspect the one on their shelf to be sure it was not dented. (Even though I experienced this problem, I must compliment Best Buy's customer service. They were amazing both online and in the store in rectifying this issue, so you can be sure any problems will be addressed in the most professional, pleasant and fair way.) So, on to the product. I wanted to test the operation of the product right away so if there were any mechanical problems, I could return this one also. I bought a pork shoulder roast and researched some recipes for pulled pork. I read the directions (which I found adequate) and launched the cooker. I left to do some errands and when I returned I had fabulous, tender pork that I then shredded for pulled pork sandwiches. All my family loved it and I can't wait to explore more recipes. The cooker manual has very few recipes in it, but there are tons online so that was not at issue for me. I'm so happy with my purchase. I can definitely recommend this pressure cooker to anyone in the market.

      Disappointed...buy different pressure cooker...

      Started malfunctioning only 5 months after buying it. It won't let you change the cooking setting...rendering it useless. Checked my account to return it but the status is “No longer returnable” to Best Buy. At this price point, and with all the positive reviews, I expected to get my money's worth. Similar reviews validate that this pressure cooker indeed has an issue with the buttons malfunctioning and becoming unresponsive. Unfortunately, this is the second electronic item I have purchased from best buy this year which has become a waste of money. I will not be making the mistake of buying anything electronic from best buy again. Don't buy this pressure cooker and always read the lowest reviews before purchasing.

      Even Better Than I Hoped it Would Be

      There are several of these pressure cookers on the market but I have to say that I love this one. A lot of people recommend the InstantPot but I didn't like that it didn't have a non-stick interior. I saw a few youtube videos where people tried to brown something in the InstantPot first but it just stuck to the bottom. They played it off like it was no big deal but oh man, that's a deal breaker for me. Enter this beautiful piece of kitchen hardware. Skin-on chicken browned perfectly, beef and pork browned perfectly, I just can't say enough about how important that is. Of course the cooking is fantastic too. It's so quiet compared to my old stovetop model and it actually couldn't be easier to operate. Pioneer woman has a slow cooker brisket that is delicious but takes 5 to 6 hours in a crock pot. I get the same result in about 45 minutes... Amazing. If it was up to me, I would cook every meal in this thing. You absolutely can't go wrong with this one.

      Bought short ribs, braised them with onions, placed in pot, liberally sprinkled sweet Baby Ray's over with vegges and an hour and half later, eat an amazing stew with a mouth watering flavour!! All yours!! Just do NOT let your wife get to it with a potato masher- it will damage the inner surface of the (SOFT) non stick pot. The directions are comprehensive and will have to be followed to adjust to cook a variety of recipes (NO PRESETS) This is the only reason not a 5 star- soft surface and no presets- if you are careful and you don't mind using the old brain a bit, you can have some absolutely divine meals in less than no time at all.
