  • Q: Perception is the cooker blow up a lot. How safe it is ?  (5 Answers)

    By Taufiq 

    • Best answerThat perception of danger likely comes from the old stove top pressure cookers. My mom was a great cook, but knew only one burner setting - 100% wide open. So our stove top pressure cooker would be hissing, venting clouds of steam, rattling, seemingly ready to blow up. By contrast, modern automatic pressure cookers use only the heat needed to reach and maintain temperature and pressure, and they vent very little steam. Additionally, the Cuisinart Instruction Booklet lists seven safety features which provide several independent safety redundancies. These include features that limit temperature and pressure in the cooker.

  • Q: Is this comparable to the Insta Pot?  (5 Answers)

    By Vera 

    • Best answerThere are a number of electric pressure cooker brands out there, and they all pretty much do the same thing. Some of different functions (I believe the Instant Pot can make yogurt, the others can't). Some have preset buttons (which are just minutes to cook - all the pressure/temp is the same), and others just have the times you push. Some you can adjust pressure, others you can't - however, most recipes will be cooked on HIGH, which is what the cookers default to.
