    Amazing Cooker

    We bought the Gourmia Pressure Cooker as a Mothers' Day gift for my wife, but it has turned into an incredible gift for the whole family. I have been astounded by the huge number of easy recipes we have found to make everything from Fettucine Alfredo to Pot Roast, usually with everything just thrown into the cooker with minimal prep. Things that formerly took twenty to thirty minutes to cook by traditional methods are done in five or six minutes. The pot roast that used to slow cook for six hours or more? Now it's done in forty minutes. It is incredible! The device itself is quiet, sits on a countertop and safely runs from a single plug. The lid and pressure release are set up so that it is very difficult to burn yourself with steam. Cleanup is super-easy; a quick rinse of the no-stick pot and a scrub with just a dot of dish detergent leaves it perfectly spotless. We just dry the pot out and put it back in the cooker, ready for the next meal. The control scheme takes a few minutes to puzzle out and many of the recipes you will find online are written for a competing brand, InstaPot, but with a little practice you will have no trouble interpreting them for a Gourmia Smart Pot.

    I made pulled pork in the pot the day after I received it. 12.5 lbs of pork to be exact! And I can’t believe how easy it was compared to my usual routine. The pork cooked incredibly fast, 70 minutes, and tastes amazing! The pork just fell apart for me as I was putting bbq sauce in it. It would’ve taken a full day or more to cook that much pork my usual way. The pressure cooker was super easy to clean also. I then made corn on the cob after and that took 8 mins for 6 ears of corn! And it was the best taste I’ve had with corn!! I highly recommend this pressure cooker to anyone looking to decrease cooking times. I love it.

    Made great chili; chicken with chutney and getting ready to make wild rice salad. I've found it easy to use and I only have one pot to clean at the end. What could be better than that!! Looking forward to making more of the recipes that came with the cooker and I can't wait to buy another cookbook that has recipes for a multi-cooker and try them. It was worth the $$$ and it is worth the time needed to prep the foods and put into the pot and FORGET IT!! So far everything has been delicious and this cooker just may make me look forward to cooking.

    Purchased this about a month ago & we've used it almost every evening for dinner. I had heard good things about pressure cooker but didn't realize they were this fast & easy & we've barely scratched the surface. We have made ribs a couple times and you can't even hardly pick the ribs up because they try to fall apart on you. Every food item that we have cooked in it has been so moist & full of flavor. We like it so much we will be giving these out as gifts to friends & relatives in the near future. I would definitely recommend this. If you decide to get this I would recommend at least the 8 quart.

    I bought this to try and make cooking easier and faster. So I found that it does help but you really have to still plan because even though the machine states that it can make a meal in 20 min, it takes 10-20 min just to pressurize so add that "cook time" to your plans. I have made a few different meals in it. The best was a seafood pot. I cooked the potatoes and corn first then added the shrimp for 3 min cook, otherwise you get hard/mushy shrimp if that makes any sense. Overall it is great to use instead of having to wait.

    This pressure cooker is one of the best on the market. This pressure cooker is amazing. It's controls are designed to make using the pressure cooker simple, and easy. I was able to use it with no prior experience. Even better It cleans like a charm. I was skeptical about using a pressure cooker, but I'm so happy I did because this is a great appliance. It has cut my cooking times down significantly. If you want to cook rice, beef, chicken in a more precise shorter time, you need to get this cooker.

    I have a newborn in the house makes it kind a hard to prepare a full meal but with this pressure cooker that's no longer a problem. It is amazing how you can just toss the food in with all the ingredients and minutes later it's all cooked to perfection I don't know why I didn't buy one of these sooner since most of our time is taken up taking care of the baby it is nice to just toss everything in and not have to worry about it it does the cooking for you amazing product

    The 8 quart is the way to go when you want a pressure or slow cooker. You can fit enough in it for 6 person family and probably more. I was a little skeptical about this one in the beginning but I have it for about 5 or 6 weeks now and I love it. Lots of features so do yourself a favor and read instructions booklet first. That was probably the hardest part having to read everything first knowing I just wanted to use it right away but well worth the wait.

    I had seen all the stuff online about instant pots and other pressure cookers that seemed to be all the rave so when I saw this one on sell I figured I'd give it a shot. I've only made 4 meals in it so far but they have all been a success. I haven't messed around a w all the different settings yet but I will at some point. It's def cuts dinner time at least in half which is great for someone who works full time. Would def recommend!

    We have used it about six times and it has worked very well. Beef, chicken, vegetables cook thoroughly and in a short amount of time. Much faster than cooking the same thing in the oven and there is no chance you will dry out the food. Typical cooking time is 25 to 55 minutes. It's also easy to clean up due to the non-stick pot. The recipe book is small, but there are hundreds of recipes all over the net.

    I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I purchased this item. I’d read some really good reviews and some things on Facebook. But I’m not going to lie once I received it and used it the same day. I was so impressed at how fast and perfect everything came out . I’ve have the item about three weeks and used it about three times each week. Each recipe never failing to disappoint. I highly recommend

    Works as pressure cooker and crock pot

    Bought this on sale instead of highly touted Instapot. This also got very good reviews and was a much better value. Have used it as a crockpot/slow cooker and pressure cooker and have very pleased with the results. The none stick coating makes it easy to clean. Only con is hard plastic smooth feet make it very slippery on the countertop. I place it on a silicone mat and that solved the problem.

    I got this pressure cooker on a Deal of the Day. It seems to have been a great value at 50% off. 8 quarts is quite big. The first thing I tried doing was cook frozen chicken, just because I have never done that before. I'm sure it would have been tastier if I had thawed it, but it seemed to be cooked thru in less than an hour. I'm looking forward to trying new recipes in this.

    I love this cooker! Despite it not having the big brand name of other instant pots, it is excellent. I’ve actually sent others looking for an instant pot to BB for this particular model, I love it so much! I’ve had zero issues from it, and have literally cooked almost every meal in it since I got it!

    Easy to use. Chop up veg both fresh & frozen add tomatoe juice press soup. Follow directions for making sure unit is closed first. Cooker will heat & seal for pressure. After a short time on pressure the unit will go into warm mode. Makes homemade soup quick & easy. Non-stick cooking pot makes clean-up easy.

    I bought this because everyone was raving about them. I only used it once since I bought it mainly because I like my crock pot and i have to relearn how to use this each time. I had to use the manual to make sure I timed it correctly and measured the liquids. The device itself is nice but it is big so make sure you get the size you need.

    Really enjoy the pressure cooker as it has made cooking so much easier with busy lifestyle. Pretty much meal prep the night before and as soon as someone gets home adds it to the pressure cooker and starts dinner without having to stand and oversee everything on the stove. Great addition to the kitchen!

    I bought pressure cooker for my brother and sister-in-law. When I gave it to her, she was like wow wow. How does it work? We told her. She started pulling food out of the freezer and proceeded to cooking. She cooked chicken, beef and pork. All of this was after 10 pm The pressure cooker worked very well. All of the food was juicy and tender. They love the Gourmia Pressure cooker.

    Only complaints are that the lid doesn't have full insulation, so there are sections too hot to touch, unlike the Crockpot. The cooking pot also moves with the stirring motions, unlike the Crockpot. What makes it a competitor to the Crockpot? Value. Got more volume per dollar. And it doesn't give off a heated plastic smell like the Crockpot.
