    A Must-have Appliance

    I bought this during Cyber Monday sale last year. I have been using Midea Pressure Cooker at least twice a week. I was glad that I found a digital pressure cooker. With Midea Pressure Cooker, I can cook so many dishes that I normally would spend a lot of time in the kitchen. However, certain functions just doesn't work well with my cooking style - Sauté, Brown Rice and White Rice. I prefer to cook my rice in a 3-cup cooker for myself. Sauté is to brown the meat and it tends to burn the bottom of pot, which takes too long to clean. My only pet peeve was the instructional manual being highly inefficient and translated badly. At least it taught me how to get started. Since it's getting more popular, I could easily find "Midea pressure cooker recipes" on Google.

    Defective product

    This pressure cooker was a great price, perfect size, very attractive. Unfortunately the seal didn't work properly so it had no pressure. We had to return it to our local Best Buy and they don't stock it so we were unable to replace our defective one. Big disappointment. I wish we were given the opportunity to replace ours so we could see how it works!

    This is our first electric pressure cooker and we are very pleased with it. I purchased this item for my wife and she said it was very simple to use. The meat took a fraction of the time to cook, was very juicy and fell off the bones. She actually gave herself a pat on the back. Happy wife...happy life.

    Midea pressure cooker it seemed like a good idea to buy one, to make food at a faster rate without much mess. there is more than one problem, first there are no good enough instructions on how to get this thing going and you can't find anything online. second, there are no settings for certain meats and stews which keeps you guessing and the timer is hard to adjust.

    Too much for a rice cooker

    I just wanted a rice cooker which I needed to replace an old one ( I broke the glass cover). It arrived, and was shocked with so many options, as this is mostly a pressure cooker. Inside pot is stainless steel and heavy duty. Design is great. Instruction manual is lethargic. I haven't tried it yet, coz I immediately bought a simple rice cooker from Amazon.

    A solid pressure cooker

    This pressure cooker is actually very big. I think the bulk volume is enough to put a whole turkey drumstick in. The pressure heating is works very well and time is easily to set up. The only problem is that you cannot set up a cooking time by yourself, even though there will be a time displayed after you have chosen certain option.

    Thought I would like this but whenI received it i took it out of the box and there were no real instructions on how it works or how to make it work. I just winged it and sort of figured it out. Cooked some chicken and it turned out ok but it would be helpful if somethings were explained better

    Blah... Manual or any cooking pressure help is not there. It tries to be all things, but I expected more of a tool that did it all with pressure. Not just being a slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer. I wanted a "Cook faster alternative" that was easy to use, Disappointed.

    I can't figure this pressure cooker out, I just want to pressure cook and can't find the setting. I e mailed the company and did not get a reply. The instruction booklet is useless. If anyone knows how to use it, I would be grateful for the info.

    This product was a gift for my daughter-in-law. She seems to have enjoyed it very much. She was always interested in making tamales and needed a pressure cooker to do so. She is very happy with this product.

    This steamer is easy to use but it does not allow you to set a time. You must choose the food you are cooking. Does a good job cooking but could use a timer in addition to auto set.

    There isn't much information online about this particular product and there wasn't very good instructions that came with it. Once you figure it out it works pretty well.

    The pot does everything perfectly. The only ding is that the cup markings on the inner pot are not correct. Measure without using those markings and you are good to go.

    I am very happy with this cooker. Does everything it claims. The only concern is the outside shell is soft. When you pick it up it sinks in. I am always looking to make sure it pop's out.

    Pressure Cooker (rice and family meals). NOTHING about canning even small jars for a small family. The CHEAP pressure cookers can do all this does, PLUS can be used to Can.

    Only used it for a month and have been satisfied. Easy to use and clean. The instructions can be improved. Still don't understand the differences between the options.

    Have cooked several dishes with it and all OK so far. Only real issues is the manual is poor. Not enough detail on what is happening with the multiple "presets".

    Nothing special here except it had a great price. Instructions are horrible so I'll have to play around to see how to really use it.
