The kitchen is my realm. But, just as all busy moms would agree, toiling for hours preparing dishes is not always possible. I’m a fan of 30-minute meals and 5-ingredient dishes. There are times, though, when I just want to have that slow cooked goodness that take hours to achieve. It’s a good thing that I found the Nesco 6-liter Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker. Since it runs on electric power, I do not even have to worry about temperature changes or burner flames. I just chop, drop, and go. In a few hours, I have a perfectly cooked dish that I can take straight from the pot to the dinner table.
This pressure cooker serves as both a slow cooker and a steamer. It can slow cook food for about 9 and a half hours. There’s also a digital timer that can be programmed to start or stop cooking. It can also be used to warm or reheat food. The package comes complete with a removable 6-liter non-stick chamber, a steam rack, and an instruction manual with a recipe book – I actually got a few more meal ideas from this little booklet. This electric pressure cooker can yield delicious casseroles, stews, soups that come out perfect every time.
It’s easy enough to use this pressure cooker, with everything controlled merely by pressing buttons. The stainless steel body also looks handsome on the kitchen counter. I’ve heard about people being scared about being scalded or burned with stovetop pressure cookers. Although this electric pressure cooker essentially works the same way, there is a safety steam release feature that helps prevent these injuries. This feature reduces the pressure in the chamber before it releases the cover. The cover also locks securely into place without any risks of any hot steam escaping.
I find it really convenient to use this product. And since everything is done in one pot, cleaning up is a cinch too. Because of the non-stick coating of the inner chamber and the controlled temperature, I do not have to worry about having to scrub off stubborn burnt food stuck to the bottom of the pan. I’d say all busy moms should have this handy cooking appliance in their kitchen.
