  • Great for single or couples!

    This is an awesome multi-function pressure cooker. Love the fact that you can brown/sear meats first prior to cooking under pressure (and PS this seems to help heat the pot so it comes to pressure more quickly). This is my first electric pressure cooker so I'm still playing with recipes and adjusting the liquids and times to account for this change but this has been a great purchase so far. I've done baby back ribs, two chicken and rice dishes and a pot roast...all have come out great. This is a great alternative to the much more expensive InstantPot. I saw some negative reviews that seem to be due to the user not understanding how to increase the timer and some who may not have done the initial water pre-cooking run. Read the manual and follow the directions and all should work well.

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Used this for the first time on the slow cooker mode, lamb was very tender and moist ... with Indian sauce, potatoes, veggies, every thing was cooked perfect and kept warm until we arrived home, loved not having to stand around watching and stirring every half hour to prevent burn or food sticking to pot. Thank you Elite and HSN, I am very happy, can't wait to try pressure cooker mode. A satisfied customer for 20 years, Elvis, NYC/TX

  • Elite Bristro 4qt Elecric Pressure Cooker

    OMG!!!! I am so so very pleased that I bought this pressure cooker. This is my third pressure cooker in over so many years from different brands and this one is the Best!!!!!I've had other name brands and this one out did those. Most of the time when I cook frozen or half frozen to unthawed chicken breasts, it is tough. This one, I start off slow cook for an hour or more, then, switch to 40 minutes pressure cooking(when unthawed) and my chcken has been coming falling off the bone. I've baked a cake and was shocked how wonderful it came out, rice, you name it.. I love it!!!

  • love

    this is an awesome product. dont have alot of time to cook, and really dont want to anymore!! this is so super easy!! ive only had it for a short time, but the few things ive made came out great. im still learning. i made ribs which came out moist and juicy and cooked in 12 minutes, just by pressing the meat button!! keep into consideration that it takes a few minutes to come up to pressure, and several more to come down. i used too much liquid at first, so will use minimum next time. i did a pork tenderloin on the rack which dried it out a bit. next time will be sitting in the liquid. i also made meatballs by putting them in tomato sauce with seasonings. so quick, so easy. look forward to making so much more!! oh, and did i mention that it does not heat up the kitchen? how great is that?

  • Great little pressure cooker

    I have never used a pressure cooker so was a little hesitant to purchase this product but I sure am glad I did! It is so easy to use and the food comes out so delicious and in such quick time. Since receiving it about a week ago I have made Beef with Broccoli, Barbeque Brisket Mini Sliders, Black Bean Soup and Buffalo Wings. Everything turned out great! I got most of the recipes from the Delicious Meals Made Easy cookbook from Elite. I can't wait to make more of the recipes in this book. One thing that is really great about this cooker is that it doesn't heat up the house as it is cooking. So very important during our hot Texas Summers! If you are on the fence don't hesitate to buy this pressure cooker. You will not regret it. Oh, one more thing, I was afraid it would be too small for our family of 2 adults and 4 kids but it makes plenty of food to feed all of us which was a pleasant surprise.

  • Fantastic

    I own the big 8qt and wanted a smaller size for smaller portions. This is the second one I bought and very happy with them.

  • Conditional review

    Received on Thursday. Made the best Mushroom Roast beef I've ever eaten (4#) in 1 hour on Friday. Sunday planned a chicken, rice, and vegetable meal but unit would not work.Good news is HSN said another unit is on the way and explained the simple return procedure. I'll let you know how #2 works out.
