Rated 5 out of 5 by ziggy girl from State of the art Pressure cooker I bought my Starfrit pressure cooker a few weeks ago, and i cannot say enough about how wonderful this great product is, the first thing i made was rice, and i can honestly say that it is the best rice i have ever had in my entire life, and i am in my 70s. I use to own a stove top pressure but i was always afraid to use it, this beauti is just perfect, I made my husband his birthday cake and baked it in my Starfrit, It turned out perfect, as did the Chilli, and roast beef. I read all the reviews about pressure cookers, before ordering, and this Starfrit pressure/Multi cooker had the best reviews, I am so happy with this great cooker that I am going to bu the air fryer next, and then the electric grill after that,

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yoshi42 from Why did I not buy this sooner? I purchased this a few months ago, and have been thoroughly impressed with its performance. I cook a lot of beans, lentils, peas, and rice, and this pressure cooker is perfectly suited for it. It does extrememly well with soups and chilis as well. It has a variety of settings and is exremely user friendly; the manual is also designed very well. I would highly recommend this as an initial purchase, or if you are looking for a replacement for an instant pot or another pressure cooker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NearNorth from So simple to use after you read the instructions I had my doubts about a computer working out the perfect cooking time for some products, but this one shines in that department. It takes a bit to read and re-read which bits of instruction you need at which time, but in the end it all came together for us. We let the cooker do the work and didn't have to resort to the usual arguments about which way is right. That Top Sirloin and mushrooms came out of the post cooked to perfection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trev9817 from The Hype Was Right Bought product earlier today and made beef flavoured steamed rice. I haven't had rice that good in quite a while! The product is very easy to use and clean - although a bit intimidating. I remember horror stories of pressure cookers of yesteryear - so you can probably understand my intimidation. The manual and this product helped me overcome that feeling. Now I can't wait to try more complex recipes in the future! I'm hooked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by C McLeod from Love how fast this cooks my meat! Bought for my wife for Christmas, first time using this bad boy and we decided to try pork carnitas. We're both extremely busy throughout the day, we came home and threw the marinated (did this the night before) pork butt in the pressure cooker, a couple presses of the button and boom! We had a perfectly cooked pork in 45 minutes. Next time we will try the slow cooker method.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazz1222 from Food tastes amazing!!! I've used it for a few months now and love this product. I go online looking for recipes so I can use the pressure cooker. Food turns out perfect every time and when I get busy I don't have to worry because it keeps my food warm automatically. The features are easy to use and it's easy to clean. I've always been scared of pressure cookers but this is so easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Penelopeloveschicken from Love my pressure cooker! I got this for Christmas last year as a gift and thought uh oh, I don't think I need another kitchen tool! Was I ever wrong! It's great!! I was scared of using a pressure cooker, but it's so easy to use, clean up so easily, and I use it even when I'm not using it as a pressure cooker, it's great for frying too! Everything I've made in it has turned out great!

I make bone broth- it requires 2-3hours at pressure and instant pots can do this, however, this machine is max 60min with soup function. Is there anyway around this? All pressure cookers on market can go beyond this 60min max - how can it be done here?
Good day, Your pressure cooker can not go beyond 60 minutes. If you want to add cooking time, please add it manually at the end of the cycle. Thank you and have a good day

I just bought the 8.5Q pressure cooker thinking it was also a slow cooker, but I don't see a button or an option for slow cooker. I see the 6Q has a slow cooker button. Please advise.
Good day, If you look at the bottom of the unit and the model number is 024603 there is a button on the facing of the unit saying slow cook. If you have further questions, please contact our customer service in the below link https://www.starfrit.com/en/contact-us Thank you

Can I boil water with the top off and if so how do we I do it?
Good Day, As per your question, you can boil water with the top on and use the function Sauté. This temperature ranges from 150-155C, which is high enough to boil water. Please take note that this appliance is mainly used to pressurize to reduce cooking time.

When I use my pressure cooker, a lot of steam comes out of the top, and the proper pressure is not reached. As a result, I am unable to cook my food properly. Do you have any suggestions?
Good day, Please check if the pressure release valve (Steam Vent) is in correctly positioned (pointing in the middle), that the sealing ring inside the lid is installed properly and in good condition. Once this is confirmed, gently push down the lid before turning on the appliance. If it does not pressurize, the sealing ring may need to be changed. Thank you

I keep getting error E4? According to the manual it is the seal but I've checked it multiple times and nothing seems wrong with it. I have only used the cooker 2 times. The manual says contact support, so does that mean your product died within 2 uses?
