I purchased the T-Fal digital pressure cooker (which I love) demonstrated by Emeril. Because he stated on air that the recipes included with the cooker were limited, his cookbook, Emeril's Cooking with Power, was hyped to provide many more pressure cooker recipes, so I ordered it a couple of days later. Well, much to my disappointment, the pressure cooker section has far fewer recipes than the free recipes included with the pressure cooker. The majority of the recipes are for slow cookers and deep fryers, which is fine if those are what you are seeking. Otherwise, don't bother to spend the extra money; create your own recipes or try to modify his for your pressure cooker!

Like using a multi-cooker, which is a pressure cooker and/or a slow cooker? Want something more than watery stew or soups? Emeril combines his love of ethnic flavors with good technique in this very useful cookbook. I have not found a truly useful slow- or multi-cooker cookbook and this looks like "the one."


The book is divided into slow cooker and multi cooker sections, so if you don't cook with pressure, at least half the book is useful. The recipe starts with a photograph of the finished dish, then ingredients followed by method

Types of Recipes

Mostly, this book is soups, stews, sides and pasta, with some desserts (cheesecake, s'mores pudding, tapioca, dulce de leche rice, drunken cherries.) Even though a lot of the desserts are puddings, which shine in slow and multicookers, there are some doughnuts, fried pies and fritters for the fryer.

There are also recipes for basic stocks such as chicken and beef, an interesting use for the cookers.

Nutrition, Fat and Calories

Aside from some beans and sides and soups, pretty heavy stuff. Cheese. Butter. Beef. Pork. Not diet food. There are some lighter dishes, eggplant, etc but if you are a weight-watcher, I'd pass on this cookbook.

Advice, Tips, Tricks

There is a section on how to buy, featuring Emeril's multicooker and electric fryer, but there are similar ones on the market without his brand; naturally he's touting his own cookware line. There is a chapter for pressure alone. He also gives advice on electric fryers. I don't own one and never will; it's said if you buy one, you can gain quite a bit of weight and I believe it. Just don't go there if you don't eat fried foods, and I do not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Capable of being a favourite January 13, 2014
Hands up who doesn't have kitchen cupboards full of various gizmos and gadgets that do not get used as much as they should be… Strange that! Maybe this book will help.

The author provides over 100 recipes that will let you find a use for your slow cooker, multi-cooker, pressure cooker and deep fryer, giving you a lot more things to try than you might have considered possible if you had relied just on the manufacturer's own recipe book, if the device even came with one! The recipes are split according to "machine type" so you won't be trying to deep fry something in your pressure cooker (!). Advice is given for each machine and then it is straight on to the recipes and time to get cooking.

Light and breezy would be two good words to describe this book's design, making it ideal for lazy browsing or "stress-filled" cookery sessions whilst your family is buzzing around you. The recipes are clearly and simply written, well presented and easy to focus upon. It would have been nice, however, for an estimation of preparation and cooking times to have been given. An acknowledgement that people who live outside of the U.S. might like this book too would surely not have been too much - why in 2013 must one still complain about the use of sole U.S. imperial units?

Clearly this book cannot be a comprehensive guide to everything and anything for your particular kitchen machine but it does give you a good excuse to get it out of the cupboard, blow the dust off it and fall back in love with it. Once you've then exhausted the broad range of recipes on offer, you can always then search after another book to continue your culinary love affair with. Yet considering the price of the book, the range of recipes and its core raison d'être, this is a good, credible book that could become a favourite for many.

Got this especially for the section on electric pressure cookers. I had purchased a multi cooker and there is a lack of cookbooks out there for electric pressure cookers. I have used some of the recipes and they came out great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting the best out of my cookers January 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Have tried three recipes so far. Two pressure and one slow cooker. All were delicious. If you like green beans cooked Southern style, have to try the Green Beans with Smoked Ham Hock. Had checked the book out from the library and now it's part of my ebook collection.
