Cook Faster, Eat Healthier!
Reduce time spent in the kitchen preparing meals with the help of this 6-quart electric pressure cooker--it cuts cooking times up to 70-percent when compared to traditional stovetop cooking methods. The unit traps steam inside, which builds up pressure to create hotter temperatures, and its tight seal locks in heat, moisture, and flavor, as well as vitamins and minerals for exceptionally healthy, great-tasting meals like soup, chili, and other one-dish entrees. It also works well for cheesecake and custard, because dessert should never be left off the menu. The unit's push-button controls and easy-to-read digital display eliminate guesswork, while its precision digital thermostat regulates temperatures. Choose from preprogrammed settings for high- or low-pressure cooking, browning, simmering, sauteing, and warming. For safety, the cooker must be fully locked for pressure to build, and it will remain locked until the pressure inside drops to zero. Other highlights include a 99-minute timer with an LED countdown display, cool-touch side handles, and a nonstick cooking pot that cleans up easily by hand or in the dishwasher. A dishwasher-safe trivet also comes included. Housed in brushed stainless steel, the 1000-watt pressure cooker measures 12-1/5 by 12-1/5 by 13-1/5 inches and carries a three-year limited warranty.
You're about to experience a better, faster, and healthier way of cooking. Your Cuisinart Electric Pressure Cooker seals in steam to cook hotter and faster, and it seals in nutrients as well. Cook in less water and experience textures and tastes that are simply sensational. Features easy touch-button settings, a countdown timer, and a cooking pot big enough for a pot roast with all the fixings. Enjoy!
Pressure Cooker Settings
• Low Pressure
• High Pressure
• Browning – This preset temperature allows cooking over high heat, without the lid, before pressure cooking. Browning foods in a small amount of fat in this way seals the outer surfaces of meats and vegetables, producing a visually appealing, flavorful exterior with a moist, tender interior.
• Sauté – The preset temperature, done prior to pressure cooking with lid removed, allows you to quickly soften vegetables in a small amount of fat or liquid without browning, and to cook items such as rice (Arborio, brown, Carnaroli, white, etc.) for pilafs and risottos.
• Simmer – This preset temperature allows you to cook liquids at a lower temperature. It is primarily used to finish cooking some items, i.e. to add ingredients to a risotto, sauce, or stew or to continue cooking process to achieve preferred texture.
• Keep Warm – Holds and keeps cooked food warm for up to 12 hours. Automatic Keep Warm Feature: When LED display reaches, the pressure cooker automatically shifts to Keep Warm temperature. The Keep Warm light will turn on and unit will beep to indicate cooking is complete.

- With the unit on and the LED displayed, press the MENU button to select the desired cooking function. The function light will flash.
- Select Low or High Pressure setting.
- Press TIME to select number of minutes needed for pressure cooking. Time increases in 1-minute increments up to 40 minutes. Time increases in 5-minute increments from 40 to 99 minutes.
- Press START/CANCEL to start cooking. The pressure cooker will begin to heat. The red float will rise as pressure builds. When the selected pressure level is reached, the light in lower right-hand corner of LED will stop flashing and remain lit. At this point pressure cooking begins and the timer will start to count down. The timer will not begin to count down until full pressure is reached, which may be several minutes after the red float has fully risen.
Recipe Tips and Hints
• Many family favorites can be easily adapted for preparation in your Cuisinart Electric Pressure Cooker – soups, stews, side dishes and more.
• The amount of liquid needed is much less than for traditional cooking methods.
• Never exceed the Maximum Fill Amount of the pressure cooker.
• Make sure the lid is on firmly and tightly, and moved as far counterclockwise as it will go to allow proper locking.
• Hot foods/liquids will come to pressure more quickly than cold foods/liquids.
• When pressure cooking is completed, follow recipe instructions for releasing pressure. For Quick Pressure Release it is important to begin immediately upon completion of pressure cooking; otherwise foods will continue to cook, and may overcook.
• Do not store pressure cooker with lid on tightly. This saves on gasket wear and tear.
• More nutrients are preserved during pressure cooking than with traditional cooking methods, as less liquid is used and thus fewer nutrients are lost to evaporation.
• To adapt your own recipes, find a similar one in our cookbook and use it as a guide. In general, cooking time will be at least 1⁄3 to . of the traditional cooking time. Reduce your cooking liquid by at least half – you may need to "play" with your recipe to get it right. You may wish to add vegetables at the end of cooking to avoid overcooking. You can also use the cooking charts provided as a guide.

Rigorous almost daily use proved too much for it. Plastic parts (the handle) started pilling off and cracking (see photos 1 & 2). Consequently I am downgrading it to 3 stars! Now I am shopping for a life long all metal electric pressure cooker like the new Breville Fast Slow Pro Pressure and Slow Cooker
Other than that, it's worked flawlessly over the years. I use it maybe 3-4 times a month, sometimes more. I put the lid into the dishwasher as well as the pot.
Would have preferred a stainless cook pot rather than no stick one. Do not like to sauté in a non stick pot.
Arrived on time as promised. Packing was good.
Would definitely recommend it.
I work long hours, so the last think I want to do after a twelve hour day is cook. Now, I'm able to make beans for beans and rice while I'm at work! I just start it before I leave. Or, when I come home, I can whip up lentil soup in a half hour flat. For those of you unfamiliar with how this works, you set the cooker for either high pressure or low pressure and a timer for how long you want the food to cook once it's reached that pressure. Then, when the timer's done, it switches to the keep warm setting and you can either turn the release valve and have the pressure release in a matter of seconds or leave it be and it will naturally and slowly release. Because I normally start it before leaving for work or before going to bed, I rarely use the quick release. And just a heads up, if the food is sitting on the keep warm setting for over an hour the food starts to change a little. However, although I leave it sitting on keep warm for hours on end, the food has always come out great and I've had no problems.
An example of how I use this product from this past week: I bought a whole chicken on manager's special for a couple of dollars. I soaked the chicken overnight in salt water, then cooked it in the pressure cooker while I was at work, per the instructions in the recipe book. Then, I came home, took the meat off the bones, and made a chicken etouffe with the meat (not in the pressure cooker). I then cooked the bones overnight to make the best stock I've ever tasted, using the recipe from the recipe book. I put the stock in the fridge in the morning then came home from work and used it to make lentil soup in the pressure cooker. So, for under ten dollars and about one hour of work time, I made two great dishes from scratch. I brought some in for pregnant people at work and everyone was amazed and wanted to come over to learn to cook. I'm afraid once they see how little effort I put in they'll no longer be impressed.
Lastly, not to sound like an infomercial, but this product is slowly but surely paying for itself. It's saving me money because it uses so much less electricity than my electric stove, and cooks things so much faster, but also because being that I'm able to come home and cook a good meal in under an hour, I'm grabbing food on my way home from work a lot less and am no longer purchasing the kinda-pricy frozen meals. And also, it cooks beans better than anything I've ever tasted before, so I'm eating way more beans and rice, at about 55 cents a serving.
To round it up, the Cuisinart pressure cooker is the best culinary investment I've made. It cooks food better than my stovetop pressure cooker and my slow cooker. For workaholics like me with little time to cook, it's been perfect.
