The Emson Electric 5Qt Smoker is a unique and impressive concept. Read on to see how that concept translates to actual use.


The seller claims it is the only combination pressure cooker and indoor smoker. Beyond those two functions it is claimed to both hot and cold smoke, steam and brown.


First impressions are that all of the materials used in construction are rather light duty. It does not look like a product that will last for years. At the 250 USD retail price it just doesn't seem to be worth the money. The outer shell has a brushed stainless steel appearance, the cover feels like aluminum, the stacking tray is very thin lightweight chrome wire and the internal cooking pot is non-stick metal. The controls are a membrane panel with status lights for each function.


The design leans toward the product being used primarily as a pressure cooker with or without smoke. As that it is easy to use and does the job (at a cost far above what a standard pressure cooker would cost). The smoke comes from a few small wood chips of your choice inserted into a small cup which is mounted on the heating electrode. The chips burn and fill the device with smoke which is pressure cooked into the food. As pressure cooking is a sealed process, very little of the smoke smell escapes into the room, until you release the pressure, that is. For those who do not want to fill their house with smoke smells it may be wise to have your kitchen exhaust fan turned on high to help vent the smell.

This is a great item for those of us living in apartments or condos where you can't have open flames and BBQ or grill the way it's supposed to be done. This pressure smoker will allow you to smoke meat inside your home. The hot smoke setting does not release smoke into the home, but you do smell a bit of smokiness while it's working. The cold smoke setting does release more of the smokiness into your cooking area. It has a limit of about 2 lbs of pork loin or about 20 chicken wings, so the capacity is good for a family but not for inviting a bunch of friends over.
You use three or four small wood chips in a specially designed container that you slide onto a heating element in the bottom. Then there is the main rack with three add-on racks to hold your food. Without the racks you can smoke a medium sized whole chicken. With the racks you can smoke chicken wings, pork, salmon, etc. I'll be smoking tomatoes soon to try a smoked tomato soup recipe that I have.
It's not inexpensive, however, I'm in Miami now where restaurants think BBQ is cooking food in an oven and putting some sauce on it. Having moved from Kansas City where there are dozens and dozens of great BBQ restaurants, this is giving me a touch of what I've missed in Florida. I will definitely get my money's worth from this pressure smoker.

Upon reading all of your reviews, I have decided to play Mighty Mouse and come to ... "Save The Day"! Lets start by taking each of your problems one at a time:

"My unit is broken and I can not get any response from the manufacturer"
I"m sorry to say that Emson Manufacturing no longer exists. My sources tell me they are in receivership, their web site has been closed down and there is no one left to answer their e-mails or phone calls. That happens way too frequently in our poor industrial economy nowdays. Some distributors may still have a small selection of various parts on hand but don't count on it. I spent nearly a year looking for a new seal before I finally found one that would work. That was only because the Chinese company that makes this unit also makes very similar pressure cookers (without the smoke option) under several different brand labels for other distributors. If our unit continues to work, Bless you ... but should it fail in the future you will be luckier to find a chicken with three legs than parts or service for your Emson smoker.

"It's too small. I can only cook enough food for a family of three."
It must be difficult to have to prepare two or three batches of food just to serve one family. Unless your family eats in shifts, the first batch is already turning cold and dried out while the second and third batch is still cooking. May I suggest you do what I did and BUY THE BIGGER ONE! That's right, Emson makes a 7 qt. model - TWO quarts more than your dinky one ... and, Amazon carries it!!!!

I love pressure cookers and have used them in cooking for about 40 years; I also formerly demonstrated several different brands in department and specialty cookware shops, so I was very eager to give the Emson pressure smoker a trial run. In the hot smoke function, which cooks and smokes food at the same time - probably the most-used function - simply put a few smoking chips into a cup, cover the cup, pour in 1/2 cup water, layer the seasoned food onto the stacking racks, seal the cooker, set the time, and press "Start." It really is that simple. So far, I've cooked pork tenderloin, chicken drumsticks, and, using the cold smoke function, a salmon fillet. To my knowledge, this is the only stovetop appliance that will cold smoke food. All the results were perfectly satisfactory. This could be fun, so my next projects will be smoked hardboiled eggs, and smoked cheese.

Details: I didn't have any chips, so I've used the finely chopped wood chips I purchased for a Cameron stovetop smoker. These worked fine, using about 1 tablespoon each time. I followed the suggested times in the instruction booklet, except for the salmon. I wanted smoked, lightly cooked salmon to place on a salad platter, and the instructed time would have produced a flakey fish suitable for mixing into pates.

Reality checks: While the pressure smoker does smoke food much faster than traditional outdoor smoking, the process is not nearly as fast as pressure cooking in a traditional pressure cooker. The Emson instructions say to cook chicken pieces for 30 minutes, which produced a slightly overcooked, but tasty dinner. A traditional pressure cooker takes ten minutes to cook chicken parts.
