I have already used my new cooker about ten times so far to make several soups, a stew, pork chops with onions and potatoes, Swiss steak, garlic mashed potatoes, risotto and even mac & cheese! My new Lux Pot works great and takes the guesswork out of cooking, especially pressure cooking. Who'd have thought I'd ever pressure cook mac & cheese? Filled to about 3/4" from the rim, I got 7 quarts of soup. I have two Fagor stovetop pressure cookers, two slow cookers, several enameled iron Dutch ovens and a bunch of stock pots I may never use again!
Update: Reduced rating from 5 to 3 stars. As stated above, I love(d) the way this multi-cooker performed... until it didn't. As I was browning country ribs in preparation for tonight's dinner it simply stopped working - no heat, no lights, no nothing. Tried it in two other outlets but no joy. I'm usually not lucky like this but when my Fagor cooker failed it was within a month of my order so can return it to Amazon, not Fagor. I've had good experiences with Fagor stove-top pressure cookers so I don't know if this suggests a problem with their electronics or was just a fluke. I'm going to look around before I replace it but since it's one of the few 8 qt. pots offered I might just buy another one.
It works perfectly, feels rugged, and is so handsome my kitchen look better. Although I cook mostly just for myself, I bought the 8 qt model. This is the volume you get filled to the brim. It can only be filled to 5 1/2 qt for pressure cooking, and it has 50% more browning surface than the 6 qt model. I can get 2 rotisserie chickens in there for stock or a 12 pound batch of stew. The larger model is 14 inches high in the closed position. The main cylinder is about 12 inches in diameter. So it is an easy fit for a tiny kitchen -- comfortable under wall cabinets. It is best left on the counter. I can afford to devote a precious foot to its permanent presence since it does so many things.
I also bought the stainless steel bowl because that is what I need for browning. It is weakly magnetic. Handy to have an extra bowl and a nonstick finish option for rice. They are beautifully made, but the pressed in graduations are hopelessly inaccurate and useless. I put the bowl on a scale to weigh in ingredients. The inside bottom radius is pretty tight, so I am careful to stir food out of the corner as it slow cooks. One slight irritation is the bowl spins freely inside the cooker. So stirring is a 2 handed task. The bowls are 7 inches high and 9 1/4 inches in diameter. It is quick and easy to scald a jug of milk with a water jacket for the "Yogurt By The Gallon" technique.
The instruction manual is useful with cooking time tables for dozens of generic ingredients. The Fagor website offers a PDF with dozens of tested full recipes. So it is easy to get started with good results.
Of course preparing foods well is most important, but speed and convenience are the key features. Opening and closing the lid is an easy single-handed twist and lift. It weights only 2 1/2 pounds. With warmup and cool down, beans take an hour instead of all day. Mirepoix is tender in a blink. I can get a dozen servings of luxurious soup or meals with no fuss. Clean up with a bottle brush is ridiculously easy. It uses very little power (1 or 2 cents per meal) and the outside surfaces never seems to get too hot to handle. This means my kitchen stays comfortably cool. It also gives me confidence to leave the cooker unattended. There is no drama; just perfectly cooked food in a hurry with no bother.
My main use is to cook food for my dog (a big dog. I cook a whole chicken, plus yams and green beans) and needed and 8 quart unit.
I got this and a stainless steel inner pot. It does the job
I also use it to cook chili and stew.
I like that you can brown first, then slow cook, or pressure cook, all in the same pot.
The removable pots are easy to clean.
Its not entirely odor free. While it doesn't "hiss", it still releases pressure and odors after cooking.
Timer for pressure cooking only goes to 99 minutes.
It cooks at 5 lb or 10 lbs of pressure, not 15 (so I have to cook the chicken for longer).
The silicone gasket is more difficult to remove and replace, and tends to retain odors.
So far this cooker is holding up just fine, does everything we've tried so far very well (mostly high pressure meats, rice, and dishes, plus browning). We like the ceramic and the stainless steel pans, and it's nice to have two to switch out if I'm using pressure for more than one dish at a meal.
I'm probably going to try to make raw goat milk yogurt in this cooker just to see if I can do away with my sous vide/PID/slow cooker setup that I currently use.
