1. Why I chose the Mealthy MultiPot over all of the other pressure cookers on the market
Countdown screen - pressure cooking can be a huge time saver, but it often takes the pot as long as 15-20 minutes to come up to pressure. Most pressure cookers do not inform you where you are in the cooking process until the final BEEP that your food is cooked. The MultiPot has a time tracker that allows you to see where
Fast forward to the oresent, and I decided that I wanted another pressure cooker because I use the other pot so often, I wanted to be able to cook TWO things at ONCE! This pot was introduced to me by a friend, and I decided to go for it.
I LOVE THIS POT. Instant Pot who? This is my go-to pot, now. Even my HUSBAND has used this and NOT MESSED UP THE RECIPE! Here’s why:
1. This pot is much more user-friendly. The display tells you when it is preheating, which is really important
I started my search to find the most versatile, quick and simple cooking appliance that I could find. Something that

The Ninja Foodi solves the problem. When the pressure cooking is over, the meat remains in the pot. You drop the Crisp Fryer lid and brown the meat with your favorite sauce or rub. My favorite is Baby Back Ribs. Two racks of ribs are cut into 2 rib sections and doused with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. A cup of apple juice. Pressure cook for 25 minutes on HI. Remove ribs, discard liquid, clean pot and douse ribs again with BBQ sauce.
Docked some stars because even though everything works (amazingly well) the air fryer makes such a loud noise it’s almost unbearable. There appears to be some way out of balance wobbling in the fan, and the whole thing vibrates and rattles while it’s cooking. Hopefully there’s a fix for that, or i may be looking for a replacement.
UPDATE, 17 October 2019
This thing is still incredible! The noises it was making are still present, but have gotten much quieter. It’s almost like a mechanical humming, coupled with the sound of the fan blowing inside.
Also, discovered that you can power it on, and start the pressure cooking process without the lid on it. I like this a LOT because i can add my veggies, some liquid, and then add the

1. The machine can be side heavy. The air fryer lid stays on no matter what - and it causes the machine to be a bit side heavy when it is open and not in use. It won't be a problem if you keep it turned around backwards, but I had an issue when I was cleaning it. I turned it towards me and it fell off the counter and I got a nice big bruise on my calf. I thought it would be very dangerous if full of a hot liquid, but I don't think I'd ever put it in that position with it full. Still, I thought it worth mentioning. In use, I've always wanted it going the other way but to be doubly safe, I don't get it anywhere
The first thing I made was simple air fried sweet potatoes. Slice them up, shake up in a baggie with some olive oil, salt, pepper then drop them in the basket. Drop the crisping lid, follow the suggested cooking instructions and wait. You
So, with the introduction of this 6.5 quart Ninja Foodi, I was really interested to see what Ninja could bring to the table to compete. Turns out, they brought quite a lot to the table, and then some.
1.) The interface on the Ninja is in a different league to the Instant Pot. It's simplified to the max. I really like this, as the Instant Pot has so many options that are really just the same thing. This really keeps it simple.
2.) Comes to pressure so much faster than my 8 quart Instant Pot, and even feels a little faster than my 6 quart Instant Pot, too.
3.) Easy-to-read timer, with

Like going to the car dealer for a new car, think of the Instant Pot line of cookers the same way., The Lux is the base model, the Duo is the model up from the base and the Duo Plus two models up from the base and the Ultra is the fully loaded model. Just like the car dealer, - more features means more money. With a
Just recently we found that the front dialing button was stuck. I carefully removed it and found that it was bent out of shape in the portion that seats inside of the panel. It is easy to figure out that this could have happened because of the heat that the unit generates (button is made of plastic).
I contacted Instant Pot customer service asking if this was covered by warranty, or if not, how could I purchase a replacement. This is their reply:
Thank you for getting that information to us, it is appreciated.
This piece is not sold separately as the base comes as one full unit. This is not something that is covered under warranty. With that said we can offer you

Update 02/16/19: Continuing to try new things to cook. I have used all but dehydrator setting. You can also braise in this unit which is a bonus, cannot do in a PC. My only complaint at this point is the inability to purchase extras as they are backordered and they are brand specific so other PC parts don't fit. I am currently looking for a travel bag that will fit for transporting when I
The wife and I unpacked the unit and as normal she went and rinsed/washed the POT and Air fryer basket. She used regular hot tap water and some dish soap.
Immediately after putting both the pot and the basket under the hot water they both gave off a powerful smell which I cant really describe but it was not pleasant in the least.
We have since then ran them thru a few cycles in the dishwasher. The smell is not going anywhere.
My wife refuses to cook with it as the food would inherit the nasty smell.
Anyone else have this issue.... if so how did you overcome the smell ?
As of today … 3 months after purchase it is still sitting unused on the shelf.
Support site on Amazon points to Shark and they only support the Vacuums' on that site.

Interestingly I bought one to cook rice - I cook a lot and buy 15 lbs. bags at a time. I had heard pressure cookers are as good as rice cookers if not better and can be used for so much more. Also a lot of rice cookers

This cooker is amazing! For many years I was skeptical about this device. But eventually got it. And now I think my cooking habits will change. It’s so easy and fast.
It saves you so much time, you just throw all in it and “go away”... when time is up, you just open it and enjoy! No need to stay around and watch your food cooking as your regular way of cooking. And most important its TASTY!
I don’t know how, but it works.
Such a great device!
This BECOOKER brand makes sure you get all you need. It comes with manual and cooking recipes, as well as spatula and measure cup.
It includes a stemming rack as well.
SO GRATEFUL , to have it!!!
My life is so much easier NOW!
Also this company has 10 YEAR WARRANTY!
This is rare to get such a long term warranty, so I have no doubts that I
So far I couldn't have been happier with my choice of buying this pressure cooker.

I can make roasts, bbq ribs, rice pilaf, soups and baked beans in half or more of the time it takes to cook them on the stove. This 6 quart model works for my family. I don't can in this pressure cooker because I own an old fashioned on the stove model that can can 12 quarts at a time.
I find myself cooking with the pressure cooker more in the summer because if you only take half the time in the kitchen than you don't heat the kitchen up. The food in a pressure cooker

Having purchased 2 extra pot inserts for my Duo, many times I found myself preparing two or three courses, one right after the other. I wanted another Instant Pot so that I could cook two things at a time and get dinner on the table even faster. So- I bought the Smart Cooker right when they were being released, and received it in December 2014. I love to cook, and the technology as well as the ability to have an app where I could store everything to
After 9 months, the yogurt function has broken. On the normal setting, this is supposed to be an 8 hour process, but it stops around 2-3 hours. I have tried turning it off and on again, and unplugging it for a night, and it continues to never complete the yogurt process. It always stops after 2 or 3 hours. The timer on the display is frozen and will not progress (I waited many hours to see if it would ever resolve itself).
Also, I noticed that I rarely use the bluetooth function. The app is horrible, buggy and never gets improved or updated. I wish I had just gone with a standard IP to begin with. This was a huge waste of money to break after 9 months and cost more for useless poorly designed technology.
For reference, I use my IP Smart several times a month;

The saute feature is genius. It allows you to sear or semi cook something prior to pressure cooking. I've found that if I don't brown/pre-cook what I'm making, the meat doesn't have much
Several of my friends have Instant Pots and have raved about them for well over a year. I love to cook and am usually a sucker for the latest gadget but I didn’t want another bulky appliance in the kitchen that would just sit there unused. When crock pot came out with the express cooker for a cheaper price than instant pot, I was intrigued. And then it was an extra % off at target, so I caved.
I’ve had it for 10 days and have already used it numerous. I am seriously amazed by how easy it is to use and how delicious the food turns out. I made meatloaf tonight and it was, without a doubt,

So let's go through the basics here: This pressure cooker is nicely designed, with a front panel that works intuitively, and with easily followed directions. The first time I used the cooker, I wanted to make a Japanese Sweet Potato mash. Using the "Steam Potatoes" setting worked perfectly. I followed that up by cooking chestnuts - rather than roasting them, I pressure cooked them for 6 minutes at pressure setting 4. Perfect, easy to peel, and very tasty. Pretty much everything I've cooked has turned out tasty, moist, tender....I'm very pleased.

“Faulty valves: Pressure valve twice popped open in use, venting steam & liquid. Lock valve often fails to retract fully, interfering with lid release even when fully depressurized. Steam outlet seems to lack the usual in-pot safety cap. Trouble-shooting guide gives no help.”
What follows is about my second (replacement) Geek Chef. Initially this unit behaved almost as badly as the first. It’s alarming to have your PC’s steam valve come open with a loud “pop” just as it reaches cooking pressure - like in the bad old days when pressure cookers were feared as steam bombs. And it’s depressing to fill a really large cooker with food, only to find out that its lid-locking valve won’t rise and close to let the cooking start. My impulse was to toss the contraption out (since

Using a pressure cooker always proved great results. Such a unit would tenderize meat, intensify flavors and quicken the cook cycle. However, it was suited for only one thing and that was pressure cooking.
Welcome to the technology age and the maturity of such a unit. First off, this modernized unit affords multiple safeties including pressure, computer monitored temp, built in relief safety and of course the last resort, the plug.
In addition to a modernized unit, it’s not suited for just one purpose of pressure cooking but also a steamer, crock pot replacement and

From the day I ordered this thing I kept getting a 5 error. Chefman never responded to my e-mails. Now I'm getting the same error and no response again from Chefman. I loved this product but am disappointed that I only got to use it 4 times and now it won't work
The Chefman multicooker is really great. Bought this at the Amazon Flash Sale price. So far I have made two pot roasts and brown rice both times. My first pot roast I slow cooked for 4 hours from frozen and it came out great. Second time tried a roast with veggies and cooked it for 8 hours and that worked great too. Please read the cheat sheet that comes in the box. If you read the cheat sheet, you don't cook Brown Rice using the "Rice" setting, You have to

Once I got over my initial trepidation, I tried my ultimate desire for this product: frozen to cooked. I never remember to thaw stuff out because I’m not a meal-planner. I’m a last minute cooker. So I dumped in frozen chicken breasts, salt & peppered them, poured in some salsa & chicken broth, and in 20 minutes had tasty and really moist shredded
