Yes, but not the best choice if you are doing hardcore canning. Look at the page: https://www.pressurecookerpros.com/best-pressure-canner-reviews/Reply
The only problem thus far, 2 yrs now, is the silver handle and lid have ‘bubbled up’, as if the pot has gotten too hot for the material used. Cooks great, but the asthectics are becoming ugly and are a great disappointment to me. The material should be able to withstand the heat from the high pressure or the manufacturer needs to use another material. I only use it about 4 times per year.Reply
Hi, Do you know anyone in the Chicago area who could give instant pot demos or programs?Reply
Can the simmer setting with out pressure be used as aslow cooker?Reply
This isn’t possible. You can either “simmer” OR cook at low pressure but you can’t do both at the same time.
scrolled through the menu to my desired cooking function (simmer), pressed low pressure and the time (1 minute)Reply
My pressure is 1 1/2 year old it carries a 3 year warranty and the manufacture wants to sell me new lid do $58.95 $12.95 shipping and handling when I can buy the whole unit for $79.99. I think that’s a no brainer. What good it’s the 3 years warranty for. Probably won’t buy it again.Reply
After 6 uses the non-stick surface has started peeling from the insert pot. any one else having this problem?Reply
There is one problem and that is removing the insert. The lip of the insert has less 1/4 inch between it and hte main body. If you wish to remove this, you need protection as it’s hot. It’s too narrow for gloves, even silicone. I can pry up one side with a wooden utensil, then grab that tiny lip with a gloved hand as I move the piece to the other side, and ask another person to grab that with a gloved hand. It’s awkward and can easily spill. There needs to be some way to grab that. I’ve had some close calls as you’re holding this heavy pot with only teeny lip…..and it’s over 212 degrees.
Oh, Cheryl….you could only fit 3 or 4 half pints in there…..not worth it.Reply
I love this pressure cooker!!! I had a power cooker (as seen on t.v.) it was useless. The “power cooker” did not pressurize. I love the cuisinart pressure cooker:)Reply
How big is it?? (Inches for each of 3 dimensions, please.) I’ve just returned an Instant Pot because it won’t fit any cabinet I have and takes too much counter space to leave it there. (I’m sure that many seniors who have downsized to a small kitchen will have the same question.)Reply
Hey Barbara – I no longer have the Cuisinart CPC-600 so I can’t measure it directly, but according to Amazon’s product page the dimensions are 12-1/5 by 12-1/5 by 13-1/5 inches. I know this is late, but hopefully can still help you or someone else!Reply
What are the dimensions of the cooking pot?
An ad says it’s 12-1/5 by 12-1/5 by 13-1/5 inches but did not say if this is the external casing.
I need to know ’cause I want to compare the size with my present cooker.
Will the mealthy crisplid work on this cpcs 600 pressure cooker?Reply
I’ve had an issue with two different CPC 600’s. When I make anything that has a primary pressure cook and a secondary that requires the additional time of say 2-3 minutes for added vegetables, I cannot get it to go to pressure even if I shut it off and unplug it for a couple of minutes. It gets to a point then beeps and goes to warm. Any ideas? Thanks!Reply
It stop once it builds up steam. It actually doesn’t change the settings(time) that I selected. It just stops once it gets hot.Reply
Can you use this pressure cooker for canning purposes?Reply
