Cuisinart CPC-600 Review

Best Features

  • Trivet: just having somewhere safe and stable to put the Cuisinart CPC-600 makes using it that much easier.
  • Dishwasher Safe Cooking Pot: I can get the kids to help out with the dishes at home (plus, thanks to the cool-touch handles I don’t have to watch them while they do it).
  • Push button controls: the simplicity and intuitiveness required to use this machine is something that I’m  thankful for. There’s no navigating around endless menus and buttons, yet the controls available give me enough control to cook my old favorite meals.
  • New and Improved Packaging: it might seem like nothing but I couldn’t use a lot of cookers I’ve bought online before that didn’t work purely because they were broken in transit.

Cuisinart CPC-600 Product Overview

The Cuisinart CPC-600 6-Quart Electric Pressure Cooker is a necessary kitchen aid for anyone that wants to eat healthily without all the hassle of waiting around for hours for the slow cook to finish.  Typically priced at around $100 (see lowest price) this canner offers very good value for the money.

​The Cuisinart pressure cooker reduces the time you stand around waiting for your food by up to 70% but still provides you with a healthy balanced meal daily. The easy-to-read display means that it is very easy for you to program and make use of the precision thermostat that enables you to get exactly the results you want from the electric pressure cooker time after time.

​The pressure cooker isn’t the only setting that this appliance has the capability of, however. The Cuisinart CPC-600 can also brown (to keep your meat moist), simmer (so as not to impair the flavour of your meals), sauté (thinly sliced veggies such as carrots – but don’t worry the cooking pot is non-stick) and even keep your food warm until the ideal moment for you to have it ready by.

​The timer included allows you to ensure that you always hear when your food is ready, leaving you to serve and consume it while it’s in its best possible state and at the highest quality – nutritional value, temperature and flavor.

​The CPC-600’s cool touch handles mean that you no longer have to worry about fumbling around with a tea-towel, hoping that it doesn’t slide from your hands and you’ll accidentally touch the scalding hot metal and burn yourself. This handy gadget is all about safe interactions in your household, built to North American Electrical Standards and with a dishwasher-safe cooking pot and trivet, allowing the children to help out, there’s no reason why a Cuisinart electric pressure cooker can’t have a spot in your own house.

My Cuisinart CPC-600 Review

​​Upon receiving theCuisinart CPC-600 I plugged it into the wall, put my soup inside and scrolled through the menu to my desired cooking function (simmer), pressed low pressure and the time (1 minute), pressed start and waited for it to be ready.

​When I heard the beep, I cautiously removed and tasted my broccoli soup. I shouldn’t have had any reservations; it was warming, tasted absolutely lovely and completely filled me until lunch (I’d really wanted to try my new CPC-600).

​I’ve found that not only does the Cuisinart pressure cooker cook in several different ways allowing it to be used for the majority of my favourite recipes, but it also drastically reduces the cooking time AND liquid used, so not only is it essentially four cooking appliances in one, it means that I don’t have to wait as long for my healthy dinner (which stops me snacking between meals) and the economic value of this machine is also fully realised through the quantity of the ingredients used and in my utility bills (water particularly). Since buying the Cuisinart CPC-600 I’ve had something different to look forward to every day, I’m still trying and enjoying different recipes.
