Crafting delicious and nutritious meals becomes simple with the Farberware 7 In 1 Programmable Pressure Cooker (see best price). This small, but powerful, appliances harnesses the power of steam to cook and brown foods quickly. The steam also helps to seal in the moisture and flavor of the food. This particular model offers low and high temperature settings, as well as a “warm” setting – making it simple to prepare your favorite foods.
This Farberware model was designed with safety in mind. It includes a self-locking lid, which forms a tight seal around the rim of the pot. There is also a pressure release valve, which will automatically release steam as required, or it will allow you to release steam manually. The oversized carrying handles make it simple to carry the pot around without having to worry about accidentally burning yourself.
One of the standout features of this pressure cooker is that it is crafted from premium stainless steel to ensure its durability. There are 9 preset cooking functions to streamline and simplify the cooking process, and the oversized LED display is simple to read – even in the dark. Also noteworthy is the fact that the cooking pot is dishwasher safe, which makes cleanup a breeze. The cooking pot does have a nonstick coating.
Reviewers seem divided on how to feel about the Farberware 7 In 1 Programmable Pressure Cooker. Either you love it, or you hate it. There is no in between.
Upon opening the unit, I have to say that it does create a striking first impression. It has a sleek, modern design and stands about 13 inches tall. It weighs a little over 12 pounds, which is lighter than most other comparable models, so it’s nice to be able to move it around without too much of a struggle.
I do like the fact that this all-in-one appliance can be used for multiple things. Not only can it be used as a pressure cooker, but also as a slow cooker and a steamer. It would have been nice if the user’s manual had come with some recipe suggestions, but it’s not necessary. Many consumers have struggled with a lack of information in the user’s manual, and figuring out how to use it as a slow cooker is often a matter of trial and error. It was nice to see that the unit does come with a stainless steel steaming rack, so that is one less accessory that must be purchased.
The Farberware 7 In 1 Programmable Pressure Cooker does its job well, but it does have its quirks. For example, the 9 preset functions are handy, but I wish it would tell you what the pressure settings are for each just in case you wanted to cook something that is not listed in the owner’s manual. A lot of my recipes require cooking with low pressure, but it’s difficult to figure out which preset functions correspond to low pressure. Because of this, cooking with this Farberware model can be a bit of a guessing game. For that reason, I wouldn’t recommend this model to anyone who has never used a pressure cooker/slow cooker before.
With all of that being said, it produces delicious food. After getting home from the office or corralling the kids, the last thing you want to do is spend hours slaving over a hot oven to prepare dinner. Overall, your diet will be healthier when you cook with this appliance.
If you want to follow a healthy diet, but find it difficult to do with all of the demands on your time, the Farberware Pressure Cooker will put you on the right path. It has an affordable price point, which is great for those who don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a higher end model. It only has one pot that needs to be cleaned, and your food will be ready in a matter of minutes. What more could you ask for?
