Farberware 7 in 1 Overview

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.

My Review

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.

I bought a Faberware 7 in 1 instant pot on black Friday from Walmart. I cooked a turkey tenderloin and it tasted tender and good. Next I tried broccoli, going by suggestions from folks on line to steam and set time for 0 minutes. My problem is the valve never popped up to let me know pressure was attained. After 15 minutes of waiting, I turned it off and have mushy broccoli, gonna have to dump it. Am I doing something wrong? Shouldn’t the valve pop up and you be able to tell if processing? I have used stove top pressure cookers all of my life, so I know when it gets on “rock and roll”! This unit is too quite. Think I’m returning, not happy and not sacrificing more food. Thanks

Just got the FW 7-1 pressure cooker, put a 3-4lb roast, can of musroom soup in and set on 9, Problem is it never steamed up enough to seal but a little steam was coming out, brand new unit so, i washed then used. I have now cooked this roast 3 times and now 4th. Last 2 times i made the seal pop up to steam cook it, but opened and looked at it with a fork and its still tough in the middle. What am i doing wrong. Got mad went out and bought Chicken Express so family could eat today. I would think in order tohave steam u need more ofa liquid such as water. Arguing with my wife about this. Soup is thick. She added milk . She said it still should cook it, yep, maybe as a slow cooker ! Lol

    Elizabeth says January 11, 2017

    Yikes! I would definitely contact the manufacturer.

    Steve Bisch says January 18, 2017

    The FW-09 setting is for browning meat only. After browning meat, turn unit off and twist the pressure knob on top to close; then set to setting 05 for steak/meat and 06 for chicken and then push start.

    You cannot use a can of mushroom soup to act as a liquid to produce steam. Pressurized STEAM is how the pressure cooker cooks food. Next time, use 1.5 cups of WATER. You should brown the roast first, set aside, use the water to deglaze the bottom of the pot, add the rack (upright or upside down), add the roast, put the can of mushroom soup on top of the roast (DO NOT STIR it into the water), select P05 and change the time to 90 minutes. When it is finished cooking, you can stir it and leave it open and select P09 to let excess moisture boil off, but you must keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn the sauce. Hope this helps.

Loved this product so much I bought one for my beach house! Healthy food in rapid cook time!

Does the Farber 7 in 1 digital pc utilize high and low pressure settings? If so, which menu options use high and which use low?

    Jdode says February 14, 2017

    No hi/lo pressure settings. Just high pressure. It does have high and low TEMP settings. The P01 is SLOW COOK and is a low temp setting; no pressure involved. The P09 is for searing and is an high temp setting with a time that is preset and unchangeable. P09 only works with lid off on some early models.

Kathy Herd says January 22, 2017

my cooker had NO INSTRUCTION MANUAL included , although it says it does on the outside of carton please tell me how to find a booklet on line so I may begin using today.

    Jdode says February 14, 2017

    Good luck with finding a manual. However, you can get lots of help from other users by going to the Farberware 7 in 1 Facebook page.

Teresa Richards says March 7, 2017

I bought a 7 in 1 programmable pressure cooker and there was no instruction manual. Where can I get one?

Marcella says April 4, 2017

The pressure cooker comes with a rack. Do I use that inside the pressure cooker or not?
