Nesco PC6-25P Review

The Nesco PC6-25P Pressure Cooker is a very reliable kitchen gadget with some great features that make it my personal choice when deciding just how I should make my meals (unless it’s something with ice-cream, I only ever seem to cook in the Nesco PC6-25P nowadays) day in, day out. With a pressure cooker that produces flawless results consistently it’s no wonder that I’ve recommended it to all of my friends.

The Nesco PC6-25P (see lowest price) is made from stainless steel, and so is easy to clean, leaks no toxins and heats up very quickly. This electric pressure cooker has a very sturdy base that prevents it from falling over when I use it on the worktop, allowing it to go with me whenever I leave the house for an extended duration. The Nesco NP6 is suitable for every kitchen and it’s this compatibility that leaves you with no choice when going on a self-catering holiday, really as long as you’ve got it under a good insurance policy you’d be wasting time and money NOT taking it, with the capacity for 6 quarts, or 5.7 litres, you can always make your dinner in the evening and then either heat what you didn’t eat up in the morning, or take the leftovers with you for your lunch the following day.

The Nesco PC6-25P is built with both safety and ease of use in mind, and can boast of a self-locking cool touch lid and pressure release valve (that can be set as either automatic or manual); and cool-touch handles, so you don’t have to worry about burning yourself and the machine is very easy to manoeuvre. But that’s not the only easy thing about the Nesco PC6-25P, it also comes with a clear to read LED display and soft touch buttons (pressure cook, slow cook, steam, brown and warm) to allow you simple and uncomplicated access to do whatever you need to make your dinner just the way you like it.

Our Nesco PC6-25P Review

As you may have gathered I’m quite a reluctant chef, well I used to be anyway, until I got the Nesco PC6-25P Electric Programmable Pressure Cooker. While it may not change my characteristics overnight, or at all, it’s perfectly adapted to suit my every need. I save time before, during AND after cooking – giving me more time to curl up with a good book.

The delayed start means that I can put my porridge in the Nesco PC6-25P at night and have it piping hot in the morning when I come down for breakfast, giving me a hearty and nutritious revitalising boost so that I’m ready to start my day. And instead of losing half of my food because it’s singed to the sides of the cooker, the non-stick surface means that it comes right off, saving me money and time later on with the scouring brush, which I don’t need either because the insert of the Nesco PC6-25P can just go straight into the dishwasher.

Even that doesn’t fully capture the full range of benefits offered to you by the Nesco PC6-25P, it comes with its own cooking rack and trivet, to keep separate flavours apart, a dishwasher safe and non-stick cooking insert – to save you time, a start that can be delayed for up to 8 hours, allowing you to do your food preparation earlier rather than later so your food is always ready when you are; and the Nesco PC6-25P can even cut your cooking time down by up to 70%. The last one I REALLY like!

Nesco PC6-25P Best Features

  • Cooking Rack, it may seem insignificant at first but if you ever have to cater for a fussy eater that really doesn’t like their food to touch and won’t eat their meal if it does, then this simple under-rated cooking rack will be a lifesaver for you.
  • LED Display, I don’t have to wonder what button I’ve just pressed and repeat the motions fifty or so times before I’m fully satisfied that the pressure cooker is going to do what I want it to.
  • 6-Quart Capacity, having such a large quantity of food means that I don’t have an excuse to eat out so I enjoy more healthy food on a much more regular basis than I would do without the Nesco PC6-25P.
  • It costs less than $100, and really, for a cooking rack, trivet, cool-touch handles and (self-locking) lid; non-stick and dishwasher safe insert, the Nesco PC6-25P is nothing short of a bargain in my opinion.

Nesco PC6-25P Pressure Cooker Conclusion

The 6 quart Nesco PC6-25P really has made me look forward to my meals again, with a dishwasher safe inside that makes doing the washing up faster, to the sturdy steel cast of the outside so I no longer worry that it’s going to tip over; spill my food everywhere and potentially crack something (although it never shook once).

And the pressure release valve of the Nesco PC6-25P makes me feel much more safe and comfortable with this electric pressure cooker than I ever did with the one my parents had when I was younger, I’m even almost ready to start manually operating the pressure valve manually now. I’m incredibly glad of what the Nesco PC6-25P has to offer and I think that if you were to invest in one you would see things in the same way that I do. So go on, give it a go – what are you waiting for?

Ken says December 26, 2015

We bought this pressure cooker (our first) in Jan 2012. It was reliable and did a good job. Unfortunately my wife dropped the pot insert so now I need to look for another Nesco PC6-25. The insert pot was dropped and of course that did it in as it was dented and out of shape. We paid about $70 back in 2012 at Wal Mart but now I see this item is much more than what we paid. I hope to find one at a better price than $92 or $100. I would recommend this pressure cooker from our experience.

Sherman Brown says April 4, 2016

We have a Nesco PC6-25 that we’ve been using for years now. It’s a great unit, easy to use, safe & according to what is stated, it will reach 16-psi which is recommended for canning. Thank you for your review.

AlexaD says October 2, 2017

I agree that this is an excellent pressure cooker; what mar the product is how hard it is to find a simple replacement stem relief valve…

Jennifer says October 9, 2017 has an 11 qt. on sale now.

Debra A Askew says November 11, 2019
