The new Cuisinart update is totally a classic. Their brushed stainless pressure cooker is safe, easy to use, cooks up to 70% faster than conventional methods and cooks healthier, too. Steam trapped in the pot builds up pressure that creates hotter temperatures, and the pot is so tightly sealed that vitamins and minerals can’t boil away. Foods stay moist and flavors stay true.
Features variable pressure and temperature setting, plus Browning, Simmer and Saute functions for perfect roasts, stews, vegetables, cheesecake or custard. The Cuisinart cpc-600 1000-watt 6-quart electric pressure cooker is absolutely safe, with a lid that has to be locked in place before pressure builds, and stays locked until pressure is released. Cook faster, eat healthier, with Cuisinart electric pressure cooker.
This review is for: Cuisinart cpc-600 1000-watt 6-quart electric pressure cooker, brushed stainless and matte black (Kitchen): I’ve never used a pressure cooker before, and I was so excited to get my Cuisinart cpc-600 pressure cooker. At first it worked just great and I was delighted to turn out wonderful stews in 20 minutes and even meatloaf in 25 minutes.
But after about a week it stopped coming up to pressure and steam poured out of the red float valve. After reading another reviewer’s comments, I started tapping on the red float through the plastic cover and jarred it loose; at that point it would rise and seal the unit so it would come up to pressure. Kind of a pain that I have to do that each time. Except for that detail, it has worked very well.
Another reviewer asked what PSI the unit works at. Very odd that they do not include this info in their user manual or web site since you need the info to adjust cooking times when using other pressure cookers’ recipes, but I emailed their tech support to ask and received this answer:
First, i was a pressure cooker nut from before. I used my mother’s 1930/40’s Presto’s until I couldn’t get seals for them. When I saw this digital pressure cooker I bought it instantly. I loved it so much that I gave one to my daughter, my sis and my sis-in-law, (we’re all foodies). I was cooking stuff I hadn’t made in years. We ate like kings. All of a sudden, i get online and search and right there on Amazon, Bobby Mac “Micronaut101” describes my very own problem. So no more trying to make the bloody thing work.
I call the Cuisinart 800 number prepared to go the distance according to the reviews I’ve read and I describe my problem, how much I love the machine, how I’ve seen the problem reported on Amazon and therefore it’s a known quality issue and I want a new machine. OK, she says, what’s your address? No “did you send in a warranty” or anything else. Bingo, 7 – 10 days I’ll have a new pressure cooker. Yes, within 7 days i got my new Cuisinart cpc-600 1000-watt 6-quart electric pressure cooker. Now, i cannot do without it. What an excellent purchase.
