It’s three gadgets in one: a pressure cooker, a rice cooker, and a crockpot.
It cooks beans, rice, and braised meat consistently and faster. No more chalky beans or underdone meat. Most beans cook fine without presoaking.
It’s a lot easier to use than a regular pressure cooker since you don’t have to wait around for it to come up to pressure or to turn it off when it’s done.
My only compliant about it so far is the way it automatically goes into stay-warm mode at the end of whatever cycle you’re using.
I don’t think a sophisticated cook would get all worked up about it and cook everything with it like some people do. I’m not particularly partial to that brand, either, supposedly some of the competitors are as good or better.
