Intelligent Technology

Power Pressure Cooker XL apparently promises to be the best cooking device one can have because it is designed with a technology that can deliver delicious and quick meals every time. The secret behind its functioning is the flavor infusion technology which uses the high pressure lid along with the container to create a super heated steam inside the pot. This steam starts acting on the liquid and moisture to cook the food and at the same time lock all the flavors and nutrients inside it. Plus Power Pressure Cooker XL states that it features one-touch buttons dedicated to individual food types for easy cooking and has 6-quart capacity. It also has a keep warm function for keeping the meal ready for later. Power Pressure Cooker XL also claims that its cooking pot is dishwasher safe for a quick clean.

Advantages of Cooking with Power Pressure Cooker XL

Cook Meals Quickly

Cooking food with the Power Pressure Cooker XL is fast and easy because pressure cooking requires less water and energy as compared to conventional boiling, steaming or oven cooking. This means that the food reaches its cooking temperature faster.

Unlike conventional cooking methods that require more liquid than necessary to cook food the Power Pressure Cooker XL uses much less liquid thereby cooking food faster.

 

Preserves Nutrients

The Power Pressure Cooker XL needs a minimum quantity of water or liquid to ensure the steam is sufficient. This ensures the vitamins and minerals are not leached (dissolved) away by water. Whereas boiling food in large amounts of water takes away the vitamins and minerals. Due to the shorter cooking time, vitamins are preserved relatively well during pressure cooking.

Versatile

Variety of food can be cooked together in the Power Pressure Cooker XL for the same amount of time as it comes with steamer baskets to allow more foods to be cooked together inside the pressure cooker. You can also use it to sterilize jam pots, glass baby bottles, or for water while camping. As the food is cooked at a temperature above the normal boiling point of water it kills most micro-organisms.

 




Great for High Altitudes

The Power Pressure Cooker XL speeds up cooking considerably at high altitudes, where the lower atmospheric pressure reduces the boiling point of water. Lower water temperature reduces water’s effectiveness for cooking or preparing hot drinks. The increased temperatures due to pressure cooking are also used to promote the Maillard reaction to develop more desirable flavor profiles that would not be obtainable using temperatures typical of boiling. The flavors are more concentrated in the higher temperature and sealed environment of the pressure cooker requiring much less seasoning.

Disadvantages of Cooking with Power Pressure Cooker XL

Expensive:

As compared to conventional saucepans of the same size, the Power Pressure Cooker XL is considerably more expensive.

 

Additional Care

Power Pressure Cooker XL requires additional care than standard saucepans. The food debris needs to be cleaned from the additional gasket after every use, which can be time consuming.

 

Faulty Gasket:

The pan may last long however the gasket/sealing ring needs to be replaced once a year or sooner if it’s damaged. You may face problems in closing the lid if the gasket is too dry. Applying a little vegetable oil may be a solution but if you use too much oil the gasket will swell and prevent it from sealing properly.

 

Time Consuming:

To check whether the food is cooked the Power Pressure Cooker XL needs to be opened. This slows down the cooking process whereas with the conventional saucepan you can simply inspect the food visually. This means that accurate timing is necessary for the recipe e.g. with an audible timer.

 




Heavy Lid:

Cooking with the Power Pressure Cooker XL is not easy as it is very heavy. This makes it unsuitable for applications in which saving weight is a priority, such as camping. For this purpose you can use small, lightweight pressure cookers.

 

Maintaining Pressure:

According to manufacturer’s instruction manual a minimum quantity of liquid is required to create and maintain pressure. This means more liquid is required for longer cooking times making it undesirable for food requiring much less liquid, but recipes and books for pressure cookers take this into account.

    • Paulene says:

      Ok folks….you get it, this is a PLANTED REVIEW by the company, ignore it and scroll down to read the real testimonials.

  2. Carol T. says:

    They do a total bait and switch–while the TV infomercial states “Power Pressure Cooker XL,” the website clearly wants customers to purchase a smaller “Pro-Chef” version for 10 dollars more. After several NO answers, they even take the extra 10 off, and then state the one you want is out of stock. Goodluck. I will buy a Cuisinart.

  3. Janet says:

    Has anyone tried to cook only one chicken instead of the two. Too much food for 2 people.

  4. Constance Saunders says:

    This a scam. They will upgrade you to pressure cooker pro and it the same pressure cooker at Walmart for half the price. I paid $159 with shopping. Walmart has the same one for $79. Get it from Walmart.

  5. tracy says:

    I got mine from Walmart 80 dollars it’s stI’ll in the box I’m going to use it this weekend

  6. Saundra says:

    So far, this IS a great product, the only problem I had was UPS (brown) left my package just sitting by the front door, without ringing my doorbell to see if anyone was at home to receive it (this wasn’t the delivery date) or leaving a delivery slip saying they had been there at all, (I live on the second floor) anybody could have came by and took the package. Shame on you UPS. Otherwise, I have NOT had any problems. I was given a number, if I did have any problems: 973.287.5159

  7. Walter Taylor says:

    I had it about a month . Was using it for about the third time and something malfunction the wire connection caught on fire almost cause a major fire in my kitchen. Tried to contact customer service. That’s was a complete waste of time, called three times and once I said “I have a complaint and tried to tell them” Can not HEAR you really!! DO not buy this BEWARE.

  8. troy lewis says:

    How do you know how much water to use, does it come with a cook book wit meals instructions.

    • Saundra says:

      Hi Troy, YES it does come with a cookbook. But, with any item purchased such as these, some of the recipes ARE sometimes, INACCURATE! I wondered the same thing the first time using it following the recipe guide.

  9. GC says:

    BEWARE! Power Pressure Cooker is A TOTAL FRAUD. I try to order by using my Credit Card. They took my money from my account and then displayed online “Please use another Credit Card”. I checked with my bank and found that they took the money. I called the Power pressure cooker company many times and they asked me to fax the details. But, nobody responded. THIS IS AN UNBELIEVABLE FRAUD. Currently, I have filed dispute with Power pressure cooker through my bank.

    • Coop says:

      I bought mine thru bed bath and beyond ! I got it for $83.19 total
      Price and it was at my door in 1 1/2 days! I’m a happy camper

    • Connie says:

      This is my third one, I purchased one for myself and one for my daughter and daughter in law, I have not had the “fraud” issues as stated above for any of them. I was also able to receive all of mine with 25% off and free shipping.

  10. Diane Hockens says:

    I ordered four of these pressure cookers over two and one half months ago. Paid up front in full. I have yet to see any of my purchase or received any information about my order. I am considering contacting my credit card company and reporting it as a fraudulent purchase . I am already unsatisfied customer. A co worker ordered one on line at a local department store and received it in two days…. I want my money back.

  11. desiree says:

    So Glad I checked this review section. To everyone who ordered this product and got runaround instead report them to the Better Business Bureau it is easy to do and to DO follow up and track these kinds of complaints…..

  12. Dave says:

    I bought at bed bath and beyond. Have mad chili, jambalaya, ribs. Love it. Anyone know if there is a book with more recipes? My book has maybe 20 or 30 recipes, it’s thin. Is there a bigger one? Or anyone have any recipes (and instructions) to share? Thanks. Cook on!!!

  13. Bill Albers says:

    Great product. Save yourself a bunch of hassle and $$$, order from the Bed Bath and Beyond website. Free shipping; save yourself the ridiculous 30 bucks the infomercial charges for S/H. Works as advertised!

  14. Shirley Shafer says:

    I ordered by phone this evening. I need to cancel the entire order. Please let me know how to get this done. My email address is: shirleyshafer2001gp@yahoo.com

  15. Patricia says:

    I got one of the ones at Wal Mart it worked wonderful is easy to use and easy clean. I’m not going to wait for weeks when you have to run your order down. The Power Pressure Cooker was $79.00 the only problem I had was I drop the inside pot while it was hot and it bent and I couldn’t it get it to reshape but I like the way it cooked so well I got another one, lesson learn but other then that I plan to get one for my daughter. Everything that I have cooked everyone has loved so I am happy with it.

    • Sophie says:

      You are a liar….shut up and stop scamming people. This is a scam!!! they make it sound like it is some miracle product which it is not. Just go to CVS, Walmart, Amazon and search for , they have dozens of them and branded.

    • Coop says:

      I just bought my pressure cooker from bed bath and beyond ! I have not used it yet but it took only 1 1/2 days and it was at my door! Soo highly recommand buying your unit thru them than thru the tv program! Plus I got a coupon too and it cut my bill down ! I paid only $83.19 for it all ! That is it dropped off at my door in 1 1/2 days from the time I bought it!

    • John C says:

      I’ve had a great experience with mine also. Got an online offer for $79 plus free shipping. I was also upgraded to the Pro for free when I ordered. Arrived in 8 days, and has been fun to cook with. It’s easy to clean up, too.

  16. Lou says:

    Yes, Walmart sells the same pressure cooker. SHOPPER, Richard and Sondra is right. On the last page of the owner’s manual has the name of the manufacturer. Guess who? Tristar products. Selling for $79.80 online. LOL

  17. biznitch says:

    Thank everyone for the warring I was about to order and make the one payment. That would have been a waste of money and time. That’s for the heads up…

  18. Greg says:

    I thought I was ordering the product in three monthly payments. When I checked my account they billed me the entire cost and $20.95 processing fee instead of the $19.95. I got sucked in but never again. Product tracked at FedEx supposed to be here by tuesday july 15, 2015.

  19. carol wampnar says:

    tried to order the pressure cooker today and wanted to do the 3 pmt plan,all i could get was offers of more items by the end i was so disallusioned about the product i didnt want it any more..I WANT TO CANCEL AND CANT EVEN GET A PHONE# TO CALL>>>i do not want this anymore…!CANCEL!

    • Thinkums says:

      I ordered, but first time order figures was higher than should have been. I called and thought all was right, wasn’t when I got confirmation. Long story short, I cancelled. Today I received a thank you for my order, cancelled again. This is the number to call 973-287-5159. TV adds say 3 payments. I added another cooker at 1/2 price and a blender. Total was incorrect. This is the way it worked out, I was going to pay all S&H up front, $49.95, S&H 49.95, anyway I was paying $186.?? with 2 more payments of $36.??, not three equal payments.
      Hope this number helps.

    • Patricia buxton says:

      Eric Theiss who is demonstrating this pressure cooker can be reached on Facebook. I believe he has a Twitter.account too. I don’t know if he is aware of all these issues. I am sure he will help you.

  20. SMTWZ says:

    Today June 25, 2014, ordered XL Pro on April 26th 2014. After 8 weeks of runaround, Was on back order, which I never found out until 6 weeks after placing order. Then they kept saying next week, next week! Shouldn’t have to keep waiting this long! Very very poor customer service and bad company.

  21. DAVID KELLEY says:

    Today June 12, 2014, ordered xl pro on April 28th 2014. After 6 weeks of runaround, i cancelled yesterday! Was on backorder, which i never found out until 3 weeks after placing order. Then they kept saying next week, next week! Shouldn’t have to keep waiting this long! Very very poor customer service! Emailed them eight (8) times. No response!! They won’t get my business, now or in the future!!!

    • not happy says:

      Me too have had the same problem. Placed order on April 27, today June 19 have yet to receive it. Going to cancel!!! Why advertise something and say order now, when it is not available???

      • nikki says:

        Many infomercials do this for the money to fulfill their order because they don’t have enough fund to do so.

    • Becky says:

      Yea I had the same problem too, its been almost 2 months now (April 5) and nothing. I ve called and get the answer “sorry its been on back order and will just take another week”…well its been two weeks now. I called again and get the same crap and from the same call center in India from people you can barely understand and the background noise is awful and I totally agree with other reviews why they trying to sell something you are not able to supply. WTH I haven’t gotten it yet so I dont know weather its any good or not but I must say I wouldn’t have spent the money on it, knowing what I know now heck I spent extra to get it faster. I better be getting that refunded too when I cancel cause it doesn’t seem to be coming.

  22. Richard says:

    This product is available online at Walmart and it is $79.95 with free delivery in 5 to 7 days.

    • Shopper says:

      The item on Walmart is not the same as the Power pressure Cooker XL

      • Richard Smith says:

        Shopper….you better look again, the top article in the Walmart category of “pressure cookers” is EXACTLY THE SAME.

        • Sondra says:

          They DO have the exact same thing at walmart.com

          • judy says:

            So happy I read all of this above, guess I’ll not be ordering this, I’ll go to Bed Bath & Beyond in the morning & I’ll also check out Walmart, so glad I found out first before I ordered one. thank you all above.

  23. Eric Payne says:

    So why doesn’t Eric Theiss, who does the infomercial, sell this on QVC , where he appears hawking other stuff?

    If you want an electric pressure cooker, go to qvc.com and search “electric pressure cookers.” They have many models, with capacities ranging from 4 to 8 quarts. In fact, most of them less expensive than this “XL” do-hickey, with the same features. The 6-quart Emeril by T-Fal pressure cooker (the $119 model, not the $98 model) is rated “best” by America’s Test Kitchen.

    • delbi says:

      It’s true there are many Pressure Cookers on QVC, and, depending on what features you’re looking for, one of those may suit your needs nicely. However, for others, that want to invest in a PC that not only pressure cooks, but also replaces other existing older appliances (slow cooker, rice cooker, canner) finding an electric PC meeting all these requirements isn’t that easy. Neither T-fal you referenced is suitable, as an example. The Power Pressure Cooker XL is.

  24. nick says:

    Ordered this Power Pressure Cooker XL for my wife. She uses smaller ones from Brazil.(most Brazilian’s use them daily)
    This one looked interesting. However, after a month now it has not arrived. When I check the status of my order from the Power Pressure cooker XL website it says “in process”. The message after says “please allow 2 to 3 weeks for delivery”. I called and the customer service line actually just hangs up after 30 seconds. I then called the promoter/production studio and they transferred me directly to the same hang-up number. Finally had to call to place another order to have someone check status. They say wait is actually 6 to 8 weeks for delivery…. starting to sound like a scam to me, I noticed that all the business numbers and production company are to NJ addresses. I should have guessed!!!! I am just certain that some guy who goes by “Vinny” or something spent my money on the tables in a casino within 24 hours! BE AWARE

  25. Joe says:

    Really? You both are resorting to name calling?
    Whether it works or not… name calling? Please.
    More than likely it is made in China as is most things these days.
    If stating that deserves being called an idiot or a jerk you are way too sensitive and need to get out more and experience life actually with people so that your social skills can get better.
    Is a lot of stuff made in China junk? Well… yes. Is this junk? Decide for yourself.
    Grow up kiddies.

    • Terri says:

      Yes I just received mine in great timming the only problem I have is they need to put up a blog for the people who has ordered it and more receipes and the other only thing is I wish the cook books had been as large as they looked when I ordered it I have cook the roast ,now I am cooking the whole chickens yum I really like it I just hope when I go to do more canning that I will like it as much lol.

          Debbie where did you get yours?

          • Ron R. says:

            Great question, alliecat.
            I, too, was captivated by the infomercial and I rarely buy stuff off the T.V.. Unfortunately, I gave in this time and have been experiencing the same frustrations as well as apparently being sucked in by one of Tri-star’s Online partners and trying to cancel that too. The good news is they have yet to get any money. Yet!!!

      • Jennifer Greer says:

        Yes! I used my pressure cooker twice and stopped working ! If I knew that came from China I never would have ordered it! I am waiting for a another one :(

    • gotmine says:

      Yes it works great for me but I wouldn’t order online, I got mine at walmart….

    • Judith says:

      I received mine late. I got messages when it would ship. Tried one or two recipes. Can’t begin to say how easy to use, food tastes great and time is fast depending on what you cook. A tip: when you set cooking time, it doesn’t start until gets up to pressure. Used to use non electric, this much better. Have not had any problems. I use time/food chart in booklet when using nonelectric recipes. All have turned out great. Sorry people having so many problems. For me it was worth the wait.
