Crock Pot Express Multi Pressure Cooker Performance:
When it comes to the performance of the Crock Pot Express Multi Pressure cooker, it is just perfect. It can work just well in fast cooking and also in slow cooking. You will be able to cook a variety of dishes in the cooker and it does not disappoint you.
One thing that you will fall in love with this pressure cooker when compared to the other models available in the market is its timing. Yes, you will be able to cook very fast.
You will have to make sure that you are adding enough water for perfect cooking. If the recipe that you are making required very little water, then you should avoid making it in the pressure cooker because there are chances of burning the food or you may end up with undercooked food.
Crock Pot Express Multi Pressure Cooker Features:
When it comes to the features of the Crock Pot Express Multi Pressure cooker, it has many interesting features. The first thing that you will love is the non-stick cooking pot. It comes with a perfect non-stick coating. But it is always safe to use a wooden spatula for cooking, removing food from the pot so that the coating will last for a long time.
You will be able to find one common feature in a pressure cooker when you first look at them like 14-in-1 or 10-in-1 cooking options. Even this pressure cooker comes with such a feature and this is an 8-in-1 pressure cooker. If you are wondering what are those features, then just look at the front control panel of the pressure cooker. The buttons or the cooking options provided to you are the 8-in-1 features.
The delay timer feature of this pressure cooker is one of the best features. If you have set up everything and want it to start after a few hours, then you can delay the start time up to four hours. While you are busy with other stuff in the house, it will automatically start after the special time and your meal will be ready by the time you wanted it to be. You may forget about it, but it won’t. In the same way, you also have a keep warm feature as well. Even this will keep your cooked food warm for at least four hours.
It does not make a lot of noise like many other pressure cookers available in the present market. You will hear a slight beep sound when you press any button. But the whistle sound is too low that there is a chance of missing the beep if you are not nearby.
Crock Pot Express Multi Pressure Cooker Accessories:
When you look at the accessories provided by the Crock Pot Express Multi Pressure cooker, you get almost the same accessories that you get with other pressure cookers. You get one steaming rack, one plastic paddle, and a condensation catcher.
The steam rack comes with too short legs that you will not be able to place stuff on the rack, without getting in contact with the food beneath it. The rack does not come with handles so that you can lift the rack easily.
You will receive a recipe book that helps you in making some delicious food in the pressure cooker.
