I bought this to replace my old unit. The sauté feature was a plus and it works just as well as others I have owned in the past. The slow cooker or pressure cooker modes are a bonus too.
So far, more than happy and I would recommend.
Purchased at ALDI for $79.99.
Great Pressure Cooker
Purchased this Pressure cooker September 2012. It is still going strong except for digital read out starting to fail, I can still use it. I am wondering where I can get a replacement when it finally fails?
Purchased in September 2012 for $50.00.
Value for money! Works a treat!
I use it to cook:
- pork ribs, then grill it afterwards with a generous amount of smoky bbq sauce
- stewed pork belly or spare ribs
- lamb shanks
- osso bucco
you name it.. and tough meat is fall off the bone in around 40 minutes!
Purchased in January 2019.

Great Value For Money
Use this pressure cooker to cook Asian Pork Bone Soup, Red Bean Soup, Bak Kut Teh, Cook Rice, Chicken Porridge, Steam Frozen Buns, Steam vegetables, Thai Curry Chicken, Pork Leg Stew, Boiled eggs and many others. Very convenient multi-functional cooker, This new Ambiano 5.5 Litre electric pressure cooker cooks faster than the older Lumina Electric Pressure cooker that I bought in 2014 and still in good working condition. Testimony of the reliability of the Aldi electrical goods. The foods taste yummy when cooking with the pressure cooker. I alw...ays feel confident with Aldi electrical goods due to its reliability, convenient and 3-year warranty. The 10 preset cooking menu is very helpful when cooking. Love that features of normal pressure cooking that I can use for sautering and searing or even fried eggs. Cooking porridge is only 5 minutes. Awesome. I love Lumina and now the new Ambiano Electric Pressure Cooker. Been using the Lumina electric pressure in past 3 years. This pressure cooker has a permanent place on my kitchen area. I use pressure cooker almost every day to prepare foods for either breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every home should own one pressure cooker with its multi-functional advantages and save your kitchen-top footprint. User-friendly and easy to use. Foods are tastier and healthier too when cooking with the pressure cooker.
Some of them are good
The first one broke after using for a while, the second one still working. It was still within warranty, so the new unit was sent very promptly with no hassles. I was pleased with the customer service that was very helpful. The new pressure cooker was sent to my address, no need to go to the store.
Now living without my pressure cooker
Loved this product being my first pressure cooker since my Hawkins as I couldn't get parts or the I ring for it. It was Easy to use and now I can't get another. Aldi had them for a short period of time .For the price it was value for money
Ditched my rice cooker
Wow. cooks rice, beans everything so fast. Had to adjust how much liquid I'm use to using. Haven't tried a cake yet. But I do brown meat in it (have to move fast) before putting lid on. I had hiccups with steam gadget positioning at 1st. Called them (warrant tel in booklet) & got a lesson over the phone on how it to sit properly. I recommend 1st time you use 1/2 cup water no ingredient to figure out the steam release position. So easy to clean. You have to take seal off to clean, but it couldn't be easier. Watch the little seal doesn't pop off from around steam nozzle. It's sure hard to find on the floor!
Love this cooker, use it all the time
I previously had a stove top pressure cooker, and thought I would upgrade to an electric model, I happened to see them in Aldi, and bought one. I couldn't be more happy with it, I use it regularly to make a variety of things,and have never had a problem, I even take it away with me when we go caravanning.
Aldi Pressure cooker
Current Aldi pressure cooker is excellent too.
Clear and concise instruction written in proper English by someone who can cook and has used the cooker,!
Cooking time adjustable from 1 to 120 minutes and power is adjustable too so it will do everything you need...
Great value for money too!.
My favourite kitchen gadget
We bought ours and sold the expensive, Italian, 12 litre, stovetop model. The Aldi model is more suitable size, plenty of optional settings and a fairly rapid method of releasing pressure. The stove top model required we run cold water over the lid for 5 mins to bring down the pressure and we couldn't cook legumes which would clog up the pressure mechanism. Those limitations do not apply on the Aldi model. The Aldi model lasted 4 years of being used approx 3-4 times a week. I am replacing it with a similar model.
Customer service?? None!!
I purchased this unit excited to learn to use a pressure cooker. I am a chef and wanted to see what the buzz was.... Got a great deal from Harris Scarfe and chose the unit. First time no steam, reset after 50 mins unit appeared to be working and a silverside tough not what I would say terrific. Decided to try a cake banana cake ... Set as per unit requirements 30 mins later no steam release, Tried again cooked this time.... By this stage disappointed!! So I know there is an issue... Try customer service, choose product information to see if the...re is assistance (doing something wrong?) well sat on line for half an hour no answer.... Decide to call back "warranty issue" 20 mins later finally chose the "leave a message" option and left a message for Deliah. 8 hours later no call, no care, no concern what a pity! Will get my money back and never purchase this brand again, nor will I purchase a Bellini product as this is the same "customer service" line......
Extremely useful kitchen appliance
I love this pressure cooker and it really is multifunctional. I've used it as a slow cooker, a pressure cooker and as a rice cooker (perfect rice, first time!). Everything I've cooked has been a great success! I haven't used it as a steamer yet though. I had never used a pressure cooker before but the directions were very easy. If this comes on sale again, several of my friends now want to buy one.
This is perfect. I can't live without it!
This utensil takes the place of at least four different types of cooking. My biggest fear is that it will wear out and I'll be bereft. It is so versatile I use it for soups, casseroles, slow cooking and fast cooking. I'm just waiting for Aldi to bring them back and I'm buying a spare. My only gripe is I found the instruction book initially difficult to follow. I can recommend this highly
We bought this last year and has worked perfectly all that time. The settings are good and it can brown meat before the lid goes on. We looked at more expensive ones but this one had the same features.
