Works as it is since last 8 years

Hi,
I have been using it around since 8 years, still works perfectly. Haven't faced any issues till now. Have very good capacity for a family meal (7L), although lesser than the 9L tefal but people had faced some other issues in it.
Cooker and steamer both work as expected. Use it twice/thrice a week.
I am looking to buy another one but it is now out of stock in House store. Show details

Never worked properly

Nine times out of ten, the valve would stick and I would have to wash it multiple times before it would work. I recommend that you stay away from this product. Show details

Problematic at best

I bought this 10 or more years ago and have tried many different types of recipes. Success has been elusive as things often stick even when following instructions and recipes to the letter. I think Baccarat pressure cookers have a fundamental design issue seeing how many poor reviews they get on productreview.com and seeing as how I've tried two different models in this brand and both have similar issues. One is the need for a lot of liquid in order for the food not to stick and the other is slowness to come to pressure. The price is way too high for such a poor performer. All in all I'd avoid this brand if you want an item that cooks food quickly and well. Show details

Used over 5 years and found a trick to make it seal

Over the years of using the easy twist, we found a little trick to make the seal working as it was always used to leak. We make sure to rub coconut oil around the seal before we start cooking and then it fixes the problem of leaking but it has to be done everytime you cook. Show details

Ditto to the other poor performance reviews

Ditto with all the comments previously about the poor performance of this cooker. Never comes to pressure. Also can't find any instructions anywhere for this particular model. Woeful. I've been told that Baccarat is a very poor brand, so that finishes me with this company.

Waste of money

I bought this cooker in September 2020 from house cannington. But when I used steam and water keep coming continuously from valve. I contact house customer care and house store they said nothing wrong with this so didn't replace or refund me back. Very disappointing with cooker, house cannington and customers service. This cooker is totally waste of money. Cooking in this cooker is waste of time as it take longer time to cook. Never going to buy bacarat products. Show details

Not a Pressure Cooker a Piece of Doggy Doo

The thing hisses, never get under pressure and boils off all liquid. Whoever owns this company is a criminal and a rip off artist. The worst piece of engineering for the kitchen in the modern world, will turn people off cooking under pressure for life...disaster. Do not buy ever. I bought two and neither works at all other than as a pot with no useful lid at 10 times the price of a regular pot. Show details

What did I do wrong?!

Have only used the cooker once or twice before and wasn't sure on previous occasions whether I was using it correctly because instruction book seemed vague. This time I turned the element off after I thought the meat was cooked. Left the cooker sitting on the stove to cool down off the heat. Approx 20 minutes later heard massive whooshing noise, raced in to see it boil over with liquid inside spewing out, under pressure, from under the still attached & sealed lid. Took lid off to find there was still liquid in it. Scary but nicest corned beef ever! Show details

Skip this if you want a reliable product

OK when new but won’t seal properly anymore. It hasn’t even had that much use so it’s now being used an expensive pan. Very disappointing given the initial cost of the product. Show details

Good for the first 10 uses

Was used once every few months. Got 10 or so uses out of it and top stopped sealing. I have to push it down until it builds up pressure which is dangerous with escaping steam. Stopped using it after burning too many meals. It's now just used as a very expensive saucepan. Absolute waste of time and money. Show details

Doesn't even seal - utterly worthless

No instructions in box...went back for instructions...didn't help.

The lid doesn't fit properly so it does't clamp the sealing ring to the base. Regardless of how the lid is aligned it simply won't build up any pressure unless you push down VERY hard on the lid. I'm a big guy and I struggled to hold the it down hard enough to build up pressure for more than a few seconds before it lifted the lid and let the steam escape.

Money would be better spent if you just burned it for heat.

Have just purchased Easy Twist and finding the instruction manual lacking some details. Does the Pressure Limiting valve need to be pointing to the steam icon or the dot icon when starting the cook?

The dot. The steam icon indicates pressure release.
