Under pressure for use No you have to work it out

1 year of use no drama so far I don't follow Manuel I wing it. You must wash the inner pot by hand dish washer will make it peel. Use the taste button for longer time for stews meat on high. I have made fried rice risotto all good I don't recommend plain rice though I use a ceramic pot in microwave with lid works great for any rice. Show details

No spare parts

If you purchase a pressure cooker from Kmart, you should expect that they will discontinue the model so you won’t be able to source lid seal rings or inner bowls in the future. They do not provide access to these items when a model is discontinued or tell you where you might be able to find them with another manufacturer. You are simply buying future landfill items! Show details

Wouldn't recommend anyone to buy

Good bits first:
* It cooks my meat fine. You press one button and an hour later, soft meat comes out.

Now for the bad:
* Does not work well as a basic pressure cooker.
* There are 12 preset menus. Only those can be used. Can not cook for manual duration or adjust cooking duration in any way. Having only one preset for selecting manual cooking duration would have made the product more useful than having 12.
* User manual has errors. It refers to "cooking pressure" as "cooking duration".
* User manual is not very helpful. Product interaction design is bad. Took me a while to figure out how to use it. Show details

Improvement Over Previous Model. But the manual still sucksssssssss

This pressure cooker is a definitive improvement over the previous model. As it now includes the sorely missed Sauté option. However, as usual, the manual is appalling lol. I have no idea how to manually adjust and set times for Stews for example. The manual advises to “use the Taste key” to adjust duration = Low, Medium or High….wth does that even mean lol. High duration? and no timer pops up on the screen until about 5-10 minutes later? Surely there is a manual way to set cooking times without using absurd non-specific “Low, Medium or High” options. Please if someone figures it out let me know lol

5 stars if it had a manual that actually helps. A pressure cooker is pointless if no one knows how to use it.  Show details
