love this one
Love this one! it saves me a lot of time on cooking especially for meat and soup. Have heard some terrible stories about pressure cooker this one is very safe and easy to use. I can cook meat within 15 minutes until it becomes very tender but it a bit heavy.
I love this appliance!
After being freaked out by my old pressure cooker for some time, I saw the induction pressure cooker being demonstrated by JackieM of JackieMFood.com and was impressed enough to order one from PHA. I was very taken with the voice assistant! My pressure cooker arrived within a few days and I tried my first meal using the basic methods outlined in the PDF recipe book to make a quick chicken curry. I used Jackie's Kapitan curry paste - half a packet to 500gm chicken thigh meat and 270gm coconut cream. I also used some Brussels sprouts to make a mo...re complete one pot meal. I fried the paste in a little oil on the deep fry setting until it became fragrant, then added the chicken and coconut cream. I set it to braise and stopped it after 20 minutes. The I added my Brussels sprouts ( peeled, halved and brown in oil) and continued the braise for 10 more minutes. It worked perfectly! The recipes are a good guide to using several functions in one dish and can be easily converted to your own recipes. The clean up was so quick and easy. I love this appliance and am using it a lot!
Excellent addition to kitchen!
I started using this when a friend bought it for me as a house warming gift and it's great. So far have made soup and beef cheeks which my husband loves! What I would love to see is a recipe app so it's easier to know what to cook in it.

Love this machine
i wasnt sure about electric pressure cookers but i went ahead and bought this as i needed a new slow cooker and i am glad i did!! i waited to purchase the machine and it was well worth the wait. the only down side is it would of been handy to have a recipe book sent with it.
This is a great pressure cooker
I purchased the Optimum Induction Pressure-Cook Pro for my son as a Christmas present. After many visits to local stores, I just couldn't decide because none had exactly what I was looking for. The Optimum Induction Pressure-Cook Pro had all the things that I wanted in a pressure cooker, and if I liked it my son would too. Well, as it turned out - he loves it! Everything from the lid to the controls being on the top, just great. (not having to lean over to look at the dial and controls is a plus) This machine does it all. I purchased the re...d one, looks amazing. All I have to do now is buy myself one, can't wait for that either, hope the price doesn't change anytime soon. I recommend this to myself :) P.s The recipes that come with it are pretty good too. Being on a low carb diet, I found it interesting to see some nice recipes that can be adapted.
- Verified purchase
I reviewed many cookers before deciding on the Optimum Induction Pressure-Cook Pro. It looks good and I'm very happy with the price. Haven't used it enough to offer an opinion on the performance, but so far, so good. To include a recipe book with the cooker would complete the package.

Hi I want to roast a whole chicken but the booklet tells you not to use without liquid in it how do I roast a chicken then?
you can add some oil.
Here are example instructions for roasting chicken:
In a small bowl, combine paprika, thyme, salt, and pepper. Rub seasoning over outside of the chicken
Heat oil in the pressure cooker to shimmering. Add chicken, breast side down, and cook 6-7 minutes.
Flip the chicken and add broth, lemon juice and garlic cloves.
Lock pressure cooker lid and set for 25 minutes on high.
Let the pressure cooker release naturally.
Remove from pressure cooker and let stand for 5 minutes before carving.

Hope that helps!
Thank you but what setting do I put it on ? And what do you use DIY setting for?
Hello Liz, see manual page 8.
MENU 2 for Meats default cooking time for this program is 35min, max time is 2hrs and minimum time is 15mins. ( cooking time can be adjusted for all functions)
So I would first use the minimum setting of 15min, then flip the chicken and add broth, lemon juice and garlic cloves and set for 25-35min on the meat program.
DIY means you can set more settings for yourself
Hope that helps :)
