Not impressed

I should have bought a cheap $50 one, it would work better than this. Takes 2-3 hours to heat for slow cooking.. in other words, don't use chicken. You'll end up sick. Do not recommend this space wasting appliance. Show details

Good,but

Got this one form catch of the day,after my old tefal pressure cooker went dead.9 years of use anyway.Saw this model as the least expensive I can afford.This unit can do lots of different programs of cooking,but at the moment we only use it for pressure cooking beef and pork.Love the information about the progress of cooking.Don't like the plastic lid,old ones are better.also don't like the release button for the pressure,you have to hold onto the button to release,which for me is a hazard. Show details

Disappointed!!

I buy this product at 21/03/2020 at binglee the first time is amazing and made my life easy with fast cook.
not even 2 year and is already broken. Uncooked beef ,chicken and rice. And when u go to they website they can repair it for you but u need to pay. So that mean every +1,5 year i need to fix and pay again!
I thought for the money spent that this would be a great product & quality .. just beyond disappointed... Show details

Disappointed

I’ve used this several times and no matter which function I use I am disappointed with the results. For instance I used it for a rice dish which included carrots etc on slow cook and the carrots were raw. Show details

I bought this pressure cooker a month ago. Water was splashing out from the pressure limit valve when i released pressure for soup or congee. Does anyone come across this issue?

I have purchased the Tefal Home Chef Smart CY601D60 from JB hifi few days ago and I tried two of the receipes in the book that involve the pressure cooker and unfortunately there was no pressure building up. The display turned to the circular rotation and the 'Pressure Up' was still flashing for more than 30 minutes. Through this time the float valve was releasing the steam, hence there was no pressure building. The clock timer did not start as the Pressure Up phase was never completed. I have reached out to JB hifi and the replacement I have received is acting in a similar way. Either the whole lot is a dud or I am doing something wrong that the pressure is not building up and the float valve is just letting the steam out hence no pressure building up. Any suggestions from those who've used this before?
