The power pressure cooker xl cooks food in a third of the time that it would take on the stove or in the oven. It cooks food thoroughly and the food is always tender but it makes food like chicken and fish soggy and almost soup like. Even when you season the food the seasoning comes off and goes into the liquid that it makes. When I make pork chops they are really tender and almost melts in your mouth but all of the seasoning comes off of it and it becomes tasteless. The same goes for the baked chicken. It cooks it in 30 minutes when it would normally take an hour to an hour and 20 minutes, but it loses all of the flavor. What I might have to do is not season it, cook it in the power pressure cooker then when its done season it and bake it for an additional 20 minutes. I really don’t know what to say about this product. There are pros and cons but more cons than pros.
To check whether the food is cooked the Power Pressure Cooker XL needs to be opened. This slows down the cooking process whereas with the conventional saucepan you can simply inspect the food visually. This means that accurate timing is necessary for the recipe e.g. with an audible timer.
Also, you can adjust the pressure of your Power Pressure Cooker XL between 10-80 kPa, which means that you’ll be able to brown and sauté your food, as well as can your choice of fruits and vegetables. Other features of the Power Pressure Cooker XL include a 6, 8, or 10-quart capacity, stainless steel housing, digital display panel, safe lock lid, reinforced, and built-in steam ledge.
