Farberware Pressure Cooker

Oct 1, 2001
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Programmable, electric, auto shut-off

Cons:May be too small for large families, expensive

The Bottom Line: Great machine if you tend to forget about things on the stove!


I love the fact that this model is programmable and has a digital timer. I didn't trust myself to use the traditional pressure cookers which have to be heated on the stove to boiling, regulated and watched, then cooled down by water etc. I tend to do a lot of things at once and was afraid I'd accidently forget about it on the stove.

The Farberware is so easy to use, I just plug it in, set the digital timer, hit start I can walk away from it. It will beep & stop when it's done. I can also pre-program it to start up to 2 hours after I put the food in. It also has a browning feature. The non-stick removable cooking pot is both a pro and a con. I can't use any metal utensils and I can see some scratching in areas I did use a fork. They should've made it out of stainless steel.

Its 4 quart capacity may not be enough if you tend to want a lot of leftovers. It is large enough to accomidate a whole chicken, or medium roast and veggies. It's a lifesaver when I want a homemade tomato sauce, or a Sunday tasting meal when time is short. For ease of use alone, it's very simple and does what it's supposed to.
