Pros: Veggies retain their unique flavor. Meats are incredibly tender. Cooking is fast and easy.
Cons: It breaks after just a few uses regardless of time owned.
Summary: When it works it is very, very good. When it quits it is horrid. As every reviewer who has had the product for any length of time has found, the joy is short lived and there is no recourse. Please take heed that this product is sold under several brands. ... read more

Pros: Would be great if it worked
Cons: Doesn't work

Pros: When working, quite nice and delivered. Very quick and easy to use.
Cons: The only Con is that it is exceptionally unreliable. You have been warned.
Summary: The cooker worked great for about 3 uses and was super. What a great concept! I'd write more, but being stuck with such an expensive appliance after it working only three times takes the edge off my glee. It was quite a waste of ... read more

Summary: We have had Fabberware model FPC 800V for 2 years, that was used today for the second time. Guess what it quit working, called the company and was told they would send me one for $100.The cooker looks new and is. Why would I want to pay $100 for a piece ... read more

Pros: "great when it works"
Cons: "doesn't work all the time"--now, it works none of the time
Summary: Add my voice to the "great when it works" camp. Mine died after one year, with at least bi-weekly or monthly use. Mine was out of warranty, and now I am looking for another with similar features but a different ... read more

Cons: Short life span, waste of money for the number of uses...
Summary: I lovED it... WHEN it worked. The pressure cooker knob that adjusts from Pressure, clean or steam just fell off. Now a bolt or something is rattling around in the lids plastic housing unit and in order to fix it, I have to send it in to a certified ... read more

Pros: Very easy to use, works extremely well while it worked.
Cons: Extremely short life span, and no repair centers locally.
Summary: I bought one of these 8-qt cookers last Spring (2005). I used it about once every couple of weeks, until one day late summer (2005)it just stopped working. No lights, no indication at all. Could not find any external fuse (which would be a good idea ... read more

Pros: Cooks fast and built like a tank.
Cons: Electronics are very delicate.
Summary: We bought this six months ago and finally worked up enough guts to try it for the first time last week and made a fairly good chicken stew. Still need to work on my timing. Last night I bought four artichokes that were so large I had to cook two at a ... read more

Pros: Easy cleaning and everything comes out delicious.
Cons: the cooker is heavy for this old man.
Summary: I love my 8-Quart pressure cooker. I am single and really do not need and 8QT. But like Mama said you can always add more to a big pot than a small one. My country ribs comes out terrific. I had to send it back once. If I had trouble again I still ... read more

Pros: WHEN IT DID WORK, IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL THING!
Cons: I FEEL THIS PRODUCT IS DEFECTIVE AND SHOULD NOT BE ON THE MARKET.
Summary: I OWNED TWO OF THESE AND BOTH FAILED COMPLETELY AFTER A COUPLE OF MONTHS. I THOUGHT THE FIRST ONE FAILING WAS JUST A FLUKE. APPARENTLY IT WAS NOT AS THE SECOND PRESSURE COOKER DID THE EXACT SAME THING THIS VERY DAY (05/18/05). IT JUST STOPPED WORKING. ... read more

Pros: Easy to use, safe, easy to clean and cut cooking time by 70%.
Cons: A bit heavy when you have to drain off the fat.
Summary: I bought this about 2 weeks ago and used it at so much that now it sits on my counter all the time. Imagine cooking BBQ ribs in 20 minutes and boy is it so tender and flavorful! Lamb shanks in 25 minutes and just fell off the bones. Also great for ... read more

Pros: No burnt meals. Healthy way to cook. Timer. Low & High setting. Good instruction/recipe book.
Cons: Inner pot heavy for cleaning. Recommend the 4 quart unit for lighter weight & convenience.
Summary: Because of the "electric" timer I no longer "burn" or take the chance of "burning" the house down by getting preoccupied by other things. You can also time it to cook later. I've had no problems with mine. Meals are healthier and tastier because of the ... read more
