I have another recipe made with an electric pressure cooker for you! And with it I have a review of another new electric pressure cooker, the 8-quart GoWISE 12-in-1.
The GoWISE 12-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker has 12 preset features that make for getting a fast and easy start to cooking your meal. The settings are Bean/Chili, Canning, Egg Maker, Meat/Stew, Multigrain, Porridge, Poultry, Rice/Risotto, Seafood, Steam, Veggies, and Yogurt. There are also two additional functions, one for saute and one for slow cooking. Pressure for all settings can be switched between low, medium and high. You can set the time for any cooking cycle manually, and there is a timed delay available as well.
The GoWISE comes with the electric pressure cooker with stainless body and lid, and a ceramic copper pot. The unit has a detachable power cord. The product also comes with a measuring cup and spoon, stainless steel rack, 2 steam baskets and a booklet of 50 recipes.
Functionally, if you’ve used another brand of electric pressure cooker you’ll easily get accustomed to using the GoWISE. If you haven’t used an electric pressure cooker before then there is a slight learning curve, as the instruction booklet is super basic and contains explanations of the parts and cooking times, but not really anything in-depth on how to use it. I’ve used 5 or 6 other brands so I had no problem figuring it out. The only hiccup I ran into while using it was with the lid, the first few times I used it I had a difficult time getting it to seat and close.
One feature that the GoWISE has that I haven’t seen before is its pressure release button. So far all of the other pressure cookers I’ve used have a pressure release valve that needs to be turned, whereas the GoWISE has a button you push down similar to that which you’d find in a tea kettle. Having a button like this omitted the need for tongs to turn a valve and decreased the chances of accidentally burning an arm or hand when it got into the path of extremely hot steam.
The 8-quart size is exactly what people with large families will want, as well as those interested in meal prep, batch cooking and entertaining. The inner pot cleaned up nicely each time I used it, requiring no effort at all to remove particles of food with only a sponge. The pressure cooker does have a built-in holder for the paddle spoon it comes with, which makes it easier to find that spoon when you need it then it would be to hunt for it in a drawer.
Here’s a brief video from GoWISE on the model.

I’ve used the GoWISE 12-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker to make a number of meals now. The first I’d like to share is my recipe for Pressure Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Rice.
