I’m still finding the electric pressure cooker is my favorite way to prepare a meal and using it numerous times each week. I’m so thrilled with this method of cooking that I’m building an electric pressure cooker resource page for this site. I recently learned of the Cosori Premium 8-in-1 Pressure CookerCosori Premium 8-in-1 Pressure Cooker and was fortunate enough to receive one to try. Here’s my thoughts on it, along with my recipe for Pressure Cooker Cinnamon Chip Cake.
What is the Cosori 8-in-1 Pressure Cooker?
The all-new Cosori Premium 8-in-1 Pressure Cooker is equipped with one-touch settings, a patented design, and advanced steam technology. This cutting-edge culinary appliance is designed to help you prepare delicious and nutritious meals with greater convenience, safety, and efficiency than traditional cooking methods. Now, you can cut down on meal preparation and clean-up time while still enjoying delectable dishes in your own kitchen.
The Cosori 8-in-1 Pressure Cooker has six different cooking functions – Bake, Sauté and Brown, Boil, Steam, Slow Cook, and Pressure Cook. There are six different levels of pressure, with the lower one being suggested for tender foods. Cooking in the pressure mode allows food to cook up to 70% faster. You can also cook in the temperature mode, which lets you specify the temperature you want to cook at.
What’s included with the Cosori 8-in-1 Pressure Cooker?
The Cosori 8-in-1 Pressure Cooker includes the pot, steamer basket, extra silicone gasket, glass lid, 2 rice paddles, measuring cup and recipe book.
The Cosori was designed with safety in mind and has 10 safety mechanisms to help ensure safe operation.
1. Pressure Limiter – ensures pressure is kept within safe operating levels.
2. Lid Lock Safety – prevents the lid from being opened while the cooker is pressurized.
3. Anti-Clog Protection – keeps food particles from blocking the pressure release valve.
4. Lid Position Monitor – prevents the pressure cooker from operating if the lid is improperly positioned.
5. Micro Limit Switch Protection – Watches to ensure your lid is sealed and secure.
6. Pressure Auto-Control Guard always keeps pressure in a safe range.
7. Electrical Current Monitor – automatically turns off pressure cooker if the current exceeds safe operational levels.
8. Excessive Pressure Protection – internally releases pressure to avoid hazardous situations.
9. Temperature Controller – ensures food is evenly cooked, but not burned.
10. Excess Temperature Monitor – cuts power to temperature fuse if internal temperature exceeds safety limits.
What did I think of the Cosori 8-in-1 Pressure Cooker?
The Cosori looks modern and sturdy. In the beginning, the lid felt very stiff and I had a little bit of a difficult time getting it to seat and close properly. After using the pressure cooker a couple of times the lid did seem to become easier to work with. There were a couple of meals I was making where I had problems getting the controls set to what they should be or getting the dish to come to pressure. All of them involved me trying to specify cooking time and temperature as opposed to using a preset setting. The instruction booklet does contain information on this but I felt it could be a bit clearer. The rest of the meals I’ve made in the Cosori turned out as planned without issue. I haven’t tried cooking in the temperature mode yet but am looking forward to doing so as I hate heating up the house by turning on the oven once warmer weather has arrived.
Wondering where you can purchase a Cosori 8-in-1 Pressure Cooker?
