Pressure Cooker Cheesy Sausage Potato Chowder From Val's Kitchen & Mealthy Multipot Review

I have become quite smitten with using an electric pressure cooker and have been preparing our meals in one several days a week for a while now. It’s funny how something I was nervous about using in the beginning has become one of my favorite things to use in the kitchen. I recently learned of the Mealthy MultiPot and was fortunate enough to receive one to try. Here’s my thoughts on it, along with my recipe for Pressure Cooker Cheesy Sausage Potato Chowder.

What did I think of the Mealthy MultiPot?

I love it. I was impressed with the MultiPot from the moment I opened the box. For starters, the MultiPot has a sleek and glossy black stainless finish. I have a lot of stainless in my kitchen and I am really liking the darker finish on the MultiPot. Plus it seems to be more fingerprint resistant than my stainless pots.

What impressed me most about the MultiPot?

The MultiPot’s instruction book is very clearly written and very easy to understand. Electric pressure cookers can be intimidating to someone who hasn’t used one before, so an intuitive, user-friendly manual is a must. Along with the manual there is a one-page guide to pressure cooking that’s included as well. Folks new to using an electric pressure cooker will appreciate seeing a guide to what each button does and can be used for.

The MultiPot comes with terrific, useful accessories that most other brands don’t include. The trivet and steamer basket make it easy to cook more than one thing at a time, and also help facilitate pot in pot cooking. Having an extra sealing ring is always helpful because they can take on a certain odor and you don’t want sweets smelling savory and vice versa. The little pot holders are the perfect size to let you get the pot out of the cooker without burning your hands or using bulky oven mitts.

The MultiPot’s display is far more helpful and informative than any other electric pressure cooker I have used so far. The lighted display contains easy-to-read buttons. There is a time tracker that tells you how far you are into the heating and cooking cycles, as well as how long a dish has been warming once it’s finished cooking. It’s easy to increase or decrease the pressure level and amount of time on presets.

The MultiPot’s float is bright red and stands up above the pot. This makes it super easy to see and know if the pot has come to pressure or not.

What improvements could I suggest?

The Mealthy MultiPot is a 6-quart electric pressure cooker. This is considered the “average” size for electric pressure cookers, and is ideal for cooking for 2-6 people. The one and only suggestion for improvement that I have at all is to see a larger model become available in the future, for really large families and big batch cooking.

Wondering where you can purchase a Mealthy Multi-Pot?

No matter if you’re new to or experienced with using an electric pressure cooker, you’ll be thrilled with this appliance. You can purchase the Mealthy MultiPot on Amazon.

You can learn more about the MultiPot on the Mealthy website. You can also keep up with Mealthy on social media, on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

I’ve made about 10 different meals using the Mealthy MultiPot so far. I’ve already shared one for Pressure Cooker Corned Beef.  The MultiPot was perfect for making corned beef and potatoes easily in one pot in less than 2 hours. Today I’d like to share a recipe for Pressure Cooker Cheesy Sausage Potato Chowder with you.

Cheesy Sausage Potato Chowder is a hearty soup that doesn’t take long to prepare, making it perfect for a busy, chilly day.

Pressure Cooker Cheesy Sausage Potato Chowder From Val's Kitchen & Mealthy Multipot Review

Instructions

Set the pressure cooker  to saute.

Place a very thin layer of olive oil onto the bottom of the pot.

Place the sweet Italian sausage links into the pot and brown them.

While the sausage is cooking, peel the potatoes.

Cut up the peeled potatoes. You’ll want to cut some of them into bite sized pieces and some of them into cubes.

Remove the sausage from the pot and slice it.

Pour the chicken broth into the pot and make sure you deglaze any sausage bits that areestuck to the bottom of the pot.

Return the sausage to the pot.

Place the potatoes on top of the sausage.

Add the seasonings and carrots to the pot.

Select the soup setting on the pot and set it to 4 minutes. (You could also set the pot to cook on manual high pressure for 4 minutes.)

Once the cooking cycle has finished, do a quick pressure release.

Set the pot to warm.

Add the milk, cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese to the pot.

Stir the pot until the milk, cream cheese and cheddar cheese have all dissolved.

Serve immediately.

If you have leftover Pressure Cooker Cheesy Sausage Potato Chowder you can store it in a glass container in the fridge. It does thicken even more after the second day so you may want to thin it out a tiny bit with some milk or even a little bit of cream.

    Still cool enough to make this sausage and potato chowder for an evening meal. I haven’t broke down and bought one of these pressure cookers yet. Still on the fence but your post has certainly helped me understand more about how they work.

    I use my pressure cooker all the time. It really is a huge timesaver. Mine didn’t come with a strainer basket so I probably need to order one of those. It amazes me that I can make so many dishes in so little time.

    I have yet to jump on the bandwagon of these appliances for quick meals. I don’t know why though! I love a good homemade meal, but, I don’t always have the time to make them. These are perfect to use.
