1. Save time. 
If you like to cook stews or soups at home, but you're always finding yourself under a strict time crunch to cook an Instagram-worthy broth, it's time you meet your new kitchen best friend.

2. Make meals without the hassle of changing pots. 
If you're trying to conserve counter-space, a pressure cooker is the perfect addition to your growing empire of stainless steel appliances. We know you need your cutting board room, so instead of dealing with the hassle of changing pots and storing them around the counterour pressure cooker has the options to cook all sorts of recipes in one pot. So, you'll spend less time rinsing pots and pans, and more time enjoying your meal.

3. It might just become your "go-to" cooker.
Our pressure cooker can serve as a slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté pan, stock pot, steamer and warmer, and can even be used for baking yummy desserts. A lot of people don't know you can make desserts using a pressure cooker instead of a traditional oven! How's that for creative dishes? 

4. Ideal for meal prepping or serving.
Maybe you just got into pre-packaging your lunch for work, or you're just looking to cook a meal for a big group. Our 6-quart 1000 watt electric pressure cooker is ideal for meal prepping and serving families of all sizes. You can also serve meals easier with our included stainless steel glass lid, 160 mL measuring cup, spoon, laddle, and a FREE recipe book to help you get started!

5. Retain more nutrients while cooking.
While it's common to think high temperatures strip nutrients in cooking legumes and grainsthat's simply not always the case. Since pressure cooking doesn't require high temperatures, much liquid, and shortens cooking time, there is less time for nutrient loss and more time retaining moisture and flavor.
