I've now been using my 6 qt Express Crock for about 6 months and LOVE it. I cook most of my meals in it, most of them express, but some slow cooking. I gave my Crock Pot slow cooker to my daughter and use this one exclusively now. Living in a tiny house, space is limited. The size of this Express cooker fits perfectly on my counter. Food tastes great! Pork, Beef and Chicken falling off the bone after just 35-45 minutes of cooking (less for chicken!). Would very much recommend.
I had been waiting and waiting for a pressure cooker and finally decided on this one because I love crock pot, but every time I try to use it I either give up or it takes hours trying to get it to stop giving error messages. It would give error messages not even related to what I was doing. I was really hoping that I would love this product.
I used this the 1st time to make pulled pork Hawaiian-style! 4 lbs. in 90 minutes! Super moist and just fell apart as i puled it out of the pot!
I bought this 4 or 5 months ago. I've used it less than 2 dozen times. I've had to repair it 3 times already! The seal breaks, the rocker breaks, now the steam valve breaks! It sits on my counter gathering dust. Don't buy.
I really loved this appliance for about the first 6 months. Since then I've been getting an e5 error after I've used it for pressure cooking. I can't bring my sauce back up to the boil to thicken or pressure cook longer if needed, it won't let me do anything even if I unplug it and plug it back in, it has to cool down completely. Very frustrated, I bought a well known brand with hopes that it would last.
I bought this back in January and I have used this a total of maybe 5 times. The first time I used this I made pot roast. Put it on slow cooker mode. Should have been simple and great. The meat was not soft or tender at all. I thought maybe I did something wrong. Second time I used it. I made another simple meal , chicken with enchilada sauce. The chicken was tuff. So I gave up and waited. I used it again with my boyfriend. Didn't turn out great. So I haven't used it for a while. I cooked a stew type of thing today. It was on slow cooker mode from 4:30 till 5pm. Why was the carrot and potatoes still hard!!?? I don't know why I keep using this thing. My original crockpot is the best ever! Why can't this work??
