This do-it-all kitchen appliance is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker and warmer.
Promising review: “I use the pressure cook and slow cook options regularly! I even got rid of my stovetop pressure cooker, because I wasn’t using it anymore. This one does the job perfectly well, with no noise, and no mess. The sauté feature is a huge bonus. A lot of slow cooker recipes require that you brown the meat first. It really saves the mess and hassle of browning it on the stove, and then transferring it over to the slow cooker. I simply use the sauté feature to brown whatever I need, then turn it off, switch to slow cook mode, cover, and walk away. It’s the best feeling to get home from work in the evening and have a home-cooked meal ready to go!” —Beatriz
