Power Pressure Cooker XL Review

Is a Pressure cooker worth it?

I have the answer to your what is for dinner issue? The answer is simple. I have tried this, and I have tested this, and I have saved my bum every night this week. I am now able to throw frozen or refrigerated food into this pressure cooker and make dinner in minutes. The kids love it. The husband can’t get enough. He is now cooking himself lunch since you can make wings in 10 minutes. Yes, ten minutes. I swear he used to stand in front of the refrigerator for longer than that looking for a meal. So Is a pressure cooker worth it?

Power Pressure Cooker XL Review

It is hard to find something he likes and can eat with all his allergies so being able to make our food is a major help. I work and drive the kids all over the US, so I forgot that it is dinner time until it is almost too late you know 5 pm? I can’t tell you have easy it has been to cook dinner.

The question is, Is a pressure cooker worth it?

Yes, especially the one I received. The Power Pressure Cooker XL™ is a slow cooker, soup maker, rice cooker, canning machine, and a pressure cooker. It is easy to use. It allows you to buy cheaper meat that will cook up amazingly well. This machine is amazing and will make a great gift for weddings, college students, and most importantly yourself. I am saving time and money. I am cooking great meals in minutes, and I am now able to say I have one machine that can cook everything we need to eat!

This is the best storage option I love my Rubbermaid containers you can microwave them and refrigerator food in them. They do not stain!

You need this Silicon Lifter or your foil sling. You can put your Spring pan on the sling or foil and once the pressure cooker is done cooking release the pressure using your mitts
