DESIGN: Inspired by European design, featuring modern, simplistic and clean design, this product complements any kitchen dcor.

The Berghoff Electric Pressure Cooker was by far the best electric pressure cooker we tested, and it's our top pick. It's easy to use, cooks food quickly, and it comes with everything you need. The programmable timer and automatic shutoff are convenient, and we loved that the pressure cooker comes with its own non stick pot and spoon and a 6 cup steaming cup. The electric pressure cooker's pressure levels are easy to adjust, and the pot's material is very easy to clean. The pressure cooker comes with two pressure settings: Low, which boils water quickly, and High, which cooks food more gently. This pressure cooker has a 6 quart capacity, which is big enough to make an entire meal, but small enough that it's ideal for cooking for one or two people.

FEATURES: Quick-release and open-lid regulator, the lid lock and overpressure plug. Stay-cool handle for a safe and comfortable grip. Measurement markings inside helps control the portion of ingredients. 3-layer base provides a fast and even heat distribution.

The BergHOFF Essentials 18/10 Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker Set is the best value we've seen in a four-piece set. The 4.2-quart cooker is compact enough for a small family, and the 7.4-quart cooker is big enough to feed a crowd. The 7.4-quart cooker has a pressure seal, so it can be used without a lid, but the 4.2-quart cooker needs a lid. The 4.2-quart cooker has a soft-touch handle, and the 7.4-quart cooker has a stay-cool handle, so they're comfortable to hold. The cookers are induction-compatible, so they're compatible with all electric stoves, except induction cooktops. The set comes with a steamer basket and a rack so you can make rice, couscous, or egg dishes. The steamer basket is removable, so it's easy to wash. The cookers are easy to clean, and they come with a glass lid, so the cooking process is visible. The set is dishwasher safe, but the lid isn't. The set is reasonably priced, and it's nicely made, so it's a good choice for small families, busy college students, and anyone who needs to cook on a stove that isn't their own.

Made of durable, hand-cast aluminum with an attractive, easy to clean satin finish; Easy on-off cover; Positive action clamping wing nuts permit easy opening and closing.

The All American 921 canner is a well-built, hardworking machine that will safely can your food items. Its 5-, 10-, and 15-PSI settings are perfect for most foods, and the automatic overpressure release feature ensures that your food comes out safely. The 921 is very easy to use, and it has a nice, sturdy handle and lid, which makes it easy to lift and carry. The "metal-to-metal" sealing system makes sealing jars a breeze, and, unlike most other canners, the 921 doesn't have any gaskets to replace or clean. While testing the 921, we canned a wide variety of foods, including vegetables, fruits, meats, and grains, and all of them came out perfectly. The 921 also has a handy rack, which is adjustable, so you can easily can different sizes of jars. The only complaint we had with the 921 was its a bit heavy, so it isn't the easiest canner to carry around.

Durable stainless steel construction ensures long lasting performance; side handles for a secure grip

The T-fal Clipso 12-PSI Pressure Cooker Cookware delivers high performance, is incredibly durable, and is dishwasher-safe, so it's excellent for families with young children. It's also very easy to clean, with a removable cooking pot, a steam basket, a stand, and a lid. The pot is made from nonstick, stainless steel, and ceramic, which means it's dishwasher-safe and nonstick, too. The pot, steam basket, and lid all come with their own lid and holder, so you can easily stack them in your dishwasher, and the steam basket comes with a lid and holder so you can store it upright. The Clipso is well-designed and user-friendly. The pot and lid are sealed together by a silicone gasket, and the lid has an inner valve that controls how much steam is released. The steam release valve is variable, so you can adjust how strong the steam pressure is. The Clipso also has an inner aluminum disc, which distributes heat evenly and prevents the liquid from boiling too quickly. The Clipso is well-made and safe to use, and it's versatile, too. It can be used on gas, electric, glass, and induction cooktops, and you can even use the Clipso on your outdoor grill. The Clipso comes with a steaming basket, recipe card, and stand, so you can make delicious soups, vegetables, rice, and pasta. The Clipso also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee and a one-year warranty.

EASY-TO-CLEAN: 8-qt. Cooking Pot and 5-qt. Cook & Crisp Basket are ceramic-coated, nonstick, PTFE/PFOA free, and dishwasher safe.

The Ninja Foodi XL is a multi-function pressure cooker, air fryer, and steamer all in one. It performs well in all three cooking modes, and it's versatile enough to air fry, steam, bake, fry, and roast. The XL's 8-quart capacity is ideal for larger families or for those who like to cook for a crowd. It heats up quickly and cooks food faster than our previous top pick, the Ninja Foodi XL, and faster than most countertop pressure cookers. The non-stick cooking pot interior makes cleanup easy, and the lid comes with a handy slide-out drawer that holds extra accessories. The Ninja Foodi XL comes with a smart lid that slides open to reveal 3 different cooking modes. In Pressure Cooker mode, the Ninja Foodi XL can pressure cook, steam, and steam-crisp food, and in Saute mode, it can be used to sear and saute. The 5-quart Crisp Basket can handle a full 5 pounds of potatoes, and the top rack of the deluxe reversible rack can double the Foodi XL's capacity, making it perfect for 3-component meals. The cookbook included with the Ninja Foodi XL has 45 recipes, and it's filled with great recipes for everything from breakfast to dessert, including chicken, pork, beef, fish, and vegetarian dishes. The included Crisp Basket handle is too long and can be hard to grip, and the rack is flimsy. Also, the removable handle on the lid can fall off, and you must remove the rack to use the top rack; the rack is not removable without removing the handle.

VERSATILE INNER COOKING POT: We use food-grade stainless-steel, a tri-ply bottom for more even cooking and perfect for sauting

The Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 is our favorite multicooker, and it's the only model we tested that earned our highest overall score. The Duo is powerful enough to cook large meals for a crowd, but it's easy to use and maintain, and it's designed to last for years. It also has a large, easy-to-read touch screen, and it's easy to clean. The Duo 7-in-1's biggest selling point is its versatility—you'll find 10 built-in Smart Programs for pressure cooking, slow cooking, rice cooking, yogurt making, steaming, sautéing, warming, and browning, plus 7 manual settings that allow you to adjust the cooking time and temperature. The Duo's pressure cooking functions proved more powerful than the Zojirushi PM-2's, and in tests, the Duo cooked rice, beans, and meat much faster than the Zojirushi, and it was more accurate at determining doneness. The Duo also earned the highest rating for safe and easy-to-clean features, and its 10 safety features include automatic pressure release, which stops cooking when there's too much pressure in the pot, and an auto-lock lid that stops releasing steam when the pressure is released. The Duo's biggest weakness is its price. The Duo's 8-quart capacity is double that of both the Instant Pot Lux and the IP-LUX60 6-in-1, and it's also more expensive than the Zojirushi or the IP-LUX60. But we feel it's worth the cost, and we think the Duo 7-in-1 is the best multicooker for most people.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY: The MAGEFESA FAVORIT cooker, cooks meat using only 1/15 of the heat energy normally required and can prepare black beans with just 1/3 of the normal energy required. By cooking at higher temperatures, the pressure cooker cooks faster, saving time and energy. Thermo-resistant side handles which provides a comfortable and safe handling.

We love the compact size and elegant design of this pressure cooker from Magefesa, which fits snugly on a standard countertop. This pressure cooker is easy to use, and it operates very quietly. The pressure settings are easy to adjust, and the pot seals tightly, so food doesn't dry out. The stove and oven-safe stainless steel interior is easy to clean, and the translucent, tempered glass lid makes it easy to see when the food is cooking. The included recipe book contains a wide range of recipes and tips, and the pot is dishwasher-safe. The only complaint we had about this product was that the manual's instructions were difficult to follow, so we recommend consulting the included recipe book if you're a first-time pressure cooker user.
