Cosori CP016-PC Electric Pressure Cooker Review
Weeknights are always rushed and often the last thing we want to do in the evenings is stand over the stove for an hour cooking a meal. In these Cosori pressure cooker reviews, I will show you why I love my electric pressure cooker. There is nothing that makes me happier than the simplicity of tossing my meat and condiments into the cooker, turning it on low and then getting on with my evening. The best part as well is that the meat is always perfectly cooked with a more intense marinated flavor within a short time. And what could be easier than opening the lid, dishing it all up and microwaving a packet of minute rice to accompany your meal?
Another great thing about using a pressure cooker is the taste of the meal afterward. Many types of meat such as pork and lamb are quite tough and rubbery if they are not cooked for long enough, but let’s face it no one has time to let the meat simmer for hours on end on a weeknight and that’s where the pressure cooker comes in to play. Many electric pressure cookers come with various settings, depending on how quickly you would like your meal to cook. Placing your meat on lower settings will mean your meal will cook slower, giving the meat the opportunity to absorb more of the flavors, produce more juices and will breakdown to form that fall off the bone, melt in the mouth sensation that everyone loves. The great thing about a pressure cooker is that even when the meat is placed on a higher setting, it will still cook down even the toughest cuts of meat and leave behind delicious juices that can easily be turned into a meat gravy to drizzle over your meal when serving.
But as I am sure you will agree, the success of your pressure cooked meal largely depends on the quality of your pressure cooker. With so much competition out there on different electric pressure cookers, it can be tricky to know which makes and models will be the most effective for you and your family. I too at one time found myself struggling, scrolling through what seemed like endless pages of electric slow cooker reviews and information until I found two candidates which I personally think make the very best small electric pressure cookers on the market right now.
In this article, I will go on to share my findings of two of the very best pressure cookers and information on them including specifications that you should look out for before purchasing. I will also discuss the differences between instant pots and Cosori cookers so that you can make the very best choice according to your needs.
