To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This cooker is easy to use and can accommodate a number of cooking styles. Could not give it a 5 star rating as the design can be further improved. When opening the lid, water droplets tend to dribble to the side and can flow down along the pot onto the heating element. The pot can take 15 to 25 minutes to build up pressure and another 10 to 15 minutes to release it. So, please add 25 to 40 minutes to your overall cooking time. Overall, still happy with the purchase as it is one handy cooker to have in the kitchen.
We purchased this to save time (and gas) when stewing chinese soups. We have found many other uses by getting ideas from the cook book provided as well the many websites out there. Never cooked with pressure cooker before but found this easy to use and safe.
Cooker takes up minimal space especially since the lid is attached so you don’t need to find a place to put the lid when you open the cooker. Cleaning the inner lid is easy and not too much trouble.
Item well received and works well. Ordered in 2019 and still working well. However there were instances where the handle locked on its own and air pressure wouldnt release. Even after turning off it didnt work. Other than that, a very multi functional item and easy to use. However i dont know how to clean out some rice that dropped under the cooker plate. So far no smoke or fire from raw rice in the machine.
love our HD2145! my daughter loves good soup and that usually takes a few hours on the stove which is a waste of gas! now i can get almost the same results with just a fraction of the time! even better that i got it during black friday sales! woohooo!
