14 Things You'll Love About Elechomes Cooker

The Elechomes Cooker has multiple, unique features that any foodie will love.

Below is a short taste of the very best that the Elechomes Pressure Cooker has to offer:

  1. Pressure cooker with 6 adjustable levels for 70% faster cooking times
  2. Slow cook function
  3. Cake and yogurt maker
  4. Saute and steamer
  5. Cooks meat, stew, beans, and chili
  6. Egg cooker replacement
  7. Multi-grain, rice, soup, broth, and porridge cooking
  8. Poultry mode
  9. Food warmer that keeps food warm for up to 24 hours
  10. Food prep accessories including 6 quart stainless steel inner pot, stainless steel rack, tempered glass lid, silicone mitts, measuring cup, and rice paddle
  11. ETL + FDA certified with 10 safety mechanisms
  12. Delay timer for when to start cooking meals
  13. Easy one touch controls w/14 preset cooking programs and adjustable time/temperature/pressure settings
  14. Excellent user guide & cookbook with recipes, info on venting/sealing and pressure cooker cleaning/maintenance

If you're unfamiliar with pressure cookers then Elechomes has a well-thought out instructional manual and simple recipe book that will help you get started.

The manual has specific instructions regarding pressure, temperature, and time settings for any type of food you're working with. In addition, the device comes with a tempered lid that can be used with slow & other non-pressure cooking methods.

I consider myself an amateur cook so this guide was a huge help. I discovered that starting with something easy like rice is a good way to get your feet wet before moving on to more challenging recipes.

How to Stay Safe While Cooking

Though Elechomes has 10 safety mechanisms, it's still extremely important to heed warning stickers while pressure cooking.

Failure to adhere to proper safety protocols could lead to severe burns and other injuries. The sealing/venting settings are especially important as one wrong touch or twist could be very damaging.

This is why the lid, glass, and sealing knob should never be touched during cooking, and when it is time to release the pressure, make sure to do it slowly and away from your face.

5 Things I Enjoyed Most About the Elechomes Pressure Cooker

As I've stated there's plenty to like about this device, but there's 5 in particular that jumped out to me.

  • Food prep accessories
  • Large 6 quart stainless steel lid
  • Keep warm settings
  • Adjustable controls
  • Preset programs

I was pleasantly surprised when they included the mitts, measuring cup, rice paddle, and other helpful food prep accessories along with the cooker. They made my kitchen life so much easier and any newbie will find it refreshing.

Moreso I'm glad they stuck with the 6 quart stainless steel inner pot that the Instant Pot uses. These pots are very clean, durable, reliable, and have plenty of space too.

Finally I just love the functionality of it all with the adjustable time/pressure/temp settings to the preset cooking programs; the keep warm tag-on is also very handy.

All of these make it very easy for a beginner like myself, and even the most expert cook will love the ease and accessibility of this product.


Elechomes Cooker vs Instant Pot

So now we're down to the big question at hand:

Instant Pot or Elechomes?

Well the good news is that both pretty much do the same thing and anyone would be lucky to have either.

But if you really wanna get down to the nitty gritty then here are some differences to be aware of:

Note: This comparison is to the original Instant Pot.

Elechomes Pressure Cooker (EC) vs. Instant Pot Duo (IP)

  1. EC is slimmer, taller and lighter than IP at 12.2lbs vs 15.8lbs

  2. EC has a 6 quart inner pot vs 6-8 quarts on IP
  3. EC has 9-in-1 cooking programs vs 7-in-1 for IP with two bonus settings for egg and cake cooking
  4. EC is rated 1000W against 1200W for IP
  5. Both have 14 smart programs, 10 safety mechanisms, an easy-seal lid, and are similarly priced ($79 to $89)
  6. EC has 6 pressure levels vs 2 for IP
  7. EC has added accessories including a silicone mitt, measuring cup, rice paddle, etc.
  8. IP has an app & book for recipes
  9. Original IP is upgradable with more cooking programs, software updates, WiFi connectivity, and even air frying
  10. Both have a delay timer and both can keep your food warm for 24 hours

So there you have it...

Each cooker has its strengths and weakness though the greatest strength of the Instant Pot is that there are bigger & better versions available.

For example the Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus has similar cooking programs as Elechomes but includes things like sous vide & bake cooking, 48 customizable preset options, 20+ enhancements for safety/venting/pressure cooking, and more.

That sounds like a lot though when it comes to daily use, even the advanced Instant Pot isn't that big of a change.

I think most people would be happy with either the Elechomes or the original Instant Pot, but if you want a little extra for the same price then Elechomes may be the way to go.


Elechomes Pressure Cooker: Final Review

Since when did everybody get so into pressure cooking?

That's a question I've been wondering while testing these cookers, but you know what...I get it. They absolutely accomplish a lot in a faster than normal time and the simplicity is enticing enough to bring even cooking novices to the kitchen table.

I will give the Elechomes Electric 9-in-1 Pressure Cooker 4.75 out of 5 stars.

Besides the fact that it lacks a few capabilities that the upgraded Instant Pot has, there's not much else to deduct a point for. The 14 preset programs are excellent and the guide/recipe book makes it super easy for amateurs to get started.

The other stuff is equally awesome. I love how you can adjust the settings on the fly and the delay timer is convenient. My food came out fresh, saucy, and delicious each time I used it and I can't wait to use it again over the holidays.

The Elechomes Pressure Cooker makes a fantastic gift for anyone who gets a little lost in the kitchen. It's simple to operate, the food comes out tasty, and I fully recommend this product because it's just as good if not better than the original Instant Pot that started our pressure cooking craze.
