Up for review today is the Secura 6-in-1 Programmable Electric Pressure Cooker 6qt, 18/10 Stainless Steel Cooking Pot—a pressure cooker that doesn’t have a very glamorous name but it does have a stylish look that really caught my attention. Which is probably why I wanted to get my hands on it while I was doing my best electric pressure cooker series. And you know what? I’m glad I did.
I first noticed it from all of the positive pressure cooker reviews I’ve been seeing, so I wanted to unpack it first thing and try it out. One of the first things I noticed when I did was that this unit actually looked as good as its pictures. It’s got a nice simple design with a little bit of flair worked into the top handle. I liked it.
However, while it did look good, what most people care about when they’re looking for the best electric pressure cooker is how it works and I must say this thing cooks pretty well. I cooked a number of things in it and it did a great job with all of them. I started off with making some chicken in it and it came out tender and well cooked. I then cooked some green beans, and after that, I cooked some white beans and ham hocks. It all turned out perfectly.
This 6-quart unit not only acted as a pressure cooker, but it also worked well as a steamer, rice cooker, and slow cooker. I was even able to use it to brown some link sausages in it, as well as make a nice hearty vegetable soup. It handled each task pretty well, and it even had an automatic warming feature that kept my soup warm until I could get around to eating it.
It also had a number of safety features that made it pretty safe to use, although it didn’t have as many safety as some of its competitors. It also didn’t have as many cooking options as its competitors. Fortunately, both those things can be forgiven thanks to how well it handled the cooking chores I put to it.
I have noticed heard some people complain that the fuses in these units fail. I’ve even heard that some people had to buy a 128-degree Celsius thermal fuse to replace the one in their cooker that failed. While I haven’t had that particular issue, it is something to keep in mind if you are looking to buy this unit as your next pressure cooker.
Finally, I would like to say that the Secura 6-in-1 Programmable Electric Pressure Cooker 6qt, 18/10 Stainless Steel Cooking Pot was easy to use. I had no problem setting it up, using it or cleaning it. Which is also the impression I got from reading some of the best electric pressure cooker reviews I’ve seen so far It’s a product that might have a few flaws but in the end, really does quite a decent job cooking up food. It might not be my first choice but it still performed very well.
