The Emeril by T-fal Electric Pressure Cooker has a standard 6 quart capacity and measures 14.1 x 14.1 x 16.5 inches.

Emeril by T-Fal Electric Pressure Cooker Cook Settings

(Back to Top)
The Emeril electric pressure cooker was designed so that it would be easy to use for everyone, even those who have never used a pressure cooker before. By pressing the menu button, you can choose from five settings – high and low pressure, brown, simmer and saute. Food can pressure cook for up to 99 minutes, which is more than enough time to tenderize the toughest cuts of meat. This machine will also brown foods at 356 degrees, saute at 284 degrees and simmer at 185 degrees.

After selecting the setting, press the time button to set the cook time. The LED timer will flash, indicating it is either building pressure or preheating, depending on the setting. When it is fully pressurized, the LED display will stop flashing and will start counting down the cook time. For brown, simmer and saute, it will stop flashing when it is preheated. There is no time limit for these functions.

When the cycle is complete, the machine will automatically keep food warm for up to 12 hours. You can choose to either let it automatically release pressure, which can take up to 30 minutes, or use the quick pressure release.

“We make a point to eat as a family at least once every week so, I gave this as a gift to my mother for her birthday. We have had BBQ’d chicken, my favorite pot roast, & chicken noodle soup. The recipe for bbq’d chicken was in the book that came with it but, we altered it to our liking, mainly using the cooking times listed in book to improvise for the quantity of meat we used. WE HAVE NOT MADE A LESS THAN STELLAR MEAL YET!! No exaggeration. No left-overs is all the proof I need. We were getting tired of the same meals over and over again, and now our capabilities and options have been stretched to new hieghts. We are only limited by our enthusiasm and imagination. Tender and really delicious meat and vegetables at incredible speed….(read more here: Emeril by T-Fal Electric Pressure Cooker Review)”

Emeril by T-Fal Electric Pressure Cooker Pros & Cons

(Back to Top)

Emeril by tfal electric pressure cooker prosPros: All customers note how easy this electric pressure cooker is to use, with a simple control panel and straightforward directions. The high and low pressure settings make it versatile enough to cook both delicate vegetables and tough cuts of meat. It also heats quickly, so you don’t have to wait to begin cooking.

Emeril by tfal electric pressure cooker consCons: There are only a couple of minor flaws with Emeril’s electric pressure cooker that can easily be fixed or avoided. As with all nonstick surfaces, the cooking pot is prone to peeling and flaking. Using wooden utensils instead of metal ones will keep it in good shape longer. Also, the high temperature of the browning setting causes any oil in the pot to pop, which can cause burns. Long cooking utensils and a splatter screen will remedy this issue.
