    Oh my, this machine is amazing!!

    I ordered it form Bed, Bath and Beyond. It listed for 99.99 but I had a 20% off coupon. So total out to UPS for delivery was 91.00.

    I made some cabbage rolls in it for dinner, they were fabulous. Next time I will add a little bit more tomato sauce, we had enough for dinner. I will have to add some when I reheat them for tomorrow's meal.

    What do you like better about the electric vs the stop top models?

    I never used one before, my Mom does. I found this one to be really easy, much easier than my embroidery machine...haha

    I can't wait to make a pot of chili this weekend.

    The stove top ones terrify me, this one has 7 safety features on it.

    I use mine a lot for canning. Does the instruction book say anything about canning in that one?

    No, I don't think it's big enough. But here is the link to it at the manufacture's site.

    Sounds like something I could use. As a child I saw one explode, hurling parts of that night's chicken dinner all over the kitchen, and threw the lid out of a window that wasn't open.

    Scared me, never did use one after I grew up and out on my own.
    Just might check this one out, I never knew they made an electric one.

    Does it lower the temperature automatically? That is the hardest thing to control with a stove top one.

    I have one of these, too. I bought it a year ago and I love it. I'm not sure about your settings, but mine has a crock-pot setting (low only) and a brown meat setting. It automatically adjusts from cooking (at the crock pot setting) to warming when the meal is cooked.

    I haven't tried the actual pressure cooking part, I love the other functions so much. And very easy clean up.

    I got one from QVC a few years ago, love it. The top locks and you must release the pressure inside before it will allow you to unlock the top. Safety feature.
    It is wonderful to cook with.

    I use my stove top pressure cooker a lot. You should NEVER try to open cooker while the pressure is up. This is a safty feature. Let the pressure release quicker if you place pot in sink and run cool water over the pot. NEVER hold the pressure value down, you can take it off.

    I would like one of those.
    I'm afraid of the other ones.

    It has high/low pressure settings. Browning, sauteing and simmer. It does shut off and switches to a keep warm setting. You can relieve the pressure manually or let it do it all by itself.

    This one won't even unlock till the pressure is released.
