Love the Extra Large Size and Convenience! Nov. 30, 2016
I am less than a week into ownership of the Nesco 11 quart pressure cooker and, so far, I love it! Without spending more than just a few minutes reviewing the instructions, I found the unit to be easy to understand and generally intuitive to use.

On the first night, I took two different recipes and combined them to prepare a delicious Lemon Chicken and Veggies dish that satisfied both the meat eaters and vegetarians in the family, all in one pot! What would have taken at least twice as long to cook, with a ton more cleanup afterward, was ready for the table from prep to "yum" in just over 30 minutes! The saute feature worked well, and the non-stick, aluminum pot distributed the heat evenly to make cooking a lot of food an easy task!

I also learned (this morning) how to make perfect "hard boiled" eggs, using the steam setting. They cook in less than ten minutes, and peel more easily than any I've ever done the conventional way, no draining necessary! I will never boil another egg in my life, the old way, so long as I have access to a pressure cooker.

The design of this Nesco is clean and sleek, and the build quality seems solid. I own other Nesco products and have been very satisfied with their long-term quality. It remains to be seen how well this new pressure cooker will hold up, but I am cautiously optimistic that it will be used regularly for a very long time.

I gave this Nesco 4 out of 5 stars for several minor reasons. First, while the electronic controls are easy to use, I would have liked to have seen a few "pre-set" program buttons available for "one-touch" use. While there is really no mystery as to how to make this product duplicate a recipe one might find online for another pressure cooker, some customers prefer the convenience that pre-programmed settings bring to the table (pun intended, lol). I also would like to see a separate set of "up" and "down" timer-adjust buttons, so that cooking time can easily be adjusted both up and down from the default selection of each setting.

For example, when I wanted to "steam" the eggs this morning, the recipe called for 3 to 6 minutes, but the steam setting defauts to 10 minutes. This meant that I had to tap forward all the way to the highest time setting before the timer came full circle and reset to 00, where I could incrementally add the 6 minutes I wanted.

Adding all of these extra buttons in a logical way (as other companies have done) would add very minimally to the cost of an already expensive pressure cooker, while making some cooking operations much easier. I imagine that Nesco may have chosen to keep the control pad neat and clean, but a well organized control center could have provided more functionality without confusion.

Another feature I'd like to see, especially on an extra large model like this one, is a trivet (the circular wire framed platform that raises food above the liquid at the bottom) that has handles sticking up to allow for easy removal of the food sitting on top of it. Again, the cost difference versus the basic trivet included would be very small, but would really improve usability for the customer.

Finally, I would like to see Nesco offer an optional stainless steel cooking pot for the unit. I love the non-stick aluminum pot that comes with the unit, but having the option to drop in a more "forgiving" stainless pot would make the prospect of cooking more abrasive foods less worrisome over the long term. If Nesco were to offer a full slate of very useful accessories they could very easily dominate the large pressure cooker market, especially if they incorporate my other suggestions to produce the very best pressure cooker available.

I will update my review as time goes by, assuming this site allows for updates, but for now I will close by stating that I am looking forward to exploring all of the wonderful cooking options that this pressure cooker brings to my kitchen!
