Elite Pressure Cooker Reviews
Here are the best electric cookers from Elite Platinum brand.
Pressure cookers don’t get better than the 14-in-1 Elite Platinum. It is equipped with 14 pre-programmed cooking modes that can cook anything from rice, vegetables, meats, soups and many other delicacies.
For instance, if you are planning to have chicken for dinner, simply throw it in, add the ingredients you wish and simply select preprogrammed chicken cooking mode.
Operating this 8 quart Platinum pressure cooker is as easy as can be. When it comes to safety features, this pressure cooker comes fitted with 8 unique safety mechanisms that are designed to protect you from harm.
It comes equipped with a heat-resistant touch lid and handle to hold on to for stirring or adding ingredients to the food.
The 14-in-1 platinum cooker is a class leader when it comes to technology. It features a timer that can be preprogrammed to start cooking at a later time in the day or evening.
This function can be used to precook your food and have it ready immediately you get home after a long day of work. After extensive testing and usage, I can say that this pressure cooker works extremely well.
Fill the pot up to around the 6 or 7-quart mark to give the food ample space to boil in and also to give yourself room to stir. Filling the 8-quart pot to the brim will result in spillages and a messy kitchen.

What’s more, you don’t have to wait there for the meal to get ready, simply set the timer and the cooker will notify you once your meal is ready. When you think it can’t get any better, the food is automatically kept warm in case you forget to serve your meal in time.
The main differences between this pressure cooker and the 14-in-1 platinum are the number pre-programmable cooking modes and the food capacity levels between the 2 cookers.
While you get 6 less pre-programmed cooking modes in the EPC than in the 14-in-1, the EPC elite pressure cooker 10 qt comes with a 10-quart cooking pot, meaning it’s more suitable for a larger family.

Its overall dimensions are relatively small, meaning you can store this cooking appliance in the kitchen cabinets with great ease.
When it comes to technology and ease of operation, the Elite Bistro cooker is one of the easiest pressure cookers to master. For starters, it comes equipped with preprogrammed cooking methods that allow 99 minutes of customized cooking for your meal.
