Timing the pressure cookers

I’m being asked about the recent Good Housekeeping review of electric pressure cookers, where they recommend the Fagor Lux over the Instant Pot because it comes up to pressure quicker – much quicker. Since I recommended the Instant Pot when I compared the Fagor and Instant Pot 8 Quart cookers, I want to check on this.

I didn’t notice a big difference in time to pressure…nothing jumped out at me like “wow, the Fagor seems much faster.” But, I tend to be “set it and forget it” about my cookers, and I never did timings or a side by side run of the two.

I’m testing the two cookers I have now, and I can neither confirm nor deny that I used this as an excuse to buy the copper colored Fagor Lux 6 Quart. I’ll report back once I have data to share.

Sharing is caring!
