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.
