Best piece of cookware I have ever bought!
I have had my pressure cooker for some time now and use it nearly every week. It is great to use in both winter and summer. I have made soups, pot roasts, curries, stews, you name it, I have tried most savoury meals in it. It is so easy to clean, I sometimes put my pot in the dishwasher but not the lid, there are no problems with residual smells. It is so good at cutting down cooking time and the energy used to cook. I am constantly trying out new recipes in the pressure cooker. Best piece of cookware I have ever bought!
- Verified purchase
I purchased the Tefal 8L pressure cooker a few months back and I have no regrets. Very easy to use and clean. I’ve made soups, roasts and rissotos in a fraction of the time it would normally take on the stove top. still getting use to how quick it is. The only downside is that it doesn’t come with a cook book included. This wasn’t a big issue for me as I get my recipes online. I also got the bigger size as I like to make winter soups and the 6L wouldn’t be big enough. I purchased this from Kitchen Warehouse and it was delivered in days and at the best price I’ve seen advertised.
Great Price Point.
Easy to use and fit the silicone ring (no 'right way up'.)
Easy to use and fit the lid (clear arrow markings.)
Easy to use handle and pressure selector. Lid, handle and controls 'feel right'.
Nice large size.
The base is small compared to the pot size - it's a mere 15 cm compared to the 22 cm pot.
The Pressure Indicator is situated low inside the lid - use steam as your pressure indicator.
The manual is clearly written and does come with cooking guide times though no recipes. Pdf version is available.
So easy to use and shortens cooking time
I've always wanted to get my own pressure cooker but couldn't justify paying the price and thankfully this went on sale at Myers so I just bought it.
It's super easy to use and is dishwasher safe (pot only not the lid) and comes with instructions on what amount of time it takes to cook certain things.
When my rice cooker broke I started using this to cook my rice. The time is shortened by half while the rice comes out perfectly fluffy and tasty.
Easy to use pressure cooker
Easy to use, especially after using my Mum's old pressure cooker. I got the 6 litre which is a good size to make a large stew or curry. Cooks the meat quickly and I prefer it to a slow cooker as you don't have to choose a meal hours before you want it. The lid clips on so it feels safe and secure. It would've been even better with a recipe book with some pressure cooker recipes.
Questions & Answers
I have had a 10 litre Tefal pressure cooker for 20 + years, loved it, wanted a smaller one as well. The Tefal secure neo 6 lit has been a frustration device with the gasket protruding through the safety window, leaking steam and causing the pressure cooker to lose its liquid, and boil dry. I have lubricated the seal with cooking oil, and it seams to be in good condition. I'm about to chuck it and buy another brand.
Hey, i just bought the tefal pressure cooker 5 neo 6L. I used it for the first time so when it got pressure the steam was coming out from the (valve A )throwing water and food particles as the steam should come out from the steam vents. Is there any problem with the cooker.
Did you overfill the cooker, or perhaps use too much liquid? There is a maximum fill level inside the pot. Also you should only use a maximum 2 cups of liquid.
