A Deep Dive Into Yedi Pressure Cooker
Yedi Pressure Cooker not only provides versatility, convenience, and safety, but also taste, nutrition, health, and even money-saving benefits in just one appliance.
It cooks in less than half of the time in comparison to a normal cooker, in a way that helps to preserve its natural flavor and nutrients, resulting in more delicious and nutritious meals. Healthier too, without losing essential nutrients and while eradicating dangerous micro-organisms from your food. Its inner pot features a three-ply bottom that evenly distributes heat to ensure that food is thoroughly and safely cooked all the way through. It also has no chemical coating whatsoever, unlike most of today’s non-stick cookware.
Yedi Pressure Cooker gives you a variety of cooking and custom options to make meals on your time and in your way. If you stack the steamer on top of the inner pot, you can cook two meals simultaneously. You can cook, let’s say, a stew in the inner pot while you steam the vegetables above.
So, you can cook a wide variety of meals quicker, to save you time and with it, energy; and of course, money for that energy! Its impressive accessories package, meaning that you don’t have to buy anything extra, saves you even more time and money.
The 6-quart capacity model, that we tested and reviewed, is plenty big enough to cook a meal for a family of four. An 8-quart is also available for larger families or parties. However, a larger capacity also means that you can easily slide in bulky items like a rack of ribs or a whole crab, or simply make larger quantities of food to save you time later. This could also be more economical in the long run and provide further cost-saving.
Who’s It For?
Whether you’re an overwhelmed and rushed parent and/or an overworked and busy professional, you will probably appreciate and value any time saved in the kitchen. Maybe you follow a healthy diet, or at least would like to? Then, if you haven’t already, you should consider getting a multi-cooking device such as Yedi Pressure Cooker.
It provides a total package that does it all, and faster. Equipped with loads of features, this versatile appliance can shorten your cooking time by up to 70%, enhancing the richness and natural flavors of foods, and make it a lot easier for you to get a tasty meal on the table. Foods retain more of their nutrients and taste when cooked faster and using less liquid.
And as foods retain more nutrients with shorter cooking time, and using less oil or water, a healthier one too! Not only that, by providing temperatures higher than 212°F, pressure cooking can effectively eliminate harmful microorganisms.
This shorter cooking time results in an overall cooler temperature in the kitchen and saves energy. Not only because of the shorter cooking time but when cooking with more pots and pans on the stovetop, more heat rises from them and builds in the kitchen. Yedi Pressure Cooker instead retains the heat and steam, with none of it escaping to heat your kitchen.
You’ll feel more comfortable in a cooler kitchen, which is good for your pocket, saving you on energy bills, as well as the planet as global temperatures rise. And who doesn’t want that?
Or increased health and safety in the kitchen? Long gone are the days when stovetop pressure cookers could explode. A modern electrical model like Yedi Pressure Cooker has a long list of safety features, such as automatic steam venting and visible pressure indicators.
They’re also more versatile than their older predecessors. The Yedi, as we’ve seen, is in fact, a 9-in-1 multicooker; developed, designed, and built with more capabilities and functions, for greater convenience. You can cook a very wide variety of foods in numerous different ways. Sometimes at the same time as brilliant for one pot, or its two-pots, cooking. That’s far more efficient than using several pots on separate burners, and with it less washing up after.
You can also cook in different quantities. Yedi Pressure Cooker is available in six- and eight-quarts capacities, giving you flexibility depending on the necessity, or choice, of the amount of food that you prepare.
All of these benefits make it a product that could be for a wide variety of people. Not just for families, large or small. As it’s priced lower than many of its competitors and will make energy cost savings, it’s ideal for those with a smaller household budget. Or who live in a smaller home. As it’s electric and very portable, as well as clean and tidy, you can cook delicious meals in any room. You don’t even need a kitchen!
The preprogrammed digital controls provide maximum simplicity and convenience for beginners, and it’s dishwasher friendly and easy to clean.
In short, Yedi Pressure Cooker is for anyone who wants tasty, healthy, and fast cooking. And all of the many gains in benefits and savings in costs that it brings.

What We Don’t Like About Yedi Pressure Cooker
We were overall very impressed with this appliance, so our quibbles are relatively small ones.
Stirring is required, and a little bit of a hassle, when slow cooking. But that’s by no means unique to Yedi Pressure Cooker.
What might be is that we considered the lid to have a minor design or build faults. It could be improved with a little bit more care and attention.
Previous users have generally agreed that the Yedi Houseware Appliances website and mobile app for iOS and Android have errors, omissions, or typos. Also, they’re not that helpful regarding recipes. They almost always relate to Instant Pot models! Yedi should develop their own, unique ones to make their product more attractive and competitive against this bigger brand.
