MaxiMatic EPC-807 Features
As aforementioned, there are some pretty big features that firmly put this pressure cooker into position as one of the best options you can buy. We definitely think that some of these features really do sell the pressure cooker, including some of the following.
6 Additional Functions – There’s a good chance that you’re buying this pressure cooker because well, it’s a pressure cooker. But something we love even more about the product is the fact that it offers a range of additional functions, 6 in total. Those functions include the ability to cook rice, potatoes, meat, beans, soup and also browning your food. Anyone who already owns a pressure cooker will know that this is an impressive range of features.
It might be the case that you don’t actually have any need for the additional features and functionality offered by this pressure cooker, but considering you’re getting them as a free addition, it really can’t be a bad thing. If you do need access to these additional functions, it means that you won’t have to spend any extra cash on an additional piece of equipment. MaxiMatic may not be a well-known name, but they do clearly care about value for money.
Up-to 9 Hour Timer – At the end of an incredibly long day, the last thing that you feel like doing is getting home and cooking a big meal. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could just leave that meal cooking throughout the day so that it’s ready to serve by the time you get home?
This particular pressure cooker from MaxiMatic features a 9 hour timer. It’s pretty common for pressure cookers to allow you to start cooking in the morning and your meal is ready by the time you get home. In fact, this pressure cooker allows you to leave your food cooking for anything up to 9 hours. There is a feature that will likely also come in handy when you have guests round for dinner and need to keep them entertained whilst you get on with the cooking. MaxiMatic have clearly thought of it all with this pressure cooker.
Attractive and Durable Design – A pressure cooker is never going to the most attractive piece of cooking equipment in your kitchen. However, we feel that the EPC-807 from MaxiMatic does a fairly good job when it comes to combining attractiveness and durability in terms of design. As far as pressure cookers go that is.
The pressure cooker comes with a pretty shiny exterior that looks great in your kitchen and is also pretty easy to wipe clean. In fact, we’d imagine that the design of this pressure cooker would actually look best at home in a professional kitchen environment. If you’re looking to bring a little of that professional aesthetic to your home, you’ll definitely find this pressure cooker does a good job. What’s more, the durable material is great when working with warm temperatures and can easily be wiped off when you’ve finished cooking.
Automatic Cooking Resumption – The final feature that we’re detailing around this pressure cooker is a pretty unique one that we don’t seem many pressure cookers including. The MaxiMatic EPC-807 actually has an automatic resumption of cooking. This means that when the power goes out and your food stops cooking, it will automatically resume when the power comes back on.
This is especially useful if you’re at work and the power cuts out during the day. You’ll come home and find that your meal continued cooking after power was resumed. This means that your meal hasn’t been completely spoilt by the power outage.This functionality coupled with the 9 hour timer included with this pressure cooker allow for a pretty effective cooking experience for those out of the house all day.
MaxiMatic EPC-807 Pros
In terms of the reasons why you should buy the MaxiMatic Pressure Cooker, there’s a number of pros, including the following:
- Designed to be a pressure cooker that you can leave to comfortably cook whilst you’re out of the house. This means that you can start your meal cooking when you leave the house in the morning and it’ll be ready to serve when you get home. This is also helped by automatic resumption if the power goes out during the day.
- One of the most attractive designs that we’ve seen of any pressure cooker on the market. Looks and feels like a professional product that you’d see in a professional kitchen environment, plus it’s also incredibly durable to keep clean.
- As with most pressure cookers, you’ll find that this product includes plenty of functionality that allows you to change how long and how your food is cooked. However, we’d argue that the cooking options provided by this product are considerably more complex and in-depth than some other cookers.
MaxiMatic EPC-807 Cons
Regrettably, there’s also a few cons around this pressure cooker from MaxiMatic that you’ll need to take into consideration when deciding whether to buy or not:
- Considering the 8 Quart storage capacity of this pressure cooker, we would have expected to see it considerably cheaper. If you’re spending this much on a pressure cooker, you might want a bit more storage space for your money.
In conclusion, whilst this is a fairly expensive pressure cooker, it’s also one that’s packed full of exciting features. MaxiMatic may not be a name that you’ve heard of in the pressure cooker space, but you’ll be singing their praises after a short time with this product.
