I wanted a pressure cooker but didn’t have a brand in mind. It was my birthday so i put a bug in my husband’s ear and he got me a della. It was cheaper than some others and i’m positive that was his driving force behind this particular brand purchase. First thing i noticed there was absolutely zero instructions with the cooker. A list of dos and don’ts, parts list and troubleshooting suggestions was the full extent of the ‘user manual’. Had to buy a cookbook to even know where the hell to start with this thing. It’s been a few weeks and i still am learning little tricky things about it. Oh it works just fine now that i know a few things, but it would have been so much better to have a user manual that didn’t suck.
After 2 month it just stop working, use it mostly for soup 4-5 times per week, and it just stop working last week…bad than the brand i bought in china.
Not very good instructions on how to use the pressure cooker.

“User manual is terrible
, after 2 month it just stop working,
, Don’t buy this yet!
I like to use a stove top pressure to cook with and have always wanted an electrical one. This has been a blessing to me. I have cooked a few roasts in this and each time the roast turns out fantastic, a huge roast cooks in 30 min. This saves so much time for the single parent who still wants the kids to have a nice meal with as little time as possible. Great item i am in love with it. Materials seem to be of great quality and the cooker is very easy to use. It did come with a book to walk you thru different features but it seems to be easy to figure out on your own. Overall i am very pleased with this pressure cooker it has met my expectations and then some. I received a discount for testing and reviewing purposes. This is my honest unbiased opinion and have come to this conclusion by using this cooker myself.
I am using it for the first time so i cannot speak to how long it will function. I hate the sticker on the side that is mostly pointless and does not easily remove. I double hate that the instruction book is absolutely pointless. I basically used what i read in reviews and then guessed the rest. Right now, it is displaying bb or 66. I have absolutely no idea what that means. It probably won’t last long because i will trash it due to frustration. 5/11/2017 update – i have been using this cooker since i originally wrote the review and my opinion has changed from 2 stars to 4. I still believe the instructions could have been better but with time, i have figured out everything that i need to know. The pressure cooker is still working great and has not given me any trouble, even when i spaced out and dumped water in the bottom of the machine instead of in the non-stick pan.
. After just a few uses my cooker seems to be dead. No lights on the control panel at all. I have checked and the outlet is working. I am letting it rest unplugged and hoping for a miracle. If it comes back to life i will update my review. So wishing i hadn’t bought this a week before the prime day event. I could have been one of 215,000 happy owners of the other brandedited to add: i was able to get a refund on my defective cooker and did not have to pay the $47 wanted by the post office to return it. Like the company but cannot recommend the cooker.
I like this pressure cooker honest the instructions suck. There are no clear directions with it. I had to read amazon reviews to figure out how to use the thing. Once you figure it out though it works great.
My daughter in law loved this cooker and she received it in time for christmas.
I ordered this della© 8-in-1 multi-functional programmable pressure cooker etl ul csa, 6 qt, 1000-watt because i have been watching all those infomercials on tv and i wanted to try one out. To date i’ve cooked 3 meals in it a frozen 3 1/2 lb boneless beef roast and i mean rock hard out of the deep freezer. I put it in for 1 hour at that point i added the potatoes carrots and let it cook for 15 more minutes. When it came it was like it was in a slow cooker all day the roast just flaked apart moist not dried out like cooking in the oven. My second meal was a 5 lb chicken i put the chicken i put my spices on the chicken and it will only let you cook chicken for 30 min which i did and the chicken was not done i put it in for 20 min more and and it was done’ my 3rd meal was ribs i first loaded the ribs in the pressure cooker cooked them for 15 min then i put a large bottle of my homemade barbeque sauce on them and cooked them for 20min more on keep pressure and they turned out perfect. This pressure cooker is all and more than i expected the only thing i wish it had was a small cook book that came along with it. But you can get most times on the internet the food turns out great in 1/4 the time with 1/4 the energy. And the clean up is super easy how can you go wrong.
It’s a wonderful pressure cooker, the downfall that no instructions come with the product.
