Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.Living Well Products. Montel Williams recently launched a new line of products that includes fitness, nutraceuticals, and housewares, with a kitchen line of small appliances consisting of a personal blender, a pressure cooker, a 3-in-1 multi cooker, a microwave cooker, a frozen dessert maker, and a smokeless portable grill.
pressure cooker from Montel Williams features 12 preset cooking options: Soup/Stew, Canning, Slow Cooker, Beans/Lentils, Fish/Vegetables, Steam, Chicken, Meat and Keep Warm. It has a stainless steel house with a non-stick, double coated, aluminum 6 quart cooking pot. The pressure cooker also has a unique displacement pressure release system, plus a programmable and easy-to-read LED display. It even includes a spatula, wide spoon, measuring cup, steam tray, and a recipe book with Montel’s Secret Family recipes.
pressure cooker can be a bit nerve-wracking for some, especially when you hear the pressure building up, but as long as you are following directions, pressure cooking is safe and provides delicious meals in a fraction of the time. When I started looking through recipes, I was really excited to see one for making hard-boiled eggs.
pressure cooker page, using the download button. I did find a small error in the recipe, which I resolved and corrected (see below), to make the most perfect hard-boiled eggs I've ever eaten.
1 ½ cups of Water
Large bowl filled halfway with ice and water (ice bath)
1. Place the Inner Pot inside the Pressure Cooker.
2. Place Steam Rack inside Inner Pot.
3. Place water and eggs inside the Inner Pot.
4. Place lid on Pressure Cooker and lock into place.
5. Push RICE/RISOTTO button and set timer for 6 minutes. *Error: the rice/risotto button will cook for ten minutes. The adjust button only allows you to go up in minutes, not down. Instead, push the BEANS/LENTILS button (which is 5 minutes) the add 1 minute using the time adjustment button.
6. When the timer reaches 0, the unit will beep. Release the steam to depressurize and carefully remove lid.
7. Carefully remove the eggs (the included wide spoon was perfect for this step) and place into ice bath.
8. Allow the eggs to cool in the ice bath for a few minutes, then peel.
The eggs come out absolutely perfect, not overcooked or undercooked, plus they peel much more easily than any hard-boiled eggs we've ever made on our stovetop. Delicious!
