    13. If you need a pressure cooker, as well as a great rice cooker, Cosori has your back.

    Promising Review: "Love, love, love this pressure cooker. I'm 71-years-old and have several electronic pressure cookers that are larger, so I don't leave one on the counter. I received this four days ago, and it has stayed on my counter. I have used it three times. On the first day I cooked a frozen chicken breast and made soup. The next day was rice, with leftover diced pork chops and peas. The pork got so tender! This cooker is so easy to use. I really like the lid staying on when opened and the way the drip cup just slides on and off with ease. The control menu is easy to use and the steam release button keeps your hand from burning." –Loulou9
