    Trying to buy a multipurpose cooker for college

    Primal Fuel
    At first, I was planning on just buying a rice cooker, slow cooker, and steamer. However, I've looked into things and am now thinking about buying an "all in one" cooker.

    I'm trying to find a high pressure pot that can also slow cook, cook rice, and steam. Does anyone have some suggestions? Thanks!
    feel free to take a look at my journal!

    I *love* my Zojirushi Fuzzy Logic rice cooker. It can also make pilafs, chilis, soups, oatmeal, etc. They are not cheap, but the quality is worth it. Not very primal, though. Rice? Beans? Oatmeal?

    A pressure cooker is probably your best bet because it will cook the meats quickly and well. I have a Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker that I also love. 7qt. It will also cook the rices, beans, chili but will allow you to cook an entire chicken for chicken soup in the winter in under an hour. You cannot just plug it in and walk away. That might be a problem. You need a stove top and you have to attend to it. Meals cook in minutes...

    Amazon.com plus the Miss Vickie's pressure cooking cookbook and you are good to go! Make the most of college and have fun!

    The Imusa 5qt electric got the best reviews in a Good Housekeeping article as well as the Cuisinart CPC-600. Those are programmables.

    Oh, my roommate bought one when we first moved to college, that thing was awesome! i think he got it off amazon, but I can't be sure. Also, check Asian markets, they tend to have some if it's a good market.

    Are you sure it's allowed? I know a lot of dorms and colleges don't allow these appliances inside dorms. If you must get one, I recommend the Tiger brand of cooker/steamers, and yes, Asian stores are your best bet for these things.

    Stephan Guyenet at Whole Health Source wrote a review of the Instant Pot you linked. I've considered buying one too. The selling point for me is the stainless steel insert. I would love to get something like this to replace my crock pot.

    Ok... I hate kitchen gadgetry and that thing sounds AMAZING... and I may have to have one.
