Making Cooking a Breeze with the Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker

Posted on Mar 9 2017 - 12:08am by Susan Bewley

Looking for an amazing, easy to use pressure cooker to make cooking easier? See what we think of the Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker here!

Do you use an electric pressure cooker at home? This past year, I have been all about cooking from home and using an electric pressure cooker I purchased over the holidays. I will freely admit, I have a love and hate relationship with my cooker (which I bought on the recommendation of a friend). While I won’t say the brand, cooking is sometimes a major frustration since I have to constantly babysit the pot to see if actually builds pressure, sometimes taking more time to cook than if I prepared them the usual way. Waiting for the stupid little bobber to come up and pressurize has been something we have learned we have to plan around in our house, with me knowing I cannot step out of the kitchen for any reason until it pops, in fear of not being there when it fails to pressurize again. For this reason, I have never had the full out love for the pot that many of my blogging friends have with their pots.

In all honesty, since the first pressure failure ruined a meal, and each time I’ve had to reset the cooker and hope, I’ve seriously considered buying an old fashioned stove-top pressure cooker and giving up on having an electric one. It actually wasn’t until two weeks ago that I finally had hope again – a company I absolutely LOVE, Fagor, showed off their multi-cooker in an email – the LUX Electric Multi-Cooker. After looking at some of their specs online and watching some videos, this seemed to be the pressure cooker I had looking for, solving the pressure problem and many of the smaller issues we were having with ours. After speaking with them, I was excited when they offered send me a complimentary multi-cooker for review. Once it arrived, I couldn’t wait to get it open and try it out!

Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker: What is It?

Want to make cooking so much easier in your own household? If so, we think you will love the Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker. This innovative cooker makes cooking so much easier by not just making cooking faster, it can help declutter your kitchen by putting four popular kitchen devices into one: a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, and even yogurt maker! Not only does it have a variety of awesome setting options, but was recently selected as the Best of the Test in the Emerging Cookware category by Good Housekeeping Magazine. After going through rigorous tests alongside competing units, here is what they had to say:

“It delivered superb results on every sitting we tested”

It isn’t too surprising that people love the Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker. It has a variety of features that make cooking great for any family, including self-locking lid while under pressure, automatic pressure release settings, 4 digit LED screen, soft touch controls, and of course, a dishwasher safe, ceramic removable pot that evenly heats to make cooking even more efficient.

Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker: Our Thoughts

I will freely admit, I was extremely excited for the Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker to arrive. Having had a great experience with my Fagor juicer, I was expecting great things from my MultiCooker. While I haven’t tested all of the functionality just yet, I love that everything I have tried works as advertised. Having something to replace my broken rice cooker, be a slow cooker, and (of course) pressure cooker seemed amazing to me, especially since it has better temperature control from what I was reading than most slow cookers. What I cared about the most, however, is the pressure cooker, which claims to cook 70% faster and (as with all pressure cooking) retain more vitamins and nutrients compared to other cooking styles.

What I loved the most about this cooker was that it was extremely easy to use; it really was set it and your done, unlike my other multi-pot. As well, everything turned out perfect, making cooking very stress-free without the hassle that comes with my other multi-cooking pot. Honestly, if you are planning on getting a pressure cooker, buy the Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker. It will make cooking so much easier and allow you to get rid of so many other small appliances in your house, which is much needed in our own home with our very small kitchen. Based on my own experience, I am delighted to give the Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker an A+ rating and highly recommend it to all my readers!

    I own an Instant Pot but this sounds like a good investment for those who don’t own one. Sounds like a great cooker and may even think of getting one so I can have an extra cooker.

    I have used a slow cooker but not a pressure cooker. I would love to have an instant pot to try it.

      I think you would love having a pressure cooker. It is pretty much like having a very fast slow cooker. I have the Instant Pot and the Fagor – I think the Fagor is much better!

    I may have to check the Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker out. I have been looking and reading about these. This is by far the best review I have read on any brand. Thanks!

  13. Margaret Appel March 9, 2017 at 8:24 pm - Reply

    I have an electric pressure cooker, it’s fine for making stew, but I just haven’t found a whole lot of other things to do with it. I often rely on my stove-top pressure cooker when making rice or beans. I know how long I have to hang in the kitchen while it does it’s thing before I can shut off the stove & set it aside to finish cooking. I’d love to try the Fagor multicooker because it’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, & yogurt maker all in one. To me that just sounds awesome! Thanks for the review!

    I could really use one of these in my kitchen! I like how you said that it allows the food to keep more of the vitamins and nutrients as compared to other cooking styles. That’s awesome!

    I won an Instant Pot (which is on the way) so It will be interesting to compare to the Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker. I have a small rice cooker I’ll give to my daughter since I won’t need it, now.

    I’ve never used a multicooker, but I’ve heard great things about them. I like that this one has a removable pot and that it comes in 3 shades!

    I’ve never used a pressure cooker. I’ve heard that you don’t even have to thaw meat, just stick it in frozen. That’d be perfect because I always forget to pull meat from the freezer.

    Omg this thing is awesome,it does everything for you,just pop in your food set the time etc and you’re good to go,so cool for homemade stews or corned beef,id love to own one.

    I have bad memories of the old stove-top pressure cookers but like the way they cook things, so the electric ones really appeal to me. The idea of being able to use it for multiple functions is a great bonus!

    I am interested in the yogurt maker on this. I also would like the pressure cooker to keep the goodness of our food locked in.

    I would absolutely love to win this, I have wanted one but we just got custody of our 3 yr old grandson and the attorney fees ate up quite alot of our savings. I do alot of cooking in large quantities so that I can freeze for a later date, so this would be a fantastic cooker.

    Everyone talks about their (other brand) of cooker but I have not jumped aboard yet. I have used regular pressure cookers, but eventually the seal deteriorated and you are left with a basic cooking pot. I am wondering if this will work for a large family.

    • Susan Bewley March 13, 2017 at 1:05 pm - Reply

      My mom used the same size pot to cook for six of us growing up. I chose the 6 qt one because it is only the two of us (and cooks enough leftovers for multiple meals for both of us). If I had a larger family though, I would likely go with the 8 qt pot.

    Wow, I need to get my mom one of these for her birthday which is coming up! She loves cooking in the pressure cooker, slow cooker and she got some new sort of cooker that like cooks with hot air or something… I have no idea, sounds super weird to me, but she would love this all in one! Especially since the seal is no good on her pressure cooker!

    I’ve been interested in one of these for awhile, but they looked kind of complicated. I’m glad that you think it is extremely easy to use, because that kind of eases my concern.

I think in my childhood years, we had an old fashioned pressure cooker and it was always so fun to place bets on when the togger would pop! I’m so happy you were able to replace the one that was giving you problems. Sometimes cooking can give me anxiety and what you recounted would have sent me running to the woods!

    I bought my wife an electric pressure cooker for Christmas this year and she loves it. The one we have is an 8 quart size and I would recommend getting the larger sized one to have enough room for larger sized meals and whole chickens, etc. They are really easy to use and it really infuses the flavors into the meats and veggies in a short time.

    I never realized that there was such a cooker. I use my slow cooker pretty much daily. I had seen recipes that require a pressure cooker, so was contemplating getting one of those too. As for the rice cooker part of this, that too is something I wasn’t aware of (not the electric ones)… I’m seriously considering getting one of these.. This is great!!!
