The appliance that is just a slow cooker is now technology of yesterday thanks to the rise in popularity of the electric all-in-one cooker (pressure cooker, slow cooker, and more). And while the famous Instant Pot is all the rage, I present to you an appliance that’s a notch better: the Fagor LUX Electric Multi Cooker.

Fagor LUX Electric Multi-Cooker Review
I was very thankful when the opportunity to review the Fagor LUX 8-quart Electric Multi-Cooker was presented to me. And I am glad that this particular brand came my way because I honestly like its features better than the ones that the Instant Pot boasts.
The very first feature that caught my eye about this cooker was that the cooking pot was ceramic nonstick coated. The fact that they have ceramic nonstick coating is important to me as this is a healthy alternative to regular nonstick materials.
I also love that the LUX has extra safety features that the Instant Pot does not. These features include a locking lid that cannot open unless pressure is released and an automatic pressure release when cooking time is up. I still try to keep my kids well out of the kitchen while it is running, but I am grateful for these advanced safety features.
One of the first things I made in the LUX was my favorite THM E meal of Wicked White Chili (found in the first THM cookbook). This is a slow cooker meal and it was done in about an hour with the LUX! This speed seriously impressed me, especially because I used partially frozen chicken breasts. I also like that it reaches pressure faster than the Instant Pot (by 15 minutes according to Good Housekeeping) as this saves even more time.
Overall, the things I love most about the LUX are as follows:
- reaches pressure and cooks fast
- holds a lot (I received the 8 quart and my family eats a lot so we need every inch of its space!)
- takes up less space than my big slow cooker
- great safety features
- dishwasher safe cooking pot
- has functions where you can sauté and brown foods before setting it to pressure or slow cook, which means FEWER DISHES TO WASH!
Huge thanks to our sponsor Fagor!
