The Hamilton Beach is a multi–function pressure cooker with steam release button safely releases steam away from hands. In addition to fast pressure–cooking, the Hamilton Beach multi–function pressure cooker has true slow technology, which gradually raises the temperature just like a traditional slow cooker to prevent overcooking so that slow cooker recipes come out as expected. And it does so much more! Besides pressure–cooking and slow-cooking with confidence, The Hamilton Beach multi-function pressure cooker has preset programs for meat, poultry, rice, steaming, beans, whole grains, casseroles, eggs, and soup. There’s even a Brown\sauté button that lets you add flavour to meals by Browning and sautéing food in the Stainless Steel pot.
