This irreplaceable kitchen tool will free everyone—even beginners—from any fears of the pressure-cooking process. It’s simple-to-use. Chefs can sauté and brown vegetables and meats directly in the insert, then switch to pressure-cooking for maximum flavor.

Cooker features Low and High pressure settings, progress arrows to show when system is pressurizing, and a display to show remaining cooking time. Unit automatically switches to keep-warm function when cooking is complete, then cooks can release pressure naturally or with the quick-release option.

answer 1
In theory, the stove-top pressure cooker can be controlled instantly by turning on or off the gas. That's more or less possible with the All Clad, except instead of "turning up" or "down" the gas, you turn "on" or "off" the power. Technically, that would imply that you don't have the same control with the All Clad you'd have with a stove top. BUT, you don't really make many precise, minute, adjustments with a stove-top pressure cooker, do you? You have the lid on tight for obvious reasons with any pressure cooker, so it's hard to "see" what's cooking, so the need to make adjustments would likely be minimal.

That said, you can change cooking times on the fly. If you set it for 10 mins, say, and you decide you want it go for more, you can punch in 5 additional minutes, or whatever number you want. Similarly, you can abort at any time if you decide you want to stop the cooking.

So other than the apparent lack of direct control (which I don't really mind), the All Clad is very similar to the stove-top. BUT, there are many other features of the All Clad that make it far better than stove top: For example, stand-alone frees up the stove; the pot can come to the table if you want, the saute and brown features (and keep warm setting) add additional convenience that are all not as convenient in the conventional stove-top models.

I've never used a pressure cooker on a stove. But as a first time user of pressure cookers, this is SIMPLE to use. The unit contains a program which simplifies browing, sauteing, and general cooking at high pressure. I was initially relucant to spend this much but it is better than anything out there. For the stove top pressure cookers, I felt that I had to spend weeks just learning the basics. The unit makes using this technique fun.

"Any" is a tough question. But, I will say I've made a number of "standard pressure cooker recipes" in the All Clad that all came out fine. I've been able to skip some of the extra steps and just skip to the pressure cooking with good results. But again: this really depends on the recipe. If unsure, you might want to err on the lesser side (# of minutes) and if the food isn't done, bring it back up to pressure and cook a couple more minutes. I've experimented a lot, and I'm happy to say I have yet to have a bad outcome!

Question
Error code E3?
This cooker is great and I enjoy using it. But, lately, when I plug in the power cable I keep getting a continuous beep and a E3 on the status screen, making it unusable. This E3 error code is not documented anywhere in the instructional manual. Anyone know what's going on with my cooker?

Howard, I don't know if I can answer your question or not, but in googling "pressure cooker" and "E3" I found the following: "The pressure cooker is great for cooking some foods when it cooks. Unfortunately, there is an undocumented E3 error that is common on these units. I had to google the error to find out what was going on. There is a gasket that goes around the lid of the unit and if the gasket doesn't seal right, the E3 error comes up and the unit will not cook."

Let me note that the E3 info I read about was NOT for the All-Clad PC. However most, if not all, of these digital PCs are manufactured in Asia by just a few companies - these manufacturers literally make hundreds of digital PCs that are sold under various company names. It might be that the PC I read about and your All-Clad PC were manufactured by the same company. Lacking any better information, I'd make especially sure that the gasket for your PC is inserted within the lid properly and that it is perfectly clean. Also make sure there is no piece of food lodged in any of the safety mechanisms of the unit.

I'd also suggest that you contact All-Clad customer service. It's possible that you have a defective unit. If so All-Clad should take it back as you can't have had it very long - it's a pretty new product.

answer 2
I wouldn't. This is a pressure cooker which means cooking with extreme steam -- a moisture process. You don't "fry" chicken with steam. However, you could in theory use the brown or saute feature and cook thinner chicken pieces, perhaps, but I'm not sure if you'd want all the spattering hot fat in this device. In any case, you wouldn't use the pressure features for frying chicken.

You could also brown chicken with the cooker, remove the meat, prepare a broth or stew, pressure-cook this and return the chicken pieces after the stew is cooked for a nice combo (e.g., chicken cacciatore, chicken soup, etc.) -- but that's not what you were asking, I think.

This product is not designed to be used as a deep fryer and doing so could prove to be dangerous. You can brown your chicken using the browning setting on this product, but if you want to fry the chicken you would get the best results from a cast iron skillet or an electric deep fryer. I have attached some products that would work better for frying foods.

answer 4
You CANNOT fry chicken UNDER PRESSURE with this All Clad Electric Pressure Cooker. Not only that, attempting to do so could be dangerous. You can use the browning setting in the unit and "fry" chicken without using the lid though I'm not sure you'd be happy with the results. I think you'd get better results simply using a cast iron skillet, stainless steel frying pan or electric deep fryer for making your fried chicken.

DeniseP,
Now that SLT Customer Support has responded, you know that you should not use this All-Clad Pressure Cooker for canning. However you and other potential purchasers should also note that its "High Pressure" setting is only 10.2 psi. That is nowhere near the industry standard 15 psi. Most pressure cooking cookbooks assume the industry standard high pressure setting of 15 psi for their recipes. Hence except for whatever recipe booklet comes with this pressure cooker, you're likely to have to make significant timing adjustments for any recipe you make from one of the numerous pressure cooking cookbooks available.

Most of these cookbooks also assume a pressure cooker size of 6 quarts as well. This All-Clad is only 4 quarts thus likely also requiring recipe ingredient quantity adjustments as well.

If it's an electric pressure cooker you have in mind, there are some models where the high pressure for the unit does reach 15 psi. And to be perfectly frank, the prices on these units are considerably less than the All-Clad. The All-Clad is by far, the most expensive electric PC available. Is it worth it? Only you can answer that question for yourself. Given the lack of an industry standard high pressure of 15 psi it is not worth it to me.

I'm not suggesting that you do not purchase this All-Clad Electric PC; just be aware of its limitations before doing so. Pressure cooking is a wonderful way to cook -- I just want to see everyone happy with the equipment they purchase to do it.

Denise P,
I’ve been watching for a response to your question from Sur La Table but perhaps no one from the company has seen it. I am not associated with Sur La Table or All-Clad and I’m not an expert on this product, but I can at least speculate based on knowledge of other pressure cookers. If Sur La Table doesn’t respond soon, you might contact All-Clad. However there’s little info on their site about this unit.

As you probably know, the industry standard for high pressure cooking is 15 psi and for low pressure cooking it’s 8psi. Some electric pressure cookers meet those standards but a number do not. The All-Clad Electric has both high and low pressure settings, but there is no information as to what psi these settings equate to.

The All-Clad Electric is only a 4 qt. pressure cooker with an exterior (presumably) height of only 12”. The depth of the interior pot would be even less. Given the small size and capacity of this unit, I’d think it is highly unlikely that it could be used for even small batch pressure canning. While this PC might meet your pressure cooking needs, I suspect purchasing a separate pressure canner would be desirable if you wish to can. Most of those I’ve seen have a minimum size of 10 quarts.
