My Rating:


Creating appealing and nutritionally balanced homemade meals is easy with the Farberware 7-In-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker. This powerful little appliance utilizes the power of steam to pressure cook, slow cook, steam, simmer, brown, sauté, and warm foods in a fraction of the time it would take with conventional cooking methods.

Homemade Lentil Soup








Because this appliance uses steam, your foods remain moist and retain flavor and nutrients. Find this delicious lentil soup recipe here.


  • With its built in safety features, this pressure cooker was created with your safety in mind. A self-locking lid, which forms a tight seal around the rim of the pot, remains sealed until pressure level reaches a safe point.
  • A tiny but effective pressure release valve closes to allow pressure to build up inside the appliance and opens automatically to release pressure in case of excessive pressure build-up.
  • The lid has been fashioned with extra large carrying handles, making it simple to transport the pot without risking the chance of getting burned.


The Farberware 7-In-One Programmable Pressure Cooker is made from quality stainless steel, which means it has been built to last.

There are 9 easy-to-use preset cooking functions, which allow you to make homemade meals 70% faster than conventional cooking.A large LED display is easy to read and understand. Clean-up is a snap because the removable nonstick-coated cooking pot is dishwasher safe.

My Review

A majority of customer reviews for this model are favorable; however, the one complaint that seems to be prevalent in most reviews is a poor written manual.

When I opened my box, I was impressed by the cooker’s modern design. It measures 13 inches in height and it weighs slightly over 12 pounds, making it lighter than my crock-pot. I was able to move it around with little effort.

One of my favorite features of this appliance is its “one stop shop” functionality; you can use it as a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, and a steamer. In addition, you can simmer, brown, sauté, and warm your foods.

My One Disappointment

Like many others, I found the instruction manual to be lacking information. Figuring out how to use it as a slow cooker has been by trial and error. I would have preferred if the user’s manual would have told me the pressure settings for each preset function. If you are trying to cook something not listed in the manual, it can be difficult to figure out which preset function to use.

Final Thoughts:

All in all, this appliance makes delicious homemade food. Whether you work out of the house all day or you are a stay at home mom, the last thing you want to do is stand over a hot stove to prepare dinner. The 7-In-One Programmable Pressure Cooker makes meal preparation and clean-up a breeze.

  1. I just got a 7 in 1 pressure cooker as a gift. I wonder how to use it manually for cooking beef. I tried but I have to use the program 3 times because it was not throughly cooked. Please advise some tricks for using the time manually. I feel overwhelmed because I can only use the previous set functions.

    1. Hi Maria,
      Thank you for stopping by! I totally understand about being overwhelmed. I was, too, at first. Here is what I do: for cooking a whole piece of beef, I use the roast/sear button. Make sure you have closed and locked your lid. Then select the roast/sear button, and then select the cooking time button. Once you have selected the cooking time button, you hit the + or – to reach your desired cooking time. Then select start. There is also a Facebook Group page with all kinds of wonderful tips for this product. It’s not my personal group, but I do belong to it and I have gotten some great tips and advice. The URL for the page is: https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=farberware%207-in-1%20programmable%20pressure%20cooker%20users and the name of the group is Farberware 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker Users. It’s a closed group, so will have to request to join. The page admin. usually accepts membership within 24 hours. I hope this has been helpful to you. If you have other questions, please don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments or you may contact me directly at Kathy@inabbaskitchen.com.

  2. I really love your site…it’s all the things I love…God, Cooking, Weight loss. Everything is well organized and clean. It has very detailed information. I enjoyed my tour here.

  3. This is actually perfect timing but I might just have to buy one of these. I used to have one, but not sure what happened to it. Now, I have all new appliances in my home and getting ready to sell it. Well, I want to keep everything brand new looking, so afraid to use anything. I thought I could use a crock pot to do a lot of cooking in, but that is sometimes consuming. This is a wonderful idea though!

    1. Hi Matt’s Mom,

      I also have a crock pot, and yes, it takes longer. The beauty of the pressure cooker is that it takes less time. Of course, the 7-in-one does have a crock pot setting if I still want to slow cook something. thanks for stopping by!


  4. Ki Kathy,
    I own a Faberware 7 in 1 and absolutely love it. It’s a working person dream. It’s so easy to use and you can prepare just about anything that you can think of. It’s also great for preparing and taking your favorite recipes to parties. Just cook and carry. And cleanup, no problem. Thank you for your review on this product.

    1. Hi Jerome,

      You just taught me something new. I wouldn’t have considered cook and carry. The next time I need to make something for a church pot lock, I’m going to do exactly what you have suggested. Thanks for sharing your useful tip with us.


  5. Hmmmmm I am a bit wary to purchase a product that I don’t have much prior knowledge of its use if its user manual isn’t up to par. This being said, I do like your review and it touched on a bunch of great points. That All American 921 pressure cooker looks very interesting. Do you have any knowledge of that device?

    Thanks for the great article 🙂

    1. Hi Katie,
      Thanks for your kind words. To answer your question honestly, I have not personally used the All American 921 Pressure cooker. However, I have researched through many customer reviews. Nearly 5000 Amazon customers have given this product a 5/5 rating for canning as well as for pressure cooking meals. It is more expensive than the Farberware 7-In-1 Programmable Pressure cooker; however, it is constructed to do more. One of the unfavorable comments about the All American is that it fails to mention it is not suitable for glass cook tops, as it can damage the glass. It also weighs more than the 7-In-1, which might make it difficult to handle for some. customers absolutely love it for its canning capabilities.

  6. Hi!

    I love how you include your faith in with your passion. It’s so cool when those two things align! When did you start cooking? I am about to get married myself and looking for some oriental dishes like you have offered, but don’t own a crockpot currently. Do you really suggest buying one and not cooking the regular way? What are some of the pros of having a crockpot in the first place?

    1. Hi!

      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I started cooking when I was a young girl. I used to spend the summers with my grandparents and my grandmother and I would spend time in the kitchen. I would also help my mom prepare dinners too. I love traditional cooking methods, but I also love using my crockpot. When I was teaching all day, it was great coming home to a hot pot of soup or stew that had been cooking in the crockpot all day. It saved a lot of time. Throw everything in the pot, set it and forget it until it was time to serve. I love my pressure cooker even more because cooking meals has never been easier. Clean up is a breeze because there is only one pot to clean. The Farberware 7-In-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker has a “delayed start” function, which enables you to prepare your meal and delay the cooking start. When your cooking time has finished, the appliance automatically switches to “warm”. Your food is hot and ready when you want it. I would definitely recommend putting this on your gift registry! 🙂 You will be glad that you did. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I wish you many long years together.


  7. I been looking for pressure cooker for a while and came across your site! This cooker sounds great except the manual part turns me off as a new user probably needs more help in the settings. I am also looking at instant pot too as it seems to be very popular now. How would you compare between this and instant pot?

    1. Hi Wendy,

      Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I don’t own an Instant Pot; however, the reviews I have read make this a better choice for the person who is just beginning their experience with pressure cooking. There is much more help available and tons of recipes out there. I like my 7-In-One pressure cooker, but like I mentioned, the user manual isn’t very helpful. Happy cooking!
