Fagor LUX Multi-Cooker – Pros & Cons
In GoodHousekeeping lab tests, the Fagor LUX was rated Best of the Test.
- It came up to pressure in less than 32 minutes, 15 minutes faster than the Instant Pot. The pressure drops in 3 minutes in quick-release mode.
- The Fagor LUX Multi-Cooker is one of only a few multi-cookers that features a yogurt maker.
- Rice is perfectly cooked and in brown-mode, meat is evenly browned.
- It beeps when it reaches pressure and the timer starts counting down, a feature that other multi-cookers don’t have.
- Keep-Warm mode is automatically switched on up to 12 hours when the cooking cycle is done.
- The Time-Delay function can be set for up to 6 hours.
- Controls are intuitive and easy to use and the owners manual is well written and easy to follow.
- The removable blue ceramic inner pot is easily cleaned.
- More expensive than the Instant Pot.
- It comes with a blue non-stick ceramic inner cooking pot. Although there is nothing wrong with ceramic, a stainless steel cooking pot is much better for sautéing and browning. Also, even the toughest non-stick coatings eventually end up with surface scratching. If you want a stainless steel pot you can buy it separately for an additional cost.
- The Instant Pot’s handle functions as a lid holder. The Fagor LUX does not have this feature meaning you have to set the lid down on the counter.
- The Fagor LUX Multi-Cooker does not come with any accessories, for example, a stainless steel steam rack (trivet).
