The MaxiMatic epc-808 comes with 14 functions that include

  • Reheat

  • White rice
  • Wild rice and grains
  • Vegetables and fish
  • Desserts

  • Chicken

The Cooker is 8 quarts and comes with a non stick cooking pot, but there are stainless steel cooking pots available.
You can still use it for your customized cooking of course ant the cooking time can be set between o and 99 minutes.
The feature that it starts up again after short power outage is something we have not seen on any other pressure cooker.
 

Material

(Back to Top)
The use material for the inner-pot is probably aluminum like most other pressure cookers we reviewed.
We could not find it anywhere but we read that it is a very heavy pan.
 

Safety features

(Back to Top)
The lid is locked when the cooker is under pressure and can not be opened until the pressure is low enough.
This is a very safe feature that does not exist on a lot of other pressure cookers.
The standard pressure release valve that comes with every cooker seems to work very well according to the reviews we read.

CustomerReviews of the MaxiMatic EPC-808

(Back to Top)

“We bought a bunch of these (10) for myself and for gifts. Most (8) have been wonderful and we love them. two have had to be returned as they didn’t work. Amazon replaced those and now we have all 10 working well. everyone loves them. One can make meals with these that would be difficult with other cookers, or very time consuming…(read more here: MaxiMatic EPC-808 reviews)”

“First of all, every time I opened the lid it kept to pop up and could not put back or lock it. But after few uses it is ok now. I guess it was jut too tight before using it. Also when I cooked first time I pressed the preset button and the start button but it ended after 5 minutes. Thank goodness to Q&A there was a same problem someone had and I could fix it. When I cooked second time I used the timer because meat was more than 3lbs and everything went well until releasing time. It took more than 25 minutes although the instruction said usually takes 10 to 15 minutes. Otherwise meat is so tender and fall off the bone. I’m so glad that I bought this pressure cooker. Just HSN has the same product and it is much much cheaper….(read more here: MaxiMatic EPC-808 review)”

Our opinion of the MaxiMatic EPC-808 pressure cooker

(Back to Top)
After going through a lot of comments it is not easy to come to a clear advise on the MaxiMatic EPC-80 pressure cooker.
The average rating is pretty good with 4.4 but we read in the lower ratings that there were some problems and the product had to be returned a lot.
Customer service also get some mixed ratings and go from great to extreme bad.
It seems that this pressure cooker when it works does a great job and the feature that you can not open the lid unless the pressure is low enough is something we did not find on a lot of other pressure cookers.
Our concern is the relative high number of lower reviews that complain about the cooker not working the first time or after using it a few time. This is about a 15% of the buyers and this is higher than any other product we reviewed.
.
There should be a stainless steel inner pot available and we are looking for a link and will add it as soon as we can find it.
As always we recommend that as soon as you use this pressure cooker and are not completely satisfied to send it back and ask for a replacement or your money back.
The advantage of a digital electric pressure cooker over a stove top one is that you don not have to watch it and just set and forget. The epc-808 beeps when the cooking time is up and the food is ready.
