The small kitchen appliance 670041880 is an 8 quart multi-cooker made by Fagor America. This little device is like 4 gadgets wrapped up in one; pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker and yogurt maker.
I love appliances that have multiple functions. Why? Because they leave a smaller footprint. When you have limited countertop space, you have to wisely choose your devices. This model is priced competitively with the other pressure cookers in its class.
We’ve researched for you to find out all of the juicy details on this handy small kitchen appliance.
One Appliance To Replace Many
The feature-rich Fagor America pressure cooker has dimensions of 16 inches x 13 inches x 13 inches and weighs 18 pounds. The time delay function lets you delay the start of your cooking for up to 6 hours. All you need to do is coordinate your multi-cooker to your recipe cooking times and you’re in business. You won’t have to worry about your food getting cold before you are able to eat it. The keep warm setting keeps your food warm for as long as 12 hours. You can even make yogurt in this thing.
The rice cooker function is very convenient. Remembering how to cook the different types of rice can be tricky. Brown rice can take more than an hour to cook. Who has time to wait around while brown rice cooks? Your rice cooker can be set to start cooking your rice while you are away from home.
The Pressure cooker function is great for cooking all kinds of foods like this delicious refried beans recipe. Another great thing about pressure cooking is that you still retain the flavor of the dish as if it were cooked traditionally. The pressure cooker setting can cook your food up to 70% faster than traditional cooking. You can cook on low or high for up to 99 minutes using the pressure cooker function.
The Fagor America 670041960 is also a slow cooker. In my household, the slow cooker gets a lot of use. Slow cookers are just…convenient (there’s that word again). With a slow cooker, you can get that juicy perfectly tender pulled pork for example. It will taste like a professional chef made it.
The slow cooker is a must have kitchen appliance for me. You can program your slow cooker to start while you’re at work, and by the time you get home, it’s ready and waiting for you. With the slow cooker function, you can set it to cook on high or low for up to 10 hours.

- Multicooker: yogurt maker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker
- Removable, dishwasher safe ceramic non-stick cooking pot
